Wesley's Notes for 1 Kings 19:8


19:8 And went - He wandered hither and thither for forty days, 'till atlast he came to Horeb, which in the direct road was not above three orfour days journey. Thither the spirit of the Lord led him, probably beyondhis own intention, that he might have communion with God, in the same placethat Moses had.
