Wesley's Notes for 1 Kings 20:35


20:35 In the word - ln the name, and by the command of God, whereofdoubtless he had informed him. Smite me - So as to wound me, ver.#37|.He speaks what God commanded him, though it was to his own hurt; by whichobedience to God, he secretly reproacheth Ahab's disobedience in a fareasier matter. And this the prophet by God's appointment desires, thatlooking like a wounded soldier, he might have the more free access to theking. Refused - Not out of contempt of God's command, but probably, intenderness to his brother.
