Bible Commentary for 1 Kings 20:43

Wesley's Notes for 1 Kings 20:43


20:42 Thy life - What was the great sin of Ahab in this action,for which God so severely punisheth him? The great dishonour herebydone to God, in suffering so horrid a blasphemer, to go unpunished, whichwas contrary to an express law, #Lev 24:16|. And God had deliveredhim into Ahab's hand, for his blasphemy, as he promised to do,ver.#28|, by which act of his providence, compared with that law, itwas most evident, that this man was appointed by God to destruction, butAhab was so far from punishing this blasphemer, that he doth not somuch as rebuke him, but dismisseth him upon easy terms, and takes notthe least care for the reparation of God's honour, and the people werepunished for their own sins, which were many, and great; though God tookthis occasion to inflict it.
