Thy blood - The threatening was so directed at first;but afterwards, upon his humiliation, the punishment was transferredfrom him to his son, as is expressed, ver.#29|,yet upon Ahab's returning to sin, in the next chapter, he brings backthe curse upon himself, and so it is no wonder if it be in some sortfulfilled in him also.
