Wesley's Notes for 1 Kings 21:29


21:29 Humbleth himself - His humiliation was real, though not lasting,and accordingly pleasing to God. This discovers the great goodness of God,and his readiness to shew mercy. It teaches us to take notice of that whichis good, even in the worst of men. It gives a reason why wicked personsoften prosper: God rewards what little good is in them. And it encouragestrue penitents. If even Ahab goes to his house reprieved, doubtlessthey shall go to their houses justified.
