Bible Commentary for 1 Kings 22:35

Wesley's Notes for 1 Kings 22:35


22:34 The joints - Where the several parts of his armour were joinedtogether. The only place about him where this arrow of death could findentrance. No armour is proof against the darts of divine vengeance. Casethe criminal in steel, and it is all one: he that made him, can make hissword approach him. And that which to us seems altogether casual, comesby the determinate counsel of God.

22:37 Died - Finding too late the truth of Micaiah's words; andZedekiah's horns of iron, pushing not the Syrians, but himself,into destruction.
