Wesley's Notes for 1 Kings 8:38


8:38 The plague - His sin, which may be called the plague of hisheart, in opposition to the other plagues here mentioned; so the senseis, who, by their afflictions are brought to a true and serious sense oftheir worse and inward plague of their sins, which are most fitly calledthe plague of the heart, because that is both the principal seat of sin,and the fountain from whence all actual sins flow.
