Wesley's Notes for 2 Kings 1:1


1:1 Moab - This had been subdued by David, as Edom was; and upon the division of his kingdom, Moab was adjoined to that of Israel, and Edom to that of Judah, each to that kingdom upon which it bordered. But when the kingdoms of Israel and Judah were weak and forsaken by God, they took that opportunity to revolt from them; Moab here, and Edom a little after.

    For me, 2 Kings 1 shows me how faith in God is needed in our life. Elijah's faith in God was so strong he did nto even fear these men who came to get him. He just told them the God he serve would rain fire on them. I strive daily to get this type of faith. The good news is we all have all our life to work this type of faith into our lives
