Mount Carmel is situated north of Dora and south of Ptolemais or Acre, from which it is distant, according to Josephus, 120 stadia, or, according to Thevenot, 10 miles; one of its principal points advancing considerably into the Mediterranean, and forming an elevated promontory. It is described as a flattened cone, about 2,000 feet (some say 1,500) in height, very rocky, its sides steep and rugged, and the soil neither deep nor rich. Capt. Mangles says its is now quite barren, though at the north-eastern foot of it there are some pretty olive-grounds. * :42,43 Jos 19:26 1Sa 15:12 2Ki 2:25 Jer 46:18 Am 1:2; 9:3 - the prophets of Baal. * 1Ki 22:6 2Pe 2:1 Re 19:20 - prophets of the groves. * 1Ki 15:13; 16:33 2Ki 13:6 Though {ashairah} certainly denotes in some place a grove, yet it is equally certain, that in others, as here, it must signify an idol; and it is thought by learned men to be the same as Ashtoreth, or Astarte the Syrian Venus. - eat at Jezebel's table. * 1Ki 19:1,2 2Ki 9:22 Re 2:20 VERSE 20 - gathered. * 1Ki 22:9 VERSE 21 - How long. * De 4:35 2Ki 17:41 Zep 1:5 Mt 6:24 Lu 6:13 Ro 6:16-22 * 1Co 10:21,22 2Co 6:14-16 Re 3:15,16 - opinions. or, thoughts. if the Lord. * :39 Ex 5:1,2 Jos 24:15,23,24 1Sa 7:3 1Ch 17:26 2Ch 33:13 * Ps 100:3 - answered. * Ge 24:50; 44:16 Job 40:4,5 Mt 22:12,34,36 Ro 3:19; 6:21 VERSE 22 - I only. * 1Ki 19:10,14; 20:13,32,35,38; 22:6-8 Ro 11:3 - Baal's prophets. * :19,20 Mt 7:13-15 2Ti 4:3,4 2Pe 2:1-3 VERSE 23 VERSE 24 - answereth by fire. * :38 Le 9:24 Jud 6:21 1Ch 21:26 2Ch 7:1,3 - and said. * 2Sa 14:19 - It is well spoken.

Heb. with a great voice. for he is a god. * Isa 41:23 - either. Such were the absurd and degrading notions which the heathens entertained of their gods. "Vishnoo sleeps four months in the year; and to each of the gods some particular business is assigned. Vayoo manages the winds; Vuroonu the waters, etc. According to a number of fables in the pooranus, the gods are often out on journeys or expeditions."

This altar of Jehovah was probably built in the time of the judges; and it was even known among the heathen by the name of the altar of Carmel. Both Tacitus and Suetonius mention an altar on mount Carmel, which Vespasian went to consult: there was no temple nor statue, but simply an altar, venerable for its antiquity. VERSE 31 - twelve stones. * Ex 24:4 Jos 4:3,4,20 Ezr 6:17 Jer 31:1 Eze 37:16-22; 47:13 * Eph 2:20; 4:4-6 Re 7:4-8; 21:12 - saying. * Ge 32:28; 33:20; 35:10 2Ki 17:34 Isa 48:1 VERSE 32 - And with. * Ex 20:24,25 Jud 6:26; 21:4 1Sa 7:9,17 - in the name. * 1Co 10:31 Col 3:17 VERSE 33 - he put. * Ge 22:9 Le 1:6-8 - Fill four. * Da 3:19,25 Joh 11:39,40; 19:33,34 - pour it. * Jud 6:20 VERSE 34 - Do it the second. * 2Co 4:2; 8:21 VERSE 35 - ran.

See on * Jud 5:21 - slew them there. * De 13:5; 18:20 Jer 48:10 Zec 13:2,3 Re 19:20; 20:10 VERSE 41 - Get. * Ec 9:7 Ac 27:34 - a sound, etc. or, a sound of a noise of rain.

Mr. Bruce mentions a similar cloud in Abyssinia, as attending the inundation of the Nile. "Every morning, about nine, a small cloud, not above four feet broad, appears in the east, whirling violently round, as if upon an axis; but arrived near the zenith, it first abates its motion, then loses its form, and extends itself greatly, and seems to call up vapours from all opposite quarters. These clouds having attained nearly the same height, rush against each other with great violence, and put me always in mind of Elijah foretelling rain on Mount Carmel." * Job 8:7 Zec 4:10 - Prepare.

Heb. till thou come to. GOTO NEXT CHAPTER - TREASURY OF SCRIPTURE KNOWLEDGE INDEX
