    King James Bible - 1 Kings 13:11

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 13:11

    ¶ Y moraba en Bet-el un viejo profeta, al cual vino su hijo, y le contó todo lo que el varón de Dios había hecho aquel día en Bet-el; y contaron también a su padre las palabras que había hablado al rey.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Kings 13:11

    Verse 11. An old
    prophet] Probably once a prophet of the Lord, who had fallen from his steadfastness, and yet not so deeply as to lose the knowledge of the true God, and join with Jeroboam in his idolatries. We find he was not at the king's sacrifice, though his sons were there; and perhaps even they were there, not as idolaters, but as spectators of what was done.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 11. Now there dwelt an old
    prophet in Bethel , etc.] The Targum is, a false prophet, so Josephus f326 ; it is hard to say what he was, a good man or a bad man; if a good man, he was guilty of many things which are not in his favour, as dwelling in such an idolatrous place suffering his sons to attend idolatrous worship, and telling the man of God a premeditated lie; and yet there are several things which seem contrary to his being a bad man, and of an ill character, since he is called an old prophet, did not attend idolatrous worship, showed great respect to the man of God, had the word of God sent unto him concerning him, believed that what he had prophesied should come to pass, buried the man of God in his own grave, and desired his sons to bury him with him. In some copies his name is said to be Micah, as Kimchi observes, and other Jewish writers say the same; though some take him to be Amaziah the priest of Bethel, and others Gersom the son of Moses f328 , but without any foundation; though he now dwelt at Bethel, he was originally of Samaria, ( 2 Kings 23:18), and his sons came and told him all the works that the man of God had done that day in Bethel ; that the altar was rent, and the ashes poured out, as he had said, and that Jeroboam’s hand withered, and was restored upon his prayer to God: the words which he had spoken unto the king ; that one should be born of the family of David, Josiah by name, that should offer the idolatrous priests, and burn the bones of men upon that altar, and that that should be rent, and its ashes poured forth, which was done: them they told also their father ; gave him a particular account of his actions and words.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 11-22 - The old
    prophet's conduct proves that he was not really a godly man When the change took place under Jeroboam, he preferred his ease an interest to his religion. He took a very bad method to bring the goo prophet back. It was all a lie. Believers are most in danger of being drawn from their duty by plausible pretences of holiness. We may wonde that the wicked prophet went unpunished, while the holy man of God wa suddenly and severely punished. What shall we make of this? The judgments of God are beyond our power to fathom; and there is judgment to come. Nothing can excuse any act of wilful disobedience This shows what they must expect who hearken to the great deceiver They that yield to him as a tempter, will be terrified by him as tormentor. Those whom he now fawns upon, he will afterwards fly upon and whom he draws into sin, he will try to drive to despair.
