SEV Biblia, Chapter 18:18 Y él respondió: Yo no he turbado a Israel, sino tú y la casa de tu padre, dejando los mandamientos del SEÑOR, y siguiendo a los baales.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Kings 18:18 Verse 18. I have not troubled Israel] Here the cause of the dearth is placed on its true ground: the king and the people had forsaken the true God, and God shut up the heavens that there was no rain. Elijah was only the minister whom God used to dispense this judgment.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 18. And he answered , etc.] That is, Elijah, with great boldness and undaunted courage, not fearing the face of the king, being sent to show himself to him in the name of the King of kings: I have not troubled Israel, but thou and thy father’s house ; they, by their sins, were the cause of all the troubles, those sore evil and sad calamities that were upon them: in that ye have forsaken the commandments of the Lord : to have no other gods before him, and not to make images, and worship them, which they had done: and thou hast followed Baalim ; the several Baals, the Sun, moon, and stars, the whole host of heaven, worshipped under this name; or, not content with the Phoenician Baal, or Baal of the Zidonians, followed others, (see Judges 2:11).
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 17-20 - One may guess how people stand affected to God, by observing how the stand affected to his people and ministers. It has been the lot of the best and most useful men, like Elijah, to be called and counted the troublers of the land. But those who cause God's judgments do the mischief, not he that foretells them, and warns the nation to repent.
