SEV Biblia, Chapter 18:43 Y dijo a su criado: Sube ahora, y mira hacia el mar. Y él subió, y miró, y dijo: No hay nada. Y él le volvió a decir: Vuelve siete veces.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Kings 18:43 Verse 43. Look toward the sea.] From the top of Mount Carmel the Mediterranean Sea was full in view.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 43. And said to his servant , etc.] Whom some take to be the son of the widow of Sarepta, but he must be too young to be employed in such service as this was: go up now ; still higher on Mount Carmel; than where he was, even to the highest point of it: look towards the sea : or the west, as the Targum, the Mediterranean sea, which lay to the west of the land of Israel: and he went up and looked, and he said, there is nothing ; there was nothing in the sky, or arising out of the sea, that looked like or foreboded rain: and he said, go again seven times ; till he should see something.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 41-46 - Israel, being so far reformed as to acknowledge the Lord to be God, an to consent to the execution of Baal's prophets, was so far accepted that God poured out blessing upon the land. Elijah long continue praying. Though the answer of our fervent and believing supplication does not come quickly, we must continue earnest in prayer, and no faint or give over. A little cloud at length appeared, which soo overspread the heavens, and watered the earth. Great blessings ofte arise from small beginnings, showers of plenty from a cloud of spa long. Let us never despise the day of small things, but hope and wai for great things from it. From what small beginnings have great matter arisen! It is thus in all the gracious proceedings of God with the soul. Scarcely to be perceived are the first workings of his Spirit in the heart, which grow up at last to the wonder of men, and applause of angels. Elijah hastened Ahab home, and attended him. God wil strengthen his people for every service to which his commandments an providence call them. The awful displays of Divine justice and holines dismay the sinner, extort confessions, and dispose to outward obedienc while the impression lasts; but the view of these, with mercy, love and truth in Christ Jesus, is needful to draw the soul to self-abasement, trust, and love. The Holy Spirit employs both in the conversion of sinners; when sinners are impressed with Divine truths they should be exhorted to set about the duties to which the Saviou calls his disciples __________________________________________________________________
