SEV Biblia, Chapter 18:45 Y aconteció, estando en esto, que los cielos se oscurecieron con nubes y viento; y hubo una gran lluvia. Y subiendo Acab, vino a Jezreel.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 45. And it came to pass in the mean while , etc.] That the servant was gone with the message to Ahab, and Ahab was getting ready his chariot: that the heaven was black with clouds and wind, and there was a great rain ; which all sprung from the cloud like a man’s hand; and so we are told f406 , that sometimes a little cloud called the ox’s eye is seen on a mount of the Cape of Good Hope, called Tafesbery, when the sky is most serene, and the sea quiet; which is at first scarce so big as a barley corn, and then as a walnut; and presently it extends itself over the whole surface of the mountain: and Ahab rode, and went to Jezreel ; as fast as he could. Ver. 46 . And the hand of the Lord was on Elijah , etc.] Giving him more than common strength of body, as well as courage and fortitude of mind; so the Targum, the spirit of strength from the Lord was with him: and he girded up his loins ; gathered up his long loose garment, and girt it about him, that he might be more fit for travelling: and ran before Ahab to the entrance of Jezreel ; reckoned about sixteen miles from Carmel f407 ; this showed his humility, that he was not elated with the wonderful things God had done by him, and that he bore no ill will to Ahab, but was ready to show him all honour and respect due to him as a king; and that it were his sins, and not his person, he had an aversion to; and that he was not afraid of Jezebel, and her prophets, but entered into the city where she was, to instruct the people, and warn them against her idolatries; though some think he went no further than the gate of the city, prudently avoiding falling into her hands.
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 __________________________________________________________________
