SEV Biblia, Chapter 18:46 Y la mano del SEŅOR fue sobre Elías, el cual ciņķ sus lomos, y vino corriendo delante de Acab hasta llegar a Jezreel.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Kings 18:46 Verse 46. Ran before Ahab] Many think that Elijah ran before the king in order to do him honour; and much learned labour has been spent on this passage in order to show that Elijah had put himself at the head of a company of chanters who ran before the king reciting his praises, or the praises of God; a custom which still exists in Arabian countries! I believe all these entirely mistake the writer's meaning: Ahab yoked his chariot, and made all speed to Jezreel. The hand of the Lord, or, as the Targum says, the spirit of strength, came upon Elijah, and he girded up his loins, that is, tucked up his long garments in his girdle, and ran; and notwithstanding the advantage the king had by means of his chariot, the prophet reached Jezreel before him. There is no intimation here that he ran before the horses' heads. All this was intended to show that he was under the peculiar influence and inspiration of the Almighty, that the king might respect and fear him, and not do or permit to be done to him any kind of outrage.
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 __________________________________________________________________
