    VERSE (10) -
    1Ki 19:2 Ac 23:12

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 20:10

    Y Ben-adad tornó a enviarle a decir: Así me hagan los dioses, y así me añadan, que el polvo de Samaria no bastará a los puños de todo el pueblo que me sigue.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Kings 20:10

    Verse 10. If the
    dust of Samaria shall suffice] This is variously understood. Jonathan translates thus: "If the dust of Shomeron shall be sufficient for the soles of the feet of the people that shall accompany me;" i.e., I shall bring such an army that there will scarcely be room for them to stand in Samaria and its vicinity.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 10. And
    Benhadad sent unto him, and said , etc.] That is, to Ahab: the gods do so unto me, and more also ; bring greater evils upon me than I can think or express: if the dust of Samaria shall suffice for handfuls for all the people that follow me , signifying that he made no doubt of it of reducing it to dust by numbers of men he should bring with him, which would be so many, that if each was to take an handful of dust of the ruins of Samaria, there would not enough for them all; which was an hectoring and parabolical speech, uttered in his wrath and fury.

    Ver. 11 And the king of Israel answered and said , etc.] Very mildly and very wisely: tell him, let not him that girdeth on his harness boast himself as he that putteth it off ; that is, he that prepares for the battle as he that has got the victory; the sense is, let no man triumph before the battle is over and the victory won; the events of war are uncertain; the battle is not always to the strong.


    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-11 - Benhadad sent Ahab a very insolent demand. Ahab sent a very disgracefu submission; sin brings men into such straits, by putting them out of the Divine protection. If God do not rule us, our enemies shall: guil dispirits men, and makes them cowards. Ahab became desperate. Men wil part with their most pleasant things, those they most love, to sav their lives; yet they lose their souls rather than part with an pleasure or interest to prevent it. Here is one of the wisest saying that ever Ahab spake, and it is a good lesson to all. It is folly to boast of any day to come, since we know not what it may bring forth Apply it to our spiritual conflicts. Peter fell by self-confidence Happy is the man who is never off his watch.
