SEV Biblia, Chapter 20:2 Y envió mensajeros a la ciudad a Acab rey de Israel, diciendo:
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 2. And he sent messengers to Ahab king of Israel, into the city , etc.] Who there remained, and attempted not to go forth and meet him, and stop his progress, though he must have passed great part of his dominions to come to Samaria: and said unto him, thus saith Benhadad ; by them, his messengers, as follows. Ver. 3 . Thy silver and thy gold is mine , etc.] Not of right, but reckoning it as good as in his hands, Ahab not being able to resist him: and thy wives also ; for it seems he had more than Jezebel: and thy children ; which were many, for he had no less than seventy sons, ( 2 Kings 10:1), even the goodliest are mine : some aggravate this, as if his view was to commit the unnatural sin with his male children, when in his possession.
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.
