SEV Biblia, Chapter 20:22 Â¶ Vino luego el profeta al rey de Israel y le dijo: Ve, fortalécete, y considera y mira lo que has de hacer; porque pasado el año, el rey de Siria ha de venir contra ti.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 22. And the prophet came to the king of Israel , etc.] The same that came to him before: and said unto him, go, strengthen thyself ; exhorted him to fortify his cities, especially Samaria, and increase his army, that he might be able to oppose the king of Syria: and mark, and see what thou doest : observe his moral and religious actions, and take heed that he did not offend the Lord by them, as well as make military preparations: for at the return of the year the king of Syria will come up against thee ; about the same time in the next year, at the spring of the year, when kings go out to war, (see 2 Samuel 11:1).
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 22-30 - Those about Benhadad advised him to change his ground. They take it for granted that it was not Israel, but Israel's gods, that beat them; but they speak very ignorantly of Jehovah. They supposed that Israel ha many gods, to whom they ascribed limited power within a certai district; thus vain were the Gentiles in their imaginations concernin God. The greatest wisdom in worldly concerns is often united with the most contemptible folly in the things of God.
