SEV Biblia, Chapter 20:26 Pasado el año, Ben-adad reconoció los sirios, y vino a Afec a pelear contra Israel.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Kings 20:26 Verse 26. Ben-hadad numbered the Syrians, and went up to Aphek] There were several towns of this name; see the notes on Josh. xii. 18. It is supposed that the town mentioned here was situated in Libanus, upon the river Adonis, between Heliopolis and Biblos.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 26. And it came to pass at the return of the year , etc.] In the spring, or autumn, as some think, (see Gill on “ 2 Samuel 11:1”) that Benhadad numbered the Syrians ; took a muster of his army, to see if he had got the number he had before: and went up to Aphek, to fight against Israel ; not that in Judah, ( Joshua 15:53), rather that in Asher, ( Joshua 19:30), but it seems to be that which Adrichomius places in Issachar, near to the famous camp of Esdraelon, or valley of Jezreel, where it is probable the king of Syria intended to have fought; the battle; and some travellers, as he observes, say f432 , the ruins of that city are still shown in that great camp or plain, not far from Gilboa, to the east of Mount Carmel, and five miles from Tabor; according to Bunting f433 , it was fourteen miles from Samaria; but it may be Aphaca near Mount Lebanon, and the river Adonis f434 , is meant.
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.
