    SEV Biblia, Chapter 20:38

    Y el profeta se fue, y se puso delante del rey en el camino, y se disfrazů con un velo sobre los ojos.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Kings 20:38

    Verse 38.
    Disguised himself with ashes upon his face.] It does not immediately appear how putting ashes upon his face could disguise him.

    Instead of rpa apher, dust, Houbigant conjectures that it should be dpa aphad, a fillet or bandage. It is only the corner of the last letter which makes the difference; for the d daleth and r resh are nearly the same, only the shoulder of the former is square, the latter round. That bandage, not dust, was the original reading, seems pretty evident from its remains in two of the oldest versions, the Septuagint and the Chaldee; the former has kai katedhsato en telamwni touv ofqalmouv autou, "And he bound his eyes with a fillet." The latter has yhwny[ ayrp[mb Żyrkw ukerich bemaaphira einohi; "And he covered his eyes with a cloth." The MSS. of Kennicott and Deuteronomy Rossi contain no various reading here; but bandage is undoubtedly the true one. However, in the way of mortification, both the Jews and Hindoos put ashes upon their heads and faces, and make themselves sufficiently disgusting.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 38. So the prophet departed, and waited for the king by the way , etc.] As he went from Aphek, the place where the battle had been fought, to Samaria, his royal seat: and disguised himself with ashes upon his face ; the Targum is, he covered his eyes with a vail, or piece of cloth, which he wrapped about his head, as men do when they have got a wound or bruise in such a part, which seems very probable; for had he besmeared his face with ashes, clay, or dust, or any such thing, he could not so easily have got it off, as in ( 1 Kings 20:41).

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 31-43 - This encouragement
    sinners have to repent and humble themselves befor God; Have we not heard, that the God of Israel is a merciful God? Have we not found him so? That is gospel repentance, which flows from a apprehension of the mercy of God, in Christ; there is forgiveness with him. What a change is here! The most haughty in prosperity often ar most abject in adversity; an evil spirit will thus affect a man in bot these conditions. There are those on whom, like Ahab, success is il bestowed; they know not how to serve either God or their generation, or even their own true interests with their prosperity: Let favour be showed to the wicked, yet will he not learn righteousness. The prophe designed to reprove Ahab by a parable. If a good prophet were punishe for sparing his friend and God's when God said, Smite, of much sore punishment should a wicked king be thought worthy, who spared his enem and God's, when God said, Smite. Ahab went to his house, heavy an displeased, not truly penitent, or seeking to undo what he had don amiss; every way out of humour, notwithstanding his victory. Alas! man that hear the glad tidings of Christ, are busy and there till the da of salvation is gone __________________________________________________________________
