Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Kings 20:8 Verse 8. Hearken not unto him] The elders had every thing at stake, and they chose rather to make a desperate defense than tamely to yield to such degrading and ruinous conditions.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 8. And all the elders and all the people said unto him , etc.] They were unanimous in their advice: hearken not [unto him], nor consent ; promising, no doubt, that they would stand by him.
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.
