SEV Biblia, Chapter 21:20 Y Acab dijo a Elías: Â¿Me has hallado, enemigo mío? Y él respondió: Te he encontrado, porque te has vendido a mal hacer delante del SEÑOR,
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Kings 21:20 Verse 20. Thou hast sold thyself to work evil] See a similar form of speech, Rom. vii. 14. Thou hast totally abandoned thyself to the service of sin. Satan is become thy absolute master, and thou his undivided slave.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 20. And Ahab said to Elijah, hast thou found me, O mine enemy ? etc.] So he reckoned him, because he dealt faithfully with him, and reproved him for his sins, and denounced the judgments of God upon him for them: and he answered, I have found thee ; as a thief, a robber and plunderer, in another’s vineyard; he had found out his sin in murdering Naboth, and unjustly possessing his vineyard, which was revealed to him by the Lord; and now was come as his enemy, as he called him, as being against him, his adversary, not that he hated his person, but his ways and works: because thou hast sold thyself to work evil in the sight of the Lord ; had given up himself wholly to his lusts, was abandoned to them, and as much under the power of them as a man is that has sold himself to another to be his slave; and which he served openly, publicly in the sight of the omniscient God, and in defiance of him. Abarbinel gives another sense of the word we render “sold thyself”, that he “made himself strange”, as if he was ignorant, and did not know what Jezebel had done; whereas he knew fully the whole truth of the matter, and that Naboth was killed through her contrivance, and by her management purposely; and so he did evil in the sight of that God that knows all things, pretending he was ignorant when he was not, and this Elijah found out by divine revelation; so the word is used in ( Genesis 42:6 2 Kings 12:5,7), but the former sense is best, as appears from ( 1 Kings 21:25).
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 17-29 - Blessed Paul complains that he was sold under sin, Ro 7:14, as a poor captive against his will; but Ahab was willing, he sold himself to sin of choice, and as his own act and deed, he loved the dominion of sin Jezebel his wife stirred him up to do wickedly. Ahab is reproved, an his sin set before his eyes, by Elijah. That man's condition is very miserable, who has made the word of God his enemy; and very desperate who reckons the ministers of that word his enemies, because they tel him the truth. Ahab put on the garb and guise of a penitent, yet his heart was unhumbled and unchanged. Ahab's repentance was only what might be seen of men; it was outward only. Let this encourage all tha truly repent, and unfeignedly believe the holy gospel, that if pretending partial penitent shall go to his house reprieved, doubtless a sincere believing penitent shall go to his house justified __________________________________________________________________
