SEV Biblia, Chapter 21:27 Y acaeció cuando Acab oyó estas palabras, que rasgó sus vestidos, y puso cilicio sobre su carne, y ayunó, y durmió en cilicio, y anduvo humillado.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Kings 21:27 Verse 27. He rent his clothes] He was penetrated with sorrow, and that evidently unfeigned.
Put sackcloth upon his flesh] He humbled himself before God and man.
And fasted] He afflicted his body for his soul's benefit.
Lay in sackcloth] Gave the fullest proof that his repentance was real.
And went softly.] Walked barefooted; so the Chaldee, Syriac, and Arabic.
The Vulgate has demisso capite, "with his head hanging down." Houbigant translates went groaning. Jarchi says that the word fa at, used here, signifies to be unshod. This is its most likely sense. All these things prove that Ahab's repentance was genuine; and God's approbation of it puts it out of doubt. The slow and measured pace which always accompanies deep and reflective sorrow is also alluded to by AEschylus, where the Chorus are thus shortly addressed on the defeat of Xerxes. - AESCH. Pers. 1073.
goasqÆ abrobatai "With light and noiseless step lament."
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 __________________________________________________________________
