SEV Biblia, Chapter 21:9 Y las cartas que escribió decían así: Proclamad ayuno, y poned a Nabot a la cabecera del pueblo;
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Kings 21:9 Verse 9. Proclaim a fast] Intimate that there is some great calamity coming upon the nation, because of some evil tolerated in it.
Set Naboth on high] Bring him to a public trial.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 9. And she wrote in the letters, saying, proclaim a fast , etc.] Pretending fears of some dreadful calamity coming upon the nation, and therefore fasting and humiliation were necessary to avert it, and it would be right to inquire what crimes were committed by men among them, and punish them for them; and intimated to them that Naboth should be chosen as the great offender, and be accused, condemned, and put to death, R.
Joseph Kimchi thinks the phrase signifies “call an assembly or congregation”; convene a court of judicature, from the use of the word in the Talmudic language f446 ; and so it is thought it is used in ( Jeremiah 36:6) and indeed it can hardly be thought that Jezebel should have much notion of fasting; and besides, if it was a public fast, why should it be proclaimed only in Jezreel, and not throughout the kingdom? and set Naboth on high among the people; the court being set, bring him to the bar and arraign him; perhaps in their courts of judicature there was a high place above the heads of the people, where criminals accused used to stand when they took their trials, that they might be seen and heard by all in court.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 5-16 - When, instead of a help meet, a man has an agent for Satan, in the for of an artful, unprincipled, yet beloved wife, fatal effects may be expected. Never were more wicked orders given by any prince, than thos Jezebel sent to the rulers of Jezreel. Naboth must be murdered unde colour of religion. There is no wickedness so vile, so horrid, but religion has sometimes been made a cover for it. Also, it must be don under colour of justice, and with the formalities of legal process. Le us, from this sad story, be amazed at the wickedness of the wicked, an the power of Satan in the children of disobedience. Let us commit the keeping of our lives and comforts to God, for innocence will not alway be our security; and let us rejoice in the knowledge that all will be set to rights in the great day.
