SEV Biblia, Chapter 22:18 Y el rey de Israel dijo a Josafat: Â¿No te lo había yo dicho? Ninguna cosa buena profetizará él acerca de mí, sino solamente mal.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 18. And the king of Israel said unto Jehoshaphat , etc.] Plainly perceiving that the prophet foretold that he should fall in battle: did not I tell thee that he would prophesy no good concerning me, but evil ? intimating that this proceeded from spite and malice, from ill will to him and hatred of him, and was not from the Lord, and therefore not to be regarded; he had told him three years ago his life should go for letting Benhadad go; but it had not proved true, and no more would this; and Jehoshaphat being an easy man, and too credulous, believed what Ahab said of the character of this prophet, or otherwise it is not to be accounted for that he should go with him to war after such a declaration made.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 15-28 - The greatest kindness we can do to one that is going in a dangerou way, is, to tell him of his danger. To leave the hardened crimina without excuse, and to give a useful lesson to others, Micaiah relate his vision. This matter is represented after the manner of men: we ar not to imagine that God is ever put upon new counsels; or that he need to consult with angels, or any creature, about the methods he shoul take; or that he is the author of sin, or the cause of any man' telling or believing a lie. Micaiah returned not the blow of Zedekiah yet, since he boasted of the Spirit, as those commonly do that know least of the Holy Spirit's operations, the true prophet left him to be convinced of his error by the event. Those that will not have their mistakes set right in time, by the word of God, will be undeceived when it is too late, by the judgments of God. We should be ashamed of what we call trials, were we to consider what the servants of God have endured. Yet it will be well, if freedom from trouble prove not mor hurtful to us; we are more easily allured and bribed int unfaithfulness and conformity to the world, than driven to them.
