    SEV Biblia, Chapter 22:38

    Y lavaron el carro en el estanque de Samaria; lavaron también sus armas; y los perros lamieron su sangre, conforme a la palabra del SEÑOR que había hablado.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Kings 22:38

    Verse 38. The
    dogs licked up his blood] Some of the rabbins think that this was in the very place where Naboth was stoned; see on chap. xxi. 19.

    The Septuagint translates this verse strangely: "And the swine and the dogs licked his blood, and the whores bathed themselves in his blood, according to the word of the Lord." It is certain that the Hebrew words, wxjr twnzh hazzonoth rachatsu, "washed his armour," might be translated as the Septuagint have done; "and the whores (or public women) washed," &c. And so the rabbins seem to have understood the words; but then they suppose that Jezebel had made him two images of prostitutes, which he had with him in the chariot. It is not worth inquiring into the use for which they say these images were made. See Kimchi and Jarchi.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 38. And one washed the chariot in the pool of Samaria , etc.] After the body was taken out, very likely the chariot driver, who drove it into the pool, and plunged it into it, as the word signifies, to cleanse it from the blood of his master: and the dogs licked up his blood ; mixed with the water of the pool; the Septuagint adds, “the swine”, which is not probable, such creatures not being bred in the land of Israel: and they washed his armour ; his coat of mail, through the joints of which the blood issued, and ran upon it. The word is sometimes used for whores, and is so translated here in the Greek version, and by Munster and Castalio; and both Ben Gersom and Abarbinel say, that women, who were harlots, washed here in his blood, mixed with water; and so Josephus f464 writes, that afterwards it was a custom for whores to wash in this pool; though some say two whores were painted on Ahab’s chariot, by the order of Jezebel, to inflame his lust, and these were what were washed; but the word signifies armour, or rather ornaments, clothes, jewels, etc. and now all this was according to the word of the Lord which he spake ; both by Elijah, that as the dogs licked the blood of Naboth, so they should his, as they now did, though not in the same place; nor was it necessary to fulfil the prophecy, (see Gill on “ 1 Kings 21:19”), though some have thought that his blood, mixed with the water of the pool of Samaria, was carried in a stream down to Jezreel, and there licked by the dogs, where Naboth’s was; but chiefly what was spoken by Micaiah is here respected, that thus Ahab fell at Ramothgilead, as he had prophesied, ( Kings 22:17,20,28) and his life went for the life of Benhadad, as he had before declared, ( 1 Kings 20:42).

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 29-40 -
    Ahab basely intended to betray Johoshaphat to danger, that he migh secure himself. See what they get that join with wicked men. How can it be expected that he should be true to his friend, who has been false to his God! He had said in compliment to Ahab, I am as thou art, and no he was indeed taken for him. Those that associate with evil-doers, ar in danger of sharing in their plagues. By Jehoshaphat's deliverance God let him know, that though he was displeased with him, yet he ha not deserted him. God is a friend that will not fail us when othe friends do. Let no man think to hide himself from God's judgment. God directed the arrow to hit Ahab; those cannot escape with life, whom God has doomed to death. Ahab lived long enough to see part of Micaiah' prophecy accomplished. He had time to feel himself die; with what horror must he have thought upon the wickedness he had committed!
