SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:14 He aquí ha descendido fuego del cielo, y ha consumido los dos primeros capitanes de cincuenta, con sus cincuenta; sea ahora mi alma de valor delante de tus ojos.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 14. Behold, there came fire down from heaven and burnt up the two captains of the former fifties with their fifties , etc.] He owns the facts, and ascribes the death of them to the true cause, and appears to have an awful sense of the judgment of God on them, fearing the same would befall him and his: therefore let my life now be precious in thy sight ; by sparing it, what is precious and valuable being spared.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 9-18 - Elijah called for fire from heaven, to consume the haughty, darin sinners; not to secure himself, but to prove his mission, and to revea the wrath of God from heaven, against the ungodliness an unrighteousness of men. Elijah did this by a Divine impulse, yet ou Saviour would not allow the disciples to do the like, Lu 9:54. The dispensation of the Spirit and of grace by no means allowed it. Elija was concerned for God's glory, those for their own reputation. The Lor judges men's practices by their principles, and his judgment is according to truth. The third captain humbled himself, and cast himsel upon the mercy of God and Elijah. There is nothing to be got by contending with God; and those are wise for themselves, who lear submission from the fatal end of obstinacy in others. The courage of faith has often struck terror into the heart of the proudest sinner. S thunderstruck is Ahaziah with the prophet's words, that neither he, no any about him, offer him violence. Who can harm those whom God shelters? Many who think to prosper in sin, are called hence lik Ahaziah, when they do not expect it. All warns us to seek the Lor while he may be found __________________________________________________________________
