SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:15 Entonces el ángel del SEÑOR dijo a Elías: Desciende con él; no tengas miedo de él. Y él se levantó, y descendió con él al rey.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Kings 1:15 Verse 15. And the angel of the Lord said-Go down with him] This is an additional proof that Elijah was then acting under particular inspirations: he had neither will nor design of his own. He waited to know the counsel, declare the will, and obey the command, of his God.
And he arose, and went down] He did not even regard his personal safety or his life; he goes without the least hesitation to the king, though he had reason to suppose he would be doubly irritated by his prediction, and the death of one hundred of his men. But with all these consequences he had nothing to do; he was the ambassador of the King eternal, and his honour and life were in the hands of his Master.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 15. And the angel of the Lord said unto Elijah , &e.] The same as in ( 2 Kings 1:3) or “had said” f7 , as some render it, before this captain came: go down with him ; the captain and his men: and be not afraid of him ; of King Ahaziah, whom he might fear, because of the message he had sent him, that he should die of that sickness, and for turning back his messengers to the god of Ekron, and for destroying his two captains and their fifties; nor of his mother Jezebel, who had threatened his life for killing her prophets: and he arose, and went down with him unto the king ; boldly and courageously, not fearing his wrath; so that the captain not only had his life and the life of his men spared, but answered the end of his message also.
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 __________________________________________________________________
