SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:16 Y le dijo: Así dijo el SEÑOR: Por cuanto enviaste mensajeros a consultar a Baal-zebub dios de Ecrón, Â¿por ventura no hay Dios en Israel para consultar en su palabra? No descenderás, por tanto, del lecho en que subiste, antes morirás de cierto.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 16. And he said unto him , etc.] Elijah to King Ahaziah when introduced into his chamber; and after some discourse passed between them, he confirmed what he had said to his messengers, and expressed it in the same language as in ( 2 Kings 1:3,4) Ver. 17 . So he died, according to the word of the Lord which Elijah had spoken , etc.] How long or how soon after this is not said; however, he died of the sickness, and on the bed to which he went up, as he said: and Jehoram reigned in his stead : who was another son of Ahab, and brother of Ahaziah, ( 2 Kings 3:1), in the second year of Jehoram the son of Jehoshaphat king of Judah; but as he must begin his reign in the nineteenth, or in the latter end of the eighteenth year of Jehoshaphat, (see 1 Kings 22:51 2 Kings 3:1) and Jehoshaphat reigned in all twenty five years, ( 1 Kings 22:42), he must live and reign after this six or seven years; this therefore is to be reconciled by observing, that this son of Jehoshaphat was made viceroy, or was taken into partnership in the throne by his father when he went with Ahab to Ramothgilead; and it was in the second year of this his reign with his father that the other Jehoram began his: because he had no son ; that is, Ahaziah, wherefore his brother reigned in his stead.
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 __________________________________________________________________
