SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:9 Â¶ Y envió luego a él un capitán de cincuenta con sus cincuenta, el cual subió a él; y he aquí que él estaba sentado en la cumbre del monte. Y él le dijo: Varón de Dios, el rey ha dicho que desciendas.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Kings 1:9 Verse 9. A captain of fifty with his fifty.] It is impossible that such a man as Ahaziah, in such circumstances, could have had any friendly designs in sending a captain and fifty soldiers for the prophet; and the manner in which they are treated shows plainly that they went with a hostile intent.
And he spake unto him, Thou man of God] Thou prophet of the Most High.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 9. Then the king sent unto him a captain of fifty with his fifty , etc.] Not in honour to him, but to bring him by force if he refused to come willingly: and he went up to him, and, behold, he sat on the top of an hill ; generally supposed to be Mount Carmel; and he spake unto him ; at the bottom of the hill, so loud that he might hear him: thou man of God ; or the prophet of the Lord, as the Targum, as thou callest thyself; for this was said in a sneering, flouting, manner: the king hath said, come down ; and in the king’s name he ordered him to come down, signifying, if he would not, he would send his men to fetch him down.
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 __________________________________________________________________
