    VERSE (26) -
    1Ki 17:9 *etc:

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 4:26

    pero a ninguna de ellas fue enviado Elías, sino a Sarepta de Sidn, a una mujer viuda.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Luke 4:26

    Verse 26. Unto none of them was
    Elias sent, save unto Sarepta] The sentence is elliptical, and means this: To none of them was Elias sent; he was not sent except to Sarepta; for the widow at Sarepta was a Sidonian, not a widow of Israel. PEARCE.-Sarepta was a pagan city in the country of Sidon, in the vicinity of Galilee.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 26. But unto none of them was
    Elias sent , etc.] That is, to none of the poor widows in the land of Israel was the prophet sent, to supply them with food, and relieve them in their famishing circumstances, as might most reasonably have been expected: save unto Sarepta, a city of Sidon ; which in ( 1 Kings 17:10) is called Zarephath; and by the Septuagint there, Sarepta of Sidon, as here.

    Pliny speaks of it by the same name, and reckons it to Sidon: unto a woman that was a widow : she is said by the Jews f234 , to be the mother of Jonah the prophet. Our Lord meant to observe, by this instance, as by the following, that God bestows his favours on persons in a sovereign way, and sometimes upon the most unlikely; as in a time of famine, he overlooked the poor widows in Israel, his peculiar people, and sent his prophet to a Gentile woman in one of the cities of Sidon; and therefore they should cease to wonder if he wrought his miracles in other places, and not in his own country; since this was agreeable to the divine procedure in other cases, especially since they were a cavilling and unbelieving people.

    The Jews say f235 , that in all that generation there was not found any one that was worthy, as this woman.


    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 14-30 - Christ taught in their synagogues, their places of public worship where they met to read, expound, and apply the word, to pray an praise. All the gifts and graces of the Spirit were upon him and of him, without measure. By Christ, sinners may be loosed from the bond of guilt, and by his Spirit and grace from the bondage of corruption He came by the word of his gospel, to bring light to those that sat in the dark, and by the power of his grace, to give sight to those tha were blind. And he preached the acceptable year of the Lord. Le sinners attend to the Saviour's invitation when liberty is thu proclaimed. Christ's name was Wonderful; in nothing was he more so tha in the word of his grace, and the power that went along with it. We ma well wonder that he should speak such words of grace to such graceles wretches as mankind. Some prejudice often furnishes an objectio against the humbling doctrine of the cross; and while it is the word of God that stirs up men's enmity, they will blame the conduct or manne of the speaker. The doctrine of God's sovereignty, his right to do his will, provokes proud men. They will not seek his favour in his own way and are angry when others have the favours they neglect. Still is Jesu rejected by multitudes who hear the same message from his words. Whil they crucify him afresh by their sins, may we honour him as the Son of God, the Saviour of men, and seek to show we do so by our obedience.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    4:26 {Unto Zarephath} (eis sarepta). The modern
    village Surafend on the coast road between Tyre and Sidon. {Unto a woman that was a widow} (pros gunaika ceran). Literally, unto a woman a widow (like our vernacular widow woman). this is an illustration of the proverb from the life of Elijah (#1Ki 17:8,9). this woman was in the land of Sidon or Phoenicia, a heathen, where Jesus himself will go later.
