Treasury of Scripture

And Micaiah said, If you certainly return in peace, then has not the LORD spoken by me. And he said, Listen, all you people.

If

Numbers 16:29
If these men die the common death of all men, or if they be visited after the visitation of all men; then the LORD hath not sent me.

Amos 9:10
All the sinners of my people shall die by the sword, which say, The evil shall not overtake nor prevent us.

Acts 13:10,11
And said, O full of all subtilty and all mischief, thou child of the devil, thou enemy of all righteousness, wilt thou not cease to pervert the right ways of the Lord? …

hearken

Matthew 13:9
Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.

Matthew 15:10
And he called the multitude, and said unto them, Hear, and understand:

Mark 7:14
And when he had called all the people unto him, he said unto them, Hearken unto me every one of you, and understand:









(27) And Micaiah said.--Literally as 1Kings 22:28.

If thou certainly return.--"If thou dost return."

And he said--i.e., Micaiah said, turning to the crowd of bystanders, and making them witnesses to his prediction.

Hearken, all ye people.--Rather, Hearken ye, O peoples all! Literally, all of them. The book of the prophet Micah opens with these very words (Micah 1:2). Hitzig thinks they were taken from that passage, and N?ldeke, that they "must be and denote an abbreviation of the entire book." (!) Thenius, on the other hand, justly argues that the whole section before us bears indubitable marks of historical truth, and is probably an extract from the history of Jehoshaphat written by Jehu the son of Hanani (2Chronicles 20:34).

Verse 27. - The courage and fidelity of Micaiah, in not deserting either his prophet-message or his prophet-Master, are admirable, and for his determined appeal to all the people, which was made in the very face of the king or kings, see again Micah 1:2.
