1 Kings 18:29

(28) But none answered.--The sacred writer, in his horror, will not say that she was dead.

Upon an ass.--Rather, the ass, which had borne her while she was living. The omission of every detail, the narration of the naked facts in the simplest words, without pausing to say so much as a single word respecting the Levite's or the old man's feelings, is a striking example of the difference of the historic method of ancient and modern times.
