(23) The Lord said unto him.--How this intimation was given we are not told. The LXX. do not here change "the Lord" into "the angel of the Lord."

Peace be unto thee; fear not.--Comp. Daniel 10:7-9; Daniel 10:19; Ezekiel 1:28 to Ezekiel 2:1; Mark 16:8; Luke 1:13; Luke 2:10; Revelation 1:17, &c. . . .

Verse 23. - Peace, etc. Cf. Daniel 10:19, and John 20:21, 26; Luke 24:36-39. Hence the name of the altar, Jehovah-shalom - "The Lord is peace," is at peace with me.
