Baal-zebub Literally, `the lord of flies;' or, as the LXX render, Baal the fly god. See note on
on which thou are gone up In the East there is usually at the end of each chamber a little gallery, raised three or four feet above the floor, with a balustrade in front, to which they go up a few steps: here they place their beds; an allusion to which situation is involved in this declaration of Elijah's, and frequently referred to in the Sacred Scriptures
