{2 Kings 1:16} And he said 1696 z8762 unto x413 him, Thus x3541 saith 559 z8804 the LORD, 3068 Forasmuch as x3282 x834 thou hast sent 7971 z8804 messengers 4397 to enquire 1875 z8800 of Baalzebub 1176 the god 430 of Ekron, 6138 [is it] not because x4480 x1097 [there is] no x369 God 430 in Israel 3478 to enquire 1875 z8800 of his word? 1697 therefore x3651 thou shalt not x3808 come down 3381 z8799 off x4480 that bed 4296 on which x834 x8033 thou art gone up, 5927 z8804 but x3588 shalt surely y4191 z8800 die. 4191 z8799
Forasmuch:
"But the angel of the LORD said to Elijah the Tishbite, Arise, go up to meet the messengers of the king of Samaria, and say unto them, [Is it] not because [there is] not a God in Israel, [that] ye go to enquire of Baalzebub the god of Ekron? ... Now therefore thus saith the LORD, Thou shalt not come down from that bed on which thou art gone up, but shalt surely die. And Elijah departed." {2Kg 1:3-4} + "And they said unto him, There came a man up to meet us, and said unto us, Go, turn again unto the king that sent you, and say unto him, Thus saith the LORD, [Is it] not because [there is] not a God in Israel, [that] thou sendest to enquire of Baalzebub the god of Ekron? therefore thou shalt not come down from that bed on which thou art gone up, but shalt surely die." {2Kg 1:6} + "And thou shalt say unto Pharaoh, Thus saith the LORD, Israel [is] my son, [even] my firstborn: ... And I say unto thee, Let my son go, that he may serve me: and if thou refuse to let him go, behold, I will slay thy son, [even] thy firstborn." {Exd 4:22-23} + "And it was [so], when Ahijah heard the sound of her feet, as she came in at the door, that he said, Come in, thou wife of Jeroboam; why feignest thou thyself [to be] another? for I [am] sent to thee [with] heavy [tidings]. ... And all Israel shall mourn for him, and bury him: for he only of Jeroboam shall come to the grave, because in him there is found [some] good thing toward the LORD God of Israel in the house of Jeroboam." {1Kg 14:6-13} + "Arise, go down to meet Ahab king of Israel, which [is] in Samaria: behold, [he is] in the vineyard of Naboth, whither he is gone down to possess it. ... Him that dieth of Ahab in the city the dogs shall eat; and him that dieth in the field shall the fowls of the air eat." {1Kg 21:18-24} + "And Micaiah said, If thou return at all in peace, the LORD hath not spoken by me. And he said, Hearken, O people, every one of you." {1Kg 22:28}
Baalzebub:
Literally, "the lord of flies;" or, as the LXX render, Βααλ μυεαν θεον, Baal the fly god. See note on "And the LORD did so; and there came a grievous swarm [of flies] into the house of Pharaoh, and [into] his servants' houses, and into all the land of Egypt: the land was corrupted by reason of the swarm [of flies]." {Exd 8:24}.
on which thou art 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 by 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. See note on "Unstable as water, thou shalt not excel; because thou wentest up to thy father's bed; then defiledst thou [it]: he went up to my couch." {Gen 49:4} + "So Gehazi followed after Naaman. And when Naaman saw [him] running after him, he lighted down from the chariot to meet him, and said, [Is] all well?" {2Kg 5:21} + "Surely I will not come into the tabernacle of my house, nor go up into my bed;" {Psa 132:3}
