The New John Gill Exposition of the Entire Bible1 Kings 20:35
And a certain man of the sons of the prophets…
Which the Jews take to be Micaiah, and so Josephus F21, which is
probable; the same that had been with Ahab more than once; and,
whoever he was, it is not unlikely that he was the same, since Ahab
knew him when his disguise was off, (1 Kings 20:41) ,
said unto his neighbour, in the word of the Lord, smite me, I pray
told his neighbour, that by the command of God he was ordered to
bid him smite him, so as to wound him:
and the man refused to smite him;
being his neighbour, and perhaps a
fellow prophet, and having an affection for him.
F21 Antiqu. l. 8. c. 14. sect, 5.
