The New John Gill Exposition of the Entire Bible1 Kings 22:20
And the Lord said, who shall persuade Ahab, that he may go up
and fall at Ramothgilead?
&c.] Not that it can be supposed that the
Lord entered into a consultation with the angels upon this subject;
only that it was the decree of God that he should go thither, and fall
by the hand of the man whom he had let go, as a just punishment of him:
and one said on this manner, and another said on that manner;
there was such an altercation among them; it only signifies, that there
are various ways and means, by which the purposes and decrees of God may
be and are brought about.
