And you shall speak unto him, saying, Thus says the LORD, Have you killed, and also taken possession? And you shall speak unto him, saying, Thus says the LORD, In the place where dogs licked the blood of Naboth shall dogs lick your blood, even yours.
Read Chapter 21
George Leo Haydock
Possession, by desire; though he was yet only on the road. (Menochius)
Perhaps he had sent his servants before. (Haydock)
Place, not precisely, as Achab was slain in Samaria. (Menochius)
But Naboth's vineyard, perhaps, was not far distant from the pool, where dogs licked the blood of the king. (Haydock)
On account of Achab's repentance, the sentence was (ver. 29.; Calmet) rather changed, and his son Joram was substituted in his stead, 4 Kings ix. 25. Jehu, and his captain, Bad acer, were present, when Elias denounced this judgment upon the family of Achab; and they concluded that the prediction regarded Joram. He had, perhaps, taken part with his impious parents, and promoted the same crimes. (Haydock)
