Then Moab rebelled against Israel after the death of Ahab.

George Leo Haydock

AD 1849
Rebelled: literally, "prevaricated. "(Haydock) The kings of Israel kept some of the nations, which David had conquered, in subjection, while the kings of Juda ruled over the others. In consequence of the late disaster, these people began to throw off the yoke. (Tirinus) Joram made war upon Moab, chap. iii. 5. God began to punish the house of Achab, by these means. (Calmet) The Moabites refused to pay tribute, (Menochius) as the Israelites would not acknowledge the divine authority. (Haydock)

Richard Challoner

AD 1781
Ochozias sendeth to consult Beelzebub: Elias foretelleth his death: and causeth fire to come down from heaven, upon two captains and their companies.
