6 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 inquire of Baal-zebub the god of Ekron? therefore thou shalt not come down from that bed on which thou art gone up, but shalt surely die.


Commentary on this verse

Verse 6. And thence he perceives that it is opposed to his own falsities, which falsities appertain to the doctrine of faith without charity, while Divine Truth from the Word teaches that salvation ought to be sought for in the genuine good and truth of the Word, and not in the extreme evils and falsities of faith alone which is barren and desolate, the latter course inevitably producing the conjunction of falsity with evil and consequently spiritual death or vastation as to the good and the true.
