1 Kings 20:36



36 Then said he to him, Because thou hast not obeyed the voice of the LORD, behold, as soon as thou hast departed from me, a lion will slay thee. And as soon as he had departed from him, a lion found him, and slew him.

Commentary on this verse  

By Henry MacLagan

Verse 36. Wherefore it is the judgment of Divine Truth, that he who disregards conscience, and therefore is not willing to endure temptations, will be devastated by falsities, as soon as, from his state of evil, he has rejected truths. And this is actually fulfilled in the case of him who resists evil externally, but not internally or from spiritual good.
