His mind being greatly affected with the word brought to him, partly on his own account, who, by a lie his conscience must accuse him of, had been the means of seducing the man of God, and partly on his account, who was threatened with death for complying with him: saying, thus saith the Lord;
being obliged to deliver, in the name of the Lord, what was said unto him: forasmuch as thou hast disobeyed the mouth of the Lord;
the order that came out of his mouth, as follows: and hast not kept the commandment which the Lord thy God commanded
not to eat nor drink in Bethel.
