And, behold, there came a prophet unto Ahab king of Israel,
&c.] Supposed by the Jewish writers to be Micaiah the son of Imlah, ( 1 Kings 22:9 ) one of those perhaps that Obadiah hid in the cave, and now is sent out publicly on an errand to Ahab:
saying, thus saith the Lord, hast thou seen all this great multitude?
considered what a vast number Benhadad's army consisted of:
behold, I will deliver it into thine hand this day;
as great as it is:
and thou shalt know that I am the Lord;
and not Baal, who can save by few as well as by many, and from a great multitude.
