Arise, go down to meet Ahab king of Israel, which is in
Whose seat was there, his palace where he dwelt; and Benjamin of Tudela says F7, that in his time might be discerned in Samaria the palace of Ahab king of Israel, that is, some traces of it; some connect the last clause with Israel, as if the sense was, that Ahab was king over those tribes of Israel, of which Samaria was the head:
behold, [he is] in the vineyard of Naboth:
or "will be" by the time thou gettest thither; though the Arabic version is, he is "now" in the vineyard of Naboth:
whither he is gone down to possess it;
as if it was his legal inheritance.
