Then Asa was wroth with the seer
For this faithful reproof of him, which was another instance of his sin and folly:
and put him in a prison house;
in a very strait place, in which he could not turn himself, what we call "little ease"; some say it was the stocks, others a pillory he put him into:
for he was in a rage with him because of this thing;
his passion rose very high, and to which he gave way, and was his infirmity:
and Asa oppressed some of the people the same time;
by fines and imprisonments, such as perhaps expressed their disapprobation of his league with the king of Syria, and of his ill usage of the prophet.
