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
his passion rose very high, and to which he gave way, and was his infirmity:
and Asa oppressed some of the people the same
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.
