1 Kings 13:28 Meaning and Commentary

1 Kings 13:28

And he went and found his carcass cast in the way, and the ass
and the lion standing by the carcass

1 Kings 13:28 In-Context

26 When the prophet who had brought him back from his way heard [about it], he said, "He is the man of God who disobeyed the command of the Lord. The Lord has given him to the lion, and it has mauled him and killed him, according to the word of the Lord that He spoke to him."
27 Then the old prophet instructed his sons, "Saddle the donkey for me." They saddled it,
28 and he went and found the corpse of the man of God thrown on the road with the donkey and the lion standing beside the corpse. The lion had not eaten the corpse or mauled the donkey.
29 So the prophet lifted the corpse of the man of God and laid it on the donkey and brought it back. The old prophet came into the city to mourn and to bury him.
30 Then he laid the corpse in his own grave, and they mourned over him: "Oh, my brother!"
