1 Kings 17:18 Meaning and Commentary

1 Kings 17:18

And she said unto Elijah, what have I to do with thee, O thou
man of God!
&c.] As if she should say, it would have been well for me if I had never seen thy face, or had any conversation with thee; this she said rashly, and in her passion and agony, being extremely affected with the death of her child, which made her forget and overlook all the benefits she had received through the prophet's being with her:

art thou come unto me to call my sin to remembrance, and to slay my
son?
to punish her for her former sins, she was conscious she had been guilty of; for she supposed, that as it was by his prayer that the drought and famine were come upon the land, so it was in the same way that her son's death came, namely, through the prayer of the prophet.

1 Kings 17:18 In-Context

16 The flour jar did not become empty, and the oil jug did not run dry, according to the word of the Lord He had spoken through Elijah.
17 After this, the son of the woman who owned the house became ill. His illness became very severe until no breath remained in him.
18 She said to Elijah, "Man of God, what do we have in common? Have you come to remind me of my guilt and to kill my son?"
19 But Elijah said to her, "Give me your son." So he took him from her arms, brought him up to the upper room where he was staying, and laid him on his own bed.
20 Then he cried out to the Lord and said, "My Lord God, have You also brought tragedy on the widow I am staying with by killing her son?"
