1 Kings 22:7 Meaning and Commentary

1 Kings 22:7

And Jehoshaphat said, is there not here a prophet of the Lord
besides, that we might inquire of him?
] He suspected these to be false prophets, though he would not call them so; nor suggest that they were not the prophets of the Lord, because he would not affront Ahab, who had an opinion of them; and therefore asks, if there were no other that went under the character of a prophet of the Lord, that he might inquire of him for his further satisfaction.

1 Kings 22:7 In-Context

5 He then continued, "But before you do anything, ask God for guidance."
6 The king of Israel got the prophets together - all four hundred of them - and put the question to them: "Should I attack Ramoth Gilead? Or should I hold back?" "Go for it," they said. "God will hand it over to the king."
7 But Jehoshaphat dragged his heels: "Is there still another prophet of God around here we can consult?"
8 The king of Israel told Jehoshaphat, "As a matter of fact, there is still one such man. But I hate him. He never preaches anything good to me, only doom, doom, doom - Micaiah son of Imlah." "The king shouldn't talk about a prophet like that," said Jehoshaphat.
9 So the king of Israel ordered one of his men, "On the double! Get Micaiah son of Imlah."
