John Gill's Exposition of the Whole Bible

For it was said to me by the word of the Lord,.... By the angel that was sent to him, who gave him his message and instructions; which he was persuaded came from the Lord himself, and therefore looked upon himself under obligation to regard them as such:

thou shall eat no bread, &c. the same that he observed to the king, 1 Kings 13:9.

John Trapp Complete Commentary

1 Kings 13:17 For it was said to me by the word of the LORD, Thou shalt eat no bread nor drink water there, nor turn again to go by the way that thou camest.

Ver. 17. For it was said.] Heb., A word was. Tremellius rendereth it, Verbum edixit mihi ex verbo Iehovae, and expoundeth it of the essential Word of God, Jesus Christ, declaring here the will of his Father. And some other divines hold, that wherever in the Old Testament God is brought in speaking, we are to understand it of the second person in Trinity.
