John Gill's Exposition of the Whole Bible

And, behold, men passed by,.... Travellers on the road; nor did the lion offer to seize on them, nor desert the carcass upon their approach:

and saw the carcass cast in the way, and the lion standing by the carcass; as before described:

and they came and told it in the city where the old prophet dwelt; which was Bethel, by which means he came to have knowledge of it.

John Trapp Complete Commentary

1 Kings 13:25 And, behold, men passed by, and saw the carcase cast in the way, and the lion standing by the carcase: and they came and told [it] in the city where the old prophet dwelt.

Ver. 25. And they came and told it in the city,] i.e., Bethel; the inhabitants whereof could not but hear this sad news with aching and quaking hearts, if they had any sense left. For they could not but hereby see that he was indeed a prophet of God - whose hand was so heavy upon him for not persevering to obey this command - and that therefore whatsoever he had foretold, should in due time be fulfilled, as the old prophet also herehence concluded. [1 Kings 13:32]
