And the prophet took up the carcass of the man of God,.... The lion perhaps made off as soon as he came, or, if he stayed, the prophet was not afraid of him, seeing he did not attempt to devour the carcass, nor touch the ass, nor do any hurt to those that passed by:
and laid it upon the ass, and brought it back; to his own city:
and the old prophet came to the city to mourn, and to bury him; to perform the funeral rites, according to the custom of the place.

1 Kings 13:29 And the prophet took up the carcase of the man of God, and laid it upon the ass, and brought it back: and the old prophet came to the city, to mourn and to bury him.
Ver. 29. And the prophet took up the carcass.] Which the lion, belike, left to him, and went away.
And laid it upon the ass.] Which was kept alive for such a purpose.
And the old prophet came to the city to mourn.] As good cause he had, not more for the man of God, who was Dei frumentum leonis dentibus commolitum, as Ignatius said of himself at his death, than for himself, who had seduced him to such an untimely end.
