Albert Barnes' Notes on the Whole Bible

The prophet changes, without warning, from speaking in his own person to speaking in the person of God. The transition is abrupt, probably because the compiler follows his materials closely, compressing by omission. One fragment omitted here is preserved in 2 Kings 9:26.

John Trapp Complete Commentary

1 Kings 21:21 Behold, I will bring evil upon thee, and will take away thy posterity, and will cut off from Ahab him that pisseth against the wall, and him that is shut up and left in Israel,

Ver. 21. Behold, I will bring evil.] Here the prophet resumeth and prosecuteth his interrupted speech to Ahab, telling him what to trust to. And the like boldness was used by Athanasius, Hilary, and Lucifer Calaritanus to Constantine, the Arian emperor, whom they spare not to call Herod, Nero, Antichrist, &c. John of Salisbury dealt as plainly also with the Pope, A.D. 1159. Thou hast made a match with mischief, and now thou shalt have thy bellyful of it. "The backslider in heart shall be filled with his own ways," saith Solomon.

And will take away thy posterity.] Which yet Ahab thought to prevent by his begetting seventy sons. [2 Kings 10:1]
