John Trapp Complete Commentary

1 Kings 21:28 And the word of the LORD came to Elijah the Tishbite, saying,

Ver. 28. And the word of the Lord.] Who had soon seen this - though but feigned and forced - humiliation, and sent words of comfort. O felix poenitentia, quae ad se Dei traxit oculos, saith Jerome. Surely if the leaves of repentance be so medicinal, much more the fruit; - if the shadow of it be so sovereign, what the substance!

Whedon's Commentary on the Bible

28.In his son’s days will I bring the evil — Jehovah makes this announcement, not because he will punish the son for the sins of his father, but because he foresees that the son will also do evil in the sight of the Lord, and will, therefore, like his father, deserve punishment.
