“And he said unto them, What manner of man was he which came up to meet you, and told you these words?”
King James Version (KJV)
1:5 Why, &c. - Before you have been at Ekron: which he knew by their quick return.
1:8 An hairy man - His garment was rough and hairy, such as were worn by eminent persons in Greece, in ancient times; and were the proper habit of the prophets. Girdle - As John the baptist also had. That by his very outward habit, he might represent Elijah, in whose spirit and power he came.
1:9 Man of God - So he calls him by way of scorn. Come - The king commands thee to come to him: which if thou refuseth, I am to carry thee by force.
