Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Kings 13:18

_ _ an angel spake unto me by the word of the Lord — This circuitous mode of speaking, instead of simply saying, “the LORD spake to me,” was adopted to hide an equivocation, to conceal a double meaning — an inferior sense given to the word “angel” — to offer a seemingly superior authority to persuade the prophet, while really the authority was secretly known to the speaker to be inferior. The “angel,” that is, “messenger,” was his own sons, who were worshippers, perhaps priests, at Beth-el. As this man was governed by self-interest, and wished to curry favor with the king (whose purpose to adhere to his religious polity, he feared, might be shaken by the portents that had occurred), his hastening after the prophet of Judah, the deception he practiced, and the urgent invitation by which, on the ground of a falsehood, he prevailed on the too facile man of God to accompany him back to his house in Beth-el, were to create an impression in the king’s mind that he was an impostor, who acted in opposition to his own statement.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

1 Kings 13:18

He said unto him, I [am] a prophet also as thou [art]; and an (h) angel spake unto me by the word of the LORD, saying, Bring him back with thee into thine house, that he may eat bread and drink water. [But] he lied unto him.

(h) His fault is here double, first in that he did not permit the prophet to obey God's express commandment, and next that he pretended to have a revelation to the contrary.
