Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Kings 13:31

_ _ bury me in the sepulchre wherein the man of God is buried — His motive in making this request was either that his remains might not be disturbed when the predicted events took place (see 2 Kings 23:18), or he had some superstitious hope of being benefited at the resurrection by being in the same cave with a man of God.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Kings 13:23-34.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Kings 13:31

When I am dead, &c — Tho' he was a lying prophet, yet he desired to die the death of a true prophet. Gather not my Soul with the sinners of Beth — el, but with this man of God: Because what he cried against the altar of Beth — el, shall surely come to pass. Thus by the mouth of two witnesses was it established, if possible to convince Jeroboam.
