John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Kings 13:4

Put forth, &c. — To point out the man whom he would have the people lay hands on. The altar — Where it was employed in offering something upon it. Dried up — Or, withered, the muscles and sinews, the instruments of motion, shrunk up. This God did, to chastise Jeroboam for offering violence to the Lord's prophet: to secure the prophet against farther violence: and, that in this example God might shew, how highly he resents the injuries done to his ministers, for the faithful discharge of their office.

(d) The wicked rage against the prophets of God, when they declare God's judgment to them.
