John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Kings 13:6

Thy God — Who hath manifested himself to be thy God and friend, in a singular manner; and therefore will hear thy prayers for me, though he will not regard mine, because I have forsaken him and his worship. Besought — To assure Jeroboam, that what he had said, was not from ill — will to him, and that he heartily desired his reformation, and not his ruin. Restored — Because he repented of that violence, which he intended against that prophet, for which God inflicted it: and that this goodness of God to him, might have led him to repentance; or, if he continued impenitent, leave him without excuse.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

1 Kings 13:6

And the king answered and said unto the man of God, (e) Intreat now the face of the LORD thy God, and pray for me, that my hand may be restored me again. And the man of God besought the LORD, and the king's hand was restored him again, and became as [it was] before.

(e) Though the wicked humble themselves for a time when they feel God's judgment, they return to their old malice and declare that they are but vile hypocrites.
