Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Kings 17:6

_ _ the ravens brought him bread — The idea of such unclean and voracious birds being employed to feed the prophet has appeared to many so strange that they have labored to make out the Orebim, which in our version has been rendered “ravens,” to be as the word is used (in Ezekiel 27:27) “merchants”; or Arabians (2 Chronicles 21:16; Nehemiah 4:7); or, the citizens of Arabah, near Beth-shan (Joshua 15:6; Joshua 18:18). But the common rendering is, in our opinion, preferable to these conjectures. And, if Elijah was miraculously fed by ravens, it is idle to inquire where they found the bread and the flesh, for God would direct them. After the lapse of a year, the brook dried up, and this was a new trial to Elijah’s faith.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Kings 17:6

And flesh — Not raw, but boiled by the ministry of some angel or man, and left in some place 'till the ravens came for it: in all which, there is nothing incredible, considering the power and providence of God.
