John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Kings 17:9

Zarephath — A city between Tyre and Sidon, called Sarepta by St. Luke 4:26, and others. Zidon — To the jurisdiction of that city, which was inhabited by Gentiles. And God's providing for his prophet, first, by an unclean bird, and then by a Gentile, whom the Jews esteemed unclean, was a presage of the calling of the Gentiles, and rejection of the Jews. So Elijah was the first prophet of the Gentiles. Commanded — Appointed or provided, for that she had as yet no revelation or command of God about it, appears from 1 Kings 17:12.
