John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Kings 21:29

Humbleth himself — His humiliation was real, though not lasting, and accordingly pleasing to God. This discovers the great goodness of God, and his readiness to shew mercy. It teaches us to take notice of that which is good, even in the worst of men. It gives a reason why wicked persons often prosper: God rewards what little good is in them. And it encourages true penitents. If even Ahab goes to his house reprieved, doubtless they shall go to their houses justified.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

1 Kings 21:29

Seest thou how Ahab humbleth himself before me? because he humbleth himself before me, I will not bring the evil in his days: [but] in his (l) son's days will I bring the evil upon his house.

(l) Meaning, in Joram's time, (2 Kings 9:26).
