John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Kings 22:8

One man — In this place, for whom I can speedily send: for there were also other prophets elsewhere in the kingdom, but these were not at hand. Micaiah — Not one of the twelve prophets, who lived about a hundred and fifty years after this time, but another of that name. Let not, &c. — Let us neither hate his person, nor despise his message; but first hear it, and then do as we see cause.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

1 Kings 22:8

And the king of Israel said unto Jehoshaphat, [There is] yet one man, Micaiah the son of Imlah, by whom we may enquire of the LORD: but (h) I hate him; for he doth not prophesy good concerning me, but evil. And Jehoshaphat said, Let not the king say so.

(h) By which we see that the wicked cannot abide to hear the truth, but hate the prophets of God and molest them.
