    Definitions for 1 Kings 13:5

    Rent - Divided; broke or tore apart.

    Clarke's Commentary on 1 Kings 13:5

    The altar was also rent - It split or clave of its own accord; and, as the split parts would decline at the top from the line of their perpendicular, so the ashes and coals would fall off, or be poured out.

    Barnes' Notes on 1 Kings 13:5

    We need not suppose a complete shattering of the altar, but rather the appearance of a crack or fissure in the fabric, which, extending from top to bottom, caused the embers and the fragments of the victims to fall until they reached the ground.
