Clarke's Commentary on 1-kings 19 :2

So let the gods do - If I do not slay thee, let the gods slay me with the most ignominious death.

Barnes's Commentary on 1-kings 19 :2

The prophet had not long to wait before learning the intentions of the queen. A priest's daughter herself, she would avenge the slaughtered priests; a king's wife and a king's child, she would not quail before a subject. That very night a messenger declared her determination to compass the prophet's death within the space of a day.

So let the gods ... - A common oath about this time (marginal references). The Greek Version prefixes to this another clause, which makes the oath even more forcible, "As surely as thou art Elijah and I am Jezebel, so let the gods," etc.

Wesley's Commentary on 1-kings 19 :2
