    Definitions for 1 Kings 19:7

    Angel - Messenger.

    Clarke's Commentary on 1 Kings 19:7

    The journey is too great for thee - From Beer-sheba to Horeb was about one hundred and fifty miles.

    Barnes' Notes on 1 Kings 19:7

    Arise and eat ... - i. e., "Eat a second time, for otherwise the journey will be beyond thy powers." "The journey" was not simply a pilgrimage to Horeb, which was less than 200 miles distant, and might have been reached in six or seven days. It was to be a wandering in the wilderness, not unlike that of the Israelites when they came out of Egypt; only it was to last forty days instead of forty years.
