  • 1 After the death of Ahab, Moab rebelled against Israel.
    2 Now Ahaziah fell through the lattice in his upper chamber in Samaria, and lay sick; so he sent messengers, telling them, "Go, inquire of Baal-zebub, the god of Ekron, whether I shall recover from this sickness."
    3 But the angel of the LORD said to Elijah the Tishbite, "Arise, go up to meet the messengers of the king of Samaria, and say to them, 'Is it because there is no God in Israel that you are going to inquire of Baal-zebub, the god of Ekron?
    4 Now therefore thus says the LORD, You shall not come down from the bed to which you have gone up, but you shall surely die.'" So Elijah went.
    5 The messengers returned to the king, and he said to them, "Why have you returned?"
    6 And they said to him, "There came a man to meet us, and said to us, 'Go back to the king who sent you, and say to him, Thus says the LORD, Is it because there is no God in Israel that you are sending to inquire of Baal-zebub, the god of Ekron? Therefore y
    7 He said to them, "What kind of man was he who came to meet you and told you these things?"
    8 They answered him, "He wore a garment of hair, with a belt of leather about his waist." And he said, "It is Elijah the Tishbite."
    9 Then the king sent to him a captain of fifty men with his fifty. He went up to Elijah, who was sitting on the top of a hill, and said to him, "O man of God, the king says, 'Come down.'"
    10 But Elijah answered the captain of fifty, "If I am a man of God, let fire come down from heaven and consume you and your fifty." Then fire came down from heaven and consumed him and his fifty.
    11 Again the king sent to him another captain of fifty men with his fifty. And he answered and said to him, "O man of God, this is the king's order, 'Come down quickly!'"
    12 But Elijah answered them, "If I am a man of God, let fire come down from heaven and consume you and your fifty." Then the fire of God came down from heaven and consumed him and his fifty.

이해하기(Understanding)
Ahaziah, the king after Ahaz, was injured after falling through the lattice (a wooden screen or fence) in his room. However, instead of asking God, he sent messengers to ask Baal-zebub if he would be healed. God sent Elijah to tell the messengers that Ahaziah would never be able to get out of bed and die, and they repeated this to Ahaziah (vv. 1-6). Upon hearing the messengers, Ahaziah knew that it came from Elijah. So he sent one of his captains with of fifty soldiers to capture Elijah. However, when they came to Elijah, fire came down from heaven and consumed all of them. The king became angry and again sent another platoon of fifty men, and the result was the same (vv. 7-12).

적용하기(Applying)
Who is God?
God is the first person we should seek. God did not like that when King Ahaziah was injured, he went to Baal-zebub, the god of Ekron, instead of Him. When I’m in trouble, who do I look for or turn first? Is there something you should primarily be asking God for/about?

5. What is the lesson for me?
Be humble before God. King Ahaziah, instead of repenting, sent soldiers to arrest Elijah after being represented with God’s Word. How do I react when I get words of warning or discipline? How do I respond to God’s Truth being presented to me?

기도하기(Praying)
Help me to seek the answers to my problems in You and to live in humility, obeying Your Word.
