Forasmuch: 2Ki 1:3-4, 2Ki 1:6; Exo 4:22-23; 1Ki 14:6-13, 1Ki 21:18-24, 1Ki 22:28

Baalzebub: Literally, "the lord of flies;" or, as the LXX render, Βααλ μυεαν θεον, Baal the fly god. See note on Exo 8:24.

on which thou art gone up: In the East there is usually at the end of each chamber a little gallery, raised three or four feet above the floor, with a balustrade in front, to which they go up by a few steps. Here they place their beds; an allusion to which situation is involved in this declaration of Elijah's, and frequently referred to in the Sacred Scriptures. See note on Gen 49:4. 2Ki 5:21; Psa 132:3
