Geneva Bible Translation Notes

2 Chronicles 18:23

Then Zedekiah the son of Chenaanah came near, and smote Micaiah upon the (q) cheek, and said, Which way went the Spirit of the LORD from me to speak unto thee?

(q) By this cruelty his ambition and hypocrisy was discovered; thus the hypocrites boast of the Spirit which they do not have, and declare their malice against them on whom the true Spirit is.
