If thou return at all
1 Kings 22:28
22:28 If thou return at all. Ahab preferred the counsel of his false prophets to that of Micaiah, God’s true prophet, sending Micaiah to the dungeon and rushing off to his own destruction. Ungodly rulers have, throughout history, sought thus to destroy those who would try to lead them to God’s truth, but they inevitably end up in ignominious death or rejection themselves. It is noteworthy that Micaiah’s final words, in this verse, were echoed a century later by his namesake, the prophet Micah, who cried out: “Hear, all ye people; hearken, O earth, and all that therein is” (Micah 1:2).
