commanded the angel

1 Chronicles 21:27

21:27 commanded the angel. According to Psalm 103:20-21, God’s angels “excel in strength,” “do His commandments,” “hearken to the voice of His word,” and “do His pleasure.” Thus, this particular “angel of the LORD” (I Chronicles 21:12), was “sent” by God (I Chronicles 21:15), wielded “the sword of the LORD” (I Chronicles 21:12) in a destroying pestilence, gave instructions from God to the prophet Gad (I Chronicles 21:18), and finally obeyed God’s command to sheath his sword (I Chronicles 21:27). These verses thus provide certain significant insights into God’s use of angels to accomplish His will with His people.
