New Defender's Study Bible Notes

13:21 not kept the commandment. It was ironic that—like Balaam—the Lord constrained the apostate prophet to utter one more inspired prophecy, whereby he pronounced God’s judgment on the true prophet for yielding to the temptation by which he (the apostate prophet) had persuaded the true prophet to disobey God’s Word. It is dangerous for a believer to go against the revealed Word of God (especially as now codified in the Scriptures) even when so urged by an apparently spiritual believer. Compare Galatians 1:8,9; II Corinthians 11:13-15; Matthew 24:24.
