Or, for your convenience I have typed the verses below from the
New Living Testament (NLT).
Thank You for meeting me, LORD.
I welcome you into this place.
Please prepare my heart Jehovah.
Thank you for insight.
God uses story to prepare our hearts for truth.
35. Meanwhile, the LORD instructed one of the group of prophets to say to another man, "Hit me!" But the man refused to hit the prophet.
36. Then the prophet told him, "Because you have not obeyed the voice of the LORD, a lion will kill you as soon as you leave me." And when he had gone, a lion did attack and kill him.
37. Then the prophet turned to another man and said, "Hit me!" So he struck the prophet and wounded him.
38. The Prophet placed a bandage over his eyes to disguise himself and then waited beside the road for the king.
39. As the king passed by, the prophet called out to him, "Sir I was in the thick of battle, and suddenly a man brought me a prisoner. He said, 'Guard this man; if for any reason he gets away, you will either die or pay a fine of seventy-five pounds of silver!'
40. But while I was busy doing something else, the prisoner disappeared!"
"Well, it's your own fault," the king replied. "You have brought the judgment on yourself."
41. Then the prophet quickly pulled the bandage from his eyes, and the king of Israel recognized him as one of the prophets.
42. The prophet said to him, "This is what the LORD says: Because you have spared the man I said must be destroyed, now you must die in his place, and your people.
43. So the king of Israel went home to Samaria angry and sullen.
1 Kings 20:35-43 NLT
