1 Kings 22:24

(NIV1984) 1 Kings 22:24 – “Then Zedekiah son of Kenaanah went up and slapped Micaiah in the face.  ‘Which way did the spirit from the LORD go when he went from me to speak to you?’ he asked.”

The slapping, at least, makes sense.  If you thought you were a prophet and that God was speaking through you and then all of a sudden another prophet calls you a liar – a slap is the response you might have.  It’s almost like what the other prophet just did to you – or at least what it felt like.

His question, on the other hand, makes no sense to me.  What would it matter which way it went, and why would Zedekiah want to know?
