HEROD'S MISERABLE END—GROWING SUCCESS OF THE GOSPEL—BARNABAS AND SAUL RETURN TO ANTIOCH. (Acts 12:20-25)
Herod was . . . displeased with them of Tyre and Sidon—for some reason unknown; but the effect on their commercial relations made the latter glad to sue for peace.
their country was nourished by the king's country—See I Kings 5:11; Ezra 3:7; Ezekiel 27:17. Perhaps the famine (Acts 11:28) made them the more urgent for reconciliation.
