These animals were not anciently, as now, used only by the lower classes, but were in general use among the noble and chief personages of the East, and it was not unusual for even the husband to walk by the side of his wife while thus riding; the driver, as was the custom, following. The Shunammite, when she went to the prophet, did not desire so much attendance; but only requested her husband to send her an ass and its driver. - Drive. * 1Sa 25:19 - slack not thy riding for me.

The word {pakk"th,} from {peka,} in Chaldee, to burst, and in Syriac, to crack, thunder, is generally supposed to be the fruits of the coloquintida, or colocynth; whose leaves are large, placed alternately, very much like those of the vine, whence it might be called a wild vine: the flowers are white, and the fruit of the gourd kind, of the size of a large apple, and when ripe, of a yellow color, and a pleasant and inviting appearance. It ranks among vegetable poisons, as all intense bitters do; but, judiciously employed, it is of considerable use in medicine. It is said that the fruit, when ripe, is so full of wind that it bursts, and throws its liquor and seeds to a great distance: and if touched, before it breaks of itself, it flies open with an explosion, and discharges its foetid contents in the face of him who touched it. VERSE 40 - O thou. * :9; 1:9,11,13 De 33:1 1Ki 17:18 - death. * Ex 10:17; 15:23 Mr 16:18 VERSE 41 - he cast. * 2Ki 2:21; 5:10; 6:6 Ex 15:25 Joh 9:6 1Co 1:25 - there. * Ac 28:5 - harm. Heb. evil thing. VERSE 42 - Baal-shalisha. * 1Sa 9:4,7 - bread. * :38 Ex 23:16 De 12:6; 26:2-10 1Sa 9:7 2Ch 11:13,14 Pr 3:9,10 * 1Co 9:11 Ga 6:6 - of barley. * 2Ki 7:1,16-18 De 8:8; 32:14 Joh 6:9,13 - the husk thereof. or, his scrip, or garment. Note: Parched corn, or corn to be parched; full ears before they are ripe, parched on the fire: a very frequent food in the East. The loaves were probably extremely small, as their loaves of bread still are in eastern countries. But small as this may appear, it would be a considerable present in the time of famine; though very inadequate to the number of persons. Baal-shalisha, of which the person who made this seasonable present was an inhabitant, was situated, according to Eusebius and Jerome, fifteen miles north of Diospolis, or Lydda. VERSE 43 - his servitor. See on ver. * :12 - What. * Mt 14:16,17; 15:33,34 Mr 6:37-39; 8:4 Lu 9:13 Joh 6:9 - They shall eat. * Mt 14:20; 15:37; 16:8-10 Mr 6:42,43; 8:20 Lu 9:17 Joh 6:11-13 VERSE 44 * :44 GOTO NEXT CHAPTER - TREASURY OF SCRIPTURE KNOWLEDGE INDEX
