    1 Elisha sends a young prophet with instructions to anoint Jehu at Ramoth-gilead. 4 The prophet having done his message, flees. 11 Jehu, being made king by the soldiers, kills Joram in the field of Naboth. 27 Ahaziah is slain at Gur, and buried at Jerusalem. 30 Proud Jezebel is thrown down out of a window, and eaten by dogs.

As the upper garments of the Orientals were long and flowing, it was indispensably necessary to tuck up the skirts with a girdle about their loins, in order to use any expedition in their work or on a journey. * 2Ki 4:29 1Ki 18:46 Jer 1:17 Lu 12:35-37 1Pe 1:13 - box of oil. * 1Sa 10:1; 16:1 1Ki 1:39 - Ramoth-gilead. * 2Ki 8:28,29 De 4:1,3 1Ki 22:4,20 VERSE 2 - Jehu.

See on ver. * :3 1Ki 1:34; 19:16 2Ch 22:7 Ps 2:6 *marg: * Ps 75:6 Isa 45:1 Da 2:21; 4:17,32; 5:20,21 - over the people. * 1Ki 3:8; 10:9; 14:7; 16:2 VERSE 7 - I may avenge. * De 32:35,43 Ps 94:1-7 Mt 23:35 Lu 18:7,8 Ro 12:19; 13:4 * Heb 10:30 Re 6:9,10; 18:20; 19:2 - at the hand. * :32-37 1Ki 18:4; 21:15,21,25 VERSE 8 - I will cut off.

It is probable there was something peculiar in the young prophet's manner and address, similar to the vehement actions sometimes used by the prophets when under the Divine influence, which caused the bystanders to use this contemptuous language. * Isa 59:15 *marg: * Jer 29:26 Ho 9:7 Mr 3:21 Joh 10:20 Ac 17:18; 26:24 1Co 4:10 * 2Co 5:13 VERSE 12 - Thus and thus.

The spreading of garments in the street, before persons to whom it was intended to shew particular honor, was an ancient and very general custom; the garments in these cases being used for carpets. In the Agamemnon of 'schylus, the hypocritical Clytemnestra commands the maids to spread carpets before her returning husband, that on his descending from his chariot he may place his foot on "a purple-covered path." We also find this custom among the Romans. Plutarch relates, that when Cato of Utica left the Macedonian army, where he had become legionary tribune, the soldiers spread their clothes in the way. * Mt 21:7,8 Mr 11:7,8 - on the top. The ancient fortified cities were generally strengthened with a citadel, (Jud 9:46, 51,) commonly built on an eminence, to which they ascended by a flight of stairs, (Ne 3:15.) It is extremely probable, therefore, that Ramoth-gilead, being a frontier town of Israel and Syria, had a tower of this nature; and that Jehu was proclaimed king on the top of the stairs by which they ascended the hill on which the tower stood, i.e., in the area before the door of the tower, and consequently the most public place in the city. - blew with trumpets. * 2Sa 15:10 1Ki 1:34,39 Ps 47:5-7; 98:6 - is king.

This practice obtains among the Moors at Constantia, a town of Barbary; and is also of frequent occurrence in Persia. - and he trode. * :26; 7:20 Isa 25:10 La 1:15 Mic 7:10 Mal 4:3 Mt 5:13 Heb 10:29 VERSE 34 - he did eat. * 1Ki 18:41 Es 3:15 Am 6:4 - this cursed woman. * 1Ki 21:25 Pr 10:7 Isa 65:15 Mt 25:41 - she is a king's. * 1Ki 16:31 VERSE 35 - but they found. * Job 31:3 Ec 6:3 Isa 14:18-20 Jer 22:19; 36:30 Ac 12:23 VERSE 36 - This is.
