    Douay-Rheims - 2 Kings 1:8

    Original Hebrew

    ויאמרו
    559 אליו 413 אישׁ 376 בעל 1167 שׂער 8181 ואזור 232 עור 5785 אזור 247 במתניו 4975 ויאמר 559 אליה 452 התשׁבי 8664 הוא׃ 1931

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:8

    Y ellos le respondieron: Un varón velloso, y ceñía sus lomos con un cinto de cuero. Entonces él dijo: Elías tisbita es.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Kings 1:8

    Verse 8. He was a hairy man] That is, he wore a
    rough garment, either made of camels' hair, as his successor John Baptist's was, or he wore a skin dressed with the hair on. Some think that the meaning is, he had very long hair and a long beard. The ancient prophets all wore rough garments, or upper coats made of the skins of beasts: They wandered about in sheep-skins and goat-skins, says the apostle, Heb. xi. 37.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 8. And they answered him, he was an hairy man , etc.] Either the
    hair of his head and beard were grown very long, having been much neglected for a great while; or he had an hairy garment on, either of goats’ hair, such as the Chinese wear f6 , whose women spin it, (see Exodus 35:26) and of which garments are made; or of camels’ hair, such as John the Baptist wore, who came in his spirit and power, and imitated him in his dress, being also, as Elijah here, girt with a girdle of leather about his loins : for more expeditious travelling, not for warmth, the climate being hot: and he said, it is Elijah the Tishbite ; for he had seen him formerly in his father’s court in this dress.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-8 - When Ahaziah rebelled against the
    Lord, Moab revolted from him. Sin weakens and impoverishes us. Man's revolt from God is often punished by the rebellion of those who owe subjection to him. Ahaziah fell throug a lattice, or railing. Wherever we go, there is but a step between u and death. A man's house is his castle, but not to secure him agains God's judgments. The whole creation, which groans under the burden of man's sin, will, at length, sink and break under the weight like thi lattice. He is never safe that has God for his enemy. Those that wil not inquire of the word of God for their comfort, shall hear it to their terror, whether they will or no.
