SEV Biblia, Chapter 2:13 Â¶ Y alzando el manto de Elías que se le había caído, volvió, y se paró a la orilla del Jordán.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Kings 2:13 Verse 13. He took-the mantle] The same with which he had been called by Elijah to the prophetic office, and the same by which Elijah divided Jordan.
His having the mantle was a proof that he was invested with the authority and influence of his master.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 13. He took up also the mantle of Elijah that fell from him , etc.] Which he had now no further need of, and Elisha had, having rent his clothes in two; and this falling into his hands was a token of his succeeding him in his office, and that he should have the double portion of his spirit: and he went back, and stood by the brook of Jordan ; at the place where he and Elijah had passed over together.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 13-18 - Elijah left his mantle to Elisha; as a token of the descent of the Spirit upon him; it was more than if he had left him thousands of gol and silver. Elisha took it up, not as a sacred relic to be worshipped but as a significant garment to be worn. Now that Elijah was taken to heaven, Elisha inquired, 1. After God; when our creature-comforts ar removed, we have a God to go to, who lives for ever. 2. After the God that Elijah served, and honoured, and pleaded for. The Lord God of the holy prophets is the same yesterday, to-day, and for ever; but what will it avail us to have the mantles of those that are gone, their places, their books, if we have not their spirit, their God? Se Elisha's dividing the river; God's people need not fear at last passin through the Jordan of death as on dry ground. The sons of the prophet made a needless search for Elijah. Wise men may yield to that, for the sake of peace, and the good opinion of others, which yet their judgmen is against, as needless and fruitless. Traversing hills and valley will never bring us to Elijah, but following the example of his holy faith and zeal will, in due time.
