SEV Biblia, Chapter 3:12 Y Josafat dijo: Este tendrá palabra del SEÑOR. Y descendieron a él el rey de Israel, y Josafat, y el rey de Idumea.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Kings 3:12 Verse 12. The word of the Lord is with him.] He has the gift of prophecy.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 12. And Jehoshaphat said, the word of the Lord is with him , etc.] To give them an answer, which he concluded from his being a servant and disciple of Elijah, whom he succeeded in his office, and of whom he had, doubtless, heard; and from his following the camp, and being in it, which he easily imagined was not to fight, but to assist by his advice and counsel, and by his prophecies, as there might be occasion for them: so the king of Israel and Jehoshaphat and the king of Edom went down to him ; descended from their chariots, and went to the tent in the camp where he was; they did not send for him to come to them, but, in honour of him, went to him themselves.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 6-19 - The king of Israel laments their distress, and the danger they were in He called these kings together, yet he charges it upon Providence. Thu the foolishness of man perverteth his way, and then his heart frettet against the Lord, Pr 19:3. It was well that Jehoshaphat inquired of the Lord now, but it had been much better if he had done it before he engaged in this war. Good men sometimes neglect their duty, til necessity and affliction drive them to it. Wicked people often fare the better for the friendship and society of the godly. To try their fait and obedience, Elisha bids them make the valley full of pits to receiv water. Those who expect God's blessings, must dig pools for the rain to fill, as in the valley of Baca, and thus make even that a well, P 84:6. We need not inquire whence the water came. God is not tied to second causes. They that sincerely seek for the dew of God's grace shall have it, and by it be made more than conquerors.
