SEV Biblia, Chapter 4:27 Y luego que llegó al varón de Dios en el monte, se asió de sus pies. Y se acercó Giezi para quitarla; mas el varón de Dios le dijo: Déjala, porque su alma está en amargura, y el SEÑOR me ha encubierto el motivo , y no me lo ha revelado.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Kings 4:27 Verse 27. The Lord hath hid it from me, and hath not told me.] In reference to this point he had not now the discernment of spirits. This, and the gift of prophecy, were influences which God gave and suspended as his infinite wisdom saw good.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 27. And when she came to the man of God to the hill , etc.] To the top of it: she caught him by the feet ; in reverence to him, and as a supplicant, she prostrated herself at his feet, and, out of affection to him, caught hold on them, and held them fast, and determined not to leave him until he had promised to go with her, (see Matthew 28:9). It was usual with the Jews to lay hold on and kiss the feet or knees of those to whom they did homage, or made supplication, (see Matthew 28:9 Luke 7:38). (see Gill on “ Luke 7:38”), and so with the Greeks, as may be observed in various passages in Homer and others: but Gehazi came near to thrust her away ; as being troublesome and disagreeable to his master, and not for her honour and credit: and the man of God said, let her alone, for her soul is vexed within her ; or “is bitter” f50 , full of trouble and distress, and knows not what to do, nor very well what she does: and the Lord hath hid it from me, and hath not told me : what is the cause of this her trouble; for prophets did not know things of themselves, nor had they the vision of prophecy at their will and pleasure, but according to the will of God.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 18-37 - Here is the sudden death of the child. All the mother's tendernes cannot keep alive a child of promise, a child of prayer, one given in love. But how admirably does the prudent, pious mother, guard her lip under this sudden affliction! Not one peevish word escapes from her Such confidence had she of God's goodness, that she was ready to believe that he would restore what he had now taken away. O woman great is thy faith! He that wrought it, would not disappoint it. The sorrowful mother begged leave of her husband to go to the prophet a once. She had not thought it enough to have Elisha's help sometimes in her own family, but, though a woman of rank, attended on publi worship. It well becomes the men of God, to inquire about the welfar of their friends and their families. The answer was, It is well. All well, and yet the child dead in the house! Yes! All is well that God does; all is well with them that are gone, if they are gone to heaven and all well with us that stay behind, if, by the affliction, we ar furthered in our way thither. When any creature-comfort is taken from us, it is well if we can say, through grace, that we did not set ou hearts too much upon it; for if we did, we have reason to fear it wa given in anger, and taken away in wrath. Elisha cried unto God in faith; and the beloved son was restored alive to his mother. Those wh would convey spiritual life to dead souls, must feel deeply for their case, and labour fervently in prayer for them. Though the ministe cannot give Divine life to his fellow-sinners, he must use every means with as much earnestness as if he could do so.
