Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Kings 6:13 Verse 13. Behold, he is in Dothan.] This is supposed to be the same place as that mentioned in Gen. xxxvii. 17. It lay about twelve miles from Samaria.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 13. And he said, go, and spy where he is, that I may send and fetch him , etc.] But how could he expect to take him, who could give the king of Israel such intelligence of his designs against him, that he might escape his snares? and it was told him, saying, behold, he is in Dothan ; a city in the tribe of Manasseh, not far from Shechem; (see Genesis 37:17).
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 13-23 - What Elisha said to his servant is spoken to all the faithful servant of God, when without are fightings, and within are fears. Fear not with that fear which has torment and amazement; for they that are with us, to protect us, are more than they that are against us, to destro us. The eyes of his body were open, and with them he saw the danger Lord, open the eyes of our faith, that with them we may see the protecting hand. The clearer sight we have of the sovereignty and powe of Heaven, the less we shall fear the troubles of earth. Satan, the go of this world, blinds men's eyes, and so deludes them unto their ow ruin; but when God enlightens their eyes, they see themselves in the midst of their enemies, captives to Satan, and in danger of hell though, before, they thought their condition good. When Elisha had the Syrians at his mercy, he made it appear that he was influenced by Divine goodness as well as Divine power. Let us not be overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good. The Syrians saw it was to no purpos to try to assault so great and so good a man.
