SEV Biblia, Chapter 6:14 Entonces envió el rey allá gente de a caballo, y carros, y un grande ejército, los cuales vinieron de noche, y cercaron la ciudad.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Kings 6:14 Verse 14. He sent thither horses] It is strange he did not think that he who could penetrate his secrets with respect to the Israelitish army, could inform himself of all his machinations against his own life.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 14. Therefore sent he thither horses and chariots, and a great host , etc.] To terrify the inhabitants from attempting to defend the prophet, but deliver him up at once: and they came by night ; that they might come upon them unawares, and their design not be discovered, so as to have timely help from Samaria, which was not far off: and compassed the city about ; that the prophet might not make his escape out of it.
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.
