SEV Biblia, Chapter 6:17 Y orķ Eliseo, y dijo: Te ruego, oh SEŅOR, que abras sus ojos para que vea. Entonces el SEŅOR abriķ los ojos del joven, y mirķ; y he aquí que el monte estaba lleno de gente de a caballo, y de carros de fuego alrededor de Eliseo.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Kings 6:17 Verse 17. Lord-open his eyes] Where is heaven? Is it not above, beneath, around us? And were our eyes open as were those of the prophet's servant, we should see the heavenly host in all directions. The horses and chariots of fire were there, before the eyes of Elisha's servant were opened.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 17. And Elisha prayed, and said, Lord, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see , etc.] Not the eyes of his body, which were not shut nor blinded, but the eyes of his mind; or, in other words, grant him a vision, represented in so strong a light, as to remove his fears: and the Lord opened the eyes of the young man, and he saw ; he had a vision of angels: and, behold, the mountain ; on which the city was built, or one near it: was full of horses and chariots of fire ; angels in this form, as in ( Kings 2:11), and these were round about Elisha ; being round about the city where he was; or rather so in the vision it was represented to the young man, he saw his master surrounded with horses and chariots of fire, in the utmost safety.
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.
