SEV Biblia, Chapter 6:21 Y cuando los vio, el rey de Israel dijo a Eliseo: Â¿Los heriré, padre mío?
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Kings 6:21 Verse 21. My father, shall I smite] This was dastardly; the utmost he could have done with these men, when thus brought into his hand, was to make them prisoners of war.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 21. And the king of Israel said unto Elisha, when he saw them , etc.] The Syrian army thus in his hands: my father, shall I smite them? shall I smite them ? he speaks with great reverence and respect to the prophet, whom at other times he neglected and despised; and the repetition of his words shows the eagerness of his mind to fall upon his enemy when they where at a disadvantage.
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.
