SEV Biblia, Chapter 6:24 Â¶ Después de esto aconteció, que Ben-adad rey de Siria juntó todo su ejército, y subió, y puso cerco a Samaria.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 24. And it came to pass after this, that Benhadad king of Syria gathered all his host , etc.] Still retaining a grudge and enmity against Israel, and not at all softened by the kind and humane treatment his forces had met with, when in the hands of Israel; and finding he could do nothing in a secret way, by ambush, mustered all his forces together, to try what he could by open war: and went up, and besieged Samaria ; Jehoram king of Israel not being able to stop him till he came to his capital, which he laid close siege to.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 24-33 - Learn to value plenty, and to be thankful for it; see how contemptibl money is, when in time of famine it is so freely parted with for an thing that is eatable! The language of Jehoram to the woman may be the language of despair. See the word of God fulfilled; among the threatenings of God's judgments upon Israel for their sins, this wa one, that they should eat the flesh of their own children, De 28:53-57 The truth and the awful justice of God were displayed in this horribl transaction. Alas! what miseries sin has brought upon the world! But the foolishness of man perverts his way, and then his heart fret against the Lord. The king swears the death of Elisha. Wicked men wil blame any one as the cause of their troubles, rather than themselves and will not leave their sins. If rending the clothes, without a broke and contrite heart, would avail, if wearing sackcloth, without being renewed in the spirit of their mind, would serve, they would not stan out against the Lord. May the whole word of God increase in us reveren fear and holy hope, that we may be stedfast and immovable, alway abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that our labour is not in vain in the Lord __________________________________________________________________
