    SEV Biblia, Chapter 6:33

    Aun estaba él hablando con ellos, y he aquí el mensajero que descendía a él; y dijo: Ciertamente este mal del SEÑOR viene. ¿Para qué tengo de esperar más al SEÑOR?

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Kings 6:33

    Verse 33. Behold, this
    evil is of the Lord] It is difficult to know whether it be the prophet, the messenger, or the king, that says these words. It might be the answer of the prophet from within to the messenger who was without, and who sought for admission, and gave his reason; to whom Elisha might have replied: "I am not the cause of these calamities; they are from the Lord; I have been praying for their removal; but why should I pray to the Lord any longer, for the time of your deliverance is at hand?" And then Elisha said,-see the following chapter, where the removal of the calamity is foretold in the most explicit manner; and indeed the chapter is unhappily divided from this. The seventh chapter should have begun with ver. 24 of this chapter, as, by the present division, the story is unnaturally interrupted.

    How natural is it for men to lay the cause of their suffering on any thing or person but themselves! Ahab's iniquity was sufficient to have brought down God's displeasure on a whole nation; and yet he takes no blame to himself, but lays all on the prophet, who was the only salt that preserved the whole nation from corruption. How few take their sins to themselves! and till they do this, they cannot be true penitents; nor can they expect God's wrath to be averted till they feel themselves the chief of sinners.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 33. And while he yet talked with them , etc.] Elisha with the elders: behold, the messenger came down unto him ; sent by the king: and he said ; either the messenger in the king’s name, or rather the king, who was at his heels, and came to the door before the messenger was let in, who was detained; and therefore it is most probable the king went in first; for that was the intention of Elisha in holding the messenger, not to save his own life, but that the king, who was following, might hear what he had to say; and whom he advised to wait for the Lord, and his appearance, for deliverance: in answer to which he said, behold, this evil is of the Lord, what should I wait for the Lord any longer ? this calamity is from him, and he is determined upon the ruin of my people, and there is no hope; this he said as despairing, and so resolving to hold out the siege no longer.

    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 __________________________________________________________________
