    SEV Biblia, Chapter 7:1

    ¶ Dijo entonces Eliseo: Oíd palabra del SEÑOR: Así dijo el SEÑOR: Mañana a estas horas valdrá el seah de flor de harina un siclo, y dos seah de cebada un siclo, a la puerta de Samaria.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Kings 7:1

    Verse 1. To-morrow about this
    time] This was in reply to the desponding language of the king, and to vindicate himself from the charge of being author of this calamity. See the end of the preceding chapter.

    A measure of fine flour-for a shekel] A seah of fine flour: the seah was about two gallons and a half; the shekel, two shillings and four-pence at the lowest computation. A wide difference between this and the price of the ass's head mentioned above.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 1. Then Elisha said, hear the word of the Lord , etc.] This he said to the king and those that were with him: thus saith the Lord, tomorrow, about this time ; which very probably was the forenoon: shall a measure of fine flour [be sold] for a shekel ; “a seah”, the measure here spoken of, or “saturn”, according to some f91 , was a gallon and an half; but Bishop Cumberland makes it two wine gallons and an half; and a shekel, according to his accurate computation, was two shillings and four pence farthing, and near the eighth part of one f93 : and two measures of barley for a shekel, in the gate of Samaria ; where the market was kept; the same sort of measure and of money is here used as before; and we learn from hence that a measure of wheat was equal to two of barley.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1, 2 - Man's extremity is
    God's opportunity of making his own power to be glorious: his time to appear for his people is when their strength is gone. Unbelief is a sin by which men greatly dishonour and displeas God, and deprive themselves of the favours he designed for them. Suc will be the portion of those that believe not the promise of eterna life; they shall see it at a distance, but shall never taste of it. But no temporal deliverances and mercies will in the end profit sinners unless they are led to repentance by the goodness of God.
