    SEV Biblia, Chapter 7:3

    ¶ Y había cuatro hombres leprosos a la entrada de la puerta, los cuales dijeron el uno al otro: ¿Para qu nos estamos aquí hasta que muramos?

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Kings 7:3

    Verse 3. There were four leprous
    men] The Gemara in Sota, R. Sol. Jarchi, and others, say that these four lepers were Gehazi and his three sons.

    At the entering in of the gate] They were not permitted to mingle in civil society.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 3. And there were four leprous men at the entering in of the gate , etc.] Of the city of Samaria; lepers, according to the law, being obliged to be without the city and camp, ( Leviticus 13:46) these might have a dwelling assigned them near the gate; or they might get as near to it as they could, partly to obtain relief from the city, and partly for fear of the Syrians; these, the Jews say f96 , were Gehazi and his three sons, (see Kings 5:27) and they said one to another, why sit we here until we die ? being ready to perish with hunger.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 3-11 -
    God can, when he pleases, make the stoutest heart to tremble; and a for those who will not fear God, he can make them fear at the shakin of a leaf. Providence ordered it, that the lepers came as soon as the Syrians were fled. Their consciences told them that mischief woul befall them, if they took care of themselves only. Natural humanity and fear of punishment, are powerful checks on the selfishness of the ungodly. These feelings tend to preserve order and kindness in the world; but they who have found the unsearchable riches of Christ, wil not long delay to report the good tidings to others. From love to him not from selfish feelings, they will gladly share their earthly goo things with their brethren.
