SEV Biblia, Chapter 9:1 Â¶ Entonces el profeta Eliseo llamó a uno de los hijos de los profetas, y le dijo: Ciñe tus lomos, y toma esta botija de aceite en tu mano, y ve a Ramot de Galaad.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Kings 9:1 Verse 1. One of the children of the prophets] The Jews say that this was Jonah the prophet, the son of Amittai.
Gird up thy loins] What thou hast to do requires the utmost despatch.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 1. And Elisha the prophet called one of the children of the prophets , etc.] Who the Jews generally say was Jonah the son of Amittai: and said, gird up thy loins ; his loose and long garments about his loins, for quicker dispatch in travelling: and take this box of oil in thine hand ; for an use after directed to: and go to Ramothgilead ; where Joram had left his army with his captains, to keep the city from the Syrians.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 1-10 - In these and the like events, we must acknowledge the secret working of God, disposing men to fulfil his purposes respecting them. Jehu wa anointed king over Israel, by the Lord's special choice. The Lord stil had a remnant of his people, and would yet preserve his worship amon them. Of this Jehu was reminded. He was commanded to destroy the hous of Ahab, and, as far as he acted in obedience to God, and upon righ principles, he needed not to regard reproach or opposition. The murde of God's prophets is strongly noticed. Jezebel persisted in idolatr and enmity to Jehovah and his servants, and her iniquity was now full.
