SEV Biblia, Chapter 9:11 Â¶ Después salió Jehú a los siervos de su señor, y le dijeron: Â¿Hay paz? Â¿Para qué entró a ti aquel loco? Y él les dijo: Vosotros conocéis al hombre y a sus palabras.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Kings 9:11 Verse 11. Wherefore came this mad fellow to thee?] Was it because he was a holy man of God that he was reputed by a club of irreligious officers to be a madman? In vain do such pretend that they fight for religion, and are the guardians of the public welfare and morals, if they persecute religion and scoff at holy men. But this has been an old custom with all the seed-the sons, of the serpent. As to religious soldiers, they are far to seek, and ill to find, according to the old proverb.
Ye know the man, and his communication.] Ye know that he is a madman, and that his message must be a message of folly. Jehu did not appear willing to tell them what had been done, lest it should promote jealousy and envy.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 11. Then Jehu came forth to the servants of his lord , etc.] The rest of the captains of the army, who served under Joram as he did: and one said unto him, is all well ? one of the captains, the greatest of them, as Kimchi; he inquired whether he brought any ill news, since he came and went in such haste: wherefore came this mad fellow to thee ? so profane men, especially the worshippers of Baal, as those captains might be, were wont to call the prophets of the Lord, because of their habit, their manner of living, and the gestures they sometimes used in prophesying, and especially because of the things they prophesied of; and even prophets were sometimes called so, because, in the time of their prophesying, they appeared as madmen f110 , and in a frenzy: and he said unto them, ye know the man, and his communication ; you saw by his habit of what profession he is, and you may easily guess what he talked of, as such men usually do, about religion, and one whimsical thing or another, reproving men for their sins, and telling them what they ought to do; and such like things you may well imagine he has been talking of to me; you rightly call him a mad fellow, and you may well suppose his discourse was agreeably to his character, and not worth relating and hearing; this he said, to put them off inquiring any further.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 11-15 - Those who faithfully deliver the Lord's message to sinners, have in all ages been treated as madmen. Their judgment, speech, and conduct ar contrary to those of other men; they endure much in pursuit of objects and are influenced by motives, into which the others cannot enter. But above all, the charge is brought by the worldly and ungodly of all sorts, who are mad indeed; while the principles and practice of the devoted servants of God, prove to be wise and reasonable. Some faith in the word of God, seems to have animated Jehu to this undertaking.
