    King James Bible - 2 Kings 9:17

    And there stood a watchman on the tower in Jezreel, and he spied the company of Jehu as he came, and said, I see a company. And Joram said, Take an horseman, and send to meet them, and let him say, Is it peace?

    World English Bible

    Now the watchman was
    standing on the tower in Jezreel, and he spied the company of Jehu as he came, and said, "I see a company." Joram said, "Take a horseman, and send to meet them, and let him say, 'Is it peace?'"

    Douay-Rheims - 2 Kings 9:17

    The watchmen therefore, that stood upon the
    tower of Jezrahel, saw the troop of Jehu coming, and said: I see a troop. And Joram said: Take a chariot, and send to meet them, and let him that goeth say: Is all well?

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 9:17

    Y el atalaya que estaba en la torre de Jezreel, vio la cuadrilla de Jeh˙, que venía, y dijo: Yo veo una cuadrilla. Y Joram dijo: Toma uno de a caballo, y envía a reconocerlos, y que les diga: ┬┐Hay paz?

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Kings 9:17

    Verse 17. A watchman on the
    tower] These watchmen, fixed on elevated places and generally within hearing of each other, served as a kind of telegraphs, to communicate intelligence through the whole country. But, in some cases, it appears that the intelligence was conveyed by a horseman to the next stage, as in the case before us. At this time, when the armies were at Ramoth-gilead, they were, no doubt, doubly watchful to observe the state of the country, and to notice every movement. See on 2 Sam. xiii. 34.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 17. And there stood a watchman on the
    tower of Jezreel , etc.] Who could see afar off when an enemy was coming, and his business was to give notice of it; and especially he was now on his watch tower, because the king was there, and this was necessary for his safety: and he spied the company of Jehu as he came, and said, I see a company ; a troop of soldiers, though he did not know who they were, and to whom they belonged, whether they were Syrians or Israelites; which was reported to the king: and Joram said, take an horseman, and send to meet them, and let him say, is it peace ? he might fear some ill had befallen his army at Ramothgilead, and the Syrians had got the advantage of them; or they had made an irruption into his country, and were coming to attack him at Jezreel; or there was an insurrection among his own people.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 16-29 -
    Jehu was a man of eager spirit. The wisdom of God is seen in the choic of those employed in his work. But it is not for any man's reputatio to be known by his fury. He that has rule over his own spirit, is better than the mighty. Joram met Jehu in the portion of Naboth. The circumstances of events are sometimes ordered by Divine Providence to make the punishment answer to the sin, as face answers to face in glass. The way of sin can never be the way of peace, Isa 57:21. What peace can sinners have with God? No peace so long as sin is persiste in; but when it is repented of and forsaken, there is peace. Joram die as a criminal, under the sentence of the law. Ahaziah was joined with the house of Ahab. He was one of them; he had made himself so by sin It is dangerous to join evil-doers; we shall be entangled in guilt an misery by it.
