SEV Biblia, Chapter 9:20 El atalaya volvió a decir: También éste llegó a ellos y no vuelve; mas el marchar del que viene es como el marchar de Jehú hijo de Nimsi, porque viene impetuosamente.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Kings 9:20 Verse 20. He driveth furiously] Jehu was a bold, daring, prompt, and precipitate general. In his various military operations he had established his character; and now it was almost proverbial.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 20. And the watchman told, saying, he came even unto them, and cometh not again , etc.] Was detained, as the other was: and the driving is like the driving of Jehu the son of Nimshi ; for, coming nearer, the watchman could discern the manner of his driving: for he driveth furiously ; in great haste, making much speed, being a man of a very warm and active spirit; and now being eager to come up with Joram, and seize him unprepared, and ascend the throne; the Targum is the reverse, ``for he driveth quietly or slowly,” being desirous of drawing Joram out of the city, and get him into his hands, and slay him, that he might not have the trouble of besieging the place, which was able to hold out some time against him; and besides, he remembered the prophecy of Elisha, that Naboth’s blood would be requited in the field of Jezreel, ( 2 Kings 9:26), and therefore was desirous of drawing him out of the city, in order to slay him there.
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.
