John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

2 Kings 1:13

Besought — Expressing both reverence to his person, and a dread of God's judgments. There is nothing to be got by contending with God: if we would prevail with him, it must be by supplication. And those are wise who learn submission from the fatal consequences of obstinacy in others.

(k) Which humble myself before God and his servant.

(l) That is, spare my life, and do not let me die as the other two.
