Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Kings 10:5

_ _ he that was over the house — the governor or chamberlain of the palace.

_ _ the bringers-up of the children — Anciently, and still also in many Eastern countries, the principal grandees were charged with the support and education of the royal princes. This involved a heavy expense which they were forced to bear, but for which they endeavored to find some compensation in the advantages of their connection with the court.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 2 Kings 10:1-14.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

2 Kings 10:5

The house — The chief governor of the kings palace. City — The chief magistrate or military governor.
