Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Kings 2:14-18

_ _ smote the waters — The waving of the mantle on the river, and the miraculous division of the waters consequent upon it, was an evidence that the Lord God of Elijah was with him, and as this miracle was witnessed by the scholars of the prophets from Jericho, they forthwith recognized the pre-eminence of Elisha, as now the prophet of Israel.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 2 Kings 2:13-18.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

2 Kings 2:14

The Lord — Who at Elijah's request divided these waters, and is as able to do it again.
