2 Kings 2:16-18

_ _ fifty strong men, let them go, we pray thee, and seek thy master — Though the young prophets from Jericho had seen Elijah’s miraculous passage of the Jordan, they had not witnessed the ascension. They imagined that he might have been cast by the whirlwind on some mountain or valley; or, if he had actually been admitted into heaven, they expected that his body would still be remaining somewhere on earth. In compliance with their importunity, he gave them permission, but told them what the result would be.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 2 Kings 2:13-18.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

2 Kings 2:17

Was ashamed — That is, to deny them any longer, lest they should think his denial proceeded from a neglect of his master, or a contempt of them.
