Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Kings 20:5

_ _ Thus saith ... the God of David thy father — An immediate answer was given to his prayer, containing an assurance that the Lord was mindful of His promise to David and would accomplish it in Hezekiah’s experience, both by the prolongation of his life, and his deliverance from the Assyrians.

_ _ on the third day — The perfect recovery from a dangerous sickness, within so short a time, shows the miraculous character of the cure (see his thanksgiving song, Isaiah 38:9). The disease cannot be ascertained; but the text gives no hint that the plague was raging then in Jerusalem; and although Arab physicians apply a cataplasm of figs to plague-boils, they also do so in other cases, as figs are considered useful in ripening and soothing inflammatory ulcers.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 2 Kings 20:1-11.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

2 Kings 20:5

God of, &c. — I am mindful of my promise made to David and his house, and will make it good in thy person. Shalt go — To give me solemn praise for this mercy.
