Geneva Bible Translation Notes

2 Kings 20:7

And Isaiah said, Take a (f) lump of figs. And they took and laid [it] on the boil, and he recovered.

(f) He declares that though God can heal without other medicines, he will not have these inferior means contemned.

Cross-Reference Topical ResearchStrong's Concordance
Take a lump:

2 Kings 2:20-22 And he said, Bring me a new cruse, and put salt therein. And they brought [it] to him. ... So the waters were healed unto this day, according to the saying of Elisha which he spake.
2 Kings 4:41 But he said, Then bring meal. And he cast [it] into the pot; and he said, Pour out for the people, that they may eat. And there was no harm in the pot.
Isaiah 38:21 For Isaiah had said, Let them take a lump of figs, and lay [it] for a plaister upon the boil, and he shall recover.

the boil:
The word shechin, from the Arabic sachana, to be hot, signifies an inflammatory tumour, or burning boil; and some think that Hezekiah's malady was a pleurisy; others, that it was the plague; and others, the elephantiasis, a species of leprosy, as one of the Hexapla versions renders in
Job 2:7 So went Satan forth from the presence of the LORD, and smote Job with sore boils from the sole of his foot unto his crown.
. A poultice of figs might be very proper to maturate a boil, or dismiss any obstinate inflammatory swelling; but we need not discuss its propriety in this case, because it was as much the means which God chose to bless for his recovery, as the clay which Christ moistened to anoint the eyes of the blind man; for in both cases, without Divine interposition the cure could not have been effected.
