Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Kings 4:24

_ _ Drive, and go forward — It is usual for women to ride on asses, accompanied by a servant, who walks behind and drives the beast with his stick, goading the animal at the speed required by his mistress. The Shunammite had to ride a journey of five or six hours to the top of Carmel.

Matthew Henry's Commentary
