John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

2 Kings 4:27

The feet — She fell at his feet and touched them, as a most humble and earnest supplicant. Withal, she intimated, what she durst not presume to express in words, that she desired him to go along with her. Let her alone — Disturb her not, for this gesture is a sign of some extraordinary grief. Hid it — Whereby he signifies, that what he knew or did, was not by any virtue inherent in himself, but from God, who revealed to him only what and when he pleased.
