Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Kings 5:7

_ _ when the king of Israel had read the letter, that he rent his clothes — According to an ancient practice among the Eastern people, the main object only was stated in the letter that was carried by the party concerned, while other circumstances were left to be explained at the interview. This explains Jehoram’s burst of emotion — not horror at supposed blasphemy, but alarm and suspicion that this was merely made an occasion for a quarrel. Such a prince as he was would not readily think of Elisha, or, perhaps, have heard of his miraculous deeds.
