Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Kings 6:2

_ _ Let us go, we pray thee, unto Jordan — whose wooded banks would furnish plenty of timber.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 2 Kings 6:1-7.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

2 Kings 6:2

Jordan — To the woods near Jordan. A beam — A piece of timber for the building. Hence it may be gathered, that although the sons of the prophets principally devoted themselves to religious exercises, yet they sometimes employed themselves about manual arts.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Let us go, we pray thee, unto Jordan, and take thence every man a (a) beam, and let us make us a place there, where we may dwell. And he answered, Go ye.

(a) Or a piece of wood fit to build with.
