Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Kings 7:17

_ _ 2 Kings 7:17-20. The unbelieving lord trodden to death.

_ _ the king appointed the lord on whose hand he leaned, — etc. The news spread like lightning through the city, and was followed, as was natural, by a popular rush to the Syrian camp. To keep order at the gate, the king ordered his minister to keep guard; but the impetuosity of the famishing people could not be resisted. The lord was trodden to death, and Elisha’s prophecy in all respects accomplished.

And the king appointed the lord on whose hand he leaned to have the charge of the gate: and the people (l) trode upon him in the gate, and he died, as the man of God had said, who spake when the king came down to him.

(l) As the people pressed out of the gate to run to the Syrian's tents, where they had heard meat and great spoil was left.
