Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Kings 7:6-7

_ _ the Lord had made the host of the Syrians to hear a noise of chariots — This illusion of the sense of hearing, whereby the besiegers imagined the tramp of two armies from opposite quarters, was a great miracle which God wrought directly for the deliverance of His people.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 2 Kings 7:3-11.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

2 Kings 7:6

Hittites — Under which name (as elsewhere under the name of the Amorites) he seems to understand all the people of Canaan. For though the greatest number of that people were destroyed, yet very many of them were spared, and many of them upon Joshua's coming, fled away, some to remote parts, others to the lands bordering upon Canaan, where they seated themselves, and grew numerous and powerful. Kings — Either the king of Egypt, the plural number being put for the singular, or, the princes and governors of the several provinces in Egypt.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

2 Kings 7:6

For the Lord had made the host of the Syrians to hear a (f) noise of chariots, and a noise of horses, [even] the noise of a great host: and they said one to another, Lo, the king of Israel hath hired against us the kings of the Hittites, and the kings of the Egyptians, to come upon us.

(f) Thus God needs no great preparation to destroy the wicked. Though they are many he can scatter them with a small noise, or shaking of a leaf.
