Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Kings 8:11

_ _ he settled his countenance stedfastly until he was ashamed — that is, Hazael. The steadfast, penetrating look of the prophet seemed to have convinced Hazael that his secret designs were known. The deep emotions of Elisha were justified by the horrible atrocities which, too common in ancient warfare, that successful usurper committed in Israel (2 Kings 10:32; 2 Kings 13:3, 2 Kings 13:4, 2 Kings 13:22).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 2 Kings 8:7-15.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes
