Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Kings 9:4-6

_ _ So the young man ... went to Ramoth-gilead — His ready undertaking of this delicate and hazardous mission was an eminent proof of his piety and obedience. The act of anointing being done through a commissioned prophet, was a divine intimation of his investiture with the sovereign power. But it was sometimes done long prior to the actual possession of the throne (1 Samuel 16:13); and, in like manner, the commission had, in this instance, been given also a long time before to Elijah [1 Kings 19:16], who, for good reasons, left it in charge to Elisha; and he awaited God’s time and command for executing it [Poole].

the young man:
Hannaâr hannavee, not as some would render, "the servant of the prophet," but, as correctly rendered by our venerable translators, "the young man, the prophet;" for הנער, hannaâr, "the young man," is not in regimine, but in appositione, with הנביא, hannavee, "the prophet."
2 Kings 9:4 So the young man, [even] the young man the prophet, went to Ramothgilead.
