Bible Commentary for 2 Kings 5:14

Wesley's Notes for 2 Kings 5:14


5:12 Are not, &c. - Is there not as great a virtue in them to this purpose? But he should have considered, that the cure was not to be wrought by the water, but by the power of God.

5:13 My father - Or, our father. So they call him, to shew their reverence and affection to him.

5:16 He refused - Not that he thought it unlawful to receive presents, which he did receive from others, but because of the special circumstances of the case; this being much for the honour of God that the Syrians should see the generous piety, and kindness of his ministers and servants, and how much they despised all that worldly wealth and glory, which the prophets of the Gentiles so greedily sought after.
