Bible Commentary for 2 Kings 8:7

Wesley's Notes for 2 Kings 8:7


8:8 Enquire of the Lord, &c - In his health he bowed down in the house of Rimmon; but now he tends to enquire of the God of Israel. Among other instances of the change of mens minds by affliction or sickness, this is one; that it often gives them other thoughts of God's ministers, and teacheth them to value those whom they before hated and despised.

8:9 Thy son - He who before persecuted him as an enemy, now in his extremity honours him like a father.
