     1  Moab rebels.
     2  Ahaziah, sending to Baal-zebub, hath his judgment by
        Elijah.
     5  Elijah twice brings fire from heaven upon them whom Ahaziah
        sent to apprehend him.
    13  He pities the third captain, and, encouraged by an angel,
        tells the king of his death.
    17  Jehoram succeeds Ahaziah.
    
    
    VERSE 1
    - Moab.
       * Nu 24:7 2Sa 8:2 1Ch 18:2 Ps 60:8
    - after the.
       * 2Ki 3:4,5; 8:20,22
    
    
    VERSE 2 
     - a lattice.
      The flat roofs of the eastern houses are generally surrounded
      by a parapet wall breast high; but instead of this, some
      terraces are guarded with balustrades only, or latticed work.
      Of the same kind, probably, was the lattice, or net, as the
      term {shevacha} seems to import, through which Ahaziah fell
      into the court.  This incident proves the necessity of the law
      for the formation of battlements for roof, (De 22:8,) which
      God graciously dictated from Sinai, which furnishes a
      beautiful example of his paternal care and goodness; for the
      terrace was a place where many offices of the family were
      performed, and business frequently transacted.

       * Jud 8:18 1Sa 28:14

     - an hairy man.
      That is, he wore a rough garment, either made of camels' hair,
      as that of John Baptist, or of a skin, dressed with the hair
      on.  Sir J. Chardin informs us, in a MS. note on this place,
      cited by Mr. Harmer, that the eastern dervishes and fakeers
      are clothed just as Elijah was, with a hairy garment, girded
      with a leathern girdle.

       * Mt 21:41; 23:34-37 Ac 5:3-10
    - let fire.
      Or, rather, as the original literally imports, and the LXX.
      render, [                    ,] fire shall come down; Elijah's
      words being simply declarative, and not imprecatory.

      Literally, "the lord of flies;" or, as the LXX. render,
      [                            ,] Baal the fly god.  See note on
      Ex 8:24.
    
    - on which thou are gone up.
      In the East there is usually at the end of each chamber a
      little gallery, raised three or four feet above the floor,
      with a balustrade in front, to which they go up by a few
      steps:  here they place their beds; an allusion to which
      situation is involved in this declaration of Elijah's, and
      frequently referred to in the Sacred Scriptures:  see Ge 49:4.
    
       * 2Ki 5:21 Ps 132:3
    
    
    VERSE 17 
     - Jehoram.
      As it is said in ch. 1 3:1, that he began his reign in the
      eighteenth of Jehoshaphat, it is supposed that Jehoshaphat
      admitted his son Jehoram to reign with him eight or nine years
      before his death.  "The second year that Jehoram was Prorex,
      and the eighteenth of Jehoshaphat."
    
    - in the second.
