      1  Elisha prophesies incredible plenty in Samaria.
     3  Four lepers, venturing on the host of the Syrians, bring
        tidings of their flight.
    12  The king, finding by spies the news to be true, spoils the
        tents of the Syrians.
    17  The lord who would not believe the prophecy of plenty,
        having the charge of the gate, is trodden to death in the
        press.
    
    
    VERSE 1
    - Elisha said.  See on ch.
       * 2Ki 6:33; 20:16 1Ki 22:19 Isa 1:10 Eze 37:4
    - To-morrow.
       * :18,19 Ex 8:23; 9:5,6; 14:13; 16:12 Jos 3:5 1Sa 11:9 Ps 46:5
    - a measure of fine flour.
      A {seah} of flour:  the {seah} was about two gallons and a
      half; the shekel 2s. 4d. at the lowest computation:  a wide
      difference between this and the price of the ass's head.
    
       * 2Ki 6:25 Re 6:6
    - of barley.
       * 2Ki 4:42 Joh 6:9
    - in the gate of Samaria.
      From this it appears that the gates were not only used as
      courts of judicature, but as market-places.  So Mr. Morier
      observes:  "In our rides we usually went out of the town at
      the {Derwazeh Shah Abdul Azeem,} or the gate leading to the
      village of Shah Abdul Azeem, where a market was held every
      morning, particularly of horses, mules, asses, and camels.  At
      about sun-rise, the owners of the animals assemble and exhibit
      them for sale.  But besides, here were sellers of all sorts of
      goods, in temporary shops and tents:  and this, perhaps, will
      explain the custom alluded to in 2 Ki 18 7:18."

    - They know that we be hungry.
      This was a very natural conclusion; and, in history of the
      revolt of Ali Bey, we have an account of a stratagem very
      similar to that supposed to have been practised by the
      Syrians.  The pasha of Damascus having approached the Sea of
      Tiberias, found sheik Daher encamped there; but the sheik,
      deferring the engagement till the next morning, during the
      night divided his army into three parts, and left the camp
      with great fires blazing, all sorts of provisions, and a large
      quantity of spiritous liquors.  In the middle of the night,
      the pasha, thinking to surprise the sheik, marched in silence
      to the camp, which, to his astonishment, he found entirely
      abandoned; and imagining the sheik had fled with so much
      precipitation that he could not carry off his baggage and
      stores, he stopped in the camp to refresh his soldiers.  They
      soon fell to plunder, and drank so freely of the spirits,
      that, overcome with its fumes, they sunk into a deep lethargy.
      At that time, two sheiks came silently to the camp, and being
      rejoined by Daher, rushed upon the sleeping foe, 8,000 of whom
      were slain; the pasha and a few soldiers barely escaping with
      their lives.
    
       * 2Ki 6:25-29
