(18) It fell on a day.--See Note on 2Kings 4:8.

Verse 18. - And when the child was grown - not grown up, for he was still a "child" (Ver. 30, 31, 35, etc.), but grown to be a boy, perhaps four or five years old - it fell on a day, that he went out to his father to the reapers. The corn-fields about Shunem attract the admiration of travelers. The husband of the Shunammite, the owner of several, was in one of them, superintending the cutting of his corn by the reapers; and the boy joined him there, as he had probably often done before. Country children delight in watching the various operations of the farmstead.
