(24-7:20) THE SIEGE OF SAMARIA AND THE FAMINE. THE DELIVERANCE, AS FORETOLD BY ELISHA.

(24) After this.--Afterwards. The term plainly implies chronological sequence.

Ben-hadad.--Ben-hadad II., who had besieged Samaria in the reign of Ahab (1Kings 20:1). He is mentioned on the monuments of Shalmaneser II., now in the British Museum, under the designation of Rammanu-hidri, or idri. Now, as the Assyrians identified their god Ramm-nu (Rimmon) with the Syrian deity, Adad, Addu, or Dadi, this title might be equivalent to Adad-idri, or Addu-idri. Further, in three contract tablets in the reign of Nabonidus, Mr. Pinches has read the names Bin-Addu-natanu and Bin-Addu-amara--i.e., "Bin-Addu gave," and "Bin-Ad?u commanded." Bin (or, Tur)-Addu, "son of Addu," is clearly the name of a god, like abal Esarra, "son of Esarra," in the name Tiglath Pileser; and is, in fact, the Assyrian equivalent of Ben-hadad. The Syrian king's full name, therefore, would seem to have been Ben-hadad-idri, "The son of Hadad is my help" (Syriac adar, "to help"). (Comp. the name Hadad-ezer.) The Assyrians omitted the first element, the Hebrews the last.

Verse 24. - 2 Kings 7:20. - The siege of Samaria by Benhadad. Verse 24. - And it came to pass after this - probably some considerable time after, when the memory of Jehoram's kind act had passed away - that Benhadad king of Syria gathered all his host. A contrast is intended between the inroads of small bodies of plunderers and the invasion of the territory by the monarch himself at the head of his entire force. And went up. However Samaria was approached from Syria, there must always have been a final ascent, either from the Jordan valley or from the Plain of Esdraelon. And besieged Samaria. Josephus says that Jehoram was afraid to meet Benhadad in the open field, since his forces were no match for those of the Syrian king, and therefore at once shut himself up within his capital, without risking a battle. The walls of Samaria were very strong.
