EXPOSITORY (ENGLISH BIBLE)Call her.—The Shunammite is now summoned into the presence of the prophet himself.
She stood.—Or, took her stand. Modesty, or reverence for Elisha, prevented her from going farther.
I dwell among mine own people - The woman declines Elisha's offer. She has no wrong to complain of, no quarrel with any neighbor, in respect of which she might need the help of one in power. She "dwells among her own people" - her friends, and dependents, with whom she lives peaceably.
and when he had called her, she stood in the door; of his chamber: See Gill on 2 Kings 4:12.And he said, Call her. And when he had called her, she stood in the door.
EXEGETICAL (ORIGINAL LANGUAGES)15. And he said. Call her] It would seem from these words that the woman had gone away at once after saying she had no wants which needed a petition to the king or the captain of the host.
she stood in the door] Her reverence for Elisha kept her at the threshold.Verse 15. - And he said, Call her. And when he had called her, she stood in the door; rather, the doorway. The same word in Hebrew stands both for "doorway" and for "door." It would seem that the woman came at once on being called, but, out of modesty and respect, would not advance beyond the entrance of the apartment.
