Treasury of Scripture

Then said Saul to his servant, Well said; come, let us go. So they went to the city where the man of God was.

Well said.

2 Kings 5:13,14
And his servants came near, and spake unto him, and said, My father, if the prophet had bid thee do some great thing, wouldest thou not have done it? how much rather then, when he saith to thee, Wash, and be clean? …











(10) Unto the city.--The name of the city where Samuel and Saul first met in this strange way is not given. Still, the impression which the narrative leaves on the mind is that it was Samuel's usual residence--"Ramah." We know Samuel had built an altar to the Lord at Ramah (1Samuel 7:17); on the day of Saul's arrival there was a great sacrifice taking place on the altar of the high place of the city. Again, in this nameless city the seer had a house of his own (see 1Samuel 9:18; 1Samuel 9:25). Samuel, too, was known to Saul's servant as dwelling in this place.
