Treasury of Scripture

And she called to her husband, and said, Send me, I pray you, one of the young men, and one of the asses, that I may run to the man of God, and come again.

I may run

2 Kings 4:24,26
Then she saddled an ass, and said to her servant, Drive, and go forward; slack not thy riding for me, except I bid thee…

John 11:3
Therefore his sisters sent unto him, saying, Lord, behold, he whom thou lovest is sick.

Acts 9:38
And forasmuch as Lydda was nigh to Joppa, and the disciples had heard that Peter was there, they sent unto him two men, desiring him that he would not delay to come to them.









(22) One of the young men.--To lead and drive the ass.

Asses.--She-asses.

That I may run.--Notice the striking naturalness of the language, in which she promises to be back soon.

Verse 22. - And she culled unto her husband, and said, Send me, I pray thee, one of the young men, and one of the asses. She "called to her husband" from the house, without calling him into the house, expressing her desire to visit Elisha, without stating the object of her visit, and asked for the necessary riding-animal and escort. The nearest part of Carmel was at least fourteen or fifteen miles from Shunem, so that she could not walk, That I may run - i.e., hasten - to the man of God. "Man of God" was evidently the designation by which Elisha was known in the house (vers. 16, 21, 25). And some again; i.e. return home before nightfall.
