(14) And there was no day like that before it or after it.--These words are meaningless, unless the writer intended to convey the idea that there was really a great miracle. We may compare the prophecy in Isaiah 30:26, "Moreover, the light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun shall be sevenfold, as the light of seven days, in the day when the Lord bindeth up the breach of His people, and healeth the stroke of their wound."

Verse 14. - There was no day like that before it or after it. Cf. for this expression 2 Kings 18:5; 2 Kings 23:22, 25.
