2 Kings 13:14 Parallel
Commentary
Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

Now Elisha was fallen sick - This is supposed to have taken place in the tenth year of Joash; and if so, Elisha must have prophesied about sixty-five years.

O my father, my father - "What shall I do now thou art dying? thou art the only defense of Israel." He accosts him with the same words which himself spoke to Elijah when he was translated; see 2 Kings 2:12 (note), and the note there.
