NET © Notes

tn Heb “the Lord was making holes in the sky, could this thing be?” See the note at 7:2.

tn Heb “he”; the referent (Elisha) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

tn Heb “you will not eat from there.”

tn In the Hebrew text vv. 18-19a are one lengthy sentence, “When the man of God spoke to the king…, the officer replied to the man of God, ‘Look…so soon?’” The translation divides this sentence up for stylistic reasons.
