2 Kings Chapter 6 Summary

Thus the king of Samaria would avoid the ambush. The Syrian king did not understand how the king of Israel kept eluding him. He thought he had a “snitch” in his camp, until he was told about Elisha. The king of Syria decided to capture Elisha, to put an end to this. He surrounded his house.

A Mountain Full of Horses & Chariots

He was surrounded but Elisha did not fret, he knew God had the Syrians surrounded as well. Elisha even had God open the eyes of his worried servant. His servant saw the mountain full of horses and chariots of fire (angels), surrounding Elisha.

Elisha then prayed to God to blind Syria, and while they were blinded, he led them right to Samaria’s host. Elisha ordered Samaria to treat Syria as if they were captives; give them bread and water and let them go back to their master.

… eating their own children…?

The chapter ends with the story of a famine in Samaria and one Benhadad, king of Syria, came to take Samaria. Syria took Samaria. The famine was so bad, women were killing and eating their own children.
