Chapter Summary: 2 Kings Chapter 7 Summary

1st Kings Chapter 15 Summary

2 Kings Chapter 7 Summary

Chapter seven of second Kings is about Elisha and the Syrian (Armenian) army attempting to attack Samaria. It all begins with Elisha who announced the words of the Lord in regards to the famine. The famine was coming to an end in Samaria.

One of the king of Israel’s lords spoke up with his disbelief of the foretold happenings. He didn’t believe an end to the drastic famine they were having would come. Elisha told the lord, he will see, but he won’t eat of it.

The chapter transitions into four outcast leprous men who decided to get up and find food instead of sitting as sitting ducks waiting to die. They ventured into the camp of the Syrians and they saw no one there.

Pocketing the Silver, Gold, and Other Spoils

The reason it was vacant was that God caused the Syrians to hear the noise of chariots in great number, so they vanished thinking Israel hired the Egyptians to help them. The Syrians left their horses, donkeys, and everything. The four lepers saw this and began eating to their filling.

They pocketed the silver, gold, clothing, and put it in a place they’d remember. Pretty smart of them. They felt guilty so they headed to tell the king of what they knew. When the king saw it was a true report, Elisha’s prophecy came to light, a measure of fine flour sold for a shekel.

And two measures of barley for a shekel, as the Lord promised. Now the lord who earlier didn’t believe it, he was ordered to conduct the order of the sales to the people.

If you’ve ever seen a black Friday sale at a Walmart in America, this is how the people stormed in trampling the king’s lord.

He died. He saw the food but didn’t eat thereof. The Lord’s word did not fall to the ground void. This is 2 Kings chapter 7 summary.
