47 There was then no king in Edom; a provincial governor ruled.

Matthew Henry's Commentary on 1 Kings 22:47

Commentary on 1 Kings 22:41-50

(Read 1 Kings 22:41-50)

Jehoshaphat's reign appears to have been one of the best, both as to piety and prosperity. He pleased God, and God blessed him.

9 So the king of Israel set out with the king of Judah and the king of Edom. After a roundabout march of seven days, the army had no more water for themselves or for the animals with them.

Matthew Henry's Commentary on 2 Kings 3:9

Commentary on 2 Kings 3:6-19

(Read 2 Kings 3:6-19)

The king of Israel laments their distress, and the danger they were in. He called these kings together, yet he charges it upon Providence. Thus the foolishness of man perverteth his way, and then his heart fretteth against the Lord, Psalm 84:6. We need not inquire whence the water came. God is not tied to second causes. They that sincerely seek for the dew of God's grace, shall have it, and by it be made more than conquerors.
