2Kings 7:1 Then Elisha said, Hear you the word of the LORD; Thus saith the LORD, Tomorrow about this time shall a measure of fine flour be sold for a shekel and two measures of barley for a shekel, in the gate of Samaria.

2Kings 7:2 Then a lord on whose hand the king leaned answered the man of God and said, Behold, if the LORD would make windows in heaven, might this thing be? And he said, Behold, thou shalt see it with thine eyes, but shalt not eat thereof.

2Kings 8:7-15 And Elisha came to Damascus and Benhadad the king of Syria was sick and it was told him, saying, The man of God is come hither. And the king said unto Hazael, Take a present in your hand and go, meet the man of God and enquire of the LORD by him, saying, Shall I recover of this disease? So Hazael went to meet him and took a present with him, even of every good thing of Damascus, forty camels' burden and came and stood before him and said, Thy son.(a respectful term used back then).Benhadad king of Syria has sent me to you, saying, Shall I recover of this disease? And Elisha said unto him, Go, say unto him, You may certainly recover. Howbeit the LORD has showed me that he shall surely die.(obviously from some other cause later, but it came soon). And he.(Elisha).settled his countenance stedfastly, until he.(Hazael).was ashamed.(Elisha knew Hazael's intent to get rid of the king somehow). And the man of God wept. And Hazael said, Why weep my lord? And he answered, Because I know the evil that you will do unto the children of Israel.(Elisha knew Hazael hated the nation of Israel and that when he had done away with the king, he would occupy the position of setting to destroy Israel). Their.(ancient Israel's).strong holds will you set on fire and their young men will you slay with the sword and will dash their children and rip up their women with child. And Hazael said, But what, is your servant a dog.(in other words, 'I am in no position where I could even think of such a thing.'), that he should do this great thing? And Elisha answered, The LORD has showed me that you shalt be king over Syria. So he departed from Elisha and came to his master who said to him, What said Elisha to you? And he answered, He told me that you should surely recover. And it came to pass on the morrow, that he.(Hazael).took a thick cloth and dipped it in water and spread it on his face, so that he died.(forced him to be drowned; Hazael figured that since Benhadad was going to die somewhat soon anyway, it might as well be now and Hazael could reign). And Hazael reigned in his stead.

2Kings 8:16 And in the fifth year of Joram the son of Ahab king of.Israel, Jehoshaphat being then king of.Judah, Jehoram.(king of Judah, also called Joram as in verse 24 below).the son of Jehoshaphat king of.Judah.(so, there was intermingling between Israel and Judah here).began to reign.

2Kings 8:17 Thirty and two years old was he when he began to reign and he reigned eight years in Jerusalem.

2Kings 8:18 And he walked in the way of the kings of Israel, as did the house of Ahab, for the daughter of Ahab was his wife. And he did evil in the sight of the LORD.

2Kings 8:24 And Joram.(also called.Jehoram.as in verses 16 above and 25 below).slept with his fathers and was buried with his fathers in the city of David.(and not with the honorable kings:.2Chronicles 24:16). And Ahaziah.his son reigned in his stead.

2Kings 8:25 In the twelfth year of Joram.(also called.Jehoram; both the Jehorams, that of Israel and that of Judah were called Jehoram/Joram).the son of Ahab king of.Israel.did Ahaziah.(Judah king).the son of Jehoram king of.Judah.begin to reign.

2Kings 8:26 Two and twenty years old was Ahaziah when he began to reign and he reigned one year in Jerusalem. And his mother's name was Athaliah, the daughter of Omri king of Israel.

2Kings 8:27 And he walked in the way of the house of Ahab and did evil in the sight of the LORD, as did the house of Ahab, for he was the son in law of the house of Ahab.

2Kings 8:28 And he went with Joram.(Israel king).the son of Ahab.(Israel king).to the war against Hazael king of Syria in Ramothgilead and the Syrians wounded Joram.

2Kings 8:29 And king Joram.(Israel king).went back to be healed in Jezreel of the wounds which the Syrians had given him at Ramah, when he fought against Hazael king of Syria. And Ahaziah the son of Jehoram king of.Judah.went down to see Joram.(Israel.king).the son of Ahab in Jezreel, because he was sick.
