    Clarke's Commentary on 2 Kings 5:14

    Then went he down - He felt the force of this reasoning, and made a trial, probably expecting little success.

    Like unto the flesh of a little child - The loathsome scurf was now entirely removed; his flesh assumed the appearance and health of youth; and the whole mass of his blood, and other juices, became purified, refined, and exalted! How mighty is God! What great things can he do by the simplest and feeblest of means!

    Barnes' Notes on 2 Kings 5:14

    Seven times - Compare 1 Kings 18:43. In both cases a somewhat severe trial was made of the individual's faith. Compare the seven compassings of Jericho, and the sudden fall of the walls Joshua 6:3-20.
