Definitions for 2-kings 6 :8

Clarke's Commentary on 2-kings 6 :8

The king of Syria warred against Israel - This was probably the same Ben-hadad who is mentioned 2 Kings 6:24. What was the real or pretended cause of this war we cannot tell; but we may say, in numberless war cases, as Calmet says in this: "An ambitious and restless prince always finds a sufficiency of reasons to color his enterprises."

In such and such a place - The Syrian king had observed, from the disposition of the Israelitish army, in what direction it was about to make its movements; and therefore laid ambuscades where he might surprise it to the greatest advantage.

Barnes' Commentary on 2-kings 6 :8

The king of Syria - Probably the great Benhadad (see 2 Kings 6:24).
