There was no time to think. Everyone panicked and ran for their lives. They scattered into the night in their undergarments. Who would take the time to get dressed?
This is where some of the clothing came from that was left behind 7: And so the Syrians flee, without food, without much clothing, and most likely without their weapons.
It must have been a long, hard journey home.Feast of the Gods, 32회, EP32, #12
And for those who did arrive home in Syria, there would have been a lot of explaining to do. But to deliver the people of Samaria from the Syrians and from starvation, God orchestrated all of this. These men were outcasts, who were not allowed inside the city of Samaria.
They were most likely beggars. You can imagine how much success they would have had asking for alms in these difficult times. They were in a desperate situation, and so they decided to take desperate measures. They knew there was no food in Samaria. They assumed that there was plenty of food in the Syrian camp.
And so they agreed to go to the Syrians and beg for mercy. If the Syrians killed them, they would simply die a little sooner, and perhaps more mercifully than by starvation. But if the Syrians took pity on them, then they might continue to live. None of these lepers anticipated what did happen. I think that we can safely conclude that none of them acted in true faith. This was a gamble they were willing to take because they believed they had nothing to lose.
And remember that seeking refuge in the camp of the Syrians was to become a traitor to Israel. Put yourself in the sandals of one of these men for a moment, and live out the drama of that moment. As they approach the Syrian camp, they see the tents from a distance.
As they get nearer, they see the horses, still tied up, but they do not see so much as one Syrian. They must have made their way into the camp with fear and trembling. I am tempted to think that the campfires were burning, with breakfast still cooking on the fire. One of them works up the courage to pull back the flap of one of the tents, but no one is inside.
They look in one tent and then another, but there is not one person in the entire camp!
The tents are not empty, however. Inside each tent is great treasure—food, clothing, money, and the spoils of war. The supply tents are full of grain and other food. These lepers have struck it rich.
The first inclination of these four men is to gather up all the treasure they can find and to hide it. When I was young, my family used to go wild blackberry picking. These delicious berries are not always easy to find, nor are they easy to pick. And so when we would find an especially good berry patch, we would be very quiet and not tell anyone. If the truth were told, I would race ahead and try to pick as many berries as I could before my sisters came along to get in on the bounty.
These four lepers are frantically hoarding and hiding the treasures they have found, but there is so much of it there is no way they can possibly gather it all. The lepers finally come to their senses.
They realize that while they are stuffing themselves with food and gathering up wealth, the people back in the city of Samaria are on the brink of starvation. And so they return to the gates of Samaria, where they call out the good news to the gatekeepers it seems clear that they were banned from entering the city.
The gatekeepers passed this report on to the king, who had to be awakened from his sleep. His response should not surprise us. Surely this was a trap, he reasoned, and the Syrians were hiding out nearby, just waiting for the people of Samaria to come out of the city, where they could fall upon them and kill them.
From a military point of view, this was a very logical and reasonable conclusion. But there was another factor that the king had ignored: Elisha had prophesied the very thing that the lepers were reporting. The king did not make any connection between the promise of Elisha and the proclamation of the lepers.
He expected disaster, and not deliverance, even when that deliverance was promised and proclaimed. His words are well chosen for a king who does not believe in God.
He simply encourages the king to consider what he has to lose by checking out this report more carefully. His logic is essentially the same as that of the lepers. They were all going to die anyway, so why not take a chance if it might save their lives? The king could well afford to send a few good men to the Syrian camp to see if there was any truth to the report of the lepers. If it was a trap, and they were killed, they would have died of starvation before long anyway.
And if the report was true, then the whole city could be spared. The king has nothing to lose—and everything to gain. To their amazement and delight, they see with their own eyes that the lepers were right. The Syrian camp had been abandoned. The horses and chariots, food and supplies, have been left there at the camp.
Everything that the lepers had said was true. Let me point out something that may be worth noting. The evidence of a Syrian retreat was there for all to see, but the explanation for their flight is given only to the reader. The reader is told so that he will recognize the hand of God in all of this, bringing about in a most unusual way the fulfillment of His word.
I never cease to be amazed at the creativity of the Creator. He seldom works according to the same script, but each time He saves, He does so in a unique way that shows His wisdom and power. So far as I can recall, this is the only time that God saves His people in this fashion.
God is never limited as to the means He can employ. I should point out something else from this miracle. God accomplishes several things at one time here. It put an end to the blockade of the city. Secondly, it also provided an abundance of food for the people of Samaria. What a marvelous God we serve! But there is possibly a third accomplishment here as well.
Suppose that Naaman was still the commander of the Syrian army at this time, or at least that he was somehow among the Syrians at this camp.
If this were the case, God would have spared his life without the shedding of any Syrian blood. The method God used to disperse the Syrian army did not include confrontation and warfare. God graciously spared the Syrians, as well as the people of Samaria. But there is another promise that is kept as well, one that is given even more emphasis. The fulfillment of this prophecy is described in 2 Kings 7: Do you suppose that this was done as punishment for not cutting off the head of Elisha as he was commanded?
This would be like a detective being given school crossing duty. He may very well have been on duty when the lepers reported that the Syrians had fled 2 Kings 7: Elisha had instructed those with him in the house to blockade the door, so that the servant could not enter. Somehow, the servant was able to force his way in, and thus the confrontation with Elisha that is recorded in our text. And now, it is this same servant who is the gatekeeper. The crowds break down the gates, it would seem, and the gatekeeper is crushed.
He who lives by the sword dies by the sword. He who breaks down doors is crushed by gates that are broken down. Conclusion This is an amazing text. It shows man at his or her worst, as we see in the case of the women who covenanted to cannibalize their children.
The fact is, no one looks good in our text, except Elisha. The people of Samaria show no signs of repentance, even though their plight is the result of their own sin. The king gives no evidence of repentance either, and indeed he issues an order for Elisha to be put to death. The lepers and those involved in sending out the search party to the Syrian camp do not seem to act out of faith, but only as a calculated risk, believing that they have little to lose.
In our text, God provides for His people, not because of their goodness, and not even because of their repentance. God provides salvation physically speaking for them in spite of their sins.
Now, as then, God deals bountifully with men on the basis of grace. It was not that the people of Samaria deserved anything from God, other than judgment. Indeed, their oppression at the hands of the Syrians was the just consequence of their unbelief and rebellion against God. In spite of their sin, God brought about a mighty salvation, so that we might forever marvel at His power and grace.
Nowhere is the sinfulness of men and the grace and power of God more evident than at the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, and His empty tomb.
By this one great act, Jesus bore the punishment for our sins, and accomplished salvation for all who believe in Him. As I have reflected on this text, I have come to realize how much it exemplifies Deuteronomy, chapters In these chapters, Moses speaks for God, summarizing the blessings and cursings of God and their basis.
It also parallels these chapters in Deuteronomy in terms of its proportions. These blessings are summed up in Deuteronomy The cursings begin at Deuteronomy God knew from the beginning that men would not keep His law, and that the judgment section would thus be the one that would apply to Israel throughout its history.
And so we find in our text that one verse 7: As you well know, next Sunday will be the second day of the new millennium. Y2K fears have been troubling many over this past year, and some have agonized about this for an even longer period of time.
I believe that Christians should be prudent about preparing for the future. But I also think that some Christians have become almost paranoid in their fears about what is going to happen this coming week. Our text should help us put this matter into perspective. If it teaches us anything, it is that God cares for His people. The means for that provision were not evident beforehand, and they were not even clearly understood afterward. But God did provide, just as He had promised, and He did so through the very people who seemed destined to destroy them—the Syrians.
Let us remember our text as we deal with our fears concerning the future. Think about how the flowers of the field grow. They do not work or spin, 29 yet I say to you that Solomon in all his glory was not clothed like one of these! The Y2K bug is the result of the work computer programming of those who did not take into account the long-term consequences of their actions.
They focused only on the relatively near future. It is not that programmers did not realize there would be a problem; they simply put off dealing with it. It is interesting to me to see how concerned people have become over the consequences of Y2K. Great amounts of money have been spent to avoid potential disaster, and many have agonized about what the outcome might be. Many go about their lives as though the future will not come, and so they live day-to-day, thinking only in terms of the near future, rather than in terms of eternity.
He died to solve the problem of our sins, and all those who have trusted in Him will reign with Him when He returns to rule over this earth. Are you ready for this millennium? It may come sooner than you think. Our text also teaches us a lesson about evangelism. Evangelism does not place the emphasis on the messenger, but on the message, and on the great need of those who are lost to hear the good news of the gospel.
You and I may be beggars, my friend, but if we have come to faith in Christ, we have found something that the world desperately needs. Just as the lepers would have sinned by not sharing their discovery with those who were perishing, so you and I sin when we keep the good news of the gospel to ourselves.
This text teaches us about faith. I think that there is an important principle for all of us to learn here: That did not keep God from providing the food He promised. Too often I find Christians trusting God only as far as their imagination will take them.
But let us remember our text, and these words that Paul has written: If they had known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. For the Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God 1 Corinthians 2: This text is in complete harmony with the rest of the Bible in that it encourages the people of God to persevere and to hold fast until our Lord provides what He has promised.
God often waits till the last moment to provide what He has promised, so that we might learn to persevere, and to trust Him.
There are those whose marriages are not what they had hoped. Many who have been disappointed in their marriages have abandoned them. They were not willing to wait on God.
There are those who have greatly desired to be married to a godly mate, only to despair when God does not answer as quickly as they had hoped. I know of all too many who have hastily entered into marriage with an unbeliever, fearing that this was their only chance. And those who have done so have, without exception in my experiencecome to regret it.
How sad that they did not wait to see the provision of God for their needs.
We look down on Samaria and see Elisha preaching on the city streets. He is also promising them that God is going to provide, and that they will not perish, and this within 24 hours. Next, we zoom in on the two women as they are sacrificing the first child for a meal. In their minds, there was nothing else they could do. They were convinced that they would starve otherwise. We now switch to a wide-angle lens. We see the city of Samaria from a distance. We see the Syrian troops who are encamped outside the city.
And off in the distance we see a caravan approaching, a caravan that has come from Damascus, loaded down with a fresh shipment of supplies. We watch as those supplies are brought into the Syrian camp and unloaded into supply tents. And then we look on as the Syrian soldiers scatter, fleeing for their lives or so they think.
Both the Syrian soldiers and the people of Samaria were guilty of failing to perceive reality—to see things as they really are. We can excuse the Syrian soldiers because it was God who deceived them.

They could believe nothing other than what He intended for them to believe. But the people of Samaria were different. They were told why they were suffering, and what they should do. It only takes a single step back to free yourself, girl. The Competition Just like 22 years ago, the main ingredient is carp. The teachers are assigned to prepare the carp and here is when Baek Sul allows her darkness to take over. After much hesitation, she finally picks up the fish and places it on the cutting board.
When she tries to stab it, both the knife and the fish slip out of her grasp, falling weakly to the ground. He leaves without making his presence known. I think it would be nice if he at least glances at In Joo…. Doo Hee chases after Baek Sul to say a few last words.

You might cause a scandal too. Their date is having dinner outside, under the stars. He looks so dashing wearing that black suit. What a girl gotta do to find this perfect man? This type of scenarios happens often in real life, and I would like to slap all the people in this scene alone.
