But the rest fled to Aphek, into the city
Which perhaps was in the hands of the Syrians, and was designed for a retreat for them, should they be beaten:
and there a wall fell upon twenty seven thousand of the men
not slain in the battle; here again the Lord might be seen, who, as Abarbinel observes, fought from heaven, and either by a violent wind, or an earthquake, threw down the wall upon them just as they had got under it for shelter:
and Benhadad fled, and came into the city into an inner
or, "into a chamber within a chamber" F17, for greater secrecy.
