John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
2 Kings 2:25

And he went from thence to Mount Carmel
Where Elijah used to frequent, and where also there might be a school of the prophets; this, according to Bunting F1, was fifty six miles from Bethel:

and from thence he returned to Samaria;
the capital of the kingdom of Israel; there to bear his testimony against idolatry, to reprove for it, and reclaim from it; this, as the same writer says F2, was thirty two miles from Carmel.
