And he said unto his father, my head, my head
After he had been some time with him, he complained of a pain in his head, which might be owing, as Abarbinel thinks, to the sun's beating upon it, being harvest time, and hot weather; and the pain being exceeding great and vehement, he repeated his complaint, see ( Jeremiah 4:19 )

and he said to a lad, carry him home to his mother;
his father gave orders to a lad that attended the reapers to have him home to his mother, that she might give him something to ease him of his pain.
