What does 2 Kings 4:30 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
2 Kings 4:30

And the mother of the child said
Having no faith in what the servant was to do, or could do:

as the Lord liveth, and as thy soul liveth, I will not leave thee;
signifying she would not go with his servant, but insisted upon it that he himself went with her, or she would not depart:

and he arose, and followed her;
influenced by her importunity, and a sense of favours he had received from her, and more especially by the Spirit of God.
