And he laid his carcass in his own grave
Which he had prepared for himself; for, as he came from Samaria, it could not be the sepulchre of his fathers; and this was showing all the respect, and doing all the honour to him, he well could:
and they mourned over him;
the prophet and his sons: saying,
alas, my brother;
which was an usual form of lamentation at funerals in later times, see ( Jeremiah 22:18 ) .
