Run now, I pray thee, to meet her
In respect to her, and to know the occasion of her coming; something is the cause of it:
and say unto her, is it well with thee? is it well with thy
it well with the child?
has any disaster befallen thee, thy husband, or the child? are all in good health? or does any disorder attend any of them?
and she answered, it is well;
as in general they were, the greatest part, she and her husband; and though the child was dead, yet, if gone to heaven, as she might hope, it was well too; and it is right to judge and say, that all that the Lord does is well: she gives a short answer to the servant, not being willing to be detained, and being desirous of telling her case to the prophet himself.
