And when he came to the tower
Of Samaria, or which was near it; a fortified place, and where was a watch, to whom he could safely commit the money and clothes:
he took them from their hand;
not willing they should go any further with him, lest the affair should be discovered to his master:
and bestowed [them] in the house;
deposited them there in the hands of some person whom he could trust; or laid them out, or ordered them to be laid out, in the purchase of houses, lands, vineyards see ( 2 Kings 5:26 )
and he let the men go, and they departed;
to their master.
