And when the king asked the woman, she told him
The whole affair; how that she had a son according to the word of Elisha, when she had been barren, and her husband old; that this child was struck with sickness, and died; and that the prophet, through his prayers, restored it to life:
so the king appointed unto her a certain officer;
the word signifies an "eunuch": him he ordered to attend upon her, and assist her, and see to it that she was put into the possession of her house and land:
saying, restore all that was her's, and all the fruits of the field,
since the day that she left the land, even till now;
not only her house and land, but all the rent, profits, and dues arising from thence during the time of her absence: the Jews except the rent of her house.
