2 Kings 3:17 Meaning and Commentary

2 Kings 3:17

For thus saith the Lord, ye shall not see wind, neither shall
ye see the rain
Neither perceive the south wind blow, which usually brings rain, nor clouds gathering in the heavens, as portending it, nor any filling from thence:

yet that valley shall be filled with water;
and all the ditches dug in it:

that ye may drink, both ye and your cattle, and all your beasts;
there would be such a quantity as would be enough for them all, the soldiers, the horses they rode on, and the beasts that drew their wagons.
