And they went after them unto Jordan
Not finding them in the camp, and knowing the rout they would take to their own land, they went as far as Jordan, over which they must pass:
and, lo, all the way was full of garments and vessels which the Syrians
had cast away in their haste;
in their fright and flight, such of their clothes as hindered them in running; and their armour, as Josephus F3 seems rightly to understand the word used, these they threw away for quicker dispatch:
and the messengers returned and told the king:
that it was as the lepers said, and what they themselves had seen.
