sons of the prophets
2 Kings 2:3
2:3 sons of the prophets. These “sons of the prophets” were presumably in the line of prophets originally established by Samuel in what modern writers have called “schools of the prophets” (see notes on I Samuel 10:5-13; also I Samuel 19:24). Jezebel had killed many of these, but a significant remnant had been hidden and preserved (I Kings 18:4).
