New Defender's Study Bible Notes

19:16 Elisha. This verse introduces Elisha as Elijah’s successor, and also Jehu and Hazael, the next kings of Israel and Syria. All of these were, in effect, to be anointed to their callings by Elijah, although Hazael was actually anointed by Elisha and Jehu by Elisha’s servant (II Kings 8:13-15; 9:1-6).
