Adam Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

Verse 28 (2 Kings 4:28)

Did I desire a son of my lord ? - I expressed no such wish to thee; I was contented and happy; and when thou didst promise me a son, did I not say, Do not deceive me? Do not mock me with a child which shall grow up to be attractive and engaging, but of whom I shall soon be deprived by death.
