John Gills Exposition of the Bible Commentary

Verse 16 (1 Kings 19:16)

And Jehu the son of Nimshi shalt thou anoint to be king over Israel ,.... This was a son of Jehoshaphat, and a grandson of Nimshi; nor does he appear to have been anointed by Elijah, but by Elisha; and being done by his order and direction was the same as if it was done by himself, unless he was twice anointed, see 2 Kings 9:1 .

and Elisha the son of Shaphat of Abelmeholah shalt thou anoint to be prophet in thy room ; which was in the half tribe of Manasseh, on this side Jordan; See Gill on Judges 7:22 .
