{2 Kings 1:8} And they answered 559 z8799 x413 him, [He was] an hairy y8181 man, 1167 376 x8181 and girt 247 z8803 with a girdle 232 of leather 5785 about his loins. 4975 And he said, 559 z8799 It x1931 [is] Elijah 452 the Tishbite. 8664
an hairy man:
That is, he wore a rough garment, either made of camels' hair, as that of John Baptist, or of a skin, dressed with the hair on. Sir J. Chardin informs us, in a manuscript note on this place, cited by Mr. Harmer, that the eastern dervishes and fakeers are clothed just as Elijah was, with a hairy garment, girded with a leathern girdle. "At the same time spake the LORD by Isaiah the son of Amoz, saying, Go and loose the sackcloth from off thy loins, and put off thy shoe from thy foot. And he did so, walking naked and barefoot." {Isa 20:2} + "And it shall come to pass in that day, [that] the prophets shall be ashamed every one of his vision, when he hath prophesied; neither shall they wear a rough garment to deceive:" {Zch 13:4} + "And the same John had his raiment of camel's hair, and a leathern girdle about his loins; and his meat was locusts and wild honey." {Mtt 3:4} + "But what went ye out for to see? A man clothed in soft raiment? behold, they that wear soft [clothing] are in kings' houses." {Mtt 11:8} + "And he shall go before him in the spirit and power of Elias, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; to make ready a people prepared for the Lord." {Lke 1:17} + "And I will give [power] unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred [and] threescore days, clothed in sackcloth." {Rev 11:3}
