“Tuck your cloak under your belt.” The literal Hebrew is “belt up your loins.” This refers to the custom of a man tying up his long clothing so he could move more quickly. See commentary on 2 Kings 4:29.

2Ki 9:25

“burden.” The word of the Lord can be a burden to the prophet, and then, when it is spoken, can be a burden to the people. It might have been more clear in the English to say “burdensome message” instead of “burden,” but the Hebrew word is “burden.” [For more information on “burden,” see commentary on Malachi 1:1].

2Ki 9:31

“Zimri.” Jezebel’s calling Jehu by the name “Zimri” is the figure of speech antonomasia, “name change,” where a person is called by a name other than his or her own name in order to import characteristics from that other person. Zimri killed the king to be king, but then only reigned for seven days (1 Kings 16:8-15). Jezebel called Jehu “Zimri” in an attempt to scare him into not killing her because of the implied threat of being killed soon himself. For more on antonomasia, see commentary on Matthew 17:10.
