2 Kings 31 Jehoram's reign.4 Mesha rebels.6 Jehoram, with Jehoshaphat, and the king of Edom, being distressed for want of water, by Elisha obtains water, and promise of victory.21 The Moabites, deceived by the colour of the water, coming to spoil, are overcome.26 The king of Moab, failing in his attempt to break through to the king of Edom, sacrifices his son, and raises the siege.

Mr. Hanway, speaking of a Persian supper, says, "Supper being now brought in, a servant presented a basin of water, and a napkin hung over his shoulders; he went to every one in the company, and poured water on their hands to wash."

The soothing influence of music is generally acknowledged in every civilized nation. 1Sa 10:5; 16:23; 18:10; 1Ch 25:2,3; Eph 5:18,19the hand.1Ki 18:46; Eze 1:3; 3:14,22; 8:1; Ac 11:21 Make this valley.4:3; Nu 2:18,16-18 Ye shall not.1Ki 18:36-39; Ps 84:6; 107:35; Isa 41:17,18; 43:19,20; 48:21that ye may.Ex 17:6; Nu 20:8-11 And this.1Ki 3:13; Jer 32:17,27; Lu 1:37; Eph 3:20a light.20:10; 1Ki 16:31; Isa 7:13; 49:6; Eze 8:17he will.1Ki 20:13,28; Isa 7:1-9 And ye.13:17; Nu 24:17; Jud 6:16; 1Sa 15:3; 23:2fell.De 20:19,20mar.

This was frequent among the Phoenicians, Greeks, Romans, Scythians, Gauls, Africans, and others; and was the natural fruit of a religious system, which had for the objects of its worship cruel and merciless divinities. The king of Moab, in this case, sacrificed his son to obtain the favour of Chemosh his god, who, being a devil, delighted in blood and murder, and the destruction of mankind. The dearer any thing was to them, the more acceptable those idolaters thought the sacrifice, and therefore burnt their children in the fire to their honour.
