John Gill's Exposition of the Whole Bible

And she said unto them,.... The king's messengers:

thus saith the Lord God of Israel; being immediately inspired by him, she spake in his name, as prophets did:

tell the man that sent you to me; which may seem somewhat rude and unmannerly to say of a king; but when it is considered she spake not of herself, but representing the King of kings and Lord of lords, it will be seen and judged of in another light.

Wesley's Explanatory Notes

And she said unto them, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, Tell the man that sent you to me,

The man — She uses no compliments.

Tell the man that sent you — Even kings, though gods to us, are men to God, and shall be so dealt with: for with him there is no respect of persons.

John Trapp Complete Commentary

2 Kings 22:15 And she said unto them, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, Tell the man that sent you to me,

Ver. 15. Tell the man.] Kings had need to be told that they are but men. Remember that thou art but a man, said the boy to king Philip: and Agnosco me esse mortalem, I acknowledge myself a mortal, said Charles V, emperor. Huldah here speaketh from God, with whom there is no respect of persons.

Commentary Critical and Explanatory on the Whole Bible - Unabridged

And she said unto them, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, Tell the man that sent you to me, She said ... Tell the man that sent you. On being consulted, she delivered an oracular response in which judgment was blended with mercy; because it announced the impending calamities that at no distant period were to overtake the city and its inhabitants, but at the same time consoled the king with an assurance that this season of punishment and sorrow should not be during his lifetime, on account of the faith, penitence, and pious zeal for the divine glory and worship which, in his public capacity, and with his royal influence, he had displayed.
