2 Kings 9:19 Then he sent out a second on horseback, which came to them, and said, Thus saith the king, [Is it] peace? And Jehu answered, What hast thou to do with peace? turn thee behind me.

Ver. 19. What hast thou to do with peace?] Heb., What is it to thee and peace? Trouble not thyself and me with such inquiries; I myself will answer Joram.

Ellicott's Commentary for English Readers

(19) Then.—Literally, And he sent a second rider of a horse.

Is it peace?—So the versions, many editions, and some MSS. The ordinary Hebrew text gives it as a salutation: “Peace!” but wrongly. Joram is still unsuspicious of evil. Some accident might have detained his first messenger.
