See Alexander Rofé, The Prophetical Stories (Jerusalem: Magnes, 1988 [translated from the 2nd Hebrew edition, 1986]), pp. 27–33. Alone of all the critics I consulted, Rofé balances adulation for the prophet with credit to the woman who “overshadows Elisha” in vv. 28–30, holds him to moral obligations and thus helps bring him down to “human proportions.”
