And the sonsH1121 of the prophetsH5030 saidH559 to Elisha,H477 BeholdH2009 now,H4994 the placeH4725 whereH834 H8033 we dwellH3427 with you is too straitH6862 for us.
Let us go,H3212 we prayH4994 you, to Jordan,H3383 and takeH3947 thereH8033 every manH376 a beam,H6982 and let us makeH6213 us a placeH4725 there,H8033 whereH8033 we may dwell.H3427 And he answered,H559 GoH3212 you.
And oneH259 said,H559 Be content,H2974 I prayH4994 you, and goH3212 with your servants.H5650 And he answered,H559 I will go.H3212
So he wentH3212 with them. And when they cameH935 to Jordan,H3383 they cutH1504 down wood.H6086
But as oneH259 was fellingH5307 a beam,H6982 the axH1270 headH1270 fellH5307 intoH413 the water:H4325 and he cried,H6817 and said,H559 Alas,H162 master!H113 for it was borrowed.H7592
And the manH376 of GodH430 said,H559 WhereH575 fellH5307 it? And he showedH7200 him the place.H4725 And he cutH7094 down a stick,H6086 and castH7993 it in thither;H8033 and the ironH1270 did swim.H6687
Therefore saidH559 he, TakeH7311 it up to you. And he putH7971 out his hand,H3027 and tookH3947 it.
Then the kingH4428 of SyriaH758 warredH3898 against Israel,H3478 and took counselH3289 with his servants,H5650 saying,H559 In suchH6423 and suchH492 a placeH4725 shall be my camp.H8466
And the manH376 of GodH430 sentH7971 to the kingH4428 of Israel,H3478 saying,H559 BewareH8104 that you passH5674 not suchH2088 a place;H4725 for thitherH8033 the SyriansH758 are comeH5185 down.H5181
And the kingH4428 of IsraelH3478 sentH7971 to the placeH4725 whichH834 the manH376 of GodH430 toldH559 him and warnedH2094 him of, and savedH8104 himself there,H8033 not onceH259 norH3808 twice.H8147
Therefore the heartH3820 of the kingH4428 of SyriaH758 was sore troubledH5590 for thisH2088 thing;H1697 and he calledH7121 his servants,H5650 and saidH559 to them, Will you not showH5046 me whichH4310 of us is for the kingH4428 of Israel?H3478
And oneH259 of his servantsH5650 said,H559 None,H3808 my lord,H113 O king:H4428 but Elisha,H477 the prophetH5030 that is in Israel,H3478 tellsH5046 the kingH4428 of IsraelH3478 the wordsH1697 that you speakH1696 in your bedchamber.H2315 H4904
And he said,H559 GoH3212 and spyH7200 whereH351 he is, that I may sendH7971 and fetchH3947 him. And it was toldH5046 him, saying,H559 Behold,H2009 he is in Dothan.H1886
Therefore sentH7971 he thitherH8033 horses,H5483 and chariots,H7393 and a greatH3515 host:H2428 and they cameH935 by night,H3915 and compassedH5362 the cityH5892 about.H5362
And when the servantH8334 of the manH376 of GodH430 was risenH6965 early,H7925 and goneH3318 forth,H3318 behold,H2009 an hostH2428 compassedH5437 the cityH5892 both with horsesH5483 and chariots.H7393 And his servantH5288 saidH559 to him, Alas,H162 my master!H113 howH349 shall we do?H6213
And he answered,H559 FearH3372 not: for they that be with us are moreH7227 than they that be with them.
And ElishaH477 prayed,H6419 and said,H559 LORD,H3068 I prayH4994 you, openH6491 his eyes,H5869 that he may see.H7200 And the LORDH3068 openedH6491 the eyesH5869 of the youngH5288 man; and he saw:H7200 and, behold,H2009 the mountainH2022 was fullH4390 of horsesH5483 and chariotsH7393 of fireH784 roundH5439 about Elisha.H477
And when they cameH3381 downH3381 to him, ElishaH477 prayedH6419 to the LORD,H3068 and said,H559 SmiteH5221 thisH2088 people,H1471 I prayH4994 you, with blindness.H5575 And he smoteH5221 them with blindnessH5575 according to the wordH1697 of Elisha.H477
And ElishaH477 saidH559 to them, ThisH2088 is not the way,H1870 neitherH3808 is thisH2090 the city:H5892 followH3212 H310 me, and I will bringH3212 you to the manH376 whomH834 you seek.H1245 But he ledH3212 them to Samaria.H8111
And it cameH1961 to pass, when they were comeH935 into Samaria,H8111 that ElishaH477 said,H559 LORD,H3068 openH6491 the eyesH5869 of theseH428 men, that they may see.H7200 And the LORDH3068 openedH6491 their eyes,H5869 and they saw;H7200 and, behold,H2009 they were in the middleH8432 of Samaria.H8111
And the kingH4428 of IsraelH3478 saidH559 to Elisha,H477 when he sawH7200 them, My father,H1 shall I smiteH5221 them? shall I smiteH5221 them?
And he answered,H559 You shall not smiteH5221 them: would you smiteH5221 those whomH834 you have taken captiveH7617 with your swordH2719 and with your bow?H7198 setH7760 breadH3899 and waterH4325 beforeH6440 them, that they may eatH398 and drink,H8354 and goH3212 to their master.H113
And he preparedH3739 greatH1419 provisionH3740 for them: and when they had eatenH398 and drunk,H8354 he sentH7971 them away, and they wentH3212 to their master.H113 So the bandsH1416 of SyriaH758 cameH935 noH3808 moreH3254 H5750 into the landH776 of Israel.H3478
And it cameH1961 to pass afterH310 this,H3651 that BenhadadH1130 kingH4428 of SyriaH758 gatheredH6908 allH3605 his host, and wentH5927 up, and besiegedH6696 Samaria.H8111
And there was a greatH1419 famineH7458 in Samaria:H8111 and, behold,H2009 they besiegedH6696 it, untilH5704 an ass'sH2543 headH7218 was sold for fourscoreH8084 pieces of silver,H3701 and the fourthH7255 part of a cabH6894 of dove'sH1686 dungH2755 for fiveH2568 pieces of silver.H3701
And as the kingH4428 of IsraelH3478 was passingH5674 by on the wall,H2346 there criedH6817 a womanH802 to him, saying,H559 Help,H3467 my lord,H113 O king.H4428
And he said,H559 If the LORDH3068 do not helpH3467 you, from whereH370 shall I helpH3467 you? out of the barn floor,H1637 orH176 out of the wine press?H3342
And the kingH4428 saidH559 to her, WhatH4100 ails you? And she answered,H559 ThisH2063 womanH802 saidH559 to me, GiveH5414 your son,H1121 that we may eatH398 him to day,H3117 and we will eatH398 my sonH1121 to morrow.H4279
So we boiledH1310 my son,H1121 and did eatH398 him: and I saidH559 to her on the nextH312 day,H3117 GiveH5414 your son,H1121 that we may eatH398 him: and she has hidH2244 her son.H1121
And it cameH1961 to pass, when the kingH4428 heardH8085 the wordsH1697 of the woman,H802 that he rentH7167 his clothes;H899 and he passedH5674 by on the wall,H2346 and the peopleH5971 looked,H7200 and, behold,H2009 he had sackclothH8242 withinH1004 on his flesh.H1320
Then he said,H559 GodH430 doH6213 soH3541 and moreH3254 alsoH3541 to me, ifH518 the headH7218 of ElishaH477 the sonH1121 of ShaphatH8202 shall standH5975 onH5921 him this day.H3117
But ElishaH477 satH3427 in his house,H1004 and the eldersH2205 satH3427 with him; and the king sentH7971 a manH376 from beforeH6440 him: but ereH2962 the messengerH4397 cameH935 to him, he saidH559 to the elders,H2205 SeeH7200 you howH3588 this sonH1121 of a murdererH7523 has sentH7971 to takeH5493 away my head?H7218 look,H7200 when the messengerH4397 comes,H935 shutH5462 the door,H1817 and holdH3905 him fast at the door:H1817 is not the soundH6963 of his master'sH113 feetH7272 behindH310 him?
And while he yetH5750 talkedH1696 with them, behold,H2009 the messengerH4397 cameH3381 downH3381 to him: and he said,H559 Behold,H2009 thisH2063 evilH7451 is of the LORD;H3068 whatH4100 should I waitH3176 for the LORDH3068 any longer?H5750
