1 H1121 And the sons H5030 of the prophets H559 said H477 to Elisha, H2009 Behold H4994 now, H4725 the place H834 where H8033 H3427 we dwell H6862 with you is too strait for us.
2 H3212 Let us go, H4994 we pray H3383 you, to Jordan, H3947 and take H8033 there H376 every man H6982 a beam, H6213 and let us make H4725 us a place H8033 there, H8033 where H3427 we may dwell. H559 And he answered, H3212 Go you.
3 H259 And one H559 said, H2974 Be content, H4994 I pray H3212 you, and go H5650 with your servants. H559 And he answered, H3212 I will go.
4 H3212 So he went H935 with them. And when they came H3383 to Jordan, H1504 they cut H6086 down wood.
5 H259 But as one H5307 was felling H6982 a beam, H1270 the ax H1270 head H5307 fell H413 into H4325 the water: H6817 and he cried, H559 and said, H162 Alas, H113 master! H7592 for it was borrowed.
6 H376 And the man H430 of God H559 said, H575 Where H5307 fell H7200 it? And he showed H4725 him the place. H7094 And he cut H6086 down a stick, H7993 and cast H8033 it in thither; H1270 and the iron H6687 did swim.
7 H559 Therefore said H7311 he, Take H7971 it up to you. And he put H3027 out his hand, H3947 and took it.
8 H4428 Then the king H758 of Syria H3898 warred H3478 against Israel, H3289 and took counsel H5650 with his servants, H559 saying, H6423 In such H492 and such H4725 a place H8466 shall be my camp.
9 H376 And the man H430 of God H7971 sent H4428 to the king H3478 of Israel, H559 saying, H8104 Beware H5674 that you pass H2088 not such H4725 a place; H8033 for thither H758 the Syrians H5185 are come H5181 down.
10 H4428 And the king H3478 of Israel H7971 sent H4725 to the place H834 which H376 the man H430 of God H559 told H2094 him and warned H8104 him of, and saved H8033 himself there, H259 not once H3808 nor H8147 twice.
11 H3820 Therefore the heart H4428 of the king H758 of Syria H5590 was sore troubled H2088 for this H1697 thing; H7121 and he called H5650 his servants, H559 and said H5046 to them, Will you not show H4310 me which H4428 of us is for the king H3478 of Israel?
12 H259 And one H5650 of his servants H559 said, H3808 None, H113 my lord, H4428 O king: H477 but Elisha, H5030 the prophet H3478 that is in Israel, H5046 tells H4428 the king H3478 of Israel H1697 the words H1696 that you speak H2315 in your bedchamber. H4904
13 H559 And he said, H3212 Go H7200 and spy H351 where H7971 he is, that I may send H3947 and fetch H5046 him. And it was told H559 him, saying, H2009 Behold, H1886 he is in Dothan.
14 H7971 Therefore sent H8033 he thither H5483 horses, H7393 and chariots, H3515 and a great H2428 host: H935 and they came H3915 by night, H5362 and compassed H5892 the city H5362 about.
15 H8334 And when the servant H376 of the man H430 of God H6965 was risen H7925 early, H3318 and gone H3318 forth, H2009 behold, H2428 an host H5437 compassed H5892 the city H5483 both with horses H7393 and chariots. H5288 And his servant H559 said H162 to him, Alas, H113 my master! H349 how H6213 shall we do?
16 H559 And he answered, H3372 Fear H7227 not: for they that be with us are more than they that be with them.
17 H477 And Elisha H6419 prayed, H559 and said, H3068 LORD, H4994 I pray H6491 you, open H5869 his eyes, H7200 that he may see. H3068 And the LORD H6491 opened H5869 the eyes H5288 of the young H7200 man; and he saw: H2009 and, behold, H2022 the mountain H4390 was full H5483 of horses H7393 and chariots H784 of fire H5439 round H477 about Elisha.
18 H3381 And when they came H3381 down H477 to him, Elisha H6419 prayed H3068 to the LORD, H559 and said, H5221 Smite H2088 this H1471 people, H4994 I pray H5575 you, with blindness. H5221 And he smote H5575 them with blindness H1697 according to the word H477 of Elisha.
19 H477 And Elisha H559 said H2088 to them, This H1870 is not the way, H3808 neither H2090 is this H5892 the city: H3212 follow H310 H3212 me, and I will bring H376 you to the man H834 whom H1245 you seek. H3212 But he led H8111 them to Samaria.
20 H1961 And it came H935 to pass, when they were come H8111 into Samaria, H477 that Elisha H559 said, H3068 LORD, H6491 open H5869 the eyes H428 of these H7200 men, that they may see. H3068 And the LORD H6491 opened H5869 their eyes, H7200 and they saw; H2009 and, behold, H8432 they were in the middle H8111 of Samaria.
21 H4428 And the king H3478 of Israel H559 said H477 to Elisha, H7200 when he saw H1 them, My father, H5221 shall I smite H5221 them? shall I smite them?
22 H559 And he answered, H5221 You shall not smite H5221 them: would you smite H834 those whom H7617 you have taken captive H2719 with your sword H7198 and with your bow? H7760 set H3899 bread H4325 and water H6440 before H398 them, that they may eat H8354 and drink, H3212 and go H113 to their master.
23 H3739 And he prepared H1419 great H3740 provision H398 for them: and when they had eaten H8354 and drunk, H7971 he sent H3212 them away, and they went H113 to their master. H1416 So the bands H758 of Syria H935 came H3808 no H3254 more H5750 H776 into the land H3478 of Israel.
24 H1961 And it came H310 to pass after H3651 this, H1130 that Benhadad H4428 king H758 of Syria H6908 gathered H3605 all H5927 his host, and went H6696 up, and besieged H8111 Samaria.
25 H1419 And there was a great H7458 famine H8111 in Samaria: H2009 and, behold, H6696 they besieged H5704 it, until H2543 an ass’s H7218 head H8084 was sold for fourscore H3701 pieces of silver, H7255 and the fourth H6894 part of a cab H1686 of dove’s H2755 dung H2568 for five H3701 pieces of silver.
26 H4428 And as the king H3478 of Israel H5674 was passing H2346 by on the wall, H6817 there cried H802 a woman H559 to him, saying, H3467 Help, H113 my lord, H4428 O king.
27 H559 And he said, H3068 If the LORD H3467 do not help H370 you, from where H3467 shall I help H1637 you? out of the barn floor, H176 or H3342 out of the wine press?
28 H4428 And the king H559 said H4100 to her, What H559 ails you? And she answered, H2063 This H802 woman H559 said H5414 to me, Give H1121 your son, H398 that we may eat H3117 him to day, H398 and we will eat H1121 my son H4279 to morrow.
29 H1310 So we boiled H1121 my son, H398 and did eat H559 him: and I said H312 to her on the next H3117 day, H5414 Give H1121 your son, H398 that we may eat H2244 him: and she has hid H1121 her son.
30 H1961 And it came H4428 to pass, when the king H8085 heard H1697 the words H802 of the woman, H7167 that he rent H899 his clothes; H5674 and he passed H2346 by on the wall, H5971 and the people H7200 looked, H2009 and, behold, H8242 he had sackcloth H1004 within H1320 on his flesh.
31 H559 Then he said, H430 God H6213 do H3541 so H3254 and more H3541 also H518 to me, if H7218 the head H477 of Elisha H1121 the son H8202 of Shaphat H5975 shall stand H5921 on H3117 him this day.
32 H477 But Elisha H3427 sat H1004 in his house, H2205 and the elders H3427 sat H7971 with him; and the king sent H376 a man H6440 from before H2962 him: but ere H4397 the messenger H935 came H559 to him, he said H2205 to the elders, H7200 See H3588 you how H1121 this son H7523 of a murderer H7971 has sent H5493 to take H7218 away my head? H7200 look, H4397 when the messenger H935 comes, H5462 shut H1817 the door, H3905 and hold H1817 him fast at the door: H6963 is not the sound H113 of his master’s H7272 feet H310 behind him?
