3. Calling the things not being as being 4:1-17
2 Kings 4 :1 4:1 Now a certain woman from among the wives of the sons of the prophets cried out to Elisha, saying, Your servant my husband is dead, and you know that your servant feared Jehovah. And the creditor has come to take my two achildren to himself as servants.
2 Kings 4 :2 4:2 And Elisha said to her, What shall I do for you? Tell me, what do you have in your house? And she said, Your servant has nothing at all in the house, except a jar of aoil.
2 Kings 4 :3 4:3 And he said, Go and borrow vessels outside, from all your neighbors, empty vessels, and not just a few.
2 Kings 4 :4 4:4 Then go in and shut the door behind you and your sons, and pour out into all those vessels; and each one you fill set aside.
2 Kings 4 :5 4:5 So she went away from him and shut the door behind herself and her sons; and they brought the vessels to her, and she poured out into them.
2 Kings 4 :6 4:6 And when she had 1filled the vessels, she said to her son, Bring me another vessel. But he said to her, There is no other vessel. And the oil stopped.
2 Kings 4 :7 4:7 And she went and told the man of God. And he said, Go and sell the oil, and pay your debt; and you and your sons can live off the rest.
2 Kings 4 :8 4:8 And one day Elisha was passing through Shunem; and there was a wealthy woman there, who compelled him to have a meal. So whenever he passed through, he would turn aside and have a meal there.
2 Kings 4 :9 4:9 And she said to her husband, Now I know that this man who continually passes through unto us is a holy 1man of God.
2 Kings 4 :10 4:10 Let us make a little walled upper room and put a bed and a table and a chair and a lamp for him; and when he comes to us, he can turn aside there.
2 Kings 4 :11 4:11 Then one day he came there, and he turned aside into the upper room and lay down there.
2 Kings 4 :12 4:12 And he said to aGehazi his attendant, Call this Shunammite. And he called her, and she stood before him.
2 Kings 4 :13 4:13 And he said to him, Say to her, You have gone to all this trouble for us; what can be done for you? Should you be spoken of to the king or to the captain of the army? And she said, I dwell in the midst of my people.
2 Kings 4 :14 4:14 And he said, What then can be done for her? And Gehazi said, Indeed she has no son, and her husband is old.
2 Kings 4 :15 4:15 Then he said, Call her. And he called her, and she stood at the door.
2 Kings 4 :16 4:16 And he said, At this time anext year you shall embrace a son. And she said, No, my lord, O man of God, do not deceive your servant.
2 Kings 4 :17 4:17 And the woman conceived and bore a son at that time the next year, as Elisha had told her.
4. Resurrecting the dead 4:18-37
2 Kings 4 :18 4:18 And when the child grew up, one day he went out to his father among the reapers;
2 Kings 4 :19 4:19 And he said to his father, My head! My head! And he said to his attendant, Carry him to his mother.
2 Kings 4 :20 4:20 And when he had carried him in and brought him to his mother, the child lay upon her lap until noon, then died.
2 Kings 4 :21 4:21 And she went up and laid him on the bed of the man of God, and she shut the door behind him and went out.
2 Kings 4 :22 4:22 Then she called her husband and said, Send me one of the attendants and one of the donkeys that I may run to the man of God and return.
2 Kings 4 :23 4:23 And he said, Why will you go to him today? It is neither the new moon nor the Sabbath. But she said, It will be fine.
2 Kings 4 :24 4:24 Then she saddled the donkey and said to her attendant, Urge the beast, and do not restrain the ride for me unless I tell you.
2 Kings 4 :25 4:25 So she went. And she came to the man of God at Mount aCarmel. And when the man of God saw her at a distance, he said to Gehazi his attendant, That is the Shunammite over there.
2 Kings 4 :26 4:26 Run now to meet her, and say to her, Is it well with you? Is it well with your husband? Is it well with the child? And she said, It is well.
2 Kings 4 :27 4:27 And when she came to the man of God on the mountain, she clung to his feet. And Gehazi approached to push her away, but the man of God said, Leave her alone; for she is bitter in soul, and Jehovah has hidden the matter from me and has not told me about it.
2 Kings 4 :28 4:28 And she said, Did I ask my lord for a son? Did I not say, aDo not mislead me?
2 Kings 4 :29 4:29 Then he said to Gehazi, aGird up your loins, and take my staff in your hand, and go. If you meet anyone, do bnot greet him; and if anyone greets you, do not respond to him. And clay my staff upon the face of the boy.
2 Kings 4 :30 4:30 And the mother of the boy said, As Jehovah lives and as your soul lives, I will not leave you. And he rose up and followed her.
2 Kings 4 :31 4:31 And Gehazi passed on before them and set the staff upon the boy’s face, but there was no sound or reaction. Therefore he returned to meet him and told him, saying, The boy has not awakened.
2 Kings 4 :32 4:32 And when Elisha went into the house, there was the dead boy, laid out on his bed.
2 Kings 4 :33 4:33 And he went in and ashut the door behind the two of them, and he prayed to Jehovah.
2 Kings 4 :34 4:34 Then he got up and alay on the child, and he put his mouth on his mouth and his eyes on his eyes and his palms on his palms; and he stretched himself over him, and the flesh of the child became warm.
2 Kings 4 :35 4:35 And he got down and walked about in the house once to and fro. Then he got up and stretched himself over him, and the boy sneezed seven times. Then the boy 1opened his eyes.
2 Kings 4 :36 4:36 And he called Gehazi and said, Call that Shunammite. So he called her. And when she came to him, he said, Take up your son.
2 Kings 4 :37 4:37 And she came and fell at his feet and bowed herself to the ground. And she took up her ason and went out.
5. Nullifying the poison of the wild gourds with flour 4:38-41
2 Kings 4 :38 4:38 Then Elisha returned to Gilgal, and there was a afamine in the land. And the sons of the prophets sat before him. And he said to his attendant, Put on the big pot, and boil some stew for the sons of the prophets.
2 Kings 4 :39 4:39 And one went out into the field to gather herbs. And he found a wild vine and gathered from it a lapful of wild gourds. And he came and cut them up into the pot of stew, though they did not know what they were.
2 Kings 4 :40 4:40 And they poured out the stew for the men to eat. And while they were eating some of the stew, they cried out and said, O man of God, there is poison in the pot. And they were not able to eat it.
2 Kings 4 :41 4:41 And he said, Then bring some 1flour. And he threw it into the pot and said, Pour it out for the people that they may eat. And there was nothing harmful in the pot.
2 Kings 4 :42 4:42 Then a man came from Baal-shalishah and brought to the man of God bread of the firstfruits, twenty loaves of barley, and fresh ears of grain in his sack. And Elisha said, aGive it to the people that they may eat.
2 Kings 4 :43 4:43 And his servant said, How can I set this before a hundred people? And he said, Give it to the people that they may eat; for thus says Jehovah, They shall eat and have some left.
2 Kings 4 :44 4:44 So he set it before them; and they ate, and there was 1some left, according to the word of Jehovah.
