Elisha Helps a Widow and Her Sons4:1 Now a wife of one of the prophets appealed to Elisha for help , saying , “Your servant , my husband is dead . You know that your servant was a loyal follower of the Lord . Now the creditor is coming to take away my two boys to be his servants .” 4:2 Elisha said to her, “What can I do for you? Tell me, what do you have in the house ?” She answered , “Your servant has nothing in the house except a small jar of olive oil .” 4:3 He said , “Go and ask all your neighbors for empty containers . Get as many as you can. 4:4 Go and close the door behind you and your sons . Pour the olive oil into all the containers ; set aside each one when you have filled it.” 4:5 So she left him and closed the door behind her and her sons . As they were bringing the containers to her, she was pouring the olive oil. 4:6 When the containers were full , she said to one of her sons , “Bring me another container .” But he answered her, “There are no more .” Then the olive oil stopped flowing . 4:7 She went and told the prophet . He said , “Go , sell the olive oil . Repay your creditor , and then you and your sons can live off the rest of the profit.”
Elisha Gives Life to a Boy4:8 One day Elisha traveled to Shunem , where a prominent woman lived. She insisted that he stop for a meal . So whenever he was passing through , he would stop in there for a meal . 4:9 She said to her husband , “Look , I’m sure that the man who regularly passes through here is a very special prophet . 4:10 Let’s make a small private upper room and furnish it with a bed , table , chair , and lamp . When he visits us, he can stay there .” 4:11 One day Elisha came for a visit; he went into the upper room and rested . 4:12 He told his servant Gehazi , “Ask the Shunammite woman to come here.” So he did so and she came to him. 4:13 Elisha said to Gehazi, “Tell her, ‘Look , you have treated us with such great respect . What can I do for you? Can I put in a good word for you with the king or the commander of the army ?’” She replied , “I’m quite secure .” 4:14 So he asked Gehazi, “What can I do for her?” Gehazi replied , “She has no son , and her husband is old .” 4:15 Elisha told him, “Ask her to come here.” So he did so and she came and stood in the doorway . 4:16 He said , “About this time next year you will be holding a son .” She said , “No , my master ! O prophet , do not lie to your servant !” 4:17 The woman did conceive , and at the specified time the next year she gave birth to a son , just as Elisha had told her. 4:18 The boy grew and one day he went out to see his father who was with the harvest workers . 4:19 He said to his father , “My head ! My head !” His father told a servant , “Carry him to his mother .” 4:20 So he picked him up and took him to his mother . He sat on her lap until noon and then died . 4:21 She went up and laid him down on the prophet’s bed . She shut the door behind her and left . 4:22 She called to her husband , “Send me one of the servants and one of the donkeys , so I can go see the prophet quickly and then return .” 4:23 He said , “Why do you want to go see him today ? It is not the new moon or the Sabbath .” She said , “Everything’s fine .” 4:24 She saddled the donkey and told her servant , “Lead on . Do not stop unless I say so.” 4:25 So she went to visit the prophet at Mount Carmel . When he saw her at a distance , he said to his servant Gehazi , “Look , it’s the Shunammite woman. 4:26 Now , run to meet her and ask her, ‘Are you well ? Are your husband and the boy well ?’” She told Gehazi, “Everything’s fine .” 4:27 But when she reached the prophet on the mountain , she grabbed hold of his feet . Gehazi came near to push her away , but the prophet said , “Leave her alone , for she is very upset . upset . The Lord has kept the matter hidden from me; he didn’t tell me about it.” 4:28 She said , “Did I ask my master for a son ? Didn’t I say , ‘Don’t mislead me?’” 4:29 Elisha told Gehazi , “Tuck your robes into your belt , take my staff , and go ! Don’t stop to exchange greetings with anyone ! Place my staff on the child’s face .” 4:30 The mother of the child said , “As certainly as the Lord lives and as you live , I will not leave you.” So Elisha got up and followed her back . 4:31 Now Gehazi went on ahead of them. He placed the staff on the child’s face , but there was no sound or response . When he came back to Elisha he told him, “The child did not wake up .” 4:32 When Elisha arrived at the house , there was the child lying dead on his bed . 4:33 He went in by himself and closed the door . Then he prayed to the Lord . 4:34 He got up on the bed and spread his body out over the boy ; he put his mouth on the boy’s mouth , his eyes over the boy’s eyes , and the palms of his hands against the boy’s palms . He bent down over him, and the boy’s skin grew warm . 4:35 Elisha went back and walked around in the house . Then he got up on the bed again and bent down over him. The child sneezed seven times and opened his eyes . 4:36 Elisha called to Gehazi and said , “Get the Shunammite woman.” So he did so and she came to him. He said to her, “Take your son .” 4:37 She came in, fell at his feet , and bowed down . Then she picked up her son and left .
Elisha Makes a Meal Edible4:38 Now Elisha went back to Gilgal , while there was famine in the land . Some of the prophets were visiting him and he told his servant , “Put the big pot on the fire and boil some stew for the prophets .” 4:39 Someone went out to the field to gather some herbs and found a wild vine . He picked some of its fruit , enough to fill up the fold of his robe . He came back , cut it up , and threw the slices into the stew pot , not knowing they were harmful. 4:40 The stew was poured out for the men to eat . When they ate some of the stew , they cried out , “Death is in the pot , O prophet !” They could not eat it. 4:41 He said , “Get some flour .” Then he threw it into the pot and said , “Now pour some out for the men so they may eat .” There was no longer anything harmful in the pot .
Elisha Miraculously Feeds a Hundred People4:42 Now a man from Baal Shalisha brought some food for the prophet – twenty loaves of bread made from the firstfruits of the barley harvest, as well as fresh ears of grain . Elisha said , “Set it before the people so they may eat .” 4:43 But his attendant said , “How can I feed a hundred men with this ?” He replied , “Set it before the people so they may eat , for this is what the Lord says , ‘They will eat and have some left over .’” 4:44 So he set it before them; they ate and had some left over , just as the Lord predicted .
