2 Kings 2

And it came to pass, when the LORD
<03068>
would take up
<05927> (8687)
Elijah
<0452>
into heaven
<08064>
by a whirlwind
<05591>_,
that Elijah
<0452>
went
<03212> (8799)
with Elisha
<0477>
from Gilgal
<01537>_.
And Elijah
<0452>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto Elisha
<0477>_,
Tarry
<03427> (8798)
here, I pray thee; for the LORD
<03068>
hath sent
<07971> (8804)
me to Bethel
<01008>_.
And Elisha
<0477>
said
<0559> (8799)
[unto him, As] the LORD
<03068>
liveth
<02416>_,
and [as] thy soul
<05315>
liveth
<02416>_,
I will not leave
<05800> (8799)
thee. So they went down
<03381> (8799)
to Bethel
<01008>_.
And the sons
<01121>
of the prophets
<05030>
that [were] at Bethel
<01008>
came forth
<03318> (8799)
to Elisha
<0477>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, Knowest
<03045> (8804)
thou that the LORD
<03068>
will take away
<03947> (8802)
thy master
<0113>
from thy head
<07218>
to day
<03117>_?
And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
Yea, I know
<03045> (8804)
[it]; hold ye your peace
<02814> (8685)_.
And Elijah
<0452>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, Elisha
<0477>_,
tarry
<03427> (8798)
here, I pray thee; for the LORD
<03068>
hath sent
<07971> (8804)
me to Jericho
<03405>_.
And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
[As] the LORD
<03068>
liveth
<02416>_,
and [as] thy soul
<05315>
liveth
<02416>_,
I will not leave
<05800> (8799)
thee. So they came
<0935> (8799)
to Jericho
<03405>_.
And the sons
<01121>
of the prophets
<05030>
that [were] at Jericho
<03405>
came
<05066> (8799)
to Elisha
<0477>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, Knowest
<03045> (8804)
thou that the LORD
<03068>
will take away
<03947> (8802)
thy master
<0113>
from thy head
<07218>
to day
<03117>_?
And he answered
<0559> (8799)_,
Yea, I know
<03045> (8804)
[it]; hold ye your peace
<02814> (8685)_.
And Elijah
<0452>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, Tarry
<03427> (8798)_,
I pray thee, here; for the LORD
<03068>
hath sent
<07971> (8804)
me to Jordan
<03383>_.
And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
[As] the LORD
<03068>
liveth
<02416>_,
and [as] thy soul
<05315>
liveth
<02416>_,
I will not leave
<05800> (8799)
thee. And they two
<08147>
went on
<03212> (8799)_.
And fifty
<02572>
men
<0376>
of the sons
<01121>
of the prophets
<05030>
went
<01980> (8804)_,
and stood
<05975> (8799)
to view
<05048>
afar off
<07350>_:
and they two
<08147>
stood
<05975> (8804)
by Jordan
<03383>_.
{to view: Heb. in sight, or, over against}
And Elijah
<0452>
took
<03947> (8799)
his mantle
<0155>_,
and wrapped [it] together
<01563> (8799)_,
and smote
<05221> (8686)
the waters
<04325>_,
and they were divided
<02673> (8735)
hither and thither, so that they two
<08147>
went over
<05674> (8799)
on dry
<02724>
ground.
And it came to pass, when they were gone over
<05674> (8800)_,
that Elijah
<0452>
said
<0559> (8804)
unto Elisha
<0477>_,
Ask
<07592> (8798)
what I shall do
<06213> (8799)
for thee, before I be taken away
<03947> (8735)
from thee. And Elisha
<0477>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
I pray thee, let a double
<08147>
portion
<06310>
of thy spirit
<07307>
be upon me.
And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
Thou hast asked
<07592> (8800)
a hard thing
<07185> (8689)_:
[nevertheless], if thou see
<07200> (8799)
me [when I am] taken
<03947> (8795)
from thee, it shall be so unto thee; but if not, it shall not be [so]. {Thou hast...: Heb. Thou hast done hard in asking}
And it came to pass, as they still
<01980> (8800)
went on
<01980> (8802)_,
and talked
<01696> (8763)_,
that, behold, [there appeared] a chariot
<07393>
of fire
<0784>_,
and horses
<05483>
of fire
<0784>_,
and parted
<06504> (8686)
them both
<08147>
asunder
<0996>_;
and Elijah
<0452>
went up
<05927> (8799)
by a whirlwind
<05591>
into heaven
<08064>_.
And Elisha
<0477>
saw
<07200> (8802)
[it], and he cried
<06817> (8764)_,
My father
<01>_,
my father
<01>_,
the chariot
<07393>
of Israel
<03478>_,
and the horsemen
<06571>
thereof. And he saw
<07200> (8804)
him no more: and he took hold
<02388> (8686)
of his own clothes
<0899>_,
and rent
<07167> (8799)
them in two
<08147>
pieces
<07168>_.
He took up
<07311> (8686)
also the mantle
<0155>
of Elijah
<0452>
that fell
<05307> (8804)
from him, and went back
<07725> (8799)_,
and stood
<05975> (8799)
by the bank
<08193>
of Jordan
<03383>_;
{bank: Heb. lip}
And he took
<03947> (8799)
the mantle
<0155>
of Elijah
<0452>
that fell
<05307> (8804)
from him, and smote
<05221> (8686)
the waters
<04325>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
Where [is] the LORD
<03068>
God
<0430>
of Elijah
<0452>_?
and when he also had smitten
<05221> (8686)
the waters
<04325>_,
they parted
<02673> (8735)
hither and thither: and Elisha
<0477>
went over
<05674> (8799)_.
And when the sons
<01121>
of the prophets
<05030>
which [were] to view at Jericho
<03405>
saw
<07200> (8799)
him, they said
<0559> (8799)_,
The spirit
<07307>
of Elijah
<0452>
doth rest
<05117> (8804)
on Elisha
<0477>_.
And they came
<0935> (8799)
to meet
<07125> (8800)
him, and bowed
<07812> (8691)
themselves to the ground
<0776>
before him.
And they said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, Behold now, there be
<03426>
with thy servants
<05650>
fifty
<02572>
strong
<02428>
men
<01121> <0582>_;
let them go
<03212> (8799)_,
we pray thee, and seek
<01245> (8762)
thy master
<0113>_:
lest peradventure the Spirit
<07307>
of the LORD
<03068>
hath taken him up
<05375> (8804)_,
and cast
<07993> (8686)
him upon some
<0259>
mountain
<02022>_,
or into some
<0259>
valley
<01516>_.
And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
Ye shall not send
<07971> (8799)_.
{strong...: Heb. sons of strength} {some mountain: Heb. one of the mountains}
And when they urged
<06484> (8799)
him till he was ashamed
<0954> (8800)_,
he said
<0559> (8799)_,
Send
<07971> (8798)_.
They sent
<07971> (8799)
therefore fifty
<02572>
men
<0376>_;
and they sought
<01245> (8762)
three
<07969>
days
<03117>_,
but found
<04672> (8804)
him not.
And when they came again
<07725> (8799)
to him, (for he tarried
<03427> (8802)
at Jericho
<03405>,)
he said
<0559> (8799)
unto them, Did I not say
<0559> (8804)
unto you, Go
<03212> (8799)
not?
And the men
<0582>
of the city
<05892>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto Elisha
<0477>_,
Behold, I pray thee, the situation
<04186>
of this city
<05892>
[is] pleasant
<02896>_,
as my lord
<0113>
seeth
<07200> (8802)_:
but the water
<04325>
[is] naught
<07451>_,
and the ground
<0776>
barren
<07921> (8764)_.
{barren: Heb. causing to miscarry}
And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
Bring
<03947> (8798)
me a new
<02319>
cruse
<06746>_,
and put
<07760> (8798)
salt
<04417>
therein. And they brought
<03947> (8799)
[it] to him.
And he went forth
<03318> (8799)
unto the spring
<04161>
of the waters
<04325>_,
and cast
<07993> (8686)
the salt
<04417>
in there, and said
<0559> (8799)_,
Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>_,
I have healed
<07495> (8765)
these waters
<04325>_;
there shall not be from thence any more death
<04194>
or barren
<07921> (8764)
[land].
So the waters
<04325>
were healed
<07495> (8735)
unto this day
<03117>_,
according to the saying
<01697>
of Elisha
<0477>
which he spake
<01696> (8765)_.
And he went up
<05927> (8799)
from thence unto Bethel
<01008>_:
and as he was going up
<05927> (8802)
by the way
<01870>_,
there came forth
<03318> (8804)
little
<06996>
children
<05288>
out of the city
<05892>_,
and mocked
<07046> (8691)
him, and said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, Go up
<05927> (8798)_,
thou bald head
<07142>_;
go up
<05927> (8798)_,
thou bald head
<07142>_.
And he turned
<06437> (8799)
back
<0310>_,
and looked
<07200> (8799)
on them, and cursed
<07043> (8762)
them in the name
<08034>
of the LORD
<03068>_.
And there came forth
<03318> (8799)
two
<08147>
she bears
<01677>
out of the wood
<03293>_,
and tare
<01234> (8762)
forty
<0705>
and two
<08147>
children
<03206>
of them.
And he went
<03212> (8799)
from thence to mount
<02022>
Carmel
<03760>_,
and from thence he returned
<07725> (8804)
to Samaria
<08111>_.
