2 Kings 13:14

Context
Elisha Makes One Final Prophecy

13:14 Now Elisha had a terminal illness. 1  King Joash of Israel went down to visit him. 2  He wept before him and said, “My father, my father! The chariot 3  and horsemen of Israel!” 4 

1 tn Heb “Now Elisha was ill with the illness by which he would die.”

2 tn Heb “went down to him.”

3 tn Though the noun is singular here, it may be collective, in which case it could be translated “chariots.”

4 sn By comparing Elisha to a one-man army, the king emphasizes the power of the prophetic word. See the note at 2:12.
