2 Kings 2:15


2:15 When the members of the prophetic guild in Jericho, 1  who were standing at a distance, 2  saw him do this, they said, “The spirit that energized Elijah 3  rests upon Elisha.” They went to meet him and bowed down to the ground before him.

2 Kings 9:11


9:11 When Jehu rejoined 4  his master’s servants, they 5  asked him, “Is everything all right? 6  Why did this madman visit you?” He replied, “Ah, it’s not important. You know what kind of man he is and the kinds of things he says.” 7

2 tn Heb “and the sons of the prophets who were in Jericho, [who were standing] opposite, saw him and said.”

3 tn Heb “the spirit of Elijah.”

4 tn Heb “went out to.”

5 tc The MT has the singular, “he said,” but many witnesses correctly read the plural.

6 tn Heb “Is there peace?”

7 tn Heb “He said, ‘You, you know the man and his thoughts.’” Jehu tries to deflect their question by reminding them that the man is an eccentric individual who says strange things. His reply suggests that the man said nothing of importance. The translation seeks to bring out the tone and intent of Jehu’s reply.
