You know that your servant was a loyal follower of the Lord. 3  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. 4  Get as many as you can. 5  4:4 Go and close the door behind you and your sons. Pour the olive oil into all the containers; 6  set aside each one when you have filled it.”
