2 Kings 6:1-7

Elisha Makes an Ax Head Float

6:1 Some of the prophets 1  said to Elisha, “Look, the place where we meet with you 2  is too cramped 3  for us. 6:2 Let’s go to the Jordan. Each of us will get a log from there and we will build a meeting place for ourselves there.” He said, “Go.” 6:3 One of them said, “Please come along with your servants.” He replied, “All right, I’ll come.” 6:4 So he went with them. When they arrived at the Jordan, they started cutting down trees. 6:5 As one of them was felling a log, the ax head 4  dropped into the water. He shouted, “Oh no, 5  my master! It was borrowed!” 6:6 The prophet 6  asked, “Where did it drop in?” When he showed him the spot, Elisha 7  cut off a branch, threw it in at that spot, and made the ax head float. 6:7 He said, “Lift it out.” So he reached out his hand and grabbed it.
