2 Kings 2:19-22

Context
Elisha Demonstrates His Authority

2:19 The men of the city said to Elisha, “Look, the city has a good location, as our 1  master can see. But the water is bad and the land doesn’t produce crops.” 2  2:20 Elisha 3  said, “Get me a new jar and put some salt in it.” So they got it. 2:21 He went out to the spring and threw the salt in. Then he said, “This is what the Lord says, ‘I have purified 4  this water. It will no longer cause death or fail to produce crops.” 5  2:22 The water has been pure to this very day, just as Elisha prophesied. 6
