2 Kings 4:32-37

Context
4:32 When Elisha arrived at the house, there was 1  the child lying dead on his bed. 4:33 He went in by himself and closed the door. 2  Then he prayed to the Lord. 4:34 He got up on the bed and spread his body out over 3  the boy; he put his mouth on the boy’s 4  mouth, his eyes over the boy’s eyes, and the palms of his hands against the boy’s palms. He bent down over him, and the boy’s skin 5  grew warm. 4:35 Elisha 6  went back and walked around in the house. 7  Then he got up on the bed again 8  and bent down over him. The child sneezed seven times and opened his eyes. 4:36 Elisha 9  called to Gehazi and said, “Get the Shunammite woman.” So he did so 10  and she came to him. He said to her, “Take your son.” 4:37 She came in, fell at his feet, and bowed down. Then she picked up her son and left.
