2 Kings 7:1-20

Then Elisha
<0477>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
Hear
<08085> (8798)
ye the word
<01697>
of the LORD
<03068>_;
Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>_,
To morrow
<04279>
about this time
<06256>
[shall] a measure
<05429>
of fine flour
<05560>
[be sold] for a shekel
<08255>_,
and two measures
<05429>
of barley
<08184>
for a shekel
<08255>_,
in the gate
<08179>
of Samaria
<08111>_.
Then a lord
<07991>
on whose hand
<03027>
the king
<04428>
leaned
<08172> (8737)
answered
<06030> (8799)
the man
<0376>
of God
<0430>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
Behold, [if] the LORD
<03068>
would make
<06213> (8802)
windows
<0699>
in heaven
<08064>_,
might this thing
<01697>
be? And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
Behold, thou shalt see
<07200> (8802)
[it] with thine eyes
<05869>_,
but shalt not eat
<0398> (8799)
thereof. {a lord...: Heb. a lord which belonged to the king leaning upon his hand}
And there were four
<0702>
leprous
<06879> (8794)
men
<0582>
at the entering in
<06607>
of the gate
<08179>_:
and they said
<0559> (8799)
one
<0376>
to another
<07453>_,
Why sit
<03427> (8802)
we here until we die
<04191> (8804)_?
If we say
<0559> (8804)_,
We will enter
<0935> (8799)
into the city
<05892>_,
then the famine
<07458>
[is] in the city
<05892>_,
and we shall die
<04191> (8804)
there: and if we sit still
<03427> (8804)
here, we die
<04191> (8804)
also. Now therefore come
<03212> (8798)_,
and let us fall
<05307> (8799)
unto the host
<04264>
of the Syrians
<0758>_:
if they save us alive
<02421> (8762)_,
we shall live
<02421> (8799)_;
and if they kill
<04191> (8686)
us, we shall but die
<04191> (8804)_.
And they rose up
<06965> (8799)
in the twilight
<05399>_,
to go
<0935> (8800)
unto the camp
<04264>
of the Syrians
<0758>_:
and when they were come
<0935> (8799)
to the uttermost part
<07097>
of the camp
<04264>
of Syria
<0758>_,
behold, [there was] no man
<0376>
there.
For the Lord
<0136>
had made the host
<04264>
of the Syrians
<0758>
to hear
<08085> (8689)
a noise
<06963>
of chariots
<07393>_,
and a noise
<06963>
of horses
<05483>_,
[even] the noise
<06963>
of a great
<01419>
host
<02428>_:
and they said
<0559> (8799)
one
<0376>
to another
<0251>_,
Lo, the king
<04428>
of Israel
<03478>
hath hired
<07936> (8804)
against us the kings
<04428>
of the Hittites
<02850>_,
and the kings
<04428>
of the Egyptians
<04714>_,
to come
<0935> (8800)
upon us.
Wherefore they arose
<06965> (8799)
and fled
<05127> (8799)
in the twilight
<05399>_,
and left
<05800> (8799)
their tents
<0168>_,
and their horses
<05483>_,
and their asses
<02543>_,
even the camp
<04264>
as it [was], and fled
<05127> (8799)
for their life
<05315>_.
And when these lepers
<06879> (8794)
came
<0935> (8799)
to the uttermost part
<07097>
of the camp
<04264>_,
they went
<0935> (8799)
into one
<0259>
tent
<0168>_,
and did eat
<0398> (8799)
and drink
<08354> (8799)_,
and carried
<05375> (8799)
thence silver
<03701>_,
and gold
<02091>_,
and raiment
<0899>_,
and went
<03212> (8799)
and hid
<02934> (8686)
[it]; and came again
<07725> (8799)_,
and entered
<0935> (8799)
into another
<0312>
tent
<0168>_,
and carried
<05375> (8799)
thence [also], and went
<03212> (8799)
and hid
<02934> (8686)
[it].
Then they said
<0559> (8799)
one
<0376>
to another
<07453>_,
We do
<06213> (8802)
not well: this day
<03117>
[is] a day
<03117>
of good tidings
<01309>_,
and we hold our peace
<02814> (8688)_:
if we tarry
<02442> (8765)
till the morning
<01242>
light
<0216>_,
some mischief
<05771>
will come
<04672> (8804)
upon us: now therefore come
<03212> (8798)_,
that we may go
<0935> (8799)
and tell
<05046> (8686)
the king's
<04428>
household
<01004>_.
{some...: Heb. we shall find punishment}
So they came
<0935> (8799)
and called
<07121> (8799)
unto the porter
<07778>
of the city
<05892>_:
and they told
<05046> (8686)
them, saying
<0559> (8800)_,
We came
<0935> (8804)
to the camp
<04264>
of the Syrians
<0758>_,
and, behold, [there was] no man
<0376>
there, neither voice
<06963>
of man
<0120>_,
but horses
<05483>
tied
<0631> (8803)_,
and asses
<02543>
tied
<0631> (8803)_,
and the tents
<0168>
as they [were].
And he called
<07121> (8799)
the porters
<07778>_;
and they told
<05046> (8686)
[it] to the king's
<04428>
house
<01004>
within
<06441>_.
And the king
<04428>
arose
<06965> (8799)
in the night
<03915>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)
unto his servants
<05650>_,
I will now shew
<05046> (8686)
you what the Syrians
<0758>
have done
<06213> (8804)
to us. They know
<03045> (8804)
that we [be] hungry
<07457>_;
therefore are they gone out
<03318> (8799)
of the camp
<04264>
to hide
<02247> (8736)
themselves in the field
<07704>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
When they come out
<03318> (8799)
of the city
<05892>_,
we shall catch
<08610> (8799)
them alive
<02416>_,
and get
<0935> (8799)
into the city
<05892>_.
And one
<0259>
of his servants
<05650>
answered
<06030> (8799)
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
Let [some] take
<03947> (8799)_,
I pray thee, five
<02568>
of the horses
<05483>
that remain
<07604> (8737)_,
which are left
<07604> (8738)
in the city, (behold, they [are] as all the multitude
<01995>
of Israel
<03478>
that are left
<07604> (8738)
in it: behold, [I say], they [are] even as all the multitude
<01995>
of the Israelites
<03478>
that are consumed
<08552> (8804):)
and let us send
<07971> (8799)
and see
<07200> (8799)_.
{in the city: Heb. in it}
They took
<03947> (8799)
therefore two
<08147>
chariot
<07393>
horses
<05483>_;
and the king
<04428>
sent
<07971> (8799)
after
<0310>
the host
<04264>
of the Syrians
<0758>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Go
<03212> (8798)
and see
<07200> (8798)_.
And they went
<03212> (8799)
after
<0310>
them unto Jordan
<03383>_:
and, lo, all the way
<01870>
[was] full
<04392>
of garments
<0899>
and vessels
<03627>_,
which the Syrians
<0758>
had cast away
<07993> (8689)
in their haste
<02648> (8800)_.
And the messengers
<04397>
returned
<07725> (8799)_,
and told
<05046> (8686)
the king
<04428>_.
And the people
<05971>
went out
<03318> (8799)_,
and spoiled
<0962> (8799)
the tents
<04264>
of the Syrians
<0758>_.
So a measure
<05429>
of fine flour
<05560>
was [sold] for a shekel
<08255>_,
and two measures
<05429>
of barley
<08184>
for a shekel
<08255>_,
according to the word
<01697>
of the LORD
<03068>_.
And the king
<04428>
appointed
<06485> (8689)
the lord
<07991>
on whose hand
<03027>
he leaned
<08172> (8737)
to have the charge of the gate
<08179>_:
and the people
<05971>
trode
<07429> (8799)
upon him in the gate
<08179>_,
and he died
<04191> (8799)_,
as the man
<0376>
of God
<0430>
had said
<01696> (8765)_,
who spake
<01696> (8765)
when the king
<04428>
came down
<03381> (8800)
to him.
And it came to pass as the man
<0376>
of God
<0430>
had spoken
<01696> (8763)
to the king
<04428>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Two measures
<05429>
of barley
<08184>
for a shekel
<08255>_,
and a measure
<05429>
of fine flour
<05560>
for a shekel
<08255>_,
shall be to morrow
<04279>
about this time
<06256>
in the gate
<08179>
of Samaria
<08111>_:
And that lord
<07991>
answered
<06030> (8799)
the man
<0376>
of God
<0430>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
Now, behold, [if] the LORD
<03068>
should make
<06213> (8802)
windows
<0699>
in heaven
<08064>_,
might such a thing
<01697>
be? And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
Behold, thou shalt see
<07200> (8802)
it with thine eyes
<05869>_,
but shalt not eat
<0398> (8799)
thereof.
And so it fell out unto him: for the people
<05971>
trode
<07429> (8799)
upon him in the gate
<08179>_,
and he died
<04191> (8799)_.
