NASB ©

The officer assisting the king said to the man of God, "That couldn’t happen even if the LORD opened the windows of heaven!" But Elisha replied, "You will see it happen, but you won’t be able to eat any of it!"

MSG ©

The attendant on whom the king leaned for support said to the Holy Man, "You expect us to believe that? Trapdoors opening in the sky and food tumbling out?" "You'll watch it with your own eyes," he said, "but [you] will not eat so much as a mouthful!"

BBE ©

Then the captain whose arm was supporting the king said to the man of God, Even if the Lord made windows in heaven, would such a thing be possible? And he said, Your eyes will see it, but you will not have a taste of the food.

NRSV ©

Then the captain on whose hand the king leaned said to the man of God, "Even if the LORD were to make windows in the sky, could such a thing happen?" But he said, "You shall see it with your own eyes, but you shall not eat from it."

NKJV ©

So an officer on whose hand the king leaned answered the man of God and said, "Look, if the LORD would make windows in heaven, could this thing be?" And he said, "In fact, you shall see it with your eyes, but you shall not eat of it."

An officer who was the king’s right-hand man 1  responded to the prophet, 2  “Look, even if the Lord made it rain by opening holes in the sky, could this happen so soon?” 3  Elisha 4  said, “Look, you will see it happen with your own eyes, but you will not eat any of the food!” 5 

NET © Notes

tn Heb “the officer on whose hand the king leans.”

tn Heb “man of God.”

tn Heb “the Lord was making holes in the sky, could this thing be?” Opening holes in the sky would allow the waters stored up there to pour to the earth and assure a good crop. But, the officer argues, even if this were to happen, it would take a long time to grow and harvest the crop.

tn Heb “he”; the referent (Elisha) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

tn Heb “you will not eat from there.”
