2 Kings 3:11-13

Context
3:11 Jehoshaphat asked, “Is there no prophet of the Lord here that we might seek the Lord’s direction?” 1  One of the servants of the king of Israel answered, “Elisha son of Shapat is here; he used to be Elijah’s servant.” 2  3:12 Jehoshaphat said, “The Lord speaks through him.” 3  So the king of Israel and Jehoshaphat and the king of Edom went down to visit him.

3:13 Elisha said to the king of Israel, “Why are you here? 4  Go to your father’s prophets or your mother’s prophets!” The king of Israel replied to him, “No, for the Lord is the one who summoned these three kings so that he can hand them over to Moab.”

1 tn Heb “that we might inquire of the Lord through him?”

2 tn Heb “who poured water on the hands of Elijah.” This refers to one of the typical tasks of a servant.

3 tn Heb “the word of the Lord is with him.”

4 tn Or “What do we have in common?” The text reads literally, “What to me and to you?”
