1 Now a certain° woman° of the wives° of athe sons° of the prophets° cried° out to IElisha°, “Your servant° my husband° is dead°, and you know° that your servant° feared° the LORD°; and bthe creditor° has come° to take° my two° children° to be his slaves°.” 2 Elisha° said° to her, “What° shall I do° for you? Tell° me, what° do you have° in the house°?” And she said°, “Your maidservant° has° nothing°° in the house° except°° aa jar° of oil°.” 3 Then he said°, “Go°, borrow° vessels° at large° for yourself from all° your neighbors°, [even] empty° vessels°; do not get° a few°. 4 And you shall go° in and shut° the door° behind° you and your sons°, and pour° out into all° these° vessels°, and you shall set° aside° what° is full°.” 5 So she went° from him and shut° the door° behind° her and her sons°; they were bringing° [the vessels] to her and she poured°. 6 When athe vessels° were full°, she said° to her son°, “Bring° me another° vessel°.” And he said° to her, “There° is not one° vessel° more°.” And the oil° stopped°. 7 Then she came° and told° athe man° of God°. And he said°, “Go°, sell° the oil° and pay° your debt°, and you [and] your sons° can live° on the rest°.”

The Shunammite Woman
8 ¶ Now there came° a day° when Elisha° passed° over° to aShunem°, where° there was a Iprominent° woman°, and she persuaded° him to eat° IIfood°. And so it was, as often° as he passed° by, he turned° in there° to eat° IIfood°. 9 She said° to her husband°, “Behold° now°, I perceive° that this° is a holy° aman° of God° passing° by us continually°. 10 Please°, let us amake° a little° walled° upper° chamber° and let us set° a bed° for him there°, and a table° and a chair° and a lampstand°; and it shall be, when he comes° to us, [that] he can turn° in there°.”
11 ¶ IOne day° he came° there° and turned° in to the upper° chamber° and IIrested°°. 12 Then he said° to aGehazi° his servant°, “Call° this° Shunammite°.” And when he had called° her, she stood° before° him. 13 He said° to him, “Say° now° to her, ‘Behold°, you have been° Icareful° for us with all° this° IIcare°; what° can I do° for you? Would° you be spoken° for to the king° or° to the captain° of the army°?’” And she IIIanswered°, “I live° among° my own people°.” 14 So he said°, “What° then is to be done° for her?” And Gehazi° Ianswered°, “Truly° she has° no° son° and her husband° is old°.” 15 He said°, “Call° her.” When he had called° her, she stood° in the doorway°. 16 Then he said°, “aAt this° season° Inext° year° you will embrace° a son°.” And she said°, “No°, my lord°, O man° of God°, bdo not lie° to your maidservant°.”

18 ¶ When the child° was grown°, the day° came° that he went° out to his father° to the reapers°. 19 He said° to his father°, “My head°, my head°.” And he said° to his servant°, “Carry° him to his mother°.” 20 When he had taken° him and brought° him to his mother°, he sat° on her Ilap° until° noon°, and [then] died°. 21 She went° up and alaid° him on the bed° of bthe man° of God°, and shut° [the door] behind° him and went° out. 22 Then she called° to her husband° and said°, “Please° send° me one° of the servants° and one° of the donkeys°, that I may run° to the man° of God° and return°.” 23 He said°, “Why° will you go° to him today°? It is neither° anew° moon° nor° sabbath°.” And she said°, “[It will be] well°.” 24 Then she saddled° a donkey° and said° to her servant°, “Drive° and go° forward; do not slow° down° Ithe pace° for me unless°° I tell° you.” 25 So she went° and came° to the man° of God° to aMount° Carmel°.
¶ When the man° of God° saw° her at a distance°°, he said° to Gehazi° his servant°, “Behold°, Ithere° is the Shunammite°. 26 Please° run° now° to meet° her and say° to her, ‘Is it well° with you?

And Gehazi° came° near° to push° her away°; but the man° of God° said°, “Let° her alone°, for her soul° is Itroubled° within her; and the LORD° has hidden° it from me and has not told° me.” 28 Then she said°, “Did I ask° for a son° from my lord°?

And he arose,ºª and followedº¹ª² her. 31 And Gehaziº passed onºª beforeº them, and laidºª² the staffº upon² the faceº of the child;º but [there was] neither² voice,º nor² hearing.º Wherefore he went againºª to meet¹ª² him, and toldºª him, saying,ºª The childº is not² awaked.ºª 32 And when Elishaº was comeºª into the house,º behold,² the childº was dead,ºª [and] laidºª upon² his bed.º 33 He went inºª therefore, and shutºª the doorº upon² them twain,º and prayedºª unto² the LORD.º 34 And he went up,ºª and layºª upon² the child,º and putºª his mouthº upon² his mouth,º and his eyesº upon² his eyes,º and his handsº upon² his hands:º and he stretchedºª himself upon² the child; and the fleshº of the childº waxed warm.ºª 35 Then he returned,ºª and walked¹ª² in the houseº to¹¹ and fro;ºº and went up,ºª and stretchedºª himself upon² him: and the childº sneezedºª² sevenº times,º and the childº openedºª² his eyes.º 36 And he calledºª² Gehazi,º and said,ºª Callºª² this² Shunammite.º So he calledºª her.
