And Gehazi° said°, “My lord°, O king°, this° is the woman° and this° is her son°, whom° Elisha° restored° to life°.” 6 When the king° asked° the woman°, she related° [it] to him. So the king° appointed° for her a certain° officer°, saying°, “Restore° all° that was hers and all° the produce° of the field° from the day° that she left° the land° even until° now°.”

Hazael, being sent with a present by Ben-hadad to Elisha at Damascus, after he had heard the prophecy, killeth his master, and succeedeth him.
7 ¶ And Elishaº cameºª to Damascus;º and Benhadadº the kingº of Syriaº was sick;ºª and it was toldºª him, saying,ºª The manº of Godº is comeºª hither.º² 8 And the kingº saidºª unto² Hazael,º Takeºª a presentº in thine hand,º and go,¹ª² meet¹ª² the manº of God,º and enquireºª² of the LORDº by²² him, saying,ºª Shall I recoverºª of this disease?º²² 9 So Hazaelº went¹ª² to meet¹ª² him, and tookºª a presentº with² him,¹ even of every² good thingº of Damascus,º fortyº camels'º burden,º and cameºª and stoodºª beforeº him, and said,ºª Thy sonº Benhadadº kingº of Syriaº hath sentºª me to² thee, saying,ºª Shall I recoverºª of this disease?º²² 10 And Elishaº saidºª unto² him, Go,¹ª² sayºª unto him, Thou mayest certainly¹ª recover:ºª howbeit the LORDº hath shewedºª me that² he shall surely¹ª die.ºª 11 And he settledºª² his countenanceº stedfastly,ºª until² he was ashamed:ºª and the manº of Godº wept.ºª 12 And Hazaelº said,ºª Why² weepethºª my lord?º And he answered,ºª Because² I knowºª² the evilº that² thou wilt doºª unto the childrenº of Israel:º their strong holdsº wilt thou setºª on fire,º and their young menº wilt thou slayºª with the sword,º and wilt dashºª their children,º and rip upºª their women with child.º 13 And Hazaelº said,ºª But² what,² [is] thy servantº a dog,º that² he should doºª this² greatº thing?º And Elishaº answered,ºª The LORDº hath shewedºª me that thou [shalt be] kingº over² Syria.º 14 So he departed¹ª² from²² Elisha,º and cameºª to² his master;º who saidºª to him, What² saidºª Elishaº to thee?
