2 Kings 4


1  Now there cried6817 a certain259 woman802 of the wives4480 802 of the sons1121 of the prophets5030 unto413 Elisha,477 saying,559 Thy servant5650 my husband376 is dead;4191 and thou859 knowest3045 that3588 thy servant5650 did1961 fear3372 853 the LORD:3068 and the creditor5383 is come935 to take3947 unto him 853 my two8147 sons3206 to be bondmen.5650

2  And Elisha477 said559 unto413 her, What4100 shall I do6213 for thee? tell5046 me, what4100 hast3426 thou in the house?1004 And she said,559 Thine handmaid8198 hath not369 any thing3605 in the house,1004 save3588 518 a pot610 of oil.8081

3  Then he said,559 Go,1980 borrow7592 thee vessels3627 abroad4480 2351 of4480 854 all3605 thy neighbors,7934 even empty7386 vessels;3627 borrow not a few.408 4591

4  And when thou art come in,935 thou shalt shut5462 the door1817 upon1157 thee and upon1157 thy sons,1121 and shalt pour out3332 into5921 all3605 those428 vessels,3627 and thou shalt set aside5265 that which is full.4392

5  So she went1980 from4480 854 him, and shut5462 the door1817 upon1157 her and upon1157 her sons,1121 who1992 brought5066 the vessels to413 her; and she1931 poured out.3332

6  And it came to pass,1961 when the vessels3627 were full,4390 that she said559 unto413 her son,1121 Bring5066 413 me yet5750 a vessel.3627 And he said559 unto413 her, There is not369 a vessel3627 more.5750 And the oil8081 stayed.5975

7  Then she came935 and told5046 the man376 of God.430 And he said,559 Go,1980 sell4376 853 the oil,8081 and pay7999 853 thy debt,5386 and live2421 thou859 and thy children1121 of the rest.3498

8  And it fell1961 on a day,3117 that Elisha477 passed5674 to413 Shunem,7766 where8033 was a great1419 woman;802 and she constrained2388 him to eat398 bread.3899 And so it was,1961 that as oft4480 1767 as he passed by,5674 he turned in5493 thither8033 to eat398 bread.3899

9  And she said559 unto413 her husband,376 Behold2009 now,4994 I perceive3045 that3588 this1931 is a holy6918 man376 of God,430 which passeth by5674 5921 us continually.8548

10  Let us make6213 a little6996 chamber,5944 I pray thee,4994 on the wall;7023 and let us set7760 for him there8033 a bed,4296 and a table,7979 and a stool,3678 and a candlestick:4501 and it shall be,1961 when he cometh935 to413 us, that he shall turn in5493 thither.8033

11  And it fell1961 on a day,3117 that he came935 thither,8033 and he turned5493 into413 the chamber,5944 and lay7901 there.8033

12  And he said559 to413 Gehazi1522 his servant,5288 Call7121 this2063 Shunammite.7767 And when he had called7121 her, she stood5975 before6440 him.

13  And he said559 unto him, Say559 now4994 unto413 her, Behold,2009 thou hast been careful2729 for413 us with854 all3605 this2063 care;2731 what4100 is to be done6213 for thee? wouldest3426 thou be spoken1696 for to413 the king,4428 or176 to413 the captain8269 of the host?6635 And she answered,559 I595 dwell3427 among8432 mine own people.5971

14  And he said,559 What4100 then is to be done6213 for her? And Gehazi1522 answered,559 Verily61 she hath no369 child,1121 and her husband376 is old.2204

15  And he said,559 Call7121 her. And when he had called7121 her, she stood5975 in the door.6607

16  And he said,559 About this2088 season,4150 according to the time6256 of life,2416 thou859 shalt embrace2263 a son.1121 And she said,559 Nay,408 my lord,113 thou man376 of God,430 do not lie3576 408 unto thine handmaid.8198

17  And the woman802 conceived,2029 and bore3205 a son1121 at that2088 season4150 that834 Elisha477 had said1696 unto413 her, according to the time6256 of life.2416

18  And when the child3206 was grown,1431 it fell1961 on a day,3117 that he went out3318 to413 his father1 to413 the reapers.7114

19  And he said559 unto413 his father,1 My head,7218 my head.7218 And he said559 to413 a lad,5288 Carry5375 him to413 his mother.517

20  And when he had taken5375 him, and brought935 him to413 his mother,517 he sat3427 on5921 her knees1290 till5704 noon,6672 and then died.4191

21  And she went up,5927 and laid7901 him on5921 the bed4296 of the man376 of God,430 and shut5462 the door upon1157 him, and went out.3318

22  And she called7121 unto413 her husband,376 and said,559 Send7971 me, I pray thee,4994 one259 of4480 the young men,5288 and one259 of the asses,860 that I may run7323 to5704 the man376 of God,430 and come again.7725

23  And he said,559 Wherefore4069 wilt thou859 go1980 to413 him today?3117 it is neither3808 new moon,2320 nor3808 sabbath.7676 And she said,559 It shall be well.7965

24  Then she saddled2280 an ass,860 and said559 to413 her servant,5288 Drive,5090 and go forward;1980 slack6113 not408 thy riding7392 for me, except3588 518 I bid559 thee.

25  So she went1980 and came935 unto413 the man376 of God430 to413 mount2022 Carmel.3760 And it came to pass,1961 when the man376 of God430 saw7200 her afar off,4480 5048 that he said559 to413 Gehazi1522 his servant,5288 Behold,2009 yonder is that1975 Shunammite:7767

26  Run7323 now,6258 I pray thee,4994 to meet7122 her, and say559 unto her, Is it well7965 with thee? is it well7965 with thy husband?376 is it well7965 with the child?3206 And she answered,559 It is well.7965

27  And when she came935 to413 the man376 of God430 to413 the hill,2022 she caught2388 him by the feet:7272 but Gehazi1522 came near5066 to thrust her away.1920 And the man376 of God430 said,559 Let her alone;7503 for3588 her soul5315 is vexed4843 within her: and the LORD3068 hath hid5956 it from4480 me, and hath not3808 told5046 me.

28  Then she said,559 Did I desire7592 a son1121 of4480 854 my lord?113 did I not3808 say,559 Do not3808 deceive7952 me?

29  Then he said559 to Gehazi,1522 Gird up2296 thy loins,4975 and take3947 my staff4938 in thine hand,3027 and go thy way:1980 if3588 thou meet4672 any man,376 salute1288 him not;3808 and if3588 any376 salute1288 thee, answer6030 him not3808 again: and lay7760 my staff4938 upon5921 the face6440 of the child.5288

30  And the mother517 of the child5288 said,559 As the LORD3068 liveth,2416 and as thy soul5315 liveth,2416 I will not518 leave5800 thee. And he arose,6965 and followed1980 310 her.

31  And Gehazi1522 passed on5674 before6440 them, and laid7760 853 the staff4938 upon5921 the face6440 of the child;5288 but there was neither369 voice,6963 nor369 hearing.7182 Wherefore he went again7725 to meet7122 him, and told5046 him, saying,559 The child5288 is not3808 awaked.6974

32  And when Elisha477 was come935 into the house,1004 behold,2009 the child5288 was dead,4191 and laid7901 upon5921 his bed.4296

33  He went in935 therefore, and shut5462 the door1817 upon1157 them twain,8147 and prayed6419 unto413 the LORD.3068

34  And he went up,5927 and lay7901 upon5921 the child,3206 and put7760 his mouth6310 upon5921 his mouth,6310 and his eyes5869 upon5921 his eyes,5869 and his hands3709 upon5921 his hands:3709 and he stretched1457 himself upon5921 the child; and the flesh1320 of the child3206 waxed warm.2552

35  Then he returned,7725 and walked1980 in the house1004 to and fro;259 2008 259 2008 and went up,5927 and stretched1457 himself upon5921 him: and the child5288 sneezed2237 5704 seven7651 times,6471 and the child5288 opened6491 853 his eyes.5869

36  And he called7121 413 Gehazi,1522 and said,559 Call7121 413 this2063 Shunammite.7767 So he called7121 her. And when she was come935 in unto413 him, he said,559 Take up5375 thy son.1121

37  Then she went in,935 and fell5307 at5921 his feet,7272 and bowed herself7812 to the ground,776 and took up5375 853 her son,1121 and went out.3318

38  And Elisha477 came again7725 to Gilgal:1537 and there was a dearth7458 in the land;776 and the sons1121 of the prophets5030 were sitting3427 before6440 him: and he said559 unto his servant,5288 Set on8239 the great1419 pot,5518 and seethe1310 pottage5138 for the sons1121 of the prophets.5030

39  And one259 went out3318 into413 the field7704 to gather3950 herbs,219 and found4672 a wild7704 vine,1612 and gathered3950 thereof4480 wild7704 gourds6498 his lap899 full,4393 and came935 and shred6398 them into413 the pot5518 of pottage:5138 for3588 they knew3045 them not.3808

40  So they poured out3332 for the men376 to eat.398 And it came to pass,1961 as they were eating398 of the pottage,4480 5138 that they1992 cried out,6817 and said,559 O thou man376 of God,430 there is death4194 in the pot.5518 And they could3201 not3808 eat398 thereof.

41  But he said,559 Then bring3947 meal.7058 And he cast7993 it into413 the pot;5518 and he said,559 Pour out3332 for the people,5971 that they may eat.398 And there was1961 no3808 harm1697 7451 in the pot.5518

42  And there came935 a man376 from Baal-shalisha,4480 1190 and brought935 the man376 of God430 bread3899 of the firstfruits,1061 twenty6242 loaves3899 of barley,8184 and full ears of corn3759 in the husk6861 thereof. And he said,559 Give5414 unto the people,5971 that they may eat.398

43  And his servitor8334 said,559 What,4100 should I set5414 this2088 before6440 a hundred3967 men?376 He said559 again, Give5414 the people,5971 that they may eat:398 for3588 thus3541 saith559 the LORD,3068 They shall eat,398 and shall leave3498 thereof.

44  So he set5414 it before6440 them, and they did eat,398 and left3498 thereof, according to the word1697 of the LORD.3068


1 καὶ γυνὴ μία ἀπὸ τῶν υἱῶν τῶν προφητῶν ἐβόα πρὸς Ελισαιε λέγουσα ὁ δοῦλός σου ὁ ἀνήρ μου ἀπέθανεν καὶ σὺ ἔγνως ὅτι δοῦλος ἦν φοβούμενος τὸν κύριον καὶ ὁ δανιστὴς ἦλθεν λαβεῖν τοὺς δύο υἱούς μου ἑαυτῷ εἰς δούλους

2 καὶ εἶπεν Ελισαιε τί ποιήσω σοι ἀνάγγειλόν μοι τί ἐστίν σοι ἐν τῷ οἴκῳ ἡ δὲ εἶπεν οὐκ ἔστιν τῇ δούλῃ σου οὐθὲν ἐν τῷ οἴκῳ ὅτι ἀλλ᾽ ἢ ὃ ἀλείψομαι ἔλαιον

3 καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς αὐτήν δεῦρο αἴτησον σαυτῇ σκεύη ἔξωθεν παρὰ πάντων τῶν γειτόνων σου σκεύη κενά μὴ ὀλιγώσῃς

4 καὶ εἰσελεύσῃ καὶ ἀποκλείσεις τὴν θύραν κατὰ σοῦ καὶ κατὰ τῶν υἱῶν σου καὶ ἀποχεεῖς εἰς τὰ σκεύη ταῦτα καὶ τὸ πληρωθὲν ἀρεῖς

5 καὶ ἀπῆλθεν παρ᾽ αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐποίησεν οὕτως καὶ ἀπέκλεισεν τὴν θύραν κατ᾽ αὐτῆς καὶ κατὰ τῶν υἱῶν αὐτῆς αὐτοὶ προσήγγιζον πρὸς αὐτήν καὶ αὐτὴ ἐπέχεεν

6 ἕως ἐπλήσθησαν τὰ σκεύη καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς τοὺς υἱοὺς αὐτῆς ἐγγίσατε ἔτι πρός με σκεῦος καὶ εἶπον αὐτῇ οὐκ ἔστιν ἔτι σκεῦος καὶ ἔστη τὸ ἔλαιον

7 καὶ ἦλθεν καὶ ἀπήγγειλεν τῷ ἀνθρώπῳ τοῦ θεοῦ καὶ εἶπεν Ελισαιε δεῦρο καὶ ἀπόδου τὸ ἔλαιον καὶ ἀποτείσεις τοὺς τόκους σου καὶ σὺ καὶ οἱ υἱοί σου ζήσεσθε ἐν τῷ ἐπιλοίπῳ ἐλαίῳ

8 καὶ ἐγένετο ἡμέρα καὶ διέβη Ελισαιε εἰς Σουμαν καὶ ἐκεῖ γυνὴ μεγάλη καὶ ἐκράτησεν αὐτὸν φαγεῖν ἄρτον καὶ ἐγένετο ἀφ᾽ ἱκανοῦ τοῦ εἰσπορεύεσθαι αὐτὸν ἐξέκλινεν τοῦ ἐκεῖ φαγεῖν

9 καὶ εἶπεν ἡ γυνὴ πρὸς τὸν ἄνδρα αὐτῆς ἰδοὺ δὴ ἔγνων ὅτι ἄνθρωπος τοῦ θεοῦ ἅγιος οὗτος διαπορεύεται ἐφ᾽ ἡμᾶς διὰ παντός

10 ποιήσωμεν δὴ αὐτῷ ὑπερῷον τόπον μικρὸν καὶ θῶμεν αὐτῷ ἐκεῖ κλίνην καὶ τράπεζαν καὶ δίφρον καὶ λυχνίαν καὶ ἔσται ἐν τῷ εἰσπορεύεσθαι πρὸς ἡμᾶς καὶ ἐκκλινεῖ ἐκεῖ

11 καὶ ἐγένετο ἡμέρα καὶ εἰσῆλθεν ἐκεῖ καὶ ἐξέκλινεν εἰς τὸ ὑπερῷον καὶ ἐκοιμήθη ἐκεῖ

12 καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς Γιεζι τὸ παιδάριον αὐτοῦ κάλεσόν μοι τὴν Σωμανῖτιν ταύτην καὶ ἐκάλεσεν αὐτήν καὶ ἔστη ἐνώπιον αὐτοῦ

13 καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ εἰπὸν δὴ πρὸς αὐτήν ἰδοὺ ἐξέστησας ἡμῖν πᾶσαν τὴν ἔκστασιν ταύτην τί δεῖ ποιῆσαί σοι εἰ ἔστιν λόγος σοι πρὸς τὸν βασιλέα ἢ πρὸς τὸν ἄρχοντα τῆς δυνάμεως ἡ δὲ εἶπεν ἐν μέσῳ τοῦ λαοῦ μου ἐγώ εἰμι οἰκῶ

14 καὶ εἶπεν τί δεῖ ποιῆσαι αὐτῇ καὶ εἶπεν Γιεζι τὸ παιδάριον αὐτοῦ καὶ μάλα υἱὸς οὐκ ἔστιν αὐτῇ καὶ ὁ ἀνὴρ αὐτῆς πρεσβύτης

15 καὶ ἐκάλεσεν αὐτήν καὶ ἔστη παρὰ τὴν θύραν

16 καὶ εἶπεν Ελισαιε πρὸς αὐτήν εἰς τὸν καιρὸν τοῦτον ὡς ἡ ὥρα ζῶσα σὺ περιειληφυῖα υἱόν ἡ δὲ εἶπεν μή κύριέ μου μὴ διαψεύσῃ τὴν δούλην σου

17 καὶ ἐν γαστρὶ ἔλαβεν ἡ γυνὴ καὶ ἔτεκεν υἱὸν εἰς τὸν καιρὸν τοῦτον ὡς ἡ ὥρα ζῶσα ὡς ἐλάλησεν πρὸς αὐτὴν Ελισαιε

18 καὶ ἡδρύνθη τὸ παιδάριον καὶ ἐγένετο ἡνίκα ἐξῆλθεν τὸ παιδάριον πρὸς τὸν πατέρα αὐτοῦ πρὸς τοὺς θερίζοντας

19 καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς τὸν πατέρα αὐτοῦ τὴν κεφαλήν μου τὴν κεφαλήν μου καὶ εἶπεν τῷ παιδαρίῳ ἆρον αὐτὸν πρὸς τὴν μητέρα αὐτοῦ

20 καὶ ἦρεν αὐτὸν πρὸς τὴν μητέρα αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐκοιμήθη ἐπὶ τῶν γονάτων αὐτῆς ἕως μεσημβρίας καὶ ἀπέθανεν

21 καὶ ἀνήνεγκεν αὐτὸν καὶ ἐκοίμισεν αὐτὸν ἐπὶ τὴν κλίνην τοῦ ἀνθρώπου τοῦ θεοῦ καὶ ἀπέκλεισεν κατ᾽ αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐξῆλθεν

22 καὶ ἐκάλεσεν τὸν ἄνδρα αὐτῆς καὶ εἶπεν ἀπόστειλον δή μοι ἓν τῶν παιδαρίων καὶ μίαν τῶν ὄνων καὶ δραμοῦμαι ἕως τοῦ ἀνθρώπου τοῦ θεοῦ καὶ ἐπιστρέψω

23 καὶ εἶπεν τί ὅτι σὺ πορεύῃ πρὸς αὐτὸν σήμερον οὐ νεομηνία οὐδὲ σάββατον ἡ δὲ εἶπεν εἰρήνη

24 καὶ ἐπέσαξεν τὴν ὄνον καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς τὸ παιδάριον αὐτῆς ἄγε πορεύου μὴ ἐπίσχῃς μοι τοῦ ἐπιβῆναι ὅτι ἐὰν εἴπω σοι

25 δεῦρο καὶ πορεύσῃ καὶ ἐλεύσῃ πρὸς τὸν ἄνθρωπον τοῦ θεοῦ εἰς τὸ ὄρος τὸ Καρμήλιον καὶ ἐγένετο ὡς εἶδεν Ελισαιε ἐρχομένην αὐτήν καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς Γιεζι τὸ παιδάριον αὐτοῦ ἰδοὺ δὴ ἡ Σωμανῖτις ἐκείνη

26 νῦν δράμε εἰς ἀπαντὴν αὐτῆς καὶ ἐρεῖς εἰ εἰρήνη σοι εἰ εἰρήνη τῷ ἀνδρί σου εἰ εἰρήνη τῷ παιδαρίῳ ἡ δὲ εἶπεν Εἰρήνη

27 καὶ ἦλθεν πρὸς Ελισαιε εἰς τὸ ὄρος καὶ ἐπελάβετο τῶν ποδῶν αὐτοῦ καὶ ἤγγισεν Γιεζι ἀπώσασθαι αὐτήν καὶ εἶπεν Ελισαιε ἄφες αὐτήν ὅτι ἡ ψυχὴ αὐτῆς κατώδυνος αὐτῇ καὶ κύριος ἀπέκρυψεν ἀπ᾽ ἐμοῦ καὶ οὐκ ἀνήγγειλέν μοι

28 ἡ δὲ εἶπεν μὴ ᾐτησάμην υἱὸν παρὰ τοῦ κυρίου μου οὐκ εἶπα οὐ πλανήσεις μετ᾽ ἐμοῦ

29 καὶ εἶπεν Ελισαιε τῷ Γιεζι ζῶσαι τὴν ὀσφύν σου καὶ λαβὲ τὴν βακτηρίαν μου ἐν τῇ χειρί σου καὶ δεῦρο ὅτι ἐὰν εὕρῃς ἄνδρα οὐκ εὐλογήσεις αὐτόν καὶ ἐὰν εὐλογήσῃ σε ἀνήρ οὐκ ἀποκριθήσῃ αὐτῷ καὶ ἐπιθήσεις τὴν βακτηρίαν μου ἐπὶ πρόσωπον τοῦ παιδαρίου

30 καὶ εἶπεν ἡ μήτηρ τοῦ παιδαρίου ζῇ κύριος καὶ ζῇ ἡ ψυχή σου εἰ ἐγκαταλείψω σε καὶ ἀνέστη Ελισαιε καὶ ἐπορεύθη ὀπίσω αὐτῆς

31 καὶ Γιεζι διῆλθεν ἔμπροσθεν αὐτῆς καὶ ἐπέθηκεν τὴν βακτηρίαν ἐπὶ πρόσωπον τοῦ παιδαρίου καὶ οὐκ ἦν φωνὴ καὶ οὐκ ἦν ἀκρόασις καὶ ἐπέστρεψεν εἰς ἀπαντὴν αὐτοῦ καὶ ἀπήγγειλεν αὐτῷ λέγων οὐκ ἠγέρθη τὸ παιδάριον

32 καὶ εἰσῆλθεν Ελισαιε εἰς τὸν οἶκον καὶ ἰδοὺ τὸ παιδάριον τεθνηκὸς κεκοιμισμένον ἐπὶ τὴν κλίνην αὐτοῦ

33 καὶ εἰσῆλθεν Ελισαιε εἰς τὸν οἶκον καὶ ἀπέκλεισεν τὴν θύραν κατὰ τῶν δύο ἑαυτῶν καὶ προσηύξατο πρὸς κύριον

34 καὶ ἀνέβη καὶ ἐκοιμήθη ἐπὶ τὸ παιδάριον καὶ ἔθηκεν τὸ στόμα αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ τὸ στόμα αὐτοῦ καὶ τοὺς ὀφθαλμοὺς αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ τοὺς ὀφθαλμοὺς αὐτοῦ καὶ τὰς χεῖρας αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ τὰς χεῖρας αὐτοῦ καὶ διέκαμψεν ἐπ᾽ αὐτόν καὶ διεθερμάνθη ἡ σὰρξ τοῦ παιδαρίου

35 καὶ ἐπέστρεψεν καὶ ἐπορεύθη ἐν τῇ οἰκίᾳ ἔνθεν καὶ ἔνθεν καὶ ἀνέβη καὶ συνέκαμψεν ἐπὶ τὸ παιδάριον ἕως ἑπτάκις καὶ ἤνοιξεν τὸ παιδάριον τοὺς ὀφθαλμοὺς αὐτοῦ

36 καὶ ἐξεβόησεν Ελισαιε πρὸς Γιεζι καὶ εἶπεν κάλεσον τὴν Σωμανῖτιν ταύτην καὶ ἐκάλεσεν καὶ εἰσῆλθεν πρὸς αὐτόν καὶ εἶπεν Ελισαιε λαβὲ τὸν υἱόν σου

37 καὶ εἰσῆλθεν ἡ γυνὴ καὶ ἔπεσεν ἐπὶ τοὺς πόδας αὐτοῦ καὶ προσεκύνησεν ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν καὶ ἔλαβεν τὸν υἱὸν αὐτῆς καὶ ἐξῆλθεν

38 καὶ Ελισαιε ἐπέστρεψεν εἰς Γαλγαλα καὶ ὁ λιμὸς ἐν τῇ γῇ καὶ οἱ υἱοὶ τῶν προφητῶν ἐκάθηντο ἐνώπιον αὐτοῦ καὶ εἶπεν Ελισαιε τῷ παιδαρίῳ αὐτοῦ ἐπίστησον τὸν λέβητα τὸν μέγαν καὶ ἕψε ἕψεμα τοῖς υἱοῖς τῶν προφητῶν

39 καὶ ἐξῆλθεν εἷς εἰς τὸν ἀγρὸν συλλέξαι αριωθ καὶ εὗρεν ἄμπελον ἐν τῷ ἀγρῷ καὶ συνέλεξεν ἀπ᾽ αὐτῆς τολύπην ἀγρίαν πλῆρες τὸ ἱμάτιον αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐνέβαλεν εἰς τὸν λέβητα τοῦ ἑψέματος ὅτι οὐκ ἔγνωσαν

40 καὶ ἐνέχει τοῖς ἀνδράσιν φαγεῖν καὶ ἐγένετο ἐν τῷ ἐσθίειν αὐτοὺς ἐκ τοῦ ἑψήματος καὶ ἰδοὺ ἀνεβόησαν καὶ εἶπον θάνατος ἐν τῷ λέβητι ἄνθρωπε τοῦ θεοῦ καὶ οὐκ ἠδύναντο φαγεῖν

41 καὶ εἶπεν λάβετε ἄλευρον καὶ ἐμβάλετε εἰς τὸν λέβητα καὶ εἶπεν Ελισαιε πρὸς Γιεζι τὸ παιδάριον ἔγχει τῷ λαῷ καὶ ἐσθιέτωσαν καὶ οὐκ ἐγενήθη ἔτι ἐκεῖ ῥῆμα πονηρὸν ἐν τῷ λέβητι

42 καὶ ἀνὴρ διῆλθεν ἐκ Βαιθσαρισα καὶ ἤνεγκεν πρὸς τὸν ἄνθρωπον τοῦ θεοῦ πρωτογενημάτων εἴκοσι ἄρτους κριθίνους καὶ παλάθας καὶ εἶπεν δότε τῷ λαῷ καὶ ἐσθιέτωσαν

43 καὶ εἶπεν ὁ λειτουργὸς αὐτοῦ τί δῶ τοῦτο ἐνώπιον ἑκατὸν ἀνδρῶν καὶ εἶπεν δὸς τῷ λαῷ καὶ ἐσθιέτωσαν ὅτι τάδε λέγει κύριος φάγονται καὶ καταλείψουσιν

44 καὶ ἔφαγον καὶ κατέλιπον κατὰ τὸ ῥῆμα κυρίου

1 Mulier autem quædam de uxoribus prophetarum clamabat ad Eliseum, dicens: Servus tuus vir meus mortuus est, et tu nosti quia servus tuus fuit timens Dominum: et ecce creditor venit ut tollat duos filios meos ad serviendum sibi.

2 Cui dixit Eliseus: Quid vis ut faciam tibi? dic mihi, quid habes in domo tua? At illa respondit: Non habeo ancilla tua quidquam in domo mea, nisi parum olei quo ungar.

3 Cui ait: Vade, pete mutuo ab omnibus vicinis tuis vasa vacua non pauca,

4 et ingredere, et claude ostium tuum cum intrinsecus fueris tu, et filii tui: et mitte inde in omnia vasa hæc, et cum plena fuerint, tolles.

5 Ivit itaque mulier, et clausit ostium super se, et super filios suos: illi offerebant vasa, et illa infundebat.

6 Cumque plena fuissent vasa, dixit ad filium suum: Affer mihi adhuc vas. Et ille respondit: Non habeo. Stetitque oleum.

7 Venit autem illa, et indicavit homini Dei. Et ille: Vade, inquit, vende oleum, et redde creditori tuo: tu autem, et filii tui vivite de reliquo.

8 Facta est autem quædam dies, et transibat Eliseus per Sunam: erat autem ibi mulier magna, quæ tenuit eum ut comederet panem: cumque frequenter inde transiret, divertebat ad eam ut comederet panem.

9 Quæ dixit ad virum suum: Animadverto quod vir Dei sanctus est iste, qui transit per nos frequenter.

10 Faciamus ergo ei cœnaculum parvum, et ponamus ei in eo lectulum, et mensam, et sellam, et candelabrum, ut cum venerit ad nos, maneat ibi.

11 Facta est ergo dies quædam, et veniens divertit in cœnaculum, et requievit ibi.

12 Dixitque ad Giezi puerum suum: Voca Sunamitidem istam. Qui cum vocasset eam, et illa stetisset coram eo,

13 dixit ad puerum suum: Loquere ad eam: Ecce, sedule in omnibus ministrasti nobis: quid vis ut faciam tibi? numquid habes negotium, et vis ut loquar regi, sive principi militiæ? Quæ respondit: In medio populi mei habito.

14 Et ait: Quid ergo vult ut faciam ei? Dixitque Giezi: Ne quæras: filium enim non habet, et vir ejus senex est.

15 Præcepit itaque ut vocaret eam: quæ cum vocata fuisset, et stetisset ante ostium,

16 dixit ad eam: In tempore isto, et in hac eadem hora, si vita comes fuerit, habebis in utero filium. At illa respondit: Noli quæso, domine mi vir Dei, noli mentiri ancillæ tuæ.

17 Et concepit mulier, et peperit filium in tempore, et in hora eadem, qua dixerat Eliseus.

18 Crevit autem puer: et cum esset quædam dies, et egressus isset ad patrem suum, ad messores,

19 ait patri suo: Caput meum doleo, caput meum doleo. At ille dixit puero: Tolle, et duc eum ad matrem suam.

20 Qui cum tulisset, et duxisset eum ad matrem suam, posuit eum illa super genua sua usque ad meridiem, et mortuus est.

21 Ascendit autem, et collocavit eum super lectulum hominis Dei, et clausit ostium: et egressa,

22 vocavit virum suum, et ait: Mitte mecum, obsecro, unum de pueris, et asinam, ut excurram usque ad hominem Dei, et revertar.

23 Qui ait illi: Quam ob causam vadis ad eum? hodie non sunt calendæ, neque sabbatum. Quæ respondit: Vadam.

24 Stravitque asinam, et præcepit puero: Mina, et propera: ne mihi moram facias in eundo: et hoc age quod præcipio tibi.

25 Profecta est igitur, et venit ad virum Dei in montem Carmeli: cumque vidisset eam vir Dei e contra, ait ad Giezi puerum suum: Ecce Sunamitis illa.

26 Vade ergo in occursum ejus, et dic ei: Recte ne agitur circa te, et circa virum tuum, et circa filium tuum? Quæ respondit: Recte.

27 Cumque venisset ad virum Dei in montem, apprehendit pedes ejus: et accessit Giezi ut amoveret eam. Et ait homo Dei: Dimitte illam: anima enim ejus in amaritudine est, et Dominus celavit a me, et non indicavit mihi.

28 Quæ dixit illi: Numquid petivi filium a domino meo? numquid non dixi tibi: Ne illudas me?

29 Et ille ait ad Giezi: Accinge lumbos tuos, et tolle baculum meum in manu tua, et vade. Si occurrerit tibi homo, non salutes eum: et si salutaverit te quispiam, non respondeas illi: et pones baculum meum super faciem pueri.

30 Porro mater pueri ait: Vivit Dominus, et vivit anima tua, non dimittam te. Surrexit ergo, et secutus est eam.

31 Giezi autem præcesserat ante eos, et posuerat baculum super faciem pueri, et non erat vox, neque sensus: reversusque est in occursum ejus, et nuntiavit ei, dicens: Non surrexit puer.

32 Ingressus est ergo Eliseus domum, et ecce puer mortuus jacebat in lectulo ejus:

33 ingressusque clausit ostium super se et super puerum, et oravit ad Dominum.

34 Et ascendit, et incubuit super puerum: posuitque os suum super os ejus, et oculos suos super oculos ejus, et manus suas super manus ejus: et incurvavit se super eum, et calefacta est caro pueri.

35 At ille reversus, deambulavit in domo, semel huc atque illuc: et ascendit, et incubuit super eum: et oscitavit puer septies, aperuitque oculos.

36 At ille vocavit Giezi, et dixit ei: Voca Sunamitidem hanc. Quæ vocata, ingressa est ad eum. Qui ait: Tolle filium tuum.

37 Venit illa, et corruit ad pedes ejus, et adoravit super terram: tulitque filium suum, et egressa est.

38 Et Eliseus reversus est in Galgala. Erat autem fames in terra, et filii prophetarum habitabant coram eo. Dixitque uni de pueris suis: Pone ollam grandem, et coque pulmentum filiis prophetarum.

39 Et egressus est unus in agrum ut colligeret herbas agrestes: invenitque quasi vitem silvestrem, et collegit ex ea colocynthidas agri, et implevit pallium suum, et reversus concidit in ollam pulmenti: nesciebat enim quid esset.

40 Infuderunt ergo sociis ut comederent: cumque gustassent de coctione, clamaverunt, dicentes: Mors in olla, vir Dei. Et non potuerunt comedere.

41 At ille: Afferte, inquit, farinam. Cumque tulissent, misit in ollam, et ait: Infunde turbæ, ut comedant. Et non fuit amplius quidquam amaritudinis in olla.

42 Vir autem quidam venit de Baalsalisa deferens viro Dei panes primitiarum, viginti panes hordeaceos, et frumentum novum in pera sua. At ille dixit: Da populo, ut comedat.

43 Responditque ei minister ejus: Quantum est hoc, ut apponam centum viris? Rursum ille ait: Da populo, ut comedat: hæc enim dicit Dominus: Comedent, et supererit.

44 Posuit itaque coram eis: qui comederunt, et superfuit juxta verbum Domini.
