1 And the sons of the prophets said to Eliseus: Behold the place where we dwell with thee is too strait for us. 2 Let us go as far as the Jordan and take out of the wood every man apiece of timber, that we may build us there a place to dwell in. And he said: Go. 3 And one of them said: But come thou also with thy servants. He answered: I will come. 4 So he went with them. And when they were come to the Jordan they cut down wood. 5 And it happened, as one was felling some timber, that the head of the axe fell into the water: and he cried out, and said: Alas, alas, alas, my lord, for this same was borrowed.
6 And the man of God said: Where did it fall? and he shewed him the place. Then he cut off a piece of wood, and cast it in thither: and the iron swam. 7 And he said: Take it up. And he put out his hand and took it. 8 And the king of Syria warred against Israel, and took counsel with his servants, saying: In such and such a place let us lay ambushes. 9 And the man of God sent to the king of Israel, saying: Beware that thou pass not to such a place: for the Syrians are there in ambush. 10 And the king of Israel sent to the place which the man of God had told him, and prevented him, and looked well to himself there not once nor twice.
