2 Kings 6
The sons of the prophets get leave to enlarge their dwelling: Elisha causeth the iron to swim. He discloseth and disappointeth the counsels of the king of Syria, who sendeth troops to apprehend him in Dothan. Elisha's servant is terrified at seeing them, but is encouraged by his master with a vision of horses and chariots of fire. The Syrians, struck blind at Elisha's prayer, are conducted by him into the midst of Samaria, where they recover their sight, are kindly entertained, and dismissed in peace. Ben-hadad besiegeth Samaria, which occasioneth a great famine. Women eat their own children. The king sendeth to slay Elisha.
