1 And one of the wives of the sons of the prophets cried to Elisaie, saying, Thy servant my husband is dead; and thou knowest that thy servant feared the Lord: and the creditor is come to take my two sons to be his servants. 2 And Elisaie said, What shall I do for thee? tell me what thou hast in the house. And she said, Thy servant has nothing in the house, except oil wherewith I anoint myself. 3 And he said to her, Go, borrow for thyself vessels without of all thy neighbours, [even] empty vessels; borrow not a few. 4 And thou shalt go in and shut the door upon thee and upon thy sons, and thou shalt pour forth into these vessels, and remove that which is filled. 5 And she departed from him, and shut the door upon herself and upon her sons: they brought the vessels near to her, and she poured in until the vessels were filled. 6 And she said to her sons, Bring me yet a vessel. And they said to her, There is not a vessel more. And the oil stayed. 7 And she came and told the man of God: and Elisaie said, Go, and sell the oil, and thou shalt pay thy debts, and thou and thy sons shall live of the remaining oil. 8 And a day came, when Elisaie passed over to Soman, and [there was] a great lady there, and she constrained him to eat bread: and it came to pass as often as he went into [the city, that] he turned aside to eat there. 9 And the woman said to her husband, See now, I know that this [is] a holy man of God who comes over continually to us. 10 Let us now make for him an upper chamber, a small place; and let us put there for him a bed, and a table, and a stool, and a candlestick: and it shall come to pass that when he comes in to us, he shall turn in thither. 11 And a day came, and he went in thither, and turned aside into the upper chamber, and lay there. 12 And he said to Giezi his servant, Call me this Somanite. and he called her, and she stood before him. 13 And he said to him, Say now to her, Behold, thou hast taken all this trouble for us; what should I do for thee? Hast thou any request [to make] to the king, or to the captain of the host? And she said, I dwell in the midst of my people. 14 And he said to Giezi, What must we do for her? and Giezi his servant said, Indeed she has no son, and her husband [is] old. 15 And he called her, and she stood by the door. 16 And Elisaie said to her, At this time [next year], as the season [is], thou [shalt be] alive, and embrace a son. And she said, Nay, my lord, do not lie to thy servant. 17 And the woman conceived, and bore a son at the very time, as the season was, being alive, as Elisaie said to her. 18 And the child grew: and it came to pass when he went out to his father to the reapers, 19 that he said to his father, My head, my head. and [his father] said to a servant, carry him to his mother. 20 And he carried him to his mother, and he lay upon her knees till noon, and died. 21 And she carried him up and laid him on the bed of the man of God; and she shut the door upon him, and went out. 22 And she called her husband, and said, Send now for me one of the young men, and one of the asses, and I will ride quickly to the man of God, and return. 23 And he said, Why art thou going to him to-day? It is neither new moon, nor the Sabbath. And she said, [It is] well. 24 And she saddled the ass, and said to her servant, Be quick, proceed: spare not on my account to ride, unless I shall tell thee. Go, and thou shalt proceed, and come to the man of God to mount Carmel. 25 And she rode and came to the man of God to the mountain: and it came to pass when Elisaie saw her coming, that he said to Giezi his servant, See now, that Somanite comes. 26 Now run to meet her, and thou shalt say, [Is it] well with thee? [is it] well with thy husband? [is it] well with the child? and she said, [It is] well. 27 And she came to Elisaie to the mountain, and laid hold of his feet; and Giezi drew near to thrust her away. And Elisaie said, Let her alone, for her soul [is] much grieved in her, and the Lord has hidden [it] from me, and has not told [it] me. 28 And she said, Did I ask a son of my lord? For did I not say, Do not deal deceitfully with me? 29 And Elisaie said to Giezi, Gird up thy loins, and take my staff in thy hand, and go: if thou meet any man, thou shalt not salute him, and if a man salute thee thou shalt not answer him: and thou shalt lay my staff on the child’s face. 30 And the mother of the child said, [As] the Lord lives and [as] thy soul lives, I will not leave thee. And Elisaie arose, and went after her. 31 And Giezi went on before her, and laid his staff on the child’s face: but there was neither voice nor any hearing. So he returned to meet him, and told him, saying, The child is not awaked. 32 And Elisaie went into the house, and, behold, the dead child was laid upon his bed. 33 And Elisaie went into the house, and shut the door upon themselves, the two, and prayed to the Lord. 34 And he went up, and lay upon the child, and put his mouth upon his mouth, and his eyes upon his eyes, and his hands upon his hands; and bowed himself upon him, and the flesh of the child grew warm. 35 And he returned, and walked up and down in the house: and he went up, and bowed himself on the child seven times; and the child opened his eyes. 36 And Elisaie cried out to Giezi, and said, Call this Somanite. So he called her, and she came in to him: and Elisaie said, Take thy son. 37 And the woman went in, and fell at his feet, and did obeisance [bowing] to the ground; and she took her son, and went out. 38 And Elisaie returned to Galgala: and a famine [was] in the land; and the sons of the prophets sat before him: and Elisaie said to his servant, Set on the great pot, and boil pottage for the sons of the prophets. 39 And he went out into the field to gather herbs, and found a vine in the field, and gathered of it wild gourds, his garment full; and he cast it into the caldron of pottage, for they knew [them] not. 40 And he poured it out for the men to eat: and it came to pass, when they were eating of the pottage, that lo! they cried out, and said, [There is] death in the pot, O man of God. And they could not eat. 41 And he said, Take meal, and cast it into the pot. And Elisaie said to his servant Giezi, Pour out for the people, and let them eat. And there was no longer there any hurtful thing in the pot. 42 And there came a man over from Baetharisa, and brought to the man of God twenty barley loaves and cakes of figs, of the first-fruits. And he said, Give to the people, and let them eat. 43 And his servant said, Why should I set this before a hundred men? and he said, Give to the people, and let them eat; for thus saith the Lord, They shall eat and leave. 44 And they ate and left, according to the word of the Lord. ΚΑΙ γυνὴ μία ἀπὸ τῶν υἱῶν τῶν προφητῶν ἐβόα πρὸς τὸν ῾Ελισαιὲ λέγουσα· ὁ δοῦλός σου ἀνήρ μου ἀπέθανε, καὶ σὺ ἔγνως ὅτι δοῦλός σου ἦν φοβούμενος τὸν Κύριον· καὶ ὁ δανειστὴς ἦλθε λαβεῖν τοὺς δύο υἱούς μου ἑαυτῷ εἰς δούλους. 2 καὶ εἶπεν ῾Ελισαιέ· τί ποιήσω σοι; ἀνάγγειλόν μοι τί ἔστι σοι ἐν τῷ οἴκῳ. ἡ δὲ εἶπεν· οὐκ ἔστι τῇ δούλῃ σου οὐδὲν ἐν τῷ οἴκῳ, ὅτι ἀλλ᾿ ἢ ὃ ἀλείψομαι ἔλαιον. 3 καὶ εἶπε πρὸς αὐτήν· δεῦρο αἴτησαι σεαυτῇ σκεύη ἔξωθεν παρὰ πάντων τῶν γειτόνων 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 ἀπῆλθε παρ᾿ αὐτοῦ, καὶ ἀπέκλεισε τὴν θύραν καθ᾿ ἑαυτῆς καὶ κατὰ τῶν υἱῶν αὐτῆς· αὐτοὶ προσήγγιζον πρὸς αὐτήν, καὶ αὐτὴ ἐπέχεεν ἕως ἐπλήσθησαν τὰ σκεύη. 6 καὶ εἶπε πρὸς τοὺς υἱοὺς αὐτῆς· ἐγγίσατε ἔτι πρός με τὸ σκεῦος· καὶ εἶπον αὐτῇ· οὐκ ἔστιν ἔτι σκεῦος· καὶ ἔστη τὸ ἔλαιον. 7 καὶ ἦλθε καὶ ἀπήγγειλε τῷ ἀνθρώπῳ τοῦ Θεοῦ, καὶ εἶπεν ῾Ελισαιέ· δεῦρο καὶ ἀπόδου τὸ ἔλαιον καὶ ἀποτίσεις τοὺς τόκους σου, καὶ σὺ καὶ οἱ υἱοί σου ζήσεσθε ἐν τῷ ἐπιλοίπῳ ἐλαίῳ. 8 καὶ ἐγένετο ἡμέρα καὶ διέβη ῾Ελισαιὲ εἰς Σωμάν, καὶ ἐκεῖ γυνὴ μεγάλη καὶ ἐκράτησεν αὐτὸν φαγεῖν ἄρτον. καὶ ἐγένετο ἀφ᾿ ἱκανοῦ τοῦ εἰσπορεύεσθαι αὐτὸν ἐξέκλινε 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 εἶπε πρὸς Γιεζὶ 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 ἔστι λόγος σοι πρὸς τὸν βασιλέα ἢ πρὸς τὸν ἄρχοντα τῆς δυνάμεως; ἡ δὲ εἶπεν· ἐν μέσῳ τοῦ λαοῦ ἐγώ εἰμι οἰκῶ. 14 καὶ εἶπε πρὸς Γιεζί· τί δεῖ ποιῆσαι αὐτῇ; καὶ εἶπε Γιεζὶ 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 ῾Ελισαιὲ πρὸς αὐτήν· εἰς τὸν καιρὸν τοῦτον, ὡς ἡ ὥρα, ζῶσα σὺ περιειληφυῖα υἱόν. ἡ δὲ εἶπε· μὴ Κύριε, μὴ διαψεύσῃ τὴν δούλην σου. 17 καὶ ἐν γαστρὶ ἔλαβεν ἡ γυνὴ καὶ ἔτεκεν υἱὸν εἰς τὸν καιρὸν τοῦτον, ὡς ἡ ὥρα, ζῶσα, ὡς ἐλάλησε πρὸς αὐτὴν ῾Ελισαιέ. 18 καὶ ἡδρύνθη τὸ παιδάριον· καὶ ἐγένετο ἡνίκα ἐξῆλθε πρὸς τὸν πατέρα αὐτοῦ πρὸς τοὺς θερίζοντας, 19 καὶ εἶπε πρὸς τὸν πατέρα αὐτοῦ· τὴν κεφαλήν μου, τὴν κεφαλήν μου· καὶ εἶπε τῷ παιδαρίῳ· ἆρον αὐτὸν πρὸς τὴν μητέρα αὐτοῦ. 20 καὶ ᾖρεν αὐτὸν πρὸς τὴν μητέρα αὐτοῦ, καὶ ἐκοιμήθη ἐπὶ τῶν γονάτων αὐτῆς ἕως μεσημβρίας καὶ ἀπέθανε. 21 καὶ ἀνήνεγκεν αὐτὸν καὶ ἐκοίμισεν αὐτὸν ἐπὶ τὴν κλίνην τοῦ ἀνθρώπου τοῦ Θεοῦ καὶ ἀπέκλεισε κατ᾿ αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐξῆλθε. 22 καὶ ἐκάλεσε 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 εἶπε· τί ὅτι σὺ πορεύῃ πρὸς αὐτὸν σήμερον; οὐ νεομηνία οὐδὲ σάββατον. ἡ δὲ εἶπεν· εἰρήνη. 24 καὶ ἐπέσαξε τὴν ὄνον καὶ εἶπε πρὸς τὸ παιδάριον αὐτῆς· ἄγε πορεύου, μὴ ἐπίσχῃς μοι τοῦ ἐπιβῆναι, ὅτι ἐὰν εἴπω σοι· δεῦρο καὶ πορεύσῃ καὶ ἐλεύσῃ πρὸς τὸν ἄνθρωπον τοῦ Θεοῦ εἰς ὄρος τὸ Καρμήλιον. 25 καὶ ἐπορεύθη καὶ ἦλθεν ἕως τοῦ ἀνθρώπου τοῦ Θεοῦ εἰς τὸ ὄρος. καὶ ἐγένετο ὡς εἶδεν ῾Ελισαιὲ ἐρχομένην αὐτήν, καὶ εἶπε πρὸς Γιεζὶ 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 ἦλθε πρὸς ῾Ελισαιὲ εἰς τὸ ὄρος καὶ ἐπελάβετο τῶν ποδῶν αὐτοῦ. καὶ ἤγγισε Γιεζὶ ἀπώσασθαι αὐτήν, καὶ εἶπεν ῾Ελισαιέ· ἄφες αὐτήν, ὅτι ἡ ψυχὴ αὐτῆς κατώδυνος αὐτῇ, καὶ Κύριος ἀπέκρυψεν ἀπ᾿ ἐμοῦ καὶ οὐκ ἀνήγγειλέ μοι. 28 ἡ δὲ εἶπε· μὴ ᾐτησάμην υἱὸν παρὰ τοῦ Κυρίου μου; ὅτι οὐκ εἶπα· οὐ πλανήσεις μετ᾿ ἐμοῦ; 29 καὶ εἶπεν ῾Ελισαιὲ τῷ Γιεζί· 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 ῾Ελισαιὲ καὶ ἐπορεύθη ὀπίσω αὐτῆς. 31 καὶ Γιεζὶ διῆλθεν ἔμπροσθεν αὐτῆς καὶ ἐπέθηκε 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 ῾Ελισαιὲ εἰς τὸν οἶκον καὶ ἰδοὺ τὸ παιδάριον τεθνηκὸς κεκοιμισμένον ἐπὶ τὴν κλίνην αὐτοῦ. 33 καὶ εἰσῆλθεν ῾Ελισαιὲ εἰς τὸν οἶκον καὶ ἀπέκλεισε τὴν θύραν κατὰ τῶν δύο ἑαυτῶν καὶ προσηύξατο πρὸς Κύριον· 34 καὶ ἀνέβη καὶ ἐκοιμήθη ἐπὶ τὸ παιδάριον καὶ ἔθηκε 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 σάρξ τοῦ παιδαρίου. 35 καὶ ἐπέστρεψε καὶ ἐπορεύθη ἐν τῇ οἰκίᾳ ἔνθεν καὶ ἔνθεν καὶ ἀνέβη καὶ συνέκαμψεν ἐπὶ τὸ παιδάριον ἕως ἑπτάκις, καὶ ἤνοιξε τὸ παιδάριον τοὺς ὀφθαλμοὺς αὐτοῦ. 36 καὶ ἐξεβόησε ῾Ελισαιὲ πρὸς Γιεζὶ καὶ εἶπε· κάλεσον τὴν Σωμανῖτιν ταύτην· καὶ ἐκάλεσε, καὶ εἰσῆλθε πρὸς αὐτόν. καὶ εἶπεν ῾Ελισαιέ· λάβε τὸν υἱόν σου. 37 καὶ εἰσῆλθεν ἡ γυνὴ καὶ ἔπεσεν ἐπὶ τοὺς πόδας αὐτοῦ καὶ προσεκύνησεν ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν καὶ ἔλαβε τὸν υἱὸν αὐτῆς καὶ ἐξῆλθε. 38 καὶ ῾Ελισαιὲ ἐπέστρεψεν εἰς Γάλγαλα, καὶ ὁ λιμὸς ἐν τῇ γῇ, καὶ υἱοὶ τῶν προφητῶν ἐκάθηντο ἐνώπιον αὐτοῦ. καὶ εἶπεν ῾Ελισαιὲ τῷ παιδαρίῳ αὐτοῦ· ἐπίστησεν τὸν λέβητα τὸν μέγαν καὶ ἕψε ἕψεμα τοῖς υἱοῖς τῶν προφητῶν. 39 καὶ ἐξῆλθεν εἰς τὸν ἀγρὸν συλλέξαι ἀριὼθ 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 ἀνδράσι φαγεῖν, καὶ ἐγένετο ἐν τῷ ἐσθίειν αὐτοὺς ἐκ τοῦ ἑψέματος καὶ ἰδοὺ ἀνεβόησαν καὶ εἶπαν· θάνατος ἐν τῷ λέβητι, ἄνθρωπε τοῦ Θεοῦ· καὶ οὐκ ἠδύναντο φαγεῖν. 41 καὶ εἶπε· λάβετε ἄλευρον καὶ ἐμβάλετε εἰς τὸν λέβητα· καὶ εἶπεν ῾Ελισαιὲ πρὸς Γιεζὶ τὸ παιδάριον· ἔγχει τῷ λαῷ καὶ ἐσθιέτωσαν· καὶ οὐκ ἐγενήθη ἐκεῖ ἔτι ῥῆμα πονηρὸν ἐν τῷ λέβητι. 42 καὶ ἀνὴρ διῆλθεν ἐκ Βαιθσαρισὰ καὶ ἤνεγκε πρὸς τὸν ἄνθρωπον τοῦ Θεοῦ πρωτογεννημάτων εἴκοσιν ἄρτους κριθίνους καὶ παλάθας, καὶ εἶπε· δότε τῷ λαῷ καὶ ἐσθιέτωσαν. 43 καὶ εἶπεν ὁ λειτουργὸς αὐτοῦ· τί δῶ τοῦτο ἐνώπιον ἑκατὸν ἀνδρῶν; καὶ εἶπε· δὸς τῷ λαῷ καὶ ἐσθιέτωσαν, ὅτι τάδε λέγει Κύριος· φάγονται καὶ καταλείψουσι. 44 καὶ ἔφαγον καὶ κατέλιπον κατὰ τὸ ρῆμα Κυρίου.
