2 Kings 2 Text (WEB)
  1. It happened, when Yahweh would take up Elijah by a whirlwind into heaven, that Elijah went with Elisha from Gilgal.
  2. Elijah said to Elisha, "Please wait here, for Yahweh has sent me as far as Bethel." Elisha said, "As Yahweh lives, and as your soul lives, I will not leave you." So they went down to Bethel.
  3. The sons of the prophets who were at Bethel came out to Elisha, and said to him, "Do you know that Yahweh will take away your master from your head today?" He said, "Yes, I know it; hold your peace."
  4. Elijah said to him, "Elisha, please wait here, for Yahweh has sent me to Jericho." He said, "As Yahweh lives, and as your soul lives, I will not leave you." So they came to Jericho.
  5. The sons of the prophets who were at Jericho came near to Elisha, and said to him, "Do you know that Yahweh will take away your master from your head today?" He answered, "Yes, I know it. Hold your peace."
  6. Elijah said to him, "Please wait here, for Yahweh has sent me to the Jordan." He said, "As Yahweh lives, and as your soul lives, I will not leave you." They both went on.
  7. Fifty men of the sons of the prophets went, and stood opposite them at a distance; and they both stood by the Jordan.
  8. Elijah took his mantle, and wrapped it together, and struck the waters, and they were divided here and there, so that they two went over on dry ground.
  9. It happened, when they had gone over, that Elijah said to Elisha, "Ask what I shall do for you, before I am taken from you." Elisha said, "Please let a double portion of your spirit be on me."
  10. He said, "You have asked a hard thing. If you see me when I am taken from you, it shall be so for you; but if not, it shall not be so."
  11. It happened, as they still went on, and talked, that behold, a chariot of fire and horses of fire separated them; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven.
  12. Elisha saw it, and he cried, "My father, my father, the chariots of Israel and its horsemen!" He saw him no more: and he took hold of his own clothes, and tore them in two pieces.
  13. He took up also the mantle of Elijah that fell from him, and went back, and stood by the bank of the Jordan.
  14. He took the mantle of Elijah that fell from him, and struck the waters, and said, "Where is Yahweh, the God of Elijah?" When he also had struck the waters, they were divided here and there; and Elisha went over.
  15. When the sons of the prophets who were at Jericho over against him saw him, they said, "The spirit of Elijah rests on Elisha." They came to meet him, and bowed themselves to the ground before him.
  16. They said to him, "See now, there are with your servants fifty strong men. Please let them go and seek your master. Perhaps the Spirit of Yahweh has taken him up, and put him on some mountain, or into some valley. He said, "You shall not send them."
  17. When they urged him until he was ashamed, he said, "Send them." They sent therefore fifty men; and they searched for three days, but didn't find him.
  18. They came back to him, while he stayed at Jericho; and he said to them, "Didn't I tell you, 'Don't go?'"
  19. The men of the city said to Elisha, "Behold, please, the situation of this city is pleasant, as my lord sees; but the water is bad, and the land miscarries."
  20. He said, "Bring me a new jar, and put salt in it." They brought it to him.
  21. He went out to the spring of the waters, and threw salt into it, and said, "Thus says Yahweh, 'I have healed these waters. There shall not be from there any more death or miscarrying.'"
  22. So the waters were healed to this day, according to the word of Elisha which he spoke.
  23. He went up from there to Bethel. As he was going up by the way, some youths came out of the city and mocked him, and said to him, "Go up, you baldy! Go up, you baldhead!"
  24. He looked behind him and saw them, and cursed them in the name of Yahweh. Two female bears came out of the woods, and mauled forty-two of those youths.
  25. He went from there to Mount Carmel, and from there he returned to Samaria.

  21. ויצא אל־מוצא המים וישלך־שם מלח ויאמר כה־אמר יהוה רפאתי למים האלה לא־יהיה משם עוד מות ומשכלת׃
  22. וירפו המים עד היום הזה כדבר אלישע אשר דבר׃ ף
  23. ויעל משם בית־אל והוא עלה בדרך ונערים קטנים יצאו מן־העיר ויתקלסו־בו ויאמרו לו עלה קרח עלה קרח׃
  24. ויפן אחריו ויראם ויקללם בשם יהוה ותצאנה שתים דבים מן־היער ותבקענה מהם ארבעים ושני ילדים׃
  25. וילך משם אל־הר הכרמל ומשם שב שמרון׃ ף

  1. και εγενετο εν τω αναγειν κυριον τον ηλιου εν συσσεισμω ως εις τον ουρανον και επορευθη ηλιου και ελισαιε εκ

2 Kings 2 Text (Latin)
  1. Factum est autem cum levare vellet Dominus Eliam per turbinem in cælum, ibant Elias et Eliseus de Galgalis.
  2. Dixitque Elias ad Eliseum : Sede hic, quia Dominus misit me usque in Bethel. Cui ait Eliseus : Vivit Dominus, et vivit anima tua, quia non derelinquam te. Cumque descendissent Bethel,
  3. egressi sunt filii prophetarum, qui erant in Bethel, ad Eliseum, et dixerunt ei : Numquid nosti, quia hodie Dominus tollet dominum tuum a te ? Qui respondit : Et ego novi : silete.
  4. Dixit autem Elias ad Eliseum : Sede hic, quia Dominus misit me in Jericho. Et ille ait : Vivit Dominus, et vivit anima tua, quia non derelinquam te. Cumque venissent Jericho,
  5. accesserunt filii prophetarum, qui erant in Jericho, ad Eliseum, et dixerunt ei : Numquid nosti quia Dominus hodie tollet dominum tuum a te ? Et ait : Ego novi : silete.
  6. Dixit autem ei Elias : Sede hic, quia Dominus misit me usque ad Jordanem. Qui ait : Vivit Dominus, et vivit anima tua, quia non derelinquam te. Ierunt igitur ambo pariter,
  7. et quinquaginta viri de filiis prophetarum secuti sunt eos, qui et steterunt econtra, longe : illi autem ambo stabant super Jordanem.
  8. Tulitque Elias pallium suum, et involvit illud, et percussit aquas, quæ divisæ sunt in utramque partem, et transierunt ambo per siccum.
  9. Cumque transissent, Elias dixit ad Eliseum : Postula quod vis ut faciam tibi, antequam tollar a te. Dixitque Eliseus : Obsecro ut fiat in me duplex spiritus tuus.
  10. Qui respondit : Rem difficilem postulasti : attamen si videris me, quando tollar a te, erit tibi quod petisti : si autem non videris, non erit.
  11. Cumque pergerent, et incedentes sermocinarentur, ecce currus igneus, et equi ignei diviserunt utrumque : et ascendit Elias per turbinem in cælum.
  12. Eliseus autem videbat, et clamabat : Pater mi, pater mi, currus Israël, et auriga ejus. Et non vidit eum amplius : apprehenditque vestimenta sua, et scidit illa in duas partes.
  13. Et levavit pallium Eliæ, quod ceciderat ei : reversusque stetit super ripam Jordanis,
  14. et pallio Eliæ, quod ceciderat ei, percussit aquas, et non sunt divisæ : et dixit : Ubi est Deus Eliæ etiam nunc ? Percussitque aquas, et divisæ sunt huc atque illuc, et transiit Eliseus.
  15. Videntes autem filii prophetarum, qui erant in Jericho econtra, dixerunt : Requievit spiritus Eliæ super Eliseum. Et venientes in occursum ejus, adoraverunt eum proni in terram,
  16. dixeruntque illi : Ecce, cum servis tuis sunt quinquaginta viri fortes, qui possunt ire, et quærere dominum tuum, ne forte tulerit eum spiritus Domini, et projecerit eum in unum montium, aut in unam vallium. Qui ait : Nolite mittere.
  17. Coëgeruntque eum, donec acquiesceret, et diceret : Mittite. Et miserunt quinquaginta viros : qui cum quæsissent tribus diebus, non invenerunt.
  18. Et reversi sunt ad eum : at ille habitabat in Jericho, et dixit eis : Numquid non dixi vobis : Nolite mittere ?
  19. Dixerunt quoque viri civitatis ad Eliseum : Ecce habitatio civitatis hujus optima est, sicut tu ipse domine perspicis : sed aquæ pessimæ sunt, et terra sterilis.
  20. At ille ait : Afferte mihi vas novum, et mittite in illud sal. Quod cum attulissent,
  21. egressus ad fontem aquarum misit in illum sal, et ait : Hæc dicit Dominus : Sanavi aquas has, et non erit ultra in eis mors, neque sterilitas.
  22. Sanatæ sunt ergo aquæ usque in diem hanc, juxta verbum Elisei, quod locutus est.
  23. Ascendit autem inde in Bethel : cumque ascenderet per viam, pueri parvi egressi sunt de civitate, et illudebant ei, dicentes : Ascende calve, ascende calve.
  24. Qui cum respexisset, vidit eos, et maledixit eis in nomine Domini : egressique sunt duo ursi de saltu, et laceraverunt ex eis quadraginta duos pueros.
  25. Abiit autem inde in montem Carmeli, et inde reversus est in Samariam.
2 Kings 2 Text (KJV)
  1. And it came to pass, when the LORD would take up Elijah into heaven by a whirlwind, that Elijah went with Elisha from Gilgal.
  2. And Elijah said unto Elisha, Tarry here, I pray thee; for the LORD hath sent me to Bethel. And Elisha said unto him, As the LORD liveth, and as thy soul liveth, I will not leave thee. So they went down to Bethel.
  3. And the sons of the prophets that were at Bethel came forth to Elisha, and said unto him, Knowest thou that the LORD will take away thy master from thy head to day? And he said, Yea, I know it; hold ye your peace.
  4. And Elijah said unto him, Elisha, tarry here, I pray thee; for the LORD hath sent me to Jericho. And he said, As the LORD liveth, and as thy soul liveth, I will not leave thee. So they came to Jericho.
  5. And the sons of the prophets that were at Jericho came to Elisha, and said unto him, Knowest thou that the LORD will take away thy master from thy head to day? And he answered, Yea, I know it; hold ye your peace.
  6. And Elijah said unto him, Tarry, I pray thee, here; for the LORD hath sent me to Jordan. And he said, As the LORD liveth, and as thy soul liveth, I will not leave thee. And they two went on.
  7. And fifty men of the sons of the prophets went, and stood to view afar off: and they two stood by Jordan.
  8. And Elijah took his mantle, and wrapped it together, and smote the waters, and they were divided hither and thither, so that they two went over on dry ground.
  9. And it came to pass, when they were gone over, that Elijah said unto Elisha, Ask what I shall do for thee, before I be taken away from thee. And Elisha said, I pray thee, let a double portion of thy spirit be upon me.
  10. And he said, Thou hast asked a hard thing: nevertheless, if thou see me when I am taken from thee, it shall be so unto thee; but if not, it shall not be so.
  11. And it came to pass, as they still went on, and talked, that, behold, there appeared a chariot of fire, and horses of fire, and parted them both asunder; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven.
  12. And Elisha saw it, and he cried, My father, my father, the chariot of Israel, and the horsemen thereof. And he saw him no more: and he took hold of his own clothes, and rent them in two pieces.
  13. He took up also the mantle of Elijah that fell from him, and went back, and stood by the bank of Jordan;
  14. And he took the mantle of Elijah that fell from him, and smote the waters, and said, Where is the LORD God of Elijah? and when he also had smitten the waters, they parted hither and thither: and Elisha went over.
  15. And when the sons of the prophets which were to view at Jericho saw him, they said, The spirit of Elijah doth rest on Elisha. And they came to meet him, and bowed themselves to the ground before him.
  16. And they said unto him, Behold now, there be with thy servants fifty strong men; let them go, we pray thee, and seek thy master: lest peradventure the Spirit of the LORD hath taken him up, and cast him upon some mountain, or into some valley. And he said, Ye shall not send.
  17. And when they urged him till he was ashamed, he said, Send. They sent therefore fifty men; and they sought three days, but found him not.
  18. And when they came again to him, (for he tarried at Jericho,) he said unto them, Did I not say unto you, Go not?
  19. And the men of the city said unto Elisha, Behold, I pray thee, the situation of this city is pleasant, as my lord seeth: but the water is naught, and the ground barren.
  20. And he said, Bring me a new cruse, and put salt therein. And they brought it to him.
  21. And he went forth unto the spring of the waters, and cast the salt in there, and said, Thus saith the LORD, I have healed these waters; there shall not be from thence any more death or barren land.
  22. So the waters were healed unto this day, according to the saying of Elisha which he spake.
  23. And he went up from thence unto Bethel: and as he was going up by the way, there came forth little children out of the city, and mocked him, and said unto him, Go up, thou bald head; go up, thou bald head.
  24. And he turned back, and looked on them, and cursed them in the name of the LORD. And there came forth two she bears out of the wood, and tare forty and two children of them.
  25. And he went from thence to mount Carmel, and from thence he returned to Samaria.
