列王纪下 4

以利沙帮助穷寡妇

1有一个先知的妻子哀求以利沙说:“你仆人——我丈夫怎样敬畏耶和华,你是知道的。如今他去世了,债主来取我的两个孩子做奴隶。” 以利沙问她:“我该怎样帮你呢?告诉我,你家里有什么?”妇人答道:“婢女家什么也没有,只有一瓶油。” 以利沙说:“你去向所有的邻居借空器皿,要尽量多借一些。 然后回家关上门,你和你儿子在屋里把那瓶油倒在所有借来的器皿中,装满的放在一边。” 于是,妇人辞别以利沙,回去后把自己和儿子关在屋里,儿子递给她器皿,她就倒油。 器皿都装满了,她对儿子说:“再拿个器皿给我。”儿子说:“已经没有了。”这时,油止住了。 妇人将经过告诉上帝的仆人,上帝的仆人对她说:“你去把油卖了还债,你们母子可以用剩下的钱度日。”

以利沙和书念妇人

一天,以利沙路过书念,那里一位富有的妇人挽留他吃饭。此后以利沙每次路过那里,总到她家里吃饭。 那妇人对丈夫说:“我看常路过我们这里的这位是上帝圣洁的仆人。他常路过我们这里, 10 不如我们在房顶上给他盖一间小屋,里面放床、桌子、椅子和灯。这样,他来我们家时,可以在那里休息。”

11 一天,以利沙又到了那里,便在那间小屋里休息。 12 以利沙吩咐仆人基哈西去请书念的妇人。她来了,站在以利沙面前。 13 以利沙吩咐基哈西说:“你对她说,‘你为我们费了不少心,我们该为你做些什么呢?要不要我们在王或元帅面前为你说些好话呢?’”她答道:“我在本族中安居无事。” 14 以利沙问基哈西:“我们能为她做什么呢?”基哈西说:“她没有儿子,丈夫也已经老了。” 15 以利沙说:“你再去请她来。”她来了,站在门口。 16 以利沙对她说:“明年这时候,你必抱一个儿子。”她说:“上帝的仆人,我主啊,不要骗我。” 17 那妇人果然怀了孕,在第二年的那时候生了一个儿子,应验了以利沙对她说的话。

18 孩子渐渐长大。一天,他到收割的人那里找他父亲。 19 突然,他对他父亲喊道:“我的头啊!我的头啊!”他父亲见状,立刻吩咐仆人抱他到他母亲那里。 20 仆人把他抱起来,送到他母亲那里。孩子坐在母亲的膝上,到中午就死了。 21 他母亲上楼把他放在上帝仆人的床上,关上门出来。 22 她叫来丈夫,对他说:“请你预备一个仆人和一头驴,我好赶快去见上帝的仆人,然后返回来。” 23 她丈夫说:“今天不是朔日[a],也不是安息日,你为什么要去见他?”妇人说:“平安无事。” 24 她骑上驴,对仆人说:“快走吧!我不吩咐你,就不要慢下来。”

25 她就去迦密山见上帝的仆人。上帝的仆人远远望见她,就对仆人基哈西说:“你看,书念的妇人来了! 26 你跑去迎接她,问问她和她的丈夫与孩子都好吗。”

妇人对以利沙的仆人说:“一切都好。”

27 可是,她上山见到上帝的仆人后,就抱住他的脚。基哈西想要推开她,但上帝的仆人说:“由她吧!因为她心里非常痛苦。耶和华没有告诉我发生了什么事。” 28 妇人说:“我何尝向我主求过儿子呢?我不是对你说不要骗我吗?” 29 以利沙吩咐基哈西:“你要束上腰带,拿着我的杖去她家。路上不论遇见谁,都不要问候他。有人问候你,也不要作答。去把我的杖放在孩子脸上。” 30 孩子的母亲说:“我凭永活的耶和华和你的性命起誓,你若不同去,我决不离开你。”于是,以利沙跟她同去。 31 基哈西先赶到,把杖放在孩子脸上,可是孩子一点动静也没有。他就回去找以利沙,路上碰见他,便说:“孩子还没醒过来。”

32 以利沙进了屋子,看见孩子死了,躺在床上, 33 就关上门,向耶和华祈祷。 34 祷告后,他上床伏在孩子身上,口对口,眼对眼,手对手,孩子的身体渐渐变暖了。 35 然后,以利沙起来在房内来回走了一趟,又上床伏在孩子身上。孩子打了七个喷嚏,便睁开了眼睛。 36 以利沙叫基哈西请那妇人来。妇人来了,以利沙对她说:“把你儿子抱走吧。” 37 妇人进来,在以利沙脚前下拜,然后抱起儿子出去了。

用面粉解毒

38 以利沙回到吉甲,那里正闹饥荒。一群先知坐在他面前,他吩咐仆人把一口大锅放在火上给他们煮汤。 39 有个先知到田间摘野菜,看见一棵野瓜藤,便摘了一兜野瓜回来,切碎了放进锅里,却不知道那是什么瓜。 40 汤煮好后倒出来给众人喝,他们刚喝了一点,就叫道:“上帝的仆人啊,汤里有毒!”他们都不敢喝了。 41 以利沙说:“拿点面粉来。”他把面粉撒在锅里,说:“倒出来给众人喝吧。”于是,汤里没有毒了。

用二十个饼喂饱百人

42 从巴力·沙利沙来了一个人,他带了二十个用初熟大麦做的饼和一些麦穗送给上帝的仆人。上帝的仆人说:“分给众人吃吧。” 43 仆人说:“这些怎么够一百人吃呢?”以利沙说:“你只管分给众人吃。因为耶和华说,‘众人都能吃饱,并且还会剩下。’” 44 于是,仆人将食物摆在众人面前,他们都吃饱了,果然还有剩余,正如耶和华所言。

New American Standard Bible

2 Kings 4

The Widow’s Oil

1Now a certain woman of the wives of the sons of the prophets cried out to [a]Elisha, “Your servant my husband is dead, and you know that your servant feared the Lord; and the creditor has come to take my two children to be his slaves.” Elisha said to her, “What shall I do for you? Tell me, what do you have in the house?” And she said, “Your maidservant has nothing in the house except a jar of oil.” Then he said, “Go, borrow vessels at large for yourself from all your neighbors, even empty vessels; do not get a few. And you shall go in and shut the door behind you and your sons, and pour out into all these vessels, and you shall set aside what is full.” So she went from him and shut the door behind her and her sons; they were bringing the vessels to her and she poured. When the vessels were full, she said to her son, “Bring me another vessel.” And he said to her, “There is not one vessel more.” And the oil stopped. Then she came and told the man of God. And he said, “Go, sell the oil and pay your debt, and you and your sons can live on the rest.”

The Shunammite Woman

Now there came a day when Elisha passed over to Shunem, where there was a [b]prominent woman, and she persuaded him to eat [c]food. And so it was, as often as he passed by, he turned in there to eat [d]food. She said to her husband, “Behold now, I perceive that this is a holy man of God passing by us continually. 10 Please, let us make a little walled upper chamber and let us set a bed for him there, and a table and a chair and a lampstand; and it shall be, when he comes to us, that he can turn in there.”

11 [e]One day he came there and turned in to the upper chamber and [f]rested. 12 Then he said to Gehazi his servant, “Call this Shunammite.” And when he had called her, she stood before him. 13 He said to him, “Say now to her, ‘Behold, you have been [g]careful for us with all this [h]care; what can I do for you? Would you be spoken for to the king or to the captain of the army?’” And she [i]answered, “I live among my own people.” 14 So he said, “What then is to be done for her?” And Gehazi [j]answered, “Truly she has no son and her husband is old.” 15 He said, “Call her.” When he had called her, she stood in the doorway. 16 Then he said, “At this season [k]next year you will embrace a son.” And she said, “No, my lord, O man of God, do not lie to your maidservant.”

17 The woman conceived and bore a son at that season [l]the next year, as Elisha had said to her.

The Shunammite’s Son

18 When the child was grown, the day came that he went out to his father to the reapers. 19 He said to his father, “My head, my head.” And he said to his servant, “Carry him to his mother.” 20 When he had taken him and brought him to his mother, he sat on her [m]lap until noon, and then died. 21 She went up and laid him on the bed of the man of God, and shut the door behind him and went out. 22 Then she called to her husband and said, “Please send me one of the servants and one of the donkeys, that I may run to the man of God and return.” 23 He said, “Why will you go to him today? It is neither new moon nor sabbath.” And she said, “It will be well.” 24 Then she saddled a donkey and said to her servant, “Drive and go forward; do not slow down [n]the pace for me unless I tell you.” 25 So she went and came to the man of God to Mount Carmel.

When the man of God saw her at a distance, he said to Gehazi his servant, “Behold, [o]there is the Shunammite. 26 Please run now to meet her and say to her, ‘Is it well with you? Is it well with your husband? Is it well with the child?’” And she [p]answered, “It is well.” 27 When she came to the man of God to the hill, she caught hold of his feet. And Gehazi came near to push her away; but the man of God said, “Let her alone, for her soul is [q]troubled within her; and the Lord has hidden it from me and has not told me.” 28 Then she said, “Did I ask for a son from my lord? Did I not say, ‘Do not deceive me’?”

29 Then he said to Gehazi, “Gird up your loins and take my staff in your hand, and go your way; if you meet any man, do not salute him, and if anyone salutes you, do not answer him; and lay my staff on the lad’s face.” 30 The mother of the lad said, “As the Lord lives and as you yourself live, I will not leave you.” And he arose and followed her. 31 Then Gehazi passed on before them and laid the staff on the lad’s face, but there was no sound or [r]response. So he returned to meet him and told [s]him, “The lad has not awakened.”

32 When Elisha came into the house, behold the lad was dead and laid on his bed. 33 So he entered and shut the door behind them both and prayed to the Lord. 34 And he went up and lay on the child, and put his mouth on his mouth and his eyes on his eyes and his hands on his hands, and he stretched himself on him; and the flesh of the child became warm. 35 Then he returned and walked in the house once back and forth, and went up and stretched himself on him; and the lad sneezed seven times and the lad opened his eyes. 36 He called Gehazi and said, “Call this Shunammite.” So he called her. And when she came in to him, he said, “Take up your son.” 37 Then she went in and fell at his feet and bowed herself to the ground, and she took up her son and went out.

The Poisonous Stew

38 When Elisha returned to Gilgal, there was a famine in the land. [t]As the sons of the prophets were sitting before him, he said to his servant, “Put on the large pot and boil stew for the sons of the prophets.” 39 Then one went out into the field to gather herbs, and found a wild vine and gathered from it his lap full of wild gourds, and came and sliced them into the pot of stew, for they did not know what they were. 40 So they poured it out for the men to eat. And as they were eating of the stew, they cried out and said, “O man of God, there is death in the pot.” And they were unable to eat. 41 But he said, “Now bring meal.” He threw it into the pot and said, “Pour it out for the people that they may eat.” Then there was no harm in the pot.

42 Now a man came from Baal-shalishah, and brought the man of God bread of the first fruits, twenty loaves of barley and fresh ears of grain in his sack. And he said, “Give them to the people that they may eat.” 43 His attendant said, “What, will I set this before a hundred men?” But he said, “Give them to the people that they may eat, for thus says the Lord, ‘They shall eat and have some left over.’” 44 So he set it before them, and they ate and had some left over, according to the word of the Lord.
