NIVESVNASBKJVHCSB
1The wife of a man from the company of the prophets cried out to Elisha, "Your servant my husband is dead, and you know that he revered the LORD. But now his creditor is coming to take my two boys as his slaves."1Now the wife of one of the sons of the prophets cried to Elisha, “Your servant my husband is dead, and you know that your servant feared the LORD, but the creditor has come to take my two children to be his slaves.”1Now a certain woman of the wives of the sons of the prophets cried out to 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."1Now there cried a certain woman of the wives of the sons of the prophets unto Elisha, saying, Thy servant my husband is dead; and thou knowest that thy servant did fear the LORD: and the creditor is come to take unto him my two sons to be bondmen.1One of the wives of the sons of the prophets cried out to Elisha, "Your servant, my husband, has died. You know that your servant feared the LORD. Now the creditor is coming to take my two children as his slaves."
2Elisha replied to her, "How can I help you? Tell me, what do you have in your house?" "Your servant has nothing there at all," she said, "except a small jar of olive oil."2And Elisha said to her, “What shall I do for you? Tell me; what have you in the house?” And she said, “Your servant has nothing in the house except a jar of oil.”2Elisha 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."2And Elisha said unto her, What shall I do for thee? tell me, what hast thou in the house? And she said, Thine handmaid hath not any thing in the house, save a pot of oil.2Elisha asked her, "What can I do for you? Tell me, what do you have in the house?" She said, "Your servant has nothing in the house except a jar of oil."
3Elisha said, "Go around and ask all your neighbors for empty jars. Don't ask for just a few.3Then he said, “Go outside, borrow vessels from all your neighbors, empty vessels and not too few.3Then he said, "Go, borrow vessels at large for yourself from all your neighbors, even empty vessels; do not get a few.3Then he said, Go, borrow thee vessels abroad of all thy neighbours, even empty vessels; borrow not a few.3Then he said, "Go and borrow empty containers from everyone--from all your neighbors. Do not get just a few.
4Then go inside and shut the door behind you and your sons. Pour oil into all the jars, and as each is filled, put it to one side."4Then go in and shut the door behind yourself and your sons and pour into all these vessels. And when one is full, set it aside.”4"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."4And when thou art come in, thou shalt shut the door upon thee and upon thy sons, and shalt pour out into all those vessels, and thou shalt set aside that which is full.4Then go in and shut the door behind you and your sons, and pour oil into all these containers. Set the full ones to one side."

5She left him and shut the door behind her and her sons. They brought the jars to her and she kept pouring.5So she went from him and shut the door behind herself and her sons. And as she poured they brought the vessels to her.5So she went from him and shut the door behind her and her sons; they were bringing the vessels to her and she poured.5So she went from him, and shut the door upon her and upon her sons, who brought the vessels to her; and she poured out.5So she left. After she had shut the door behind her and her sons, they kept bringing her containers, and she kept pouring.
6When all the jars were full, she said to her son, "Bring me another one." But he replied, "There is not a jar left." Then the oil stopped flowing.6When the vessels were full, she said to her son, “Bring me another vessel.” And he said to her, “There is not another.” Then the oil stopped flowing.6When 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.6And it came to pass, when the vessels were full, that she said unto her son, Bring me yet a vessel. And he said unto her, There is not a vessel more. And the oil stayed.6When they were full, she said to her son, "Bring me another container." But he replied, "There aren't any more." Then the oil stopped.
7She went and told the man of God, and he said, "Go, sell the oil and pay your debts. You and your sons can live on what is left."7She came and told the man of God, and he said, “Go, sell the oil and pay your debts, and you and your sons can live on the rest.”7Then 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."7Then she came and told the man of God. And he said, Go, sell the oil, and pay thy debt, and live thou and thy children of the rest.7She went and told the man of God, and he said, "Go sell the oil and pay your debt; you and your sons can live on the rest."

13Elisha said to him, "Tell her, 'You have gone to all this trouble for us. Now what can be done for you? Can we speak on your behalf to the king or the commander of the army?'" She replied, "I have a home among my own people."13And he said to him, “Say now to her, ‘See, you have taken all this trouble for us; what is to be done for you? Would you have a word spoken on your behalf to the king or to the commander of the army?’” She answered, “I dwell among my own people.”13He said to him, "Say now to her, 'Behold, you have been careful for us with all this care; what can I do for you? Would you be spoken for to the king or to the captain of the army?'" And she answered, "I live among my own people."13And he said unto him, Say now unto her, Behold, thou hast been careful for us with all this care; what is to be done for thee? wouldest thou be spoken for to the king, or to the captain of the host?

Can we speak on your behalf to the king or to the commander of the army?" She answered, "I am living among my own people."
14"What can be done for her?" Elisha asked. Gehazi said, "She has no son, and her husband is old."14And he said, “What then is to be done for her?” Gehazi answered, “Well, she has no son, and her husband is old.”14So he said, "What then is to be done for her?" And Gehazi answered, "Truly she has no son and her husband is old."14And he said, What then is to be done for her? And Gehazi answered, Verily she hath no child, and her husband is old.14So he asked, "Then what should be done for her?" Gehazi answered, "Well, she has no son, and her husband is old.""
15Then Elisha said, "Call her." So he called her, and she stood in the doorway.15He said, “Call her.” And when he had called her, she stood in the doorway.15He said, "Call her." When he had called her, she stood in the doorway.15And he said, Call her. And when he had called her, she stood in the door.15Call her," Elisha said. So Gehazi called her, and she stood in the doorway.
16"About this time next year," Elisha said, "you will hold a son in your arms." "No, my lord!" she objected. "Please, man of God, don't mislead your servant!"16And he said, “At this season, about this time next year, you shall embrace a son.” And she said, “No, my lord, O man of God; do not lie to your servant.”16Then he said, "At this season next year you will embrace a son." And she said, "No, my lord, O man of God, do not lie to your maidservant."16And he said, About this season, according to the time of life, thou shalt embrace a son. And she said, Nay, my lord, thou man of God, do not lie unto thine handmaid.16Elisha said, "At this time next year you will have a son in your arms." Then she said, "No, my lord. Man of God, do not deceive your servant."
17But the woman became pregnant, and the next year about that same time she gave birth to a son, just as Elisha had told her.17But the woman conceived, and she bore a son about that time the following spring, as Elisha had said to her.17The woman conceived and bore a son at that season the next year, as Elisha had said to her.17And the woman conceived, and bare a son at that season that Elisha had said unto her, according to the time of life.17The woman conceived and gave birth to a son at the same time the following year, as Elisha had promised her.

"Give it to the people to eat," Elisha said.42A man came from Baal-shalishah, bringing the man of God bread of the firstfruits, twenty loaves of barley and fresh ears of grain in his sack. And Elisha said, “Give to the men, that they may eat.”42Now 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."42And there came a man from Baalshalisha, and brought the man of God bread of the firstfruits, twenty loaves of barley, and full ears of corn in the husk thereof. And he said, Give unto the people, that they may eat.42A man from Baal-shalishah came to the man of God with his sack full of 20 loaves of barley bread from the first bread of the harvest. Elisha said, "Give it to the people to eat."
43"How can I set this before a hundred men?" his servant asked. But Elisha answered, "Give it to the people to eat. For this is what the LORD says: 'They will eat and have some left over.'"43But his servant said, “How can I set this before a hundred men?” So he repeated, “Give them to the men, that they may eat, for thus says the LORD, ‘They shall eat and have some left.’”43His 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.'"43And his servitor said, What, should I set this before an hundred men? He said again, Give the people, that they may eat: for thus saith the LORD, They shall eat, and shall leave thereof.43But Elisha's attendant asked, "What? Am I to set 20 loaves before 100 men?"" Give it to the people to eat," Elisha said, "for this is what the LORD says: 'They will eat, and they will have some left over.'"
44Then he set it before them, and they ate and had some left over, according to the word of the LORD.44So he set it before them. And they ate and had some left, according to the word of the LORD.44So he set it before them, and they ate and had some left over, according to the word of the LORD.44So he set it before them, and they did eat, and left thereof, according to the word of the LORD.44So he gave it to them, and as the LORD had promised, they ate and had some left over.
