7:1 Then Elisha [H477] said [H559] , Hear [H8085] ye the word [H1697] of the LORD [H3068] ; Thus saith [H559] the LORD [H3068] , To morrow [H4279] about this time [H6256] [shall] a measure [H5429] of fine flour [H5560] [be sold] for a shekel [H8255] , and two measures [H5429] of barley [H8184] for a shekel [H8255] , in the gate [H8179] of Samaria [H8111] .

7:2 Then a lord [H7991] on whose hand [H3027] the king [H4428] leaned [H8172] answered [H6030] the man [H376] of God [H430] , and said [H559] , Behold, [if] the LORD [H3068] would make [H6213] windows [H699] in heaven [H8064] , might this thing [H1697] be? And he said [H559] , Behold, thou shalt see [H7200] [it] with thine eyes [H5869] , but shalt not eat [H398] thereof.(a lord: Heb. a lord which belonged to the king leaning upon his hand)

7:3 And there were four [H702] leprous [H6879] men [H582] at the entering in [H6607] of the gate [H8179] : and they said [H559] one [H376] to another [H7453] , Why sit [H3427] we here until we die [H4191] ?

7:4 If we say [H559] , We will enter [H935] into the city [H5892] , then the famine [H7458] [is] in the city [H5892] , and we shall die [H4191] there: and if we sit still [H3427] here, we die [H4191] also. Now therefore come [H3212] , and let us fall [H5307] unto the host [H4264] of the Syrians [H758] : if they save us alive [H2421] , we shall live [H2421] ; and if they kill [H4191] us, we shall but die [H4191] .

7:5 And they rose up [H6965] in the twilight [H5399] , to go [H935] unto the camp [H4264] of the Syrians [H758] : and when they were come [H935] to the uttermost part [H7097] of the camp [H4264] of Syria [H758] , behold, [there was] no man [H376] there.

7:6 For the Lord [H136] had made the host [H4264] of the Syrians [H758] to hear [H8085] a noise [H6963] of chariots [H7393] , and a noise [H6963] of horses [H5483] , [even] the noise [H6963] of a great [H1419] host [H2428] : and they said [H559] one [H376] to another [H251] , Lo, the king [H4428] of Israel [H3478] hath hired [H7936] against us the kings [H4428] of the Hittites [H2850] , and the kings [H4428] of the Egyptians [H4714] , to come [H935] upon us.

7:7 Wherefore they arose [H6965] and fled [H5127] in the twilight [H5399] , and left [H5800] their tents [H168] , and their horses [H5483] , and their asses [H2543] , even the camp [H4264] as it [was], and fled [H5127] for their life [H5315] .

7:8 And when these lepers [H6879] came [H935] to the uttermost part [H7097] of the camp [H4264] , they went [H935] into one [H259] tent [H168] , and did eat [H398] and drink [H8354] , and carried [H5375] thence silver [H3701] , and gold [H2091] , and raiment [H899] , and went [H3212] and hid [H2934] [it]; and came again [H7725] , and entered [H935] into another [H312] tent [H168] , and carried [H5375] thence [also], and went [H3212] and hid [H2934] [it].

7:9 Then they said [H559] one [H376] to another [H7453] , We do [H6213] not well: this day [H3117] [is] a day [H3117] of good tidings [H1309] , and we hold our peace [H2814] : if we tarry [H2442] till the morning [H1242] light [H216] , some mischief [H5771] will come [H4672] upon us: now therefore come [H3212] , that we may go [H935] and tell [H5046] the king's [H4428] household [H1004] .(some: Heb. we shall find punishment)

7:10 So they came [H935] and called [H7121] unto the porter [H7778] of the city [H5892] : and they told [H5046] them, saying [H559] , We came [H935] to the camp [H4264] of the Syrians [H758] , and, behold, [there was] no man [H376] there, neither voice [H6963] of man [H120] , but horses [H5483] tied [H631] , and asses [H2543] tied [H631] , and the tents [H168] as they [were].

7:11 And he called [H7121] the porters [H7778] ; and they told [H5046] [it] to the king's [H4428] house [H1004] within [H6441] .

7:12 And the king [H4428] arose [H6965] in the night [H3915] , and said [H559] unto his servants [H5650] , I will now shew [H5046] you what the Syrians [H758] have done [H6213] to us. They know [H3045] that we [be] hungry [H7457] ; therefore are they gone out [H3318] of the camp [H4264] to hide [H2247] themselves in the field [H7704] , saying [H559] , When they come out [H3318] of the city [H5892] , we shall catch [H8610] them alive [H2416] , and get [H935] into the city [H5892] .

7:13 And one [H259] of his servants [H5650] answered [H6030] and said [H559] , Let [some] take [H3947] , I pray thee, five [H2568] of the horses [H5483] that remain [H7604] , which are left [H7604] in the city, (behold, they [are] as all the multitude [H1995] of Israel [H3478] that are left [H7604] in it: behold, [I say], they [are] even as all the multitude [H1995] of the Israelites [H3478] that are consumed [H8552] :) and let us send [H7971] and see [H7200] .(in the city: Heb. in it)

7:14 They took [H3947] therefore two [H8147] chariot [H7393] horses [H5483] ; and the king [H4428] sent [H7971] after [H310] the host [H4264] of the Syrians [H758] , saying [H559] , Go [H3212] and see [H7200] .

7:15 And they went [H3212] after [H310] them unto Jordan [H3383] : and, lo, all the way [H1870] [was] full [H4392] of garments [H899] and vessels [H3627] , which the Syrians [H758] had cast away [H7993] in their haste [H2648] . And the messengers [H4397] returned [H7725] , and told [H5046] the king [H4428] .

7:16 And the people [H5971] went out [H3318] , and spoiled [H962] the tents [H4264] of the Syrians [H758] . So a measure [H5429] of fine flour [H5560] was [sold] for a shekel [H8255] , and two measures [H5429] of barley [H8184] for a shekel [H8255] , according to the word [H1697] of the LORD [H3068] .

7:17 And the king [H4428] appointed [H6485] the lord [H7991] on whose hand [H3027] he leaned [H8172] to have the charge of the gate [H8179] : and the people [H5971] trode [H7429] upon him in the gate [H8179] , and he died [H4191] , as the man [H376] of God [H430] had said [H1696] , who spake [H1696] when the king [H4428] came down [H3381] to him.

7:18 And it came to pass as the man [H376] of God [H430] had spoken [H1696] to the king [H4428] , saying [H559] , Two measures [H5429] of barley [H8184] for a shekel [H8255] , and a measure [H5429] of fine flour [H5560] for a shekel [H8255] , shall be to morrow [H4279] about this time [H6256] in the gate [H8179] of Samaria [H8111] :

7:19 And that lord [H7991] answered [H6030] the man [H376] of God [H430] , and said [H559] , Now, behold, [if] the LORD [H3068] should make [H6213] windows [H699] in heaven [H8064] , might such a thing [H1697] be? And he said [H559] , Behold, thou shalt see [H7200] it with thine eyes [H5869] , but shalt not eat [H398] thereof.

7:20 And so it fell out unto him: for the people [H5971] trode [H7429] upon him in the gate [H8179] , and he died [H4191] .
