2 Kings 2:9-12

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.
