THE FLOATING AXE HEAD

 

2 Kings 6:1-7

1 And the sons of the prophets said unto Elisha, Behold now, the

place where we dwell with thee is too strait for us. 2 Let us go,

we pray thee, unto Jordan, and take thence every man a beam, and

let us make us a place there, where we may dwell. And he answered,

Go ye. 3 And one said, Be content, I pray thee, and go with thy

servants. And he answered, I will go. 4 So he went with them. And

when they came to Jordan, they cut down wood. 5 But as one was

felling a beam, the axe head fell into the water: and he cried,

and said, Alas, master! for it was borrowed. 6 And the man of God

said, Where fell it? And he shewed him the place. And he cut down

a stick, and cast [it] in thither; and the iron did swim. 7

Therefore said he, Take [it] up to thee. And he put out his hand,

and took it.
