1 καὶ γυνὴ μία ἀπὸ τῶν υἱῶν τῶν προφητῶν ἐβόα πρὸς Ελισαιε λέγουσα ὁ δοῦλός σου ὁ ἀνήρ μου ἀπέθανεν καὶ σὺ ἔγνως ὅτι δοῦλος ἦν φοβούμενος τὸν κύριον καὶ ὁ δανιστὴς ἦλθεν λαβεῖν τοὺς δύο υἱούς μου ἑαυτῷ εἰς δούλους 2 καὶ εἶπεν Ελισαιε τί ποιήσω σοι ἀνάγγειλόν μοι τί ἐστίν σοι ἐν τῷ οἴκῳ ἡ δὲ εἶπεν οὐκ ἔστιν τῇ δούλῃ σου οὐθὲν ἐν τῷ οἴκῳ ὅτι ἀλ{L'} ἢ ὃ ἀλείψομαι ἔλαιον 3 καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς αὐτήν δεῦρο αἴτησον σαυτῇ σκεύη ἔξωθεν παρὰ πάντων τῶν γειτόνων σου σκεύη κενά μὴ ὀλιγώσῃς 4 καὶ εἰσελεύσῃ καὶ ἀποκλείσεις τὴν θύραν κατὰ σοῦ καὶ κατὰ τῶν υἱῶν σου καὶ ἀποχεεῖς εἰς τὰ σκεύη ταῦτα καὶ τὸ πληρωθὲν ἀρεῖς 5 καὶ ἀπῆλθεν πα{R'} αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐποίησεν οὕτως καὶ ἀπέκλεισεν τὴν θύραν κα{T'} αὐτῆς καὶ κατὰ τῶν υἱῶν αὐτῆς αὐτοὶ προσήγγιζον πρὸς αὐτήν καὶ αὐτὴ ἐπέχεεν 6 ἕως ἐπλήσθησαν τὰ σκεύη καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς τοὺς υἱοὺς αὐτῆς ἐγγίσατε ἔτι πρός με σκεῦος καὶ εἶπον αὐτῇ οὐκ ἔστιν ἔτι σκεῦος καὶ ἔστη τὸ ἔλαιον 7 καὶ ἦλθεν καὶ ἀπήγγειλεν τῷ ἀνθρώπῳ τοῦ θεοῦ καὶ εἶπεν Ελισαιε δεῦρο καὶ ἀπόδου τὸ ἔλαιον καὶ ἀποτείσεις τοὺς τόκους σου καὶ σὺ καὶ οἱ υἱοί σου ζήσεσθε ἐν τῷ ἐπιλοίπῳ ἐλαίῳ 1 There was a woman once that appealed to Eliseus for aid; her husband had been among the disciples of the prophets. Master, she said, thou knewest my husband for a faithful servant of thine, and one that feared the Lord. Now he is dead, and here is a creditor of mine that will come and take away my two sons, to be his bondsmen. 2 What wouldst thou have me do for thee? asked Eliseus. How much hast thou by thee? My lord, she answered, I have nothing left in my house at all but a drop of oil to anoint myself with. 3 Go then, said he, and borrow empty jars from all thy neighbours, and do not stint thyself. 4 Then go home, and lock the door on thyself and thy two sons within; fill all these jars with the oil, and set them aside when they are full. 5 So the woman went, and locked the door on herself and her two sons, and they began holding out the jars for her, while she filled them. 6 When she had filled them, and, asking one of her sons for a fresh jar, was told that he had no more, the oil gave out. 7 So she came and told her story to the servant of God, and he said, Go and sell the oil, and pay thy creditor; what is left shall provide thee and thy sons with a living. 1 Mulier autem quædam de uxoribus prophetarum clamabat ad Eliseum, dicens: Servus tuus vir meus mortuus est, et tu nosti quia servus tuus fuit timens Dominum: et ecce creditor venit ut tollat duos filios meos ad serviendum sibi. 2 Cui dixit Eliseus: Quid vis ut faciam tibi? dic mihi, quid habes in domo tua? At illa respondit: Non habeo ancilla tua quidquam in domo mea, nisi parum olei quo ungar. 3 Cui ait: Vade, pete mutuo ab omnibus vicinis tuis vasa vacua non pauca, 4 et ingredere, et claude ostium tuum cum intrinsecus fueris tu, et filii tui: et mitte inde in omnia vasa hæc, et cum plena fuerint, tolles. 5 Ivit itaque mulier, et clausit ostium super se, et super filios suos: illi offerebant vasa, et illa infundebat. 6 Cumque plena fuissent vasa, dixit ad filium suum: Affer mihi adhuc vas. Et ille respondit: Non habeo. Stetitque oleum. 7 Venit autem illa, et indicavit homini Dei. Et ille: Vade, inquit, vende oleum, et redde creditori tuo: tu autem, et filii tui vivite de reliquo.
8 καὶ ἐγένετο ἡμέρα καὶ διέβη Ελισαιε εἰς Σουμαν καὶ ἐκεῖ γυνὴ μεγάλη καὶ ἐκράτησεν αὐτὸν φαγεῖν ἄρτον καὶ ἐγένετο ἀ{F'} ἱκανοῦ τοῦ εἰσπορεύεσθαι αὐτὸν ἐξέκλινεν τοῦ ἐκεῖ φαγεῖν 9 καὶ εἶπεν ἡ γυνὴ πρὸς τὸν ἄνδρα αὐτῆς ἰδοὺ δὴ ἔγνων ὅτι ἄνθρωπος τοῦ θεοῦ ἅγιος οὗτος διαπορεύεται ἐ{F'} ἡμᾶς διὰ παντός 10 ποιήσωμεν δὴ αὐτῷ ὑπερῷον τόπον μικρὸν καὶ θῶμεν αὐτῷ ἐκεῖ κλίνην καὶ τράπεζαν καὶ δίφρον καὶ λυχνίαν καὶ ἔσται ἐν τῷ εἰσπορεύεσθαι πρὸς ἡμᾶς καὶ ἐκκλινεῖ ἐκεῖ 11 καὶ ἐγένετο ἡμέρα καὶ εἰσῆλθεν ἐκεῖ καὶ ἐξέκλινεν εἰς τὸ ὑπερῷον καὶ ἐκοιμήθη ἐκεῖ 12 καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς Γιεζι τὸ παιδάριον αὐτοῦ κάλεσόν μοι τὴν Σωμανῖτιν ταύτην καὶ ἐκάλεσεν αὐτήν καὶ ἔστη ἐνώπιον αὐτοῦ 13 καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ εἰπὸν δὴ πρὸς αὐτήν ἰδοὺ ἐξέστησας ἡμῖν πᾶσαν τὴν ἔκστασιν ταύτην τί δεῖ ποιῆσαί σοι εἰ ἔστιν λόγος σοι πρὸς τὸν βασιλέα ἢ πρὸς τὸν ἄρχοντα τῆς δυνάμεως ἡ δὲ εἶπεν ἐν μέσῳ τοῦ λαοῦ μου ἐγώ εἰμι οἰκῶ 14 καὶ εἶπεν τί δεῖ ποιῆσαι αὐτῇ καὶ εἶπεν Γιεζι τὸ παιδάριον αὐτοῦ καὶ μάλα υἱὸς οὐκ ἔστιν αὐτῇ καὶ ὁ ἀνὴρ αὐτῆς πρεσβύτης 15 καὶ ἐκάλεσεν αὐτήν καὶ ἔστη παρὰ τὴν θύραν 16 καὶ εἶπεν Ελισαιε πρὸς αὐτήν εἰς τὸν καιρὸν τοῦτον ὡς ἡ ὥρα ζῶσα σὺ περιειληφυῖα υἱόν ἡ δὲ εἶπεν μή κύριέ μου μὴ διαψεύσῃ τὴν δούλην σου 17 καὶ ἐν γαστρὶ ἔλαβεν ἡ γυνὴ καὶ ἔτεκεν υἱὸν εἰς τὸν καιρὸν τοῦτον ὡς ἡ ὥρα ζῶσα ὡς ἐλάλησεν πρὸς αὐτὴν Ελισαιε 8 At another time, Eliseus chanced to be passing through Sunam, and here there was a woman of rank that bade him to a meal, and would take no denial. He must needs go that way often, and ever this woman entertained him, 9 till at last she said to her husband, I find him to be a servant of God, and a holy one, this man that passes our way so often. 10 It would be well if we kept a little room for his use, with bed and table and chair and lamp-stand in it, so that he may pass his time there whenever he visits us. 11 And so, one day, when he had turned in to this room of his, to rest there, 12 he bade his servant Giezi fetch the woman of Sunam; and she, thus summoned, stood awaiting his audience.[1] 13 And Eliseus sent her, through his servant, this message, In all things thou hast bestowed thy constant care on us; what wouldst thou have me do for thee in return? Is there any business of thine, over which thou wouldst have me say a word for thee to the king, or to the commander of his army? And her answer was, Nay, my place is with my own folk. 14 And now, as he wondered what he could do for her, Giezi told him, No need to ask; she has no son, and her husband is an old man. 15 So Eliseus would have her brought to him, and as she stood there in the doorway, 16 When this time of year comes round again, he told her, at this very hour, live thou till then,[2] thou shalt conceive a son. Nay, my lord, she said, wouldst thou, a prophet, trifle thus with thy handmaid? 17 But at that very season of the year, and at the very time Eliseus had foretold, she conceived, and bore a son. 8 Facta est autem quædam dies, et transibat Eliseus per Sunam: erat autem ibi mulier magna, quæ tenuit eum ut comederet panem: cumque frequenter inde transiret, divertebat ad eam ut comederet panem. 9 Quæ dixit ad virum suum: Animadverto quod vir Dei sanctus est iste, qui transit per nos frequenter. 10 Faciamus ergo ei cœnaculum parvum, et ponamus ei in eo lectulum, et mensam, et sellam, et candelabrum, ut cum venerit ad nos, maneat ibi. 11 Facta est ergo dies quædam, et veniens divertit in cœnaculum, et requievit ibi. 12 Dixitque ad Giezi puerum suum: Voca Sunamitidem istam. Qui cum vocasset eam, et illa stetisset coram eo, 13 dixit ad puerum suum: Loquere ad eam: Ecce, sedule in omnibus ministrasti nobis: quid vis ut faciam tibi? numquid habes negotium, et vis ut loquar regi, sive principi militiæ? Quæ respondit: In medio populi mei habito. 14 Et ait: Quid ergo vult ut faciam ei? Dixitque Giezi: Ne quæras: filium enim non habet, et vir ejus senex est. 15 Præcepit itaque ut vocaret eam: quæ cum vocata fuisset, et stetisset ante ostium, 16 dixit ad eam: In tempore isto, et in hac eadem hora, si vita comes fuerit, habebis in utero filium. At illa respondit: Noli quæso, domine mi vir Dei, noli mentiri ancillæ tuæ. 17 Et concepit mulier, et peperit filium in tempore, et in hora eadem, qua dixerat Eliseus.
18 καὶ ἡδρύνθη τὸ παιδάριον καὶ ἐγένετο ἡνίκα ἐξῆλθεν τὸ παιδάριον πρὸς τὸν πατέρα αὐτοῦ πρὸς τοὺς θερίζοντας 19 καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς τὸν πατέρα αὐτοῦ τὴν κεφαλήν μου τὴν κεφαλήν μου καὶ εἶπεν τῷ παιδαρίῳ ἆρον αὐτὸν πρὸς τὴν μητέρα αὐτοῦ 20 καὶ ἦρεν αὐτὸν πρὸς τὴν μητέρα αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐκοιμήθη ἐπὶ τῶν γονάτων αὐτῆς ἕως μεσημβρίας καὶ ἀπέθανεν 21 καὶ ἀνήνεγκεν αὐτὸν καὶ ἐκοίμισεν αὐτὸν ἐπὶ τὴν κλίνην τοῦ ἀνθρώπου τοῦ θεοῦ καὶ ἀπέκλεισεν κα{T'} αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐξῆλθεν 22 καὶ ἐκάλεσεν τὸν ἄνδρα αὐτῆς καὶ εἶπεν ἀπόστειλον δή μοι ἓν τῶν παιδαρίων καὶ μίαν τῶν ὄνων καὶ δραμοῦμαι ἕως τοῦ ἀνθρώπου τοῦ θεοῦ καὶ ἐπιστρέψω 23 καὶ εἶπεν τί ὅτι σὺ πορεύῃ πρὸς αὐτὸν σήμερον οὐ νεομηνία οὐδὲ σάββατον ἡ δὲ εἶπεν εἰρήνη 24 καὶ ἐπέσαξεν τὴν ὄνον καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς τὸ παιδάριον αὐτῆς ἄγε πορεύου μὴ ἐπίσχῃς μοι τοῦ ἐπιβῆναι ὅτι ἐὰν εἴπω σοι 18 The child grew to boyhood, and one day, when he had gone out to be with his father where they were reaping the corn, 19 he told his father, My head aches, my head aches sorely. His father bade one of the servants carry him back to his mother; 20 carry him back he did, and brought him to his mother, and she nursed him on her lap till noon came, but at noon he died. 21 Thereupon she carried him up and laid him on the prophet’s own bed, and shut the door on him; then went out 22 and called her husband, and asked to have one of the servants with her, and an ass; she must go and see the prophet with all speed, and with all speed return. 23 Why, said he, what means this journey of thine? This is no feast of the new moon, no sabbath day. But she answered, Go I must. 24 Then she saddled the ass, and bade the servant lead on, and that in haste; let him lose no time over the journey, and wait ever on her bidding. 18 Crevit autem puer: et cum esset quædam dies, et egressus isset ad patrem suum, ad messores, 19 ait patri suo: Caput meum doleo, caput meum doleo. At ille dixit puero: Tolle, et duc eum ad matrem suam. 20 Qui cum tulisset, et duxisset eum ad matrem suam, posuit eum illa super genua sua usque ad meridiem, et mortuus est. 21 Ascendit autem, et collocavit eum super lectulum hominis Dei, et clausit ostium: et egressa, 22 vocavit virum suum, et ait: Mitte mecum, obsecro, unum de pueris, et asinam, ut excurram usque ad hominem Dei, et revertar. 23 Qui ait illi: Quam ob causam vadis ad eum? hodie non sunt calendæ, neque sabbatum. Quæ respondit: Vadam. 24 Stravitque asinam, et præcepit puero: Mina, et propera: ne mihi moram facias in eundo: et hoc age quod præcipio tibi.
25 δεῦρο καὶ πορεύσῃ καὶ ἐλεύσῃ πρὸς τὸν ἄνθρωπον τοῦ θεοῦ εἰς τὸ ὄρος τὸ Καρμήλιον καὶ ἐγένετο ὡς εἶδεν Ελισαιε ἐρχομένην αὐτήν καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς Γιεζι τὸ παιδάριον αὐτοῦ ἰδοὺ δὴ ἡ Σωμανῖτις ἐκείνη 26 νῦν δράμε εἰς ἀπαντὴν αὐτῆς καὶ ἐρεῖς εἰ εἰρήνη σοι εἰ εἰρήνη τῷ ἀνδρί σου εἰ εἰρήνη τῷ παιδαρίῳ ἡ δὲ εἶπεν Εἰρήνη 27 καὶ ἦλθεν πρὸς Ελισαιε εἰς τὸ ὄρος καὶ ἐπελάβετο τῶν ποδῶν αὐτοῦ καὶ ἤγγισεν Γιεζι ἀπώσασθαι αὐτήν καὶ εἶπεν Ελισαιε ἄφες αὐτήν ὅτι ἡ ψυχὴ αὐτῆς κατώδυνος αὐτῇ καὶ κύριος ἀπέκρυψεν ἀ{P'} ἐμοῦ καὶ οὐκ ἀνήγγειλέν μοι 28 ἡ δὲ εἶπεν μὴ ᾐτησάμην υἱὸν παρὰ τοῦ κυρίου μου οὐκ εἶπα οὐ πλανήσεις με{T'} ἐμοῦ 29 καὶ εἶπεν Ελισαιε τῷ Γιεζι ζῶσαι τὴν ὀσφύν σου καὶ λαβὲ τὴν βακτηρίαν μου ἐν τῇ χειρί σου καὶ δεῦρο ὅτι ἐὰν εὕρῃς ἄνδρα οὐκ εὐλογήσεις αὐτόν καὶ ἐὰν εὐλογήσῃ σε ἀνήρ οὐκ ἀποκριθήσῃ αὐτῷ καὶ ἐπιθήσεις τὴν βακτηρίαν μου ἐπὶ πρόσωπον τοῦ παιδαρίου 30 καὶ εἶπεν ἡ μήτηρ τοῦ παιδαρίου ζῇ κύριος καὶ ζῇ ἡ ψυχή σου εἰ ἐγκαταλείψω σε καὶ ἀνέστη Ελισαιε καὶ ἐπορεύθη ὀπίσω αὐτῆς 25 So out she went, and found the servant of God on mount Carmel. And he, when he saw her approaching, said to his servant Giezi, That is the woman from Sunam; 26 go to meet her, and ask her if all is well with her, all well, too, with her husband and her son. All is well, she said; 27 but when she reached the servant of God, there on the mountain, she clasped him by the knees. Giezi would have pulled her away, but the servant of God said, Let her alone; here is great anguish of spirit, and I none the wiser; the Lord told me nothing of it. 28 Then she said, My lord, did I not ask to have a son, imploring thee not to cheat me of my hopes? 29 Whereupon he said to Giezi, Gird thyself, and take this staff of mine with thee; go at once, greeting none and returning no greeting by the way, till thou reachest the boy; and lay down my staff on his face. 30 As thou livest, the woman said, and servest a living Lord, I will not part from thee. So he rose up and went with her. 25 Profecta est igitur, et venit ad virum Dei in montem Carmeli: cumque vidisset eam vir Dei e contra, ait ad Giezi puerum suum: Ecce Sunamitis illa. 26 Vade ergo in occursum ejus, et dic ei: Recte ne agitur circa te, et circa virum tuum, et circa filium tuum? Quæ respondit: Recte. 27 Cumque venisset ad virum Dei in montem, apprehendit pedes ejus: et accessit Giezi ut amoveret eam. Et ait homo Dei: Dimitte illam: anima enim ejus in amaritudine est, et Dominus celavit a me, et non indicavit mihi. 28 Quæ dixit illi: Numquid petivi filium a domino meo? numquid non dixi tibi: Ne illudas me? 29 Et ille ait ad Giezi: Accinge lumbos tuos, et tolle baculum meum in manu tua, et vade. Si occurrerit tibi homo, non salutes eum: et si salutaverit te quispiam, non respondeas illi: et pones baculum meum super faciem pueri. 30 Porro mater pueri ait: Vivit Dominus, et vivit anima tua, non dimittam te. Surrexit ergo, et secutus est eam.
31 καὶ Γιεζι διῆλθεν ἔμπροσθεν αὐτῆς καὶ ἐπέθηκεν τὴν βακτηρίαν ἐπὶ πρόσωπον τοῦ παιδαρίου καὶ οὐκ ἦν φωνὴ καὶ οὐκ ἦν ἀκρόασις καὶ ἐπέστρεψεν εἰς ἀπαντὴν αὐτοῦ καὶ ἀπήγγειλεν αὐτῷ λέγων οὐκ ἠγέρθη τὸ παιδάριον 32 καὶ εἰσῆλθεν Ελισαιε εἰς τὸν οἶκον καὶ ἰδοὺ τὸ παιδάριον τεθνηκὸς κεκοιμισμένον ἐπὶ τὴν κλίνην αὐτοῦ 33 καὶ εἰσῆλθεν Ελισαιε εἰς τὸν οἶκον καὶ ἀπέκλεισεν τὴν θύραν κατὰ τῶν δύο ἑαυτῶν καὶ προσηύξατο πρὸς κύριον 34 καὶ ἀνέβη καὶ ἐκοιμήθη ἐπὶ τὸ παιδάριον καὶ ἔθηκεν τὸ στόμα αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ τὸ στόμα αὐτοῦ καὶ τοὺς ὀφθαλμοὺς αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ τοὺς ὀφθαλμοὺς αὐτοῦ καὶ τὰς χεῖρας αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ τὰς χεῖρας αὐτοῦ καὶ διέκαμψεν ἐ{P'} αὐτόν καὶ διεθερμάνθη ἡ σὰρξ τοῦ παιδαρίου 35 καὶ ἐπέστρεψεν καὶ ἐπορεύθη ἐν τῇ οἰκίᾳ ἔνθεν καὶ ἔνθεν καὶ ἀνέβη καὶ συνέκαμψεν ἐπὶ τὸ παιδάριον ἕως ἑπτάκις καὶ ἤνοιξεν τὸ παιδάριον τοὺς ὀφθαλμοὺς αὐτοῦ 36 καὶ ἐξεβόησεν Ελισαιε πρὸς Γιεζι καὶ εἶπεν κάλεσον τὴν Σωμανῖτιν ταύτην καὶ ἐκάλεσεν καὶ εἰσῆλθεν πρὸς αὐτόν καὶ εἶπεν Ελισαιε λαβὲ τὸν υἱόν σου 37 καὶ εἰσῆλθεν ἡ γυνὴ καὶ ἔπεσεν ἐπὶ τοὺς πόδας αὐτοῦ καὶ προσεκύνησεν ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν καὶ ἔλαβεν τὸν υἱὸν αὐτῆς καὶ ἐξῆλθεν 38 καὶ Ελισαιε ἐπέστρεψεν εἰς Γαλγαλα καὶ ὁ λιμὸς ἐν τῇ γῇ καὶ οἱ υἱοὶ τῶν προφητῶν ἐκάθηντο ἐνώπιον αὐτοῦ καὶ εἶπεν Ελισαιε τῷ παιδαρίῳ αὐτοῦ ἐπίστησον τὸν λέβητα τὸν μέγαν καὶ ἕψε ἕψεμα τοῖς υἱοῖς τῶν προφητῶν 39 καὶ ἐξῆλθεν εἷς εἰς τὸν ἀγρὸν συλλέξαι αριωθ καὶ εὗρεν ἄμπελον ἐν τῷ ἀγρῷ καὶ συνέλεξεν ἀ{P'} αὐτῆς τολύπην ἀγρίαν πλῆρες τὸ ἱμάτιον αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐνέβαλεν εἰς τὸν λέβητα τοῦ ἑψέματος ὅτι οὐκ ἔγνωσαν 40 καὶ ἐνέχει τοῖς ἀνδράσιν φαγεῖν καὶ ἐγένετο ἐν τῷ ἐσθίειν αὐτοὺς ἐκ τοῦ ἑψήματος καὶ ἰδοὺ ἀνεβόησαν καὶ εἶπον θάνατος ἐν τῷ λέβητι ἄνθρωπε τοῦ θεοῦ καὶ οὐκ ἠδύναντο φαγεῖν 41 καὶ εἶπεν λάβετε ἄλευρον καὶ ἐμβάλετε εἰς τὸν λέβητα καὶ εἶπεν Ελισαιε πρὸς Γιεζι τὸ παιδάριον ἔγχει τῷ λαῷ καὶ ἐσθιέτωσαν καὶ οὐκ ἐγενήθη ἔτι ἐκεῖ ῥῆμα πονηρὸν ἐν τῷ λέβητι 31 Giezi had gone on before him, and put down the staff on the boy’s face; but no sound came, no sign of life, so he went back to meet his master with the news, The boy did not stir. 32 Then Eliseus went into the house, where the boy lay dead in his bed; 33 and there he shut himself in with the boy, and prayed to the Lord. 34 So, rising from his prayer, he laid himself down on the dead body, mouth to mouth, eyes to eyes, hands to hands, bending down close, till the boy’s flesh grew warm. 35 Then he went away, and walked to the end of the house and back, and now when he mounted the bed and lay down, the boy yawned seven times, and opened his eyes. 36 Then Eliseus sent Giezi to fetch the woman of Sunam, and when she answered the summons, bade her take her son into her arms. 37 So she came up, and fell at his feet, bowing down to the earth; then she took up her son and went out, 38 and Eliseus made his way to Galgal.

There was once a famine in the country, at a time when Eliseus had some of the young prophets staying with him. And he bade one of his servants put on the greatest pot they had, and cook broth for these disciples of his. 39 The man who had gone out afield to gather wild herbs for them found a creeping plant in the woods, from which he filled his lap with wild gourds; and these, when he came home, he shredded into the pot of broth, never enquiring what they were. 40 When the time came for his guests to have their meal, the broth was poured out; but no sooner had they tasted it than they cried out, Death it were, lord prophet, to taste this broth of thine; drink it they might not. 41 Thereupon he would have some flour brought him; brought it was, and when he threw it into the pot and had broth poured out for the company, all bitterness had left it.
31 Giezi autem præcesserat ante eos, et posuerat baculum super faciem pueri, et non erat vox, neque sensus: reversusque est in occursum ejus, et nuntiavit ei, dicens: Non surrexit puer. 32 Ingressus est ergo Eliseus domum, et ecce puer mortuus jacebat in lectulo ejus: 33 ingressusque clausit ostium super se et super puerum, et oravit ad Dominum. 34 Et ascendit, et incubuit super puerum: posuitque os suum super os ejus, et oculos suos super oculos ejus, et manus suas super manus ejus: et incurvavit se super eum, et calefacta est caro pueri. 35 At ille reversus, deambulavit in domo, semel huc atque illuc: et ascendit, et incubuit super eum: et oscitavit puer septies, aperuitque oculos. 36 At ille vocavit Giezi, et dixit ei: Voca Sunamitidem hanc. Quæ vocata, ingressa est ad eum. Qui ait: Tolle filium tuum. 37 Venit illa, et corruit ad pedes ejus, et adoravit super terram: tulitque filium suum, et egressa est. 38 Et Eliseus reversus est in Galgala. Erat autem fames in terra, et filii prophetarum habitabant coram eo. Dixitque uni de pueris suis: Pone ollam grandem, et coque pulmentum filiis prophetarum. 39 Et egressus est unus in agrum ut colligeret herbas agrestes: invenitque quasi vitem silvestrem, et collegit ex ea colocynthidas agri, et implevit pallium suum, et reversus concidit in ollam pulmenti: nesciebat enim quid esset. 40 Infuderunt ergo sociis ut comederent: cumque gustassent de coctione, clamaverunt, dicentes: Mors in olla, vir Dei. Et non potuerunt comedere. 41 At ille: Afferte, inquit, farinam. Cumque tulissent, misit in ollam, et ait: Infunde turbæ, ut comedant. Et non fuit amplius quidquam amaritudinis in olla.
42 καὶ ἀνὴρ διῆλθεν ἐκ Βαιθσαρισα καὶ ἤνεγκεν πρὸς τὸν ἄνθρωπον τοῦ θεοῦ πρωτογενημάτων εἴκοσι ἄρτους κριθίνους καὶ παλάθας καὶ εἶπεν δότε τῷ λαῷ καὶ ἐσθιέτωσαν 43 καὶ εἶπεν ὁ λειτουργὸς αὐτοῦ τί δῶ τοῦτο ἐνώπιον ἑκατὸν ἀνδρῶν καὶ εἶπεν δὸς τῷ λαῷ καὶ ἐσθιέτωσαν ὅτι τάδε λέγει κύριος φάγονται καὶ καταλείψουσιν 44 καὶ ἔφαγον καὶ κατέλιπον κατὰ τὸ ῥῆμα κυρίου 42 Once, too, a man came from Baal-Salisa, bringing with him twenty barley loaves, his first-fruit offering, and nothing besides except some fresh grain in his wallet. Eliseus would have a meal set before the company, 43 and when his servant asked how this would suffice for a hundred mouths, he said again, Set it before the company for their meal; they shall eat, the Lord says, and leave some over. 44 And when he set it before them, eat they did and leave they did; so the Lord’s promise was fulfilled. 42 Vir autem quidam venit de Baalsalisa deferens viro Dei panes primitiarum, viginti panes hordeaceos, et frumentum novum in pera sua. At ille dixit: Da populo, ut comedat. 43 Responditque ei minister ejus: Quantum est hoc, ut apponam centum viris? Rursum ille ait: Da populo, ut comedat: hæc enim dicit Dominus: Comedent, et supererit. 44 Posuit itaque coram eis: qui comederunt, et superfuit juxta verbum Domini.
