A man came from Baal Shalishah,1 bringing the man of God twenty loaves2 of barley bread3 baked from the first ripe grain, along with some heads of new grain. "Give it to the people to eat," Elisha said.
"How can I set this before a hundred men?" his servant asked. But Elisha answered, "Give it to the people to eat.4 For this is what the LORD says: 'They will eat and have some left over.5' "
Then he set it before them, and they ate and had some left over, according to the word of the LORD.
