Then Elijah said to him, "Stay here;1 the LORD has sent me to the Jordan."2 And he replied, "As surely as the LORD lives and as you live, I will not leave you."3 So the two of them walked on.
Fifty men of the company of the prophets went and stood at a distance, facing the place where Elijah and Elisha had stopped at the Jordan.
Elijah took his cloak,4 rolled it up and struck5 the water with it. The water divided6 to the right and to the left, and the two of them crossed over on dry7 ground.
