And the sons of the prophetssaiduntoElisha, Behold now, the place where we dwell with thee is too strait for us.
Let us go , we pray thee, unto Jordan, and take thence every manabeam, and let us make us a place there, where we may dwell . And he answered , Go ye.
And onesaid , Be content , I pray thee, and go with thy servants. And he answered , I will go .
So he went with them. And when they came to Jordan, they cut downwood.5
But as one was felling a beam, the axe headafell into the water: and he cried , and said , Alas,master! for it was borrowed .
And the man of Godsaid , Wherefell it? And he shewed him the place. And he cut down a stick, and cast it in thither; and the iron did swim .
Therefore said he, Take it up to thee. And he put out his hand, and took it.
