Elisha said to the woman whose son he had restored to life,a "Get ready, you and your household, and go and live as a foreigner wherever you can. For the Lord has announced a seven-year famine, and it has already come to the land."
So the woman got ready and did what the man of God said. She and her household lived as foreigners in the land of the Philistines for seven years.
When the woman returned from the land of the Philistines at the end of seven years, she went to appeal to the king for her house and field.
The king had been speaking to Gehazi, the servant of the man of God, saying, "Tell me all the great things Elisha has done."
While he was telling the king how Elisha restored the dead [son] to life, the woman whose son he had restored to life came to appeal to the king for her house and field. So Gehazi said, "My lord the king, this is the woman and this is the son Elisha restored to life."
When the king asked the woman, she told him the story. So the king appointed a court official for her, saying, "Restore all that was hers, along with all the income from the field from the day she left the country until now."
