14 When Elisha abecame sick with the illness of which he was to die, Joash the king of Israel came down to him and wept over bhim and said, "1My father, my father, the chariots of Israel and its horsemen!" 15 Elisha said to him, "Take a bow and arrows." So he ctook a bow and arrows. 16 Then he said to the king of Israel, "Put your hand on the bow." And he put his hand on it, then Elisha laid his hands on the king's hands. 17 He said, "Open the window toward the east," and he opened it. Then Elisha said, "Shoot!" And he shot. And he said, "The LORD'S arrow of victory, even the arrow of victory over Aram; for you will ddefeat the Arameans at 2Aphek until you have edestroyed them." 18 Then he said, "Take the arrows," and he took them. And he said to the king of Israel, "Strike the ground," and he struck it three times and fstopped. 19 So 3the man of God was angry with him and said, "You should have struck five or six times, then you would have struck Aram until you would have gdestroyed it. But now you shall strike Aram 4only three times."
