And Elijah said unto him, tarry, I pray thee, here
At Jericho, seemingly very desirous to get rid of him, that he might not see his assumption:
for the Lord hath sent me to Jordan:
where passing that he was to be taken up:
and he said,
&c; Elisha swore, as before, he would not leave him:
and they two went on;
to Jordan, which was six miles from Jericho F11.
