\\INTRODUCTION TO 2 KINGS 2\\

This chapter relates, how that Elisha accompanied Elijah to several
places, and on the other side Jordan Elijah was taken up from him to
heaven, which occasioned great lamentation in him, \\#2Ki 2:1-12\\,
but having the mantle of Elijah, he divided the waters of Jordan, and
passed over, \\#2Ki 2:13,14\\, and the sons of the prophets at Jericho,
perceiving the spirit of Elijah on him, showed him great respect, and
proposed sending men to seek his master, which they did in vain,
\\#2Ki 2:15-18\\, when he healed the waters at Jericho, at the request
of the men of it, \\#2Ki 2:19-22\\, and the chapter is concluded with
the destruction of forty two children at Bethel by bears, who mocked
him, \\#2Ki 2:23,24\\.
