John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
2 Kings 2:13

He took up also the mantle of Elijah that fell from him
Which he had now no further need of, and Elisha had, having rent his clothes in two; and this falling into his hands was a token of his succeeding him in his office, and that he should have the double portion of his spirit:

and he went back, and stood by the brook of Jordan;
at the place where he and Elijah had passed over together.
