John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
2 Kings 2:15

And when the sons of the prophets, which were to view at
Jericho, saw him
Who went out from thence towards Jordan, to have a sight if they could of the assumption of Elijah; these, when they saw Elisha come over Jordan, the waters being parted by him:

they said, the spirit of Elijah doth rest on Elisha;
or he has the same power and spirit to work miracles as he had, which they discerned by his dividing the waters of Jordan with his mantle:

and they came to meet him, and bowed themselves to the ground before
him;
in reverence of him as their master, in the room of Elijah.
