2 Kings 4:1-7

The Widow's Oil

1 Now a certain woman of the wives of 1the sons of the prophets cried out to Elisha, "Your servant my husband is dead, and you know that your servant feared the LORD; and 2the creditor has come to take my two children to be his slaves."
2 Elisha said to her, "What shall I do for you? Tell me, what do you have in the house?" And she said, "Your maidservant has nothing * in the house except * 3a jar of oil."
3 Then he said, "Go, borrow vessels at large for yourself from all your neighbors, even empty vessels; do not get a few.
4 "And you shall go in and shut the door behind you and your sons, and pour out into all these vessels, and you shall set aside what is full."
5 So she went from him and shut the door behind her and her sons; they were bringing the vessels to her and she poured.
6 When 4the vessels were full, she said to her son, "Bring me another vessel." And he said to her, "There is not one vessel more." And the oil stopped.
7 Then she came and told 5the man of God. And he said, "Go, sell the oil and pay your debt, and you and your sons can live on the rest."
