2 Kings 4:8-17

The Shunammite Woman

8 Now there came a day when Elisha passed over to 1Shunem, where there was a prominent woman, and she persuaded him to eat food. And so it was, as often as he passed by, he turned in there to eat food.
9 She said to her husband, "Behold now, I perceive that this is a holy 2man of God passing by us continually.
10 "Please, let us 3make a little walled upper chamber and let us set a bed for him there, and a table and a chair and a lampstand; and it shall be, when he comes to us, that he can turn in there."
11 One day he came there and turned in to the upper chamber and rested *.
12 Then he said to 4Gehazi his servant, "Call this Shunammite." And when he had called her, she stood before him.
13 He said to him, "Say now to her, 'Behold, you have been careful for us with all this care; what can I do for you? Would you be spoken for to the king or to the captain of the army?' " And she answered, "I live among my own people."
14 So he said, "What then is to be done for her?" And Gehazi answered, "Truly she has no son and her husband is old."
15 He said, "Call her." When he had called her, she stood in the doorway.
16 Then he said, "5At this season next year you will embrace a son." And she said, "No, my lord, O man of God, 6do not lie to your maidservant."
17 The woman conceived and bore a son at that season the next year, as Elisha had said to her.
