She came and told the man of God, and he said, "Go, sell the oil and pay your debts, and you and your sons can live on the rest."
One day Eli'sha went on to Shunem, where a wealthy woman lived, who urged him to eat some food. So whenever he passed that way, he would turn in there to eat food.
And she said to her husband, "Behold now, I perceive that this is a holy man of God, who is continually passing our way.
Let us make a small roof chamber with walls, and put there for him a bed, a table, a chair, and a lamp, so that whenever he comes to us, he can go in there."
One day he came there, and he turned into the chamber and rested there.
And he said to Geha'zi his servant, "Call this Shu'nammite." When he had called her, she stood before him.
And he said to him, "Say now to her, See, you have taken all this trouble for us; what is to be done for you? Would you have a word spoken on your behalf to the king or to the commander of the army?" She answered, "I dwell among my own people."
And he said, "What then is to be done for her?" Geha'zi answered, "Well, she has no son, and her husband is old."
He said, "Call her." And when he had called her, she stood in the doorway.
And he said, "At this season, when the time comes round, you shall embrace a son." And she said, "No, my lord, O man of God; do not lie to your maidservant."
But the woman conceived, and she bore a son about that time the following spring, as Eli'sha had said to her.
