2 Kings 7:1–7
*Then Elisha said, Hear ye the word of the Lord; Thus saith the Lord, aTo morrow about this time shall a measure of fine flour be sold for a shekel, and two measures of barley for a shekel, in the gate of Samaria. 2 Then b†a lord on whose hand the king leaned answered the man of God, and said, Behold, cif the Lord would make windows in heaven, might this thing be? And he said, Behold, thou shalt see it with thine eyes, but shalt not eat thereof.
3 And there were four leprous men dat the entering in of the gate: and they said one to another, Why sit we here until we die? 4 If we say, We will enter into the city, then the famine is in the city, and we shall die there: and if we sit still here, we die also. Now therefore come, and let us fall unto the host of the Syrians: if they save us alive, we shall live; and if they kill us, we shall but die. 5 And they rose up in ethe twilight, to go unto the camp of the Syrians: and when they were come to the uttermost part of the camp of Syria, behold, there was no man there. 6 For the Lord had made the host of the Syrians fto hear a noise of chariots, and a noise of horses, even the noise of a great host: and they said one to another, Lo, the king of Israel hath hired against us gthe kings of the Hittites, and the kings of the Egyptians, to come upon us. 7 hWherefore they arose and fled in ethe twilight, and left their tents, and their horses, and their asses, even the camp ias it was, and fled for their life.
