1 καὶ γυνὴ μία ἀπὸ τῶν υἱῶν τῶν προφητῶν ἐβόα πρὸς Ελισαιε λέγουσα ὁ δοῦλός σου ὁ ἀνήρ μου ἀπέθανεν καὶ σὺ ἔγνως ὅτι δοῦλος ἦν φοβούμενος τὸν κύριον καὶ ὁ δανιστὴς ἦλθεν λαβεῖν τοὺς δύο υἱούς μου ἑαυτῷ εἰς δούλους 2 καὶ εἶπεν Ελισαιε τί ποιήσω σοι ἀνάγγειλόν μοι τί ἐστίν σοι ἐν τῷ οἴκῳ ἡ δὲ εἶπεν οὐκ ἔστιν τῇ δούλῃ σου οὐθὲν ἐν τῷ οἴκῳ ὅτι ἀλλ' ἢ ὃ ἀλείψομαι ἔλαιον 3 καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς αὐτήν δεῦρο αἴτησον σαυτῇ σκεύη ἔξωθεν παρὰ πάντων τῶν γειτόνων σου σκεύη κενά μὴ ὀλιγώσῃς 4 καὶ εἰσελεύσῃ καὶ ἀποκλείσεις τὴν θύραν κατὰ σοῦ καὶ κατὰ τῶν υἱῶν σου καὶ ἀποχεεῖς εἰς τὰ σκεύη ταῦτα καὶ τὸ πληρωθὲν ἀρεῖς 5 καὶ ἀπῆλθεν παρ' αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐποίησεν οὕτως καὶ ἀπέκλεισεν τὴν θύραν κατ' αὐτῆς καὶ κατὰ τῶν υἱῶν αὐτῆς αὐτοὶ προσήγγιζον πρὸς αὐτήν καὶ αὐτὴ ἐπέχεεν 6 ἕως ἐπλήσθησαν τὰ σκεύη καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς τοὺς υἱοὺς αὐτῆς ἐγγίσατε ἔτι πρός με σκεῦος καὶ εἶπον αὐτῇ οὐκ ἔστιν ἔτι σκεῦος καὶ ἔστη τὸ ἔλαιον 7 καὶ ἦλθεν καὶ ἀπήγγειλεν τῷ ἀνθρώπῳ τοῦ θεοῦ καὶ εἶπεν Ελισαιε δεῦρο καὶ ἀπόδου τὸ ἔλαιον καὶ ἀποτείσεις τοὺς τόκους σου καὶ σὺ καὶ οἱ υἱοί σου ζήσεσθε ἐν τῷ ἐπιλοίπῳ ἐλαίῳ 1 Now a certain woman of the wives of the prophets, cried to Eliseus, saying: Your servant, my husband, is dead, and you know that your servant was one that feared God, and behold the creditor has come to take away my two sons to serve him. 2 And Eliseus said to her: What will you have me do for you? Tell me, what have you in your house? And she answered: I, your handmaid, have nothing in my house but a little oil, to anoint me. 3 And he said to her: Go, borrow of all your neighbours empty vessels, not a few. 4 And go in, and shut your door, when you are within, and your sons: and pour out thereof into all those vessels: and when they are full, take them away. 5 So the woman went, and shut the door upon her, and upon her sons: they brought her the vessels, and she poured in. 6 And when the vessels were full, she said to her son: Bring me yet a vessel. And he answered: I have no more. And the oil stood. 7 And she came, and told the man of God. And he said: Go, sell the oil, and pay your creditor: and you and your sons live of the rest. 1 Mulier autem quædam de uxoribus prophetarum clamabat ad Eliseum, dicens : Servus tuus vir meus mortuus est, et tu nosti quia servus tuus fuit timens Dominum : et ecce creditor venit ut tollat duos filios meos ad serviendum sibi. 2 Cui dixit Eliseus : Quid vis ut faciam tibi? dic mihi, quid habes in domo tua? At illa respondit : Non habeo ancilla tua quidquam in domo mea, nisi parum olei quo ungar. 3 Cui ait : Vade, pete mutuo ab omnibus vicinis tuis vasa vacua non pauca, 4 et ingredere, et claude ostium tuum cum intrinsecus fueris tu, et filii tui : et mitte inde in omnia vasa hæc, et cum plena fuerint, tolles. 5 Ivit itaque mulier, et clausit ostium super se, et super filios suos : illi offerebant vasa, et illa infundebat. 6 Cumque plena fuissent vasa, dixit ad filium suum : Affer mihi adhuc vas. Et ille respondit : Non habeo. Stetitque oleum. 7 Venit autem illa, et indicavit homini Dei. Et ille : Vade, inquit, vende oleum, et redde creditori tuo : tu autem, et filii tui vivite de reliquo.
8 καὶ ἐγένετο ἡμέρα καὶ διέβη Ελισαιε εἰς Σουμαν καὶ ἐκεῖ γυνὴ μεγάλη καὶ ἐκράτησεν αὐτὸν φαγεῖν ἄρτον καὶ ἐγένετο ἀφ' ἱκανοῦ τοῦ εἰσπορεύεσθαι αὐτὸν ἐξέκλινεν τοῦ ἐκεῖ φαγεῖν 9 καὶ εἶπεν ἡ γυνὴ πρὸς τὸν ἄνδρα αὐτῆς ἰδοὺ δὴ ἔγνων ὅτι ἄνθρωπος τοῦ θεοῦ ἅγιος οὗτος διαπορεύεται ἐφ' ἡμᾶς διὰ παντός 10 ποιήσωμεν δὴ αὐτῷ ὑπερῷον τόπον μικρὸν καὶ θῶμεν αὐτῷ ἐκεῖ κλίνην καὶ τράπεζαν καὶ δίφρον καὶ λυχνίαν καὶ ἔσται ἐν τῷ εἰσπορεύεσθαι πρὸς ἡμᾶς καὶ ἐκκλινεῖ ἐκεῖ 11 καὶ ἐγένετο ἡμέρα καὶ εἰσῆλθεν ἐκεῖ καὶ ἐξέκλινεν εἰς τὸ ὑπερῷον καὶ ἐκοιμήθη ἐκεῖ 12 καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς Γιεζι τὸ παιδάριον αὐτοῦ κάλεσόν μοι τὴν Σωμανῖτιν ταύτην καὶ ἐκάλεσεν αὐτήν καὶ ἔστη ἐνώπιον αὐτοῦ 13 καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ εἰπὸν δὴ πρὸς αὐτήν ἰδοὺ ἐξέστησας ἡμῖν πᾶσαν τὴν ἔκστασιν ταύτην τί δεῖ ποιῆσαί σοι εἰ ἔστιν λόγος σοι πρὸς τὸν βασιλέα ἢ πρὸς τὸν ἄρχοντα τῆς δυνάμεως ἡ δὲ εἶπεν ἐν μέσῳ τοῦ λαοῦ μου ἐγώ εἰμι οἰκῶ 14 καὶ εἶπεν τί δεῖ ποιῆσαι αὐτῇ καὶ εἶπεν Γιεζι τὸ παιδάριον αὐτοῦ καὶ μάλα υἱὸς οὐκ ἔστιν αὐτῇ καὶ ὁ ἀνὴρ αὐτῆς πρεσβύτης 15 καὶ ἐκάλεσεν αὐτήν καὶ ἔστη παρὰ τὴν θύραν 16 καὶ εἶπεν Ελισαιε πρὸς αὐτήν εἰς τὸν καιρὸν τοῦτον ὡς ἡ ὥρα ζῶσα σὺ περιειληφυῖα υἱόν ἡ δὲ εἶπεν μή κύριέ μου μὴ διαψεύσῃ τὴν δούλην σου 17 καὶ ἐν γαστρὶ ἔλαβεν ἡ γυνὴ καὶ ἔτεκεν υἱὸν εἰς τὸν καιρὸν τοῦτον ὡς ἡ ὥρα ζῶσα ὡς ἐλάλησεν πρὸς αὐτὴν Ελισαιε 8 And there was a day when Eliseus passed by Sunam: now there was a great woman there, who detained him to eat bread: and as he passed often that way, he turned into her house to eat bread. 9 And she said to her husband: I perceive that this is a holy man of God, who often passes by us. 10 Let us, therefore, make him a little chamber, and put a little bed in it for him, and a table, and a stool, and a candlestick, that when he comes to us he may abide there. 11 Now, there was a certain day, when he came, and turned into the chamber, and rested there. 12 And he said to Giezi, his servant: Call this Sunamitess. And when he had called her, and she stood before him, 13 he said to his servant: Say to her: Behold, you have diligently served us in all things; what will you have me to do for you? Have you any business, and will you, that I speak to the king, or to the general of the army? And she answered: I dwell in the midst of my own people. 14 And he said: What will she then that I do for her? And Giezi said: Do not ask, for she has no son, and her husband is old. 15 Then he bid him call her. And when she was called, and stood before the door, 16 he said to her: At this time, and this same hour, if life be in company, you shall have a son in your womb. But she answered: Do not, I beseech you, my lord, you man of God, do not lie to your handmaid. 17 And the woman conceived, and brought forth a son in the time, and at the same hour that Eliseus had said. 8 Facta est autem quædam dies, et transibat Eliseus per Sunam : erat autem ibi mulier magna, quæ tenuit eum ut comederet panem : cumque frequenter inde transiret, divertebat ad eam ut comederet panem. 9 Quæ dixit ad virum suum : Animadverto quod vir Dei sanctus est iste, qui transit per nos frequenter. 10 Faciamus ergo ei cœnaculum parvum, et ponamus ei in eo lectulum, et mensam, et sellam, et candelabrum, ut cum venerit ad nos, maneat ibi. 11 Facta est ergo dies quædam, et veniens divertit in cœnaculum, et requievit ibi. 12 Dixitque ad Giezi puerum suum : Voca Sunamitidem istam. Qui cum vocasset eam, et illa stetisset coram eo, 13 dixit ad puerum suum : Loquere ad eam : Ecce, sedule in omnibus ministrasti nobis : quid vis ut faciam tibi? numquid habes negotium, et vis ut loquar regi, sive principi militiæ? Quæ respondit : In medio populi mei habito. 14 Et ait : Quid ergo vult ut faciam ei? Dixitque Giezi : Ne quæras : filium enim non habet, et vir ejus senex est. 15 Præcepit itaque ut vocaret eam : quæ cum vocata fuisset, et stetisset ante ostium, 16 dixit ad eam : In tempore isto, et in hac eadem hora, si vita comes fuerit, habebis in utero filium. At illa respondit : Noli quæso, domine mi vir Dei, noli mentiri ancillæ tuæ. 17 Et concepit mulier, et peperit filium in tempore, et in hora eadem, qua dixerat Eliseus.
18 καὶ ἡδρύνθη τὸ παιδάριον καὶ ἐγένετο ἡνίκα ἐξῆλθεν τὸ παιδάριον πρὸς τὸν πατέρα αὐτοῦ πρὸς τοὺς θερίζοντας 19 καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς τὸν πατέρα αὐτοῦ τὴν κεφαλήν μου τὴν κεφαλήν μου καὶ εἶπεν τῷ παιδαρίῳ ἆρον αὐτὸν πρὸς τὴν μητέρα αὐτοῦ 20 καὶ ἦρεν αὐτὸν πρὸς τὴν μητέρα αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐκοιμήθη ἐπὶ τῶν γονάτων αὐτῆς ἕως μεσημβρίας καὶ ἀπέθανεν 21 καὶ ἀνήνεγκεν αὐτὸν καὶ ἐκοίμισεν αὐτὸν ἐπὶ τὴν κλίνην τοῦ ἀνθρώπου τοῦ θεοῦ καὶ ἀπέκλεισεν κατ' αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐξῆλθεν 22 καὶ ἐκάλεσεν τὸν ἄνδρα αὐτῆς καὶ εἶπεν ἀπόστειλον δή μοι ἓν τῶν παιδαρίων καὶ μίαν τῶν ὄνων καὶ δραμοῦμαι ἕως τοῦ ἀνθρώπου τοῦ θεοῦ καὶ ἐπιστρέψω 23 καὶ εἶπεν τί ὅτι σὺ πορεύῃ πρὸς αὐτὸν σήμερον οὐ νεομηνία οὐδὲ σάββατον ἡ δὲ εἶπεν εἰρήνη 24 καὶ ἐπέσαξεν τὴν ὄνον καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς τὸ παιδάριον αὐτῆς ἄγε πορεύου μὴ ἐπίσχῃς μοι τοῦ ἐπιβῆναι ὅτι ἐὰν εἴπω σοι 25 δεῦρο καὶ πορεύσῃ καὶ ἐλεύσῃ πρὸς τὸν ἄνθρωπον τοῦ θεοῦ εἰς τὸ ὄρος τὸ Καρμήλιον καὶ ἐγένετο ὡς εἶδεν Ελισαιε ἐρχομένην αὐτήν καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς Γιεζι τὸ παιδάριον αὐτοῦ ἰδοὺ δὴ ἡ Σωμανῖτις ἐκείνη 26 νῦν δράμε εἰς ἀπαντὴν αὐτῆς καὶ ἐρεῖς εἰ εἰρήνη σοι εἰ εἰρήνη τῷ ἀνδρί σου εἰ εἰρήνη τῷ παιδαρίῳ ἡ δὲ εἶπεν Εἰρήνη 27 καὶ ἦλθεν πρὸς Ελισαιε εἰς τὸ ὄρος καὶ ἐπελάβετο τῶν ποδῶν αὐτοῦ καὶ ἤγγισεν Γιεζι ἀπώσασθαι αὐτήν καὶ εἶπεν Ελισαιε ἄφες αὐτήν ὅτι ἡ ψυχὴ αὐτῆς κατώδυνος αὐτῇ καὶ κύριος ἀπέκρυψεν ἀπ' ἐμοῦ καὶ οὐκ ἀνήγγειλέν μοι 28 ἡ δὲ εἶπεν μὴ ᾐτησάμην υἱὸν παρὰ τοῦ κυρίου μου οὐκ εἶπα οὐ πλανήσεις μετ' ἐμοῦ 29 καὶ εἶπεν Ελισαιε τῷ Γιεζι ζῶσαι τὴν ὀσφύν σου καὶ λαβὲ τὴν βακτηρίαν μου ἐν τῇ χειρί σου καὶ δεῦρο ὅτι ἐὰν εὕρῃς ἄνδρα οὐκ εὐλογήσεις αὐτόν καὶ ἐὰν εὐλογήσῃ σε ἀνήρ οὐκ ἀποκριθήσῃ αὐτῷ καὶ ἐπιθήσεις τὴν βακτηρίαν μου ἐπὶ πρόσωπον τοῦ παιδαρίου 30 καὶ εἶπεν ἡ μήτηρ τοῦ παιδαρίου ζῇ κύριος καὶ ζῇ ἡ ψυχή σου εἰ ἐγκαταλείψω σε καὶ ἀνέστη Ελισαιε καὶ ἐπορεύθη ὀπίσω αὐτῆς 31 καὶ Γιεζι διῆλθεν ἔμπροσθεν αὐτῆς καὶ ἐπέθηκεν τὴν βακτηρίαν ἐπὶ πρόσωπον τοῦ παιδαρίου καὶ οὐκ ἦν φωνὴ καὶ οὐκ ἦν ἀκρόασις καὶ ἐπέστρεψεν εἰς ἀπαντὴν αὐτοῦ καὶ ἀπήγγειλεν αὐτῷ λέγων οὐκ ἠγέρθη τὸ παιδάριον 32 καὶ εἰσῆλθεν Ελισαιε εἰς τὸν οἶκον καὶ ἰδοὺ τὸ παιδάριον τεθνηκὸς κεκοιμισμένον ἐπὶ τὴν κλίνην αὐτοῦ 33 καὶ εἰσῆλθεν Ελισαιε εἰς τὸν οἶκον καὶ ἀπέκλεισεν τὴν θύραν κατὰ τῶν δύο ἑαυτῶν καὶ προσηύξατο πρὸς κύριον 34 καὶ ἀνέβη καὶ ἐκοιμήθη ἐπὶ τὸ παιδάριον καὶ ἔθηκεν τὸ στόμα αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ τὸ στόμα αὐτοῦ καὶ τοὺς ὀφθαλμοὺς αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ τοὺς ὀφθαλμοὺς αὐτοῦ καὶ τὰς χεῖρας αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ τὰς χεῖρας αὐτοῦ καὶ διέκαμψεν ἐπ' αὐτόν καὶ διεθερμάνθη ἡ σὰρξ τοῦ παιδαρίου 35 καὶ ἐπέστρεψεν καὶ ἐπορεύθη ἐν τῇ οἰκίᾳ ἔνθεν καὶ ἔνθεν καὶ ἀνέβη καὶ συνέκαμψεν ἐπὶ τὸ παιδάριον ἕως ἑπτάκις καὶ ἤνοιξεν τὸ παιδάριον τοὺς ὀφθαλμοὺς αὐτοῦ 36 καὶ ἐξεβόησεν Ελισαιε πρὸς Γιεζι καὶ εἶπεν κάλεσον τὴν Σωμανῖτιν ταύτην καὶ ἐκάλεσεν καὶ εἰσῆλθεν πρὸς αὐτόν καὶ εἶπεν Ελισαιε λαβὲ τὸν υἱόν σου 37 καὶ εἰσῆλθεν ἡ γυνὴ καὶ ἔπεσεν ἐπὶ τοὺς πόδας αὐτοῦ καὶ προσεκύνησεν ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν καὶ ἔλαβεν τὸν υἱὸν αὐτῆς καὶ ἐξῆλθεν 18 And the child grew. And on a certain day, when he went out to his father to the reapers, 19 he said to his father: My head aches, my head aches. But he said to his servant. Take him, and carry him to his mother. 20 And when he had taken him, and brought him to his mother, she sat him on her knees, until noon, and then he died. 21 And she went up, and laid him upon the bed of the man of God, and shut the door: and going out, 22 she called her husband, and said: Send with me, I beseech you, one of your servants, and an ass, that I may run to the man of God, and come again. 23 And he said to her: Why do you go to him? To day is neither new moon nor sabbath. She answered: I will go. 24 And she saddled an ass, and commanded her servant: Drive, and make haste, make no stay in going: And do that which I bid you. 25 So she went forward, and came to the man of God, to mount Carmel: and when the man of God saw her coming towards, he said to Giezi, his servant: Behold that Sunamitess. 26 Go, therefore, to meet her, and say to her: Is all well with you, and with your husband, and with your son? And she answered: Well. 27 And when she came to the man of God, to the mount, she caught hold on his feet: and Giezi came to remove her. And the man of God said: Let her alone for her soul is in anguish, and the Lord has hid it from me, and has not told me. 28 And she said to him: Did I ask a son of my lord? Did I not say to you: Do not deceive me? 29 Then he said to Giezi: Gird up your loins, and take my staff in your hand, and go. If any man meet you, salute him not: and if any man salute you, answer him not: and lay my staff upon the face of the child. 30 But the mother of the child said: As the Lord lives, and as your soul lives, I will not leave you. He arose, therefore, and followed her. 31 But Giezi had gone before them, and laid the staff upon the face of the child, and there was no voice nor sense: and he returned to meet him, and told him, saying: The child is not risen. 32 Eliseus, therefore, went into the house, and behold the child lay dead on his bed: 33 And going in, he shut the door upon him, and upon the child, and prayed to the Lord. 34 And he went up, and lay upon the child: and put his mouth upon his mouth, and his eyes upon his eyes, and his hands upon his hands: and he bowed himself upon him, and the child's flesh grew warm. 35 Then he returned and walked in the house, once to and fro: and he went up, and lay upon him: and the child gaped seven times, and opened his eyes. 36 And he called Giezi, and said to him: Call this Sunamitess. And she being called, went in to him: and he said: Take up your son. 37 She came and fell at his feet, and worshipped upon the ground: and took up her son, and went out. 18 Crevit autem puer : et cum esset quædam dies, et egressus isset ad patrem suum, ad messores, 19 ait patri suo : Caput meum doleo, caput meum doleo. At ille dixit puero : Tolle, et duc eum ad matrem suam. 20 Qui cum tulisset, et duxisset eum ad matrem suam, posuit eum illa super genua sua usque ad meridiem, et mortuus est. 21 Ascendit autem, et collocavit eum super lectulum hominis Dei, et clausit ostium : et egressa, 22 vocavit virum suum, et ait : Mitte mecum, obsecro, unum de pueris, et asinam, ut excurram usque ad hominem Dei, et revertar. 23 Qui ait illi : Quam ob causam vadis ad eum? hodie non sunt calendæ, neque sabbatum. Quæ respondit : Vadam. 24 Stravitque asinam, et præcepit puero : Mina, et propera : ne mihi moram facias in eundo : et hoc age quod præcipio tibi. 25 Profecta est igitur, et venit ad virum Dei in montem Carmeli : cumque vidisset eam vir Dei e contra, ait ad Giezi puerum suum : Ecce Sunamitis illa. 26 Vade ergo in occursum ejus, et dic ei : Recte ne agitur circa te, et circa virum tuum, et circa filium tuum? Quæ respondit : Recte. 27 Cumque venisset ad virum Dei in montem, apprehendit pedes ejus : et accessit Giezi ut amoveret eam. Et ait homo Dei : Dimitte illam : anima enim ejus in amaritudine est, et Dominus celavit a me, et non indicavit mihi. 28 Quæ dixit illi : Numquid petivi filium a domino meo? numquid non dixi tibi : Ne illudas me? 29 Et ille ait ad Giezi : Accinge lumbos tuos, et tolle baculum meum in manu tua, et vade. Si occurrerit tibi homo, non salutes eum : et si salutaverit te quispiam, non respondeas illi : et pones baculum meum super faciem pueri. 30 Porro mater pueri ait : Vivit Dominus, et vivit anima tua, non dimittam te. Surrexit ergo, et secutus est eam. 31 Giezi autem præcesserat ante eos, et posuerat baculum super faciem pueri, et non erat vox, neque sensus : reversusque est in occursum ejus, et nuntiavit ei, dicens : Non surrexit puer. 32 Ingressus est ergo Eliseus domum, et ecce puer mortuus jacebat in lectulo ejus: 33 ingressusque clausit ostium super se et super puerum, et oravit ad Dominum. 34 Et ascendit, et incubuit super puerum : posuitque os suum super os ejus, et oculos suos super oculos ejus, et manus suas super manus ejus : et incurvavit se super eum, et calefacta est caro pueri. 35 At ille reversus, deambulavit in domo, semel huc atque illuc : et ascendit, et incubuit super eum : et oscitavit puer septies, aperuitque oculos. 36 At ille vocavit Giezi, et dixit ei : Voca Sunamitidem hanc. Quæ vocata, ingressa est ad eum. Qui ait : Tolle filium tuum. 37 Venit illa, et corruit ad pedes ejus, et adoravit super terram : tulitque filium suum, et egressa est.
38 καὶ Ελισαιε ἐπέστρεψεν εἰς Γαλγαλα καὶ ὁ λιμὸς ἐν τῇ γῇ καὶ οἱ υἱοὶ τῶν προφητῶν ἐκάθηντο ἐνώπιον αὐτοῦ καὶ εἶπεν Ελισαιε τῷ παιδαρίῳ αὐτοῦ ἐπίστησον τὸν λέβητα τὸν μέγαν καὶ ἕψε ἕψεμα τοῖς υἱοῖς τῶν προφητῶν 39 καὶ ἐξῆλθεν εἷς εἰς τὸν ἀγρὸν συλλέξαι αριωθ καὶ εὗρεν ἄμπελον ἐν τῷ ἀγρῷ καὶ συνέλεξεν ἀπ' αὐτῆς τολύπην ἀγρίαν πλῆρες τὸ ἱμάτιον αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐνέβαλεν εἰς τὸν λέβητα τοῦ ἑψέματος ὅτι οὐκ ἔγνωσαν 40 καὶ ἐνέχει τοῖς ἀνδράσιν φαγεῖν καὶ ἐγένετο ἐν τῷ ἐσθίειν αὐτοὺς ἐκ τοῦ ἑψήματος καὶ ἰδοὺ ἀνεβόησαν καὶ εἶπον θάνατος ἐν τῷ λέβητι ἄνθρωπε τοῦ θεοῦ καὶ οὐκ ἠδύναντο φαγεῖν 41 καὶ εἶπεν λάβετε ἄλευρον καὶ ἐμβάλετε εἰς τὸν λέβητα καὶ εἶπεν Ελισαιε πρὸς Γιεζι τὸ παιδάριον ἔγχει τῷ λαῷ καὶ ἐσθιέτωσαν καὶ οὐκ ἐγενήθη ἔτι ἐκεῖ ῥῆμα πονηρὸν ἐν τῷ λέβητι 42 καὶ ἀνὴρ διῆλθεν ἐκ Βαιθσαρισα καὶ ἤνεγκεν πρὸς τὸν ἄνθρωπον τοῦ θεοῦ πρωτογενημάτων εἴκοσι ἄρτους κριθίνους καὶ παλάθας καὶ εἶπεν δότε τῷ λαῷ καὶ ἐσθιέτωσαν 43 καὶ εἶπεν ὁ λειτουργὸς αὐτοῦ τί δῶ τοῦτο ἐνώπιον ἑκατὸν ἀνδρῶν καὶ εἶπεν δὸς τῷ λαῷ καὶ ἐσθιέτωσαν ὅτι τάδε λέγει κύριος φάγονται καὶ καταλείψουσιν 44 καὶ ἔφαγον καὶ κατέλιπον κατὰ τὸ ῥῆμα κυρίου 38 And Eliseus returned to Galgal, and there was a famine in the land, and the sons of the prophets dwelt before him: And he said to one of his servants: Set on the great pot, and boil pottage for the sons of the prophets. 39 And one went out into the field to gather wild herbs: and he found something like a wild vine, and gathered of it wild gourds of the field, and filled his mantle, and coming back, he shred them into the pot of pottage; for he knew not what it was. 40 And they poured it out for their companions to eat: and when they had tasted of the pottage, they cried out, saying: Death is in the pot, O man of God. And they could not eat thereof. 41 But he said: Bring some meal. And when they had brought it, he cast it into the pot, and said: Pour out for the people, that they may eat. And there was now no bitterness in the pot. 42 And a certain man came from Baalsalisa, bringing to the man of God, bread of the firstfruits, twenty loaves of barley, and new corn in his scrip. And he said: Give to the people, that they may eat. 43 And his servant answered him: How much is this, that I should set it before a hundred men? He said again: Give to the people, that they may eat: for thus says the Lord: They shall eat, and there shall be left. 44 So he set it before them: and they ate, and there was left, according to the word of the Lord. 38 Et Eliseus reversus est in Galgala. Erat autem fames in terra, et filii prophetarum habitabant coram eo. Dixitque uni de pueris suis : Pone ollam grandem, et coque pulmentum filiis prophetarum. 39 Et egressus est unus in agrum ut colligeret herbas agrestes : invenitque quasi vitem silvestrem, et collegit ex ea colocynthidas agri, et implevit pallium suum, et reversus concidit in ollam pulmenti : nesciebat enim quid esset. 40 Infuderunt ergo sociis ut comederent : cumque gustassent de coctione, clamaverunt, dicentes : Mors in olla, vir Dei. Et non potuerunt comedere. 41 At ille : Afferte, inquit, farinam. Cumque tulissent, misit in ollam, et ait : Infunde turbæ, ut comedant. Et non fuit amplius quidquam amaritudinis in olla. 42 Vir autem quidam venit de Baalsalisa deferens viro Dei panes primitiarum, viginti panes hordeaceos, et frumentum novum in pera sua. At ille dixit : Da populo, ut comedat. 43 Responditque ei minister ejus : Quantum est hoc, ut apponam centum viris? Rursum ille ait : Da populo, ut comedat : hæc enim dicit Dominus : Comedent, et supererit. 44 Posuit itaque coram eis : qui comederunt, et superfuit juxta verbum Domini.
