An Axhead Floats 1The company of the prophets said to Elisha, “Look, the place where we meet with you is too small for us.

2Let us go to the Jordan, where each of us can get a pole; and let us build a place there for us to meet.” And he said, “Go.”

3Then one of them said, “Won’t you please come with your servants?” “I will,” Elisha replied.

4And he went with them. They went to the Jordan and began to cut down trees.

5As one of them was cutting down a tree, the iron axhead fell into the water. “Oh no, my lord!” he cried out. “It was borrowed!” 6The man of God asked, “Where did it fall?” When he showed him the place, Elisha cut a stick and threw it there, and made the iron float.

7“Lift it out,” he said. Then the man reached out his hand and took it.
