Elisha, giving leave to the young prophets to enlarge their dwellings, causeth iron to swim. He discloseth the king of Samaria's counsel. The army, which was sent to Dothan to apprehend Elisha, is smitten with blindness. Being brought into Samaria, they are dismissed in peace. The famine in Samaria causeth women to eat their own children. The king sendeth to slay Elisha.
