These chapters in 1 and 2 Kings just have too much going on!

Today I missed: Elisha's double portion, the fifty prophets searching all over the place, the cleansing of the waters of Jericho, and most disappointingly Elisha's showdown with the youths who call him "baldy". See the full chapter if you don't know what I'm talking about there!


keep dis up...God luvs u


Elisha knew that Elijah was going to be taken from him that day....but he didn't want to hear it.....3 The company of the prophets at Bethel came out to Elisha and asked, “Do you know that the Lord is going to take your master from you today?”
“Yes, I know,” Elisha replied, “so be quiet.”
