2 Kings 6:1-7 New International Version

The Axe Head Made to Float

6 1  The company of the prophets said to Elisha, "Look, the place where we meet with you is too small for us. 2  Let 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." 3  Then one of them said, "Won't you please come with your servants?" "I will," Elisha replied. 4  And he went with them. They went to the Jordan and began to cut down trees. 5  As 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!" 6  The 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.
