Elisha’s Miracle from II Kings chapter 6

Greatly agitated about this matter, the king of Aram summoned his officers and said to them, “Tell me! Who of us is on the side of the king of Israel?”

“No one, my lord king,” said one of the officers. “Elisha, that prophet in Israel, tells the king of Israel the very words you speak in your bedroom.”

“Go find out where he is,” he said, “so that I can have him seized.” It was reported to him that [Elisha] was in Dothan; so he sent horses and chariots there and a strong force. They arrived at night and encircled the town.

When the attendant of the prophet of the L-rd rose early and went outside, he saw a force, with horses and chariots, surrounding the town. “Alas, master, what shall we do?” his servant asked him.

“Have no fear,” he replied. “There are more on our side than on theirs.”

Then Elisha prayed: “Hashem, open his eyes and let him see.” And Hashem opened the servant’s eyes and he saw the hills all around Elisha covered with horses and chariots of fire.

[The Arameans] came down against him, and Elisha prayed to Hashem: “Please strike this people with hallucinations.” And they were struck with hallucinations, as Elisha had asked.

Elisha said to them, “This is not the road, and that is not the town; follow me, and I will lead you to the man you want.” And he led them to Samaria.

When they entered Shomron, Elisha said, “Hashem, open the eyes of these men so that they may see.” Hashem opened their eyes and they saw that they were inside Shomron.

When the king of Israel saw them, he said to Elisha, “Father, shall I strike them down?”
