An Ax Blade Floats
The group of the prophets said to Elisha, “Look. The place where we meet with you is too small for us.
We would like to go to the Jordan River. Each of us can get some wood there. We want to build a place there for us to meet.”Elisha said, “Go.”
Then one of them said, “Won’t you please come with us?”“I will,” Elisha replied.
And he went with them.They went to the Jordan River. There they began to cut down trees.
One of them was cutting down a tree. The iron blade of his ax fell into the water. “Oh no, master!” he cried out. “This ax was borrowed!”
The man of God asked, “Where did the blade fall?” He showed Elisha the place. Then Elisha cut a stick and threw it there. That made the iron blade float.
“Take it out of the water,” he said. So the man reached out and took it.
