Elisha Multiplies the Widow's Oil

1Now there cried a certain woman of the wives of the sons of the prophets to Elisha, saying, Your servant my husband is dead; and you know that your servant did fear the LORD: and the creditor is come to take to him my two sons to be slaves. 2And Elisha said to her, What shall I do for you? tell me, what have you in the house? And she said, Your handmaid has not any thing in the house, save a pot of oil. 3Then he said, Go, borrow you vessels abroad of all your neighbors, even empty vessels; borrow not a few. 4And when you are come in, you shall shut the door on you and on your sons, and shall pour out into all those vessels, and you shall set aside that which is full. 5So she went from him, and shut the door on her and on her sons, who brought the vessels to her; and she poured out. 6And it came to pass, when the vessels were full, that she said to her son, Bring me yet a vessel. And he said to her, There is not a vessel more. And the oil stayed. 7Then she came and told the man of God. And he said, Go, sell the oil, and pay your debt, and live you and your children of the rest.
