Context
The Axe Head Floats

1And the sons of the prophets said to Elisha, Behold now, the place where we dwell with you is too strait for us. 2Let us go, we pray you, to Jordan, and take there every man a beam, and let us make us a place there, where we may dwell. And he answered, Go you. 3And one said, Be content, I pray you, and go with your servants. And he answered, I will go. 4So he went with them. And when they came to Jordan, they cut down wood. 5But as one was felling a beam, the ax head fell into the water: and he cried, and said, Alas, master! for it was borrowed. 6And the man of God said, Where fell it? And he showed him the place. And he cut down a stick, and cast it in thither; and the iron did swim. 7Therefore said he, Take it up to you. And he put out his hand, and took it.
