Bible: 2 Kings 4:38-41
Elisha Makes a Meal Edible
4:38 Now Elisha went back to Gilgal, while there was famine in the land. Some of the prophets were visiting him 1 and he told his servant, “Put the big pot on the fire 2 and boil some stew for the prophets.” 3 4:39 Someone went out to the field to gather some herbs and found a wild vine. 4 He picked some of its fruit, 5 enough to fill up the fold of his robe. He came back, cut it up, and threw the slices 6 into the stew pot, not knowing they were harmful. 7 4:40 The stew was poured out 8 for the men to eat. When they ate some of the stew, they cried out, “Death is in the pot, O prophet!” They could not eat it. 4:41 He said, “Get some flour.” Then he threw it into the pot and said, “Now pour some out for the men so they may eat.” 9 There was no longer anything harmful in the pot.
