Bible: 2 Kings 6:8-12

Elisha Defeats an Army

6:8 Now the king of Syria was at war with Israel. He consulted his advisers, who said, “Invade 1  at such and such 2  a place.” 6:9 But the prophet sent this message to the king of Israel, “Make sure you don’t pass through this place because Syria is invading there.” 6:10 So the king of Israel sent a message to the place the prophet had pointed out, warning it 3  to be on its guard. This happened on several occasions. 4  6:11 This made the king of Syria upset. 5  So he summoned his advisers 6  and said to them, “One of us must be helping the king of Israel.” 7  6:12 One of his advisers said, “No, my master, O king. The prophet Elisha who lives in Israel keeps telling the king of Israel the things you say in your bedroom.”
