(Read 2 Kings 6 Part 1 First)

28 But then the king asked, "What is the matter?" She replied, "This woman proposed that we eat my son one day and her son the next.

29 So we cooked my son and ate him. Then the next day I said, `Kill your son so we can eat him,' but she had hidden him."

30 When the king heard this, he tore his clothes in despair. And as the king walked along the wall, the people could see that he was wearing sackcloth underneath next to his skin.

31 "May God kill me if I don't execute Elisha son of Shaphat this very day," the king vowed.

32 Elisha was sitting in his house at a meeting with the leaders of Israel when the king sent a messenger to summon him. But before the messenger arrived, Elisha said to the leaders, "A murderer has sent a man to kill me. When he arrives, shut the door and keep him out. His master will soon follow him."

33 While Elisha was still saying this, the messenger arrived. And the king* said, "It is the LORD who has brought this trouble on us! Why should I wait any longer for the LORD?"1
