2 Kings 6:1-7Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)
The Floating Ax Head
6 The sons of the prophets said to Elisha, “Please notice that the place where we live under your supervision[a] is too small for us. 2 Please let us go to the Jordan where we can each get a log and can build ourselves a place to live there.”
“Go,” he said.
3 Then one said, “Please come with your servants.”
“I’ll come,” he answered.
4 So he went with them, and when they came to the Jordan, they cut down trees. 5 As one of them was cutting down a tree, the iron ax head fell into the water, and he cried out, “Oh, my master, it was borrowed!”
6 Then the man of God asked, “Where did it fall?”
When he showed him the place, the man of God cut a stick, threw it there, and made the iron float. 7 Then he said, “Pick it up.” So he reached out and took it.
