you have in your house?" "Your servant has nothing there at all," she said,
"except a little oil." Elisha said, "Go around and ask all your neighbors
for empty jars. Don't ask for just a few. Then go inside and shut the door
behind you and your sons. Pour oil into all the jars, and as each is filled, put
it to one side." She left him and afterward shut the door behind her
and her sons. They brought the jars to her and she kept pouring. When
all the jars were full, she said to her son, "Bring me another one." But he
replied, "There is not a jar left." Then the oil stopped flowing. She went
and told the man of God, and he said, "Go, sell the oil and pay your debts. You
and your sons can live on what is left."
