And the men of the city said unto Elisha, Behold, I pray thee, the situation of this city is
pleasant, as my lord seeth: but the water is
naught, and the ground barren.
And he said, Bring me a new cruse, and put salt therein. And they brought it
And he went forth unto the spring of the waters, and cast the salt in there, and said, Thus saith the LORD, I have healed these waters; there shall not be from thence any more death or barren land
So the waters were healed unto this day, according to the saying of Elisha which he spake.
