And one went out into the field to gather herbs, and found a wild vine, and gathered thereof wild gourds his lap full, and came and shred them
into the pot of pottage: for they knew them
So they poured out for the men to eat. And it came to pass, as they were eating of the pottage, that they cried out, and said, O thou
man of God, there is
death in the pot. And they could not eat thereof
But he said, Then bring meal. And he cast it
into the pot; and he said, Pour out for the people, that they may eat. And there was no harm in the pot.
And there came a man from Baalshalisha, and brought the man of God bread of the firstfruits, twenty loaves of barley, and full ears of corn in the husk thereof. And he said, Give unto the people, that they may eat.
