Horses and Chariots of Fire

21 Now when the king of Israel saw them, he said to Elisha, "My l father, shall I kill them? Shall I kill them?" 22 But he answered, "You shall not kill them. Would you kill those whom you have taken captive with your sword and your bow? m Set food and water before them, that they may eat and drink and go to their master." 23 Then he prepared a great feast for them; and after they ate and drank, he sent them away and they went to their master. So n the bands of Syrian raiders came no more into the land of Israel.
