The Shunammite's Land Restored
Then Elisha spoke to the woman a whose son he had restored to life, saying, "Arise and go, you and your household, and stay wherever you can; for the LORD b has called for a c famine, and furthermore, it will come upon the land for seven years."
So the woman arose and did according to the saying of the man of God, and she went with her household and dwelt in the land of the Philistines seven years.
It came to pass, at the end of seven years, that the woman returned from the land of the Philistines; and she went to make an appeal to the king for her house and for her land.
Then the king talked with d Gehazi, the servant of the man of God, saying, "Tell me, please, all the great things Elisha has done."
Now it happened, as he was telling the king how he had restored the dead to life, that there was the woman whose son he had e restored to life, appealing to the king for her house and for her land. And Gehazi said, "My lord, O king, this is the woman, and this is her son whom Elisha restored to life."
And when the king asked the woman, she told him. So the king appointed a certain officer for her, saying, "Restore all that was hers, and all the proceeds of the field from the day that she left the land until now."
