Chapter Summary: 2 Kings Chapter 2 Summary

2 Kings Chapter 2 Summary begins with the prophets and the sons of the prophets all gearing up for the departure of Elijah. With the departure of Elijah, Elisha his assistant would become the head prophet.

All the sons of the prophets knew it. Fifty men who were sons of the prophets went to watch Elijah leave from far off. Elijah took Elisha, divided the Jordan and they walked on the dry ground. Elijah asked Elisha if he’d like anything done before he leaves.

Elisha asked for a double portion of Elijah’s spirit to be on him, which was a hard thing to ask according to Elijah. Elijah says to Elisha, if he saw him when he is taken from Elisha, his desire would be granted.

2 Kings Chapter 2 Summary

Then the prophets saw a chariot of fire and horses of fire, which separated them, and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven. Elisha was able to see it. When he came back to shore, the sons of the prophets also watched and witnessed the event, and they said the spirit of Elijah rests on Elisha, and they bowed themselves to Elisha.

The head prophet is like a king.

The sons of the prophets desired of Elisha to go seek Elijah in a mountain or valley thinking the Lord took him and cast him there. But when they went and searched three days, they found nothing.

The chapter ends with village children mocking Elisha’s bald head. Elisha cursed them in the name of the Lord and two female bears came out of the woods and killed 42 of those kids. Don’t mess with a man who has just lost a friend and mentor, as well as who is anointed by the Lord.

This is the summary of 2nd Kings chapter 2.
