|2 Kings 6:31-32 |
31 Then he said, "God do so and more also to me, if the head of Elisha the son of Shaphat remains on him this day."
32 Now Elisha sat in his house, and the elders sat with him. And the king sent a man ahead of him [to cut off his head]. But before the messenger came to him, he said to the elders, "Do you see how this son of a murderer [Jezebel] has sent to cut off my head? When the messenger comes, shut the door and hold him fast at the door. Are not the sound of his master's footsteps just behind him?"
