2 Kings 8:1-6 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)

Then spoke Elisha unto the woman whose son he had restored to life, saying, “Arise and go, thou and thine household, and sojourn wheresoever thou canst sojourn; for the Lord hath called for a famine, and it shall also come upon the land seven years.”

And the woman arose and did according to the saying of the man of God; and she went with her household and sojourned in the land of the Philistines seven years.

And it came to pass, at the seven years’ end, that the woman returned out of the land of the Philistines; and she went forth to cry unto the king for her house and for her land.

And the king talked with Gehazi the servant of the man of God, saying, “Tell me, I pray thee, all the great things that Elisha hath done.”

And it came to pass, as he was telling the king how he had restored a dead body to life, that behold, the woman, whose son he had restored to life, cried 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 unto her a certain officer, saying, “Restore all that was hers, and all the fruits of the field since the day that she left the land, even until now.”
