Encouragement (Part 1): Week 3, Day 2

Welcome back! In our last study, we read 2 Kings 6:8-23.  This is not necessarily the easiest passage to read and understand,but I'm glad you are sticking with me.  Today we are going to INTERPRET the meaning of the text.

Read through 2 Kings 6:8-23 slowly, absorbing what the words say.

Read through it again, and answer the following questions:
  1. In verse 11, what was the King of Aram enraged about?  What did the King think had happened?
  2. In verse 14, what did the King of Aram decide to do about the prophet Elisha?
  3. In verse 15, how did Elisha's servant react to the army?  How do you think you would have reacted in the same situation?
  4. Verse 16 is a key verse to this passage.  What do you think Elisha was saying here?
  5. What did Elisha pray for in verse 17? In verse 18?
  6. What is the last sentence of verse 23?
Our next study will be the APPLICATION - my favorite part of studying the Scriptures.  I hope you will come back and study with us!
