One day the prophets said to Elisha, "The place where we meet with you is too small. Why don't we build a new meeting place near the Jordan River? Each of us could get some wood, then we could build it."  "That's a good idea," Elisha replied, "get started." "Aren't you going with us?" one of the prophets asked. "Yes, I'll go," Elisha answered, and he left with them. They went to the Jordan River and began chopping down trees. While one of the prophets was working, his ax head flew off and dropped into the water. "Oh no!" he shouted.  "What shall I do, sir?" he exclaimed to Elisha. "I borrowed that ax!"  "Where did it fall in?" Elisha asked. The prophet pointed to the place, and Elisha cut a stick and threw it into the water at that spot. The ax head floated to the top of the water. “Grab it,” Elisha said. And the man reached out and grabbed it.
