    Maybe the prophet needs some guidence. He might be lost.

    The children of Israel.

    The man of God and all saints should serve the Lord with an aim to beget spiritual children who would accomplish far greater than he has in the power of the indwelling Holy Spirit.

    These are the days of Elijah: Preparing the way of the LORD.
  • Peter A. Okebukola
    Elijah has been taken up to heaven. His "apprentice" Elisha has now mounted the rostrum of a prophet. He was persistent in his request and he got double portion of his master's endowment. This is a message that if we persist in prayers to God our Master and Maker, He will hearken unto our plea according to His will.

    2 kings 2 its teaching me so main things in life. at time I feel like giving up but kings through Elisha is telling me not to in any situation I should have faith like Elisha.
  • LeeAnne
    "children" means anyone younger than the main person being talked about i.e. Elisha. These were young men, adults, not preteens as many might think when someone says "little children". The she bears "tare" this word means to frighten (like scared to death, but not literally die) not maim or kill. The others in the group probably ran as well with a healthy fear of bears.
