The Miracle Of:

The Multiplication of the widow’s oil



2 King 4:1-7

            The widow of a member of a group of prophets went to Elisha and said, “Sir, my husband had died!  As you know, he was a God-fearing man, but now a man he owed money to has come to take away my two sons as slaves in payment of my husband’s debt.”

            “What shall I do for you?”  he asked. “Tell me, what do you have at home?”

            “Nothing at all, except a small jar of olive oil, “ she answered.

            “Get to your neighbors and borrow as many empty jars as you can, “ Elisha told her.  “Then you and your sons go into the house, close the door, and start pouring oil into the jars.  Set each one aside as soon as it is full.”

            So the woman went into the house with her sons, closed the door, took the small jar of olive oil, and poured oil into the jars as her sons brought them to her.  When they had filled all the jars, she asked if there were any more.  “That was the last one, “ one of her sons answered.  And the olive oil stopped flowing.  She went back to Elisha, the prophet, who said to her, “Sell the olive oil and pay all your debts, and there will be enough money left over you and your sons to live on.”
