19 Now the people of the city said to Elisha, The location of this city is good, as my lord sees; but the water is bad, and the land is unfruitful. 20He said, Bring me a new bowl, and put salt in it. So they brought it to him. 21Then he went to the spring of water and threw the salt into it, and said, Thus says the Lord, I have made this water wholesome; from now on neither death nor miscarriage shall come from it. 22So the water has been wholesome to this day, according to the word that Elisha spoke.
