2 Kings 2:20-22 Amplified Bible (AMP)

20 He said, “Bring me a new jar, and put [a]salt in it.” So they brought it to him. 21 Then Elisha went to the spring of water and threw the salt in it and said, “Thus says the Lord: ‘I [not the salt] have purified and healed these waters; there shall no longer be death or barrenness because of it.’” 22 So the waters have been purified to this day, in accordance with the word spoken by Elisha.


  1. 2 Kings 2:20 Salt was sometimes considered a symbol of God’s faithfulness and His purifying power.
