SHUTTING THE DOOR

Unto the man of God a widow came,Burdened with debt and fearful for her sons.Elisha questioned, then in simple wordsHe gave her clear instructions, which includeThat brief injunction, "Thou shalt shut the door."And when his orders were obeyed, and sheHad shut the door, the oil was duly poured.Behold, her need was met abundantly.

A Shunem woman in her sore distressLaid on the prophet's bed her only child,And (so the record reads) she left the room"And shut the door upon him, and went out."Then as, in answer to her loyal faith,The prophet came and entered in the roomWhere the lad lay, "he shut the door and prayedUnto the Lord." The child was thus restored.
