(76) An angel army

The king of Aram was at war with Israel.
They mobilized their army at several places.
Elisha then warned the king of Israel
not to go near the place for the Arameans are mobilizing
their army there.
The king of Aram became very angry.
He thought someone in his army had informed Israel
his secret plan.
and the king found out it was the prophet Elisha in Israel
who had warned the king of Israel.
Then the king of Aram commanded his troops
to go find Elisha and seize him.
The troops surrounded the city.
When the servant of Elisha woke up in the morning,
and saw the army around the city,
he cried out to Elisha,
"What do we do now?"
"Don't be afraid."
Elisha calmed the servant.
Elisha prayed to God to open the servant's eyes.
and When the servant looked up,
he saw the that the hillside around Elisha was filled with
army of fire.
Elisha also prayed,
"God, please, make the army of Aram blind"
and God did as Elisha asked.
Then Elisha led them to Samaria.
Instead of killng them all,
Elisha urged the king of Israel not to kill them and just send them home.
After that, the Aramean stayed away from the land of Israel.
