What did Elisha do?

A:The Second book of Kings describes Elisha as the disciple and successor to Elijah. It was in the gift of Elijah to grant his supernatural powers to his companion and protege, Elisha. There is no suggestion that either Elijah or Elisha thought of asking God whether this was to be, and Elisha soon demonstrated that he had these powers by becoming the third person, after Joshua and Elijah, to divide the waters of the Jordan. In an episode remarkably like one earlier attributed to Elijah, Elisha made a pot of oil into one that never emptied, no matter how much was poured from it (2 Kings 4:3-7). Later, just as the woman friend in whose home Elijah was staying had accused Elijah of bringing evil that caused the death of her son, so a woman friend in whose home Elisha often stayed, accused him of deceiving her, after her son had died. And just as Elijah lay on top of the son to revive him, so Elisha lay on top of the other son to revive him (2 Kings 4:28-35). These episodes seem to be a retelling, in a slightly different context, of the stories already told about Elijah.One story about Elisha (2 Kings 2:23-24) does no credit either to Elisha or his God - he cursed in the name of God 42 little children who had laughed at his bald head, whereupon the children were mauled by wild bears.A:Elisha the prophet did many things, but the main ones are raising the widows son, who died. And healing of Nahaman from leprosy , he was told to dip himself 7 times in the river Jordan.
