NOTES ON II KINGS 2:15

This Is From The Companion Bible.
II KINGS CHAPTER 2:
 15  And when the sons of the prophets which were  to
view at  Jericho saw him,  they said,  "The  
9spirit   of
Elijah  °doth rest on Elisha."  And they came to meet
him, and bowed themselves to the ground before him.

[ 9 spirit  Hebrew ruach. Appendix 9. Put by Figure of Speech, Metonymy (of Cause) for the gifts and operations of the Spirit of God. (Brought forward from notes on verse 9)]
