Read 2 Kings 2:23-25. Then imagine asking Jesus of Nazareth, “What’s your interpretation and application of this anecdote?” (Luke 2:46-47; 24:27).


Elisha was traveling to the house of God

He encountered a jeering small boy squad

42 they numbered

Then the She-bears lumbered

And upon the small boys they gnawed

A limerick based on 2 Kings 2:23-25
