Scripture Reference:

Description: This image depicts Kings Jehoshaphat of Judah and Jehoram of Israel seeking counsel from Elisha over whether they should go to war against Moab. At the top the King of Moab offers his son as a burnt-offering on the walls of Kir-hareseth. The prophet Elisha leads the Aramean army into Samaria. In the top left-corner Jehoram stands on the walls of Samaria listening to the complaint of a mother during the siege of Samaria. In the top-right corner a man is trampled in the city gate after the siege ends in fulfillment of Elisha's prophesy. To the left Elisha sends the woman whose son he healed to the land of the Philistines before famine strikes the land. To the right Elisha prophesies as to the fate of King Ben-hadad of Aram.
