As they are walking from town to town, Elijah keeps telling Elisha to stay while Elijah goes other places, but every time Elisha goes with him. Then, at the Jordan, Elijah strikes the water with his robe and it splits. Then on the other side, Elijah asks Elisha what he wants before Elijah goes, and Elisha says he wants to do double what Elijah did. Elijah is taken away from earth in a chariot of fire, and the horses are on fire! Then Elisha splits the water on his way back to the city.
