Mfumu wa bena Silya aye Benehadada, watwajijile kulukuka bena Isalela. Bino ngauzhi Elisha kimye kyonse wajimunangako mfumu wa bena Isalela. Kino kyamulengelanga kupuluka. Onkao mambo, Benehadada wafuukwilepo kukwata Elisha. Byo aumvwine kuba’mba Elisha uji mu muzhi wa Dotanyi, watumine bashilikale ba bena Silya kuya na kumukwata.

Bashilikale ba bena Silya bafikile ku Dotanyi bufuku. Juba jalondejilepo lukelo, kalume wa kwa Elisha byo alupukile pangye, wamwene nzhita ikatampe ya bashilikale yazhokolokele muzhi. Waumvwine bingi moyo ne kubijika’mba: ‘Ba Elisha, tusa kuba byepi?’ Elisha wamwambijile’mba: ‘Atweba tuji na bavula kukila bo baji nabo.’ Pa kyonka kino kimye, Yehoba walengejile kalume wa kwa Elisha kumona bambili ne makalaki a nkondo a mujilo pa mitumba yazhokolokele muzhi.

Bashilikale ba bena Silya byo bakebele’mba bakwate Elisha, walombele’mba: ‘Anweba Yehoba, napopwelapo pofulai meso a bano  bashilikale.’ Ponkapotu nangwa kya kuba bamwenenga, bashilikale kechi bayukile ko bajinga ne. Elisha waambijile bashilikale’mba: ‘Uno muzhi ye mujimo kechi iye ne. Ndondelai, nsa kwimutwala ku mwanamulume ye mubena kukeba.’ Bano bashilikale balondejile Elisha kufika ne ku Samaliya kwaikalanga mfumu wa bena Isalela.

Bena Silya kechi bayukile kyamwekelenga ne. Mfumu wa bena Isalela waipwizhe Elisha amba: ‘Nebatape nyi?’ Nanchi Elisha walangulukilenga’mba pano ke kimye kyawama kya kwipaya bantu bakebelenga kumwipaya nyi? Ine. Elisha waambile’mba: ‘Kwibatapa ne. Bapai kajo baje apa bino mwibambile bayenga.’ Kepo mfumu ebanengezhejile kijiilo kikatampe ne kwibambila’mba bayenga ku mazubo abo.
