1 Kings 19:19-21
The Call of Elisha19So he departed from there and found Elisha the son of Shaphat, who was plowing with twelve yoke of oxen in front of him, and he was with the twelfth. Elijah passed by him and cast ahis cloak upon him. 20And he left the oxen and ran after Elijah and said, b“Let me kiss my father and my mother, and then I will follow you.” And he said to him, “Go back again, for what have I done to you?” 21And he returned from following him and took the yoke of oxen and sacrificed them and boiled their flesh cwith the yokes of the oxen and gave it to the people, and they ate. Then he arose and went after Elijah and assisted him.
