This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

Ask what: 2Ki 13:14-19; Num 27:16-23; Deu 34:9; 1Ch 29:18-19; Psa 72:1, Psa 72:20; Luk 24:45-51; Joh 17:9-13; Act 1:8, Act 8:17, Act 20:25-36

Elisha said: Num 11:17, Num 11:25; 1Ki 3:9; 2Ch 1:9-10; Joh 14:12-14, Joh 16:7; 1Co 12:31

a double portion: This probably refers to the law respecting the first-born, who had a double portion of the property of his father. As Elisha may have considered himself as the first-born of Elijah, so he requested a double portion of his spiritual influence. Num 27:20; Deu 21:17; Zec 9:12, Zec 12:8; 1Ti 5:17
