It is testimony to the long influence of Elisha, prophesying during a succession of ungodly kings, that King Joash would speak of him in this way, repeating verbatim the words that Elisha had cried out at the translation of Elijah into heaven (2 Kings 2:12). Elisha had, indeed, been a one-man army for Israel, on one occasion even leading captive the entire Syrian army (2 Kings 6:18-23), and on another putting a besieging army to route by his prophetic prayer (2 Kings 7:1-7).
