The Prophet Elisha (or Elisseus) succeeded Elijah, and performed many similar miracles and wonders. He miraculously provided food and water in times of drought, aided Israel in times of war, relived poverty, healed diseases, and raised the dead. At the end of his life, Elisha foretold of Israel's victory over the Syrians. After his death, his bones prefigured the power of holy relics when they raised a dead man who was placed in his tomb.
The Prophet Elisha is commemorated on June 14.
