Reading 1, Second Kings 2:1, 6-14
7 Fifty of the brotherhood of prophets followed them, halting some distance away as the two of them stood beside the Jordan.
8 Elijah took his cloak, rolled it up and struck the water; and the water divided to left and right, and the two of them crossed over dry-shod.
12 Elisha saw it, and shouted, 'My father! My father! Chariot of Israel and its chargers!' Then he lost sight of him, and taking hold of his own clothes he tore them in half.

17 But when you fast, put scent on your head and wash your face,
