2 Kings 6:15-17 NWT
. . .When the minister of the man of the [true] God rose early to get up, and went out, why, there a military force was surrounding the city with horses and war chariots. At once his attendant said to him: "Alas, my master! What shall we do?" 16 But he said: "Do not be afraid, for there are more who are with us than those who are with them." 17 And Elisha began to pray and say: "O Jehovah, open his eyes, please, that he may see." Immediately Jehovah opened the attendant's eyes, so that he saw; and, look! the mountainous region was full of horses and war chariots of fire all around Elisha.
