The Prophet Elisha and Naaman by Dirck Jacobsz

(Note Elisha, on the left, wearing the mantel of his mentor, Elijah. Elijah placed the mantel on Elisha's shoulders, and upon his ascension left it to Elisha, to indicate the young man's consecration to the prophetic office. See 1 Kings 19:15-21 and 2 Kings 2:11-14.)
