User comments for Elisha
Elisha was the successor of Elijha in the Old Testament. Before Elijah was taken into heaven by a chariot of fire, he asked Elisha what he wanted, and Elisha asked for a double portion of Elijah's annointing. Elijah then said, if he saw him being taken into heaven, that the double portion would be bestowed upon him.
Elijah and Elisha's stories were (mostly) told in first and second Kings.
There is also the Arabic variation which can be written as Alyasa, Elyasa, Il-Yasa, or El-Yasa.
Related name: Joshua.
Elisha is not related to Joshua. See the comments under Joshua for details.
