Joseph Sold Into Slavery
It was at Dothan that Joseph's brothers threw him into "one of the pits," perhaps referring to one of the two wells.
"So Joseph [see Coat Of Many Colors] went after his brothers, and found them at Dothan. They saw him afar off, and before he came near to them they conspired against him to kill him. They said to one another, "Here comes this dreamer. Come now, let us kill him and throw him into one of the pits; then we shall say that a wild beast has devoured him, and we shall see what will become of his dreams." (Genesis 37:17-20 RSV)
Chariots of Fire
It was at Dothan that "the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha."
"And one of his servants said, "None, my lord, O king; but Elisha, the prophet [see Prophets] who is in Israel, tells the king of Israel [see Kings of Israel and Judah] the words that you speak in your bedchamber."
