So he departed thence, and found Elisha the son of Shaphat,
who was plowing with twelve yoke of oxen before him, and he
with the twelfth: and Elijah passed by him, and cast his
mantle upon him. And he left the oxen, and ran after Elijah,
and said, Let me, I pray thee, kiss my father and my mother,
and then I will follow thee. And he said unto him, Go back
again: for what have I done to thee?

1 Kin. 19:19-20

And another also said, Lord, I will follow thee; but let me
first go bid them farewell, which are at home at my house.
And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the
plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.

Luke 9:61-62
