Zechariah 9:12, “Return to the stronghold, you prisoners of hope.  Even today I declare that I will restore double to you.”

Elisha to Elijah in 2 Kings 2:9, “Please let a double portion of your spirit be upon me.” In verse 10, Elijah replies that only if Elisha sees Elijah be taken from him will he receive the double portion.  In verse 12 “And Elisha saw it and he cried out, ‘My father, may father, the chariot of Israel and its horsemen.'”
