1 ¶ And Ahab256 told5046 Jezebel348 all that Elijah452 had done,6213 and withal how he had slain2026 all the prophets5030 with the sword.2719 2 Then Jezebel348 sent7971 a messenger4397 unto Elijah,452 saying,559 So let the gods430 do6213 to me, and more3254 also, if I make7760 not thy life5315 as the life5315 of one259 of them by to morrow4279 about this time.6256 3 And when he saw7200 that, he arose,6965 and went3212 for his life,5315 and came935 to Beersheba,884 which belongeth to Judah,3063 and left3240 his servant5288 there. 4 ¶ But he himself went1980 a day's3117 journey1870 into the wilderness,4057 and came935 and sat down3427 under a259 juniper tree:7574 and he requested7592 {Heb. for his life} for himself5315 that he might die;4191 and said,559 It is enough;7227 now, O LORD,3068 take away3947 my life;5315 for I am not better2896 than my fathers.1 5 And as he lay7901 and slept3462 under a259 juniper tree,7574 behold, then an angel4397 touched5060 him, and said559 unto him, Arise6965 and eat.398 6 And he looked,5027 and, behold, there was a cake5692 baken on the coals,7529 and a cruse6835 of water4325 at his {Heb. bolster} head.4763 And he did eat398 and drink,8354 and laid him down7901 again.7725 7 And the angel4397 of the LORD3068 came again7725 the second time,8145 and touched5060 him, and said,559 Arise6965 and eat;398 because the journey1870 is too great7227 for thee. 8 And he arose,6965 and did eat398 and drink,8354 and went3212 in the strength3581 of that meat396 forty705 days3117 and forty705 nights3915 unto Horeb2722 the mount2022 of God.430 9 ¶ And he came935 thither unto a cave,4631 and lodged3885 there; and, behold, the word1697 of the LORD3068 came to him, and he said559 unto him, What doest thou here, Elijah?452 10 And he said,559 I have been very7065 jealous7065 for the LORD3068 God430 of hosts:6635 for the children1121 of Israel3478 have forsaken5800 thy covenant,1285 thrown down2040 thine altars,4196 and slain2026 thy prophets5030 with the sword;2719 and I, even I only, am left;3498 and they seek1245 my life,5315 to take it away.3947 11 And he said,559 Go forth,3318 and stand5975 upon the mount2022 before6440 the LORD.3068 And, behold, the LORD3068 passed by,5674 and a great1419 and strong2389 wind7307 rent6561 the mountains,2022 and brake in pieces7665 the rocks5553 before6440 the LORD;3068 but the LORD3068 was not in the wind:7307 and after310 the wind7307 an earthquake;7494 but the LORD3068 was not in the earthquake:7494 12 And after310 the earthquake7494 a fire;784 but the LORD3068 was not in the fire:784 and after310 the fire784 a still1827 small1851 voice.6963 13 And it was so, when Elijah452 heard8085 it, that he wrapped3874 his face6440 in his mantle,155 and went out,3318 and stood5975 in the entering in6607 of the cave.4631 And, behold, there came a voice6963 unto him, and said,559 What doest thou here, Elijah?452 14 And he said,559 I have been very7065 jealous7065 for the LORD3068 God430 of hosts:6635 because the children1121 of Israel3478 have forsaken5800 thy covenant,1285 thrown down2040 thine altars,4196 and slain2026 thy prophets5030 with the sword;2719 and I, even I only, am left;3498 and they seek1245 my life,5315 to take it away.3947 15 And the LORD3068 said559 unto him, Go,3212 return7725 on thy way1870 to the wilderness4057 of Damascus:1834 and when thou comest,935 anoint4886 Hazael2371 to be king4428 over Syria:758 16 And Jehu3058 the son1121 of Nimshi5250 shalt thou anoint4886 to be king4428 over Israel:3478 and Elisha477 the son1121 of Shaphat8202 of Abelmeholah65 shalt thou anoint4886 to be prophet5030 in thy room. 17 And it shall come to pass, that him that escapeth4422 the sword2719 of Hazael2371 shall Jehu3058 slay:4191 and him that escapeth4422 from the sword2719 of Jehu3058 shall Elisha477 slay.4191 18 Yet {Or, I will leave} I have left7604 me seven7651 thousand505 in Israel,3478 all the knees1290 which have not bowed3766 unto Baal,1168 and every mouth6310 which hath not kissed5401 him. 19 ¶ So he departed3212 thence, and found4672 Elisha477 the son1121 of Shaphat,8202 who was plowing2790 with twelve8147 6240 yoke6776 of oxen before6440 him, and he with the twelfth:8147 6240 and Elijah452 passed5674 by him, and cast7993 his mantle155 upon him. 20 And he left5800 the oxen,1241 and ran7323 after310 Elijah,452 and said,559 Let me, I pray thee, kiss5401 my father1 and my mother,517 and then I will follow3212 310 thee. And he said559 unto him, {Heb. go return} Go back3212 again:7725 for what have I done6213 to thee? 21 And he returned back7725 from him,310 and took3947 a yoke6776 of oxen,1241 and slew2076 them, and boiled1310 their flesh1320 with the instruments3627 of the oxen,1241 and gave5414 unto the people,5971 and they did eat.398 Then he arose,6965 and went3212 after310 Elijah,452 and ministered8334 unto him.
