1 Kings 19:1-21

And Ahab
<0256>
told
<05046> (8686)
Jezebel
<0348>
all that Elijah
<0452>
had done
<06213> (8804)_,
and withal how he had slain
<02026> (8804)
all the prophets
<05030>
with the sword
<02719>_.
Then Jezebel
<0348>
sent
<07971> (8799)
a messenger
<04397>
unto Elijah
<0452>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
So let the gods
<0430>
do
<06213> (8799)
[to me], and more
<03254> (8686)
also, if I make
<07760> (8799)
not thy life
<05315>
as the life
<05315>
of one
<0259>
of them by to morrow
<04279>
about this time
<06256>_.
And when he saw
<07200> (8799)
[that], he arose
<06965> (8799)_,
and went
<03212> (8799)
for his life
<05315>_,
and came
<0935> (8799)
to Beersheba
<0884>_,
which [belongeth] to Judah
<03063>_,
and left
<03240> (8686)
his servant
<05288>
there.
But he himself went
<01980> (8804)
a day's
<03117>
journey
<01870>
into the wilderness
<04057>_,
and came
<0935> (8799)
and sat down
<03427> (8799)
under a
<0259>
juniper tree
<07574>_:
and he requested
<07592> (8799)
for himself
<05315>
that he might die
<04191> (8800)_;
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
It is enough
<07227>_;
now, O LORD
<03068>_,
take away
<03947> (8798)
my life
<05315>_;
for I [am] not better
<02896>
than my fathers
<01>_.
{for himself: Heb. for his life}
And as he lay
<07901> (8799)
and slept
<03462> (8799)
under a
<0259>
juniper tree
<07574>_,
behold, then an angel
<04397>
touched
<05060> (8802)
him, and said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, Arise
<06965> (8798)
[and] eat
<0398> (8798)_.
And he looked
<05027> (8686)_,
and, behold, [there was] a cake
<05692>
baken on the coals
<07529>_,
and a cruse
<06835>
of water
<04325>
at his head
<04763>_.
And he did eat
<0398> (8799)
and drink
<08354> (8799)_,
and laid him down
<07901> (8799)
again
<07725> (8799)_.
{head: Heb. bolster}
And the angel
<04397>
of the LORD
<03068>
came again
<07725> (8799)
the second time
<08145>_,
and touched
<05060> (8799)
him, and said
<0559> (8799)_,
Arise
<06965> (8798)
[and] eat
<0398> (8798)_;
because the journey
<01870>
[is] too great
<07227>
for thee.
And he arose
<06965> (8799)_,
and did eat
<0398> (8799)
and drink
<08354> (8799)_,
and went
<03212> (8799)
in the strength
<03581>
of that meat
<0396>
forty
<0705>
days
<03117>
and forty
<0705>
nights
<03915>
unto Horeb
<02722>
the mount
<02022>
of God
<0430>_.
And he came
<0935> (8799)
thither unto a cave
<04631>_,
and lodged
<03885> (8799)
there; and, behold, the word
<01697>
of the LORD
<03068>
[came] to him, and he said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, What doest thou here, Elijah
<0452>_?
And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
I have been very
<07065> (8763)
jealous
<07065> (8765)
for the LORD
<03068>
God
<0430>
of hosts
<06635>_:
for the children
<01121>
of Israel
<03478>
have forsaken
<05800> (8804)
thy covenant
<01285>_,
thrown down
<02040> (8804)
thine altars
<04196>_,
and slain
<02026> (8804)
thy prophets
<05030>
with the sword
<02719>_;
and I, [even] I only, am left
<03498> (8735)_;
and they seek
<01245> (8762)
my life
<05315>_,
to take it away
<03947> (8800)_.
And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
Go forth
<03318> (8798)_,
and stand
<05975> (8804)
upon the mount
<02022>
before
<06440>
the LORD
<03068>_.
And, behold, the LORD
<03068>
passed by
<05674> (8802)_,
and a great
<01419>
and strong
<02389>
wind
<07307>
rent
<06561> (8764)
the mountains
<02022>_,
and brake in pieces
<07665> (8764)
the rocks
<05553>
before
<06440>
the LORD
<03068>_;
[but] the LORD
<03068>
[was] not in the wind
<07307>_:
and after
<0310>
the wind
<07307>
an earthquake
<07494>_;
[but] the LORD
<03068>
[was] not in the earthquake
<07494>_:
And after
<0310>
the earthquake
<07494>
a fire
<0784>_;
[but] the LORD
<03068>
[was] not in the fire
<0784>_:
and after
<0310>
the fire
<0784>
a still
<01827>
small
<01851>
voice
<06963>_.
And it was [so], when Elijah
<0452>
heard
<08085> (8800)
[it], that he wrapped
<03874> (8686)
his face
<06440>
in his mantle
<0155>_,
and went out
<03318> (8799)_,
and stood
<05975> (8799)
in the entering in
<06607>
of the cave
<04631>_.
And, behold, [there came] a voice
<06963>
unto him, and said
<0559> (8799)_,
What doest thou here, Elijah
<0452>_?
And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
I have been very
<07065> (8763)
jealous
<07065> (8765)
for the LORD
<03068>
God
<0430>
of hosts
<06635>_:
because the children
<01121>
of Israel
<03478>
have forsaken
<05800> (8804)
thy covenant
<01285>_,
thrown down
<02040> (8804)
thine altars
<04196>_,
and slain
<02026> (8804)
thy prophets
<05030>
with the sword
<02719>_;
and I, [even] I only, am left
<03498> (8735)_;
and they seek
<01245> (8762)
my life
<05315>_,
to take it away
<03947> (8800)_.
And the LORD
<03068>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, Go
<03212> (8798)_,
return
<07725> (8798)
on thy way
<01870>
to the wilderness
<04057>
of Damascus
<01834>_:
and when thou comest
<0935> (8804)_,
anoint
<04886> (8804)
Hazael
<02371>
[to be] king
<04428>
over Syria
<0758>_:
And Jehu
<03058>
the son
<01121>
of Nimshi
<05250>
shalt thou anoint
<04886> (8799)
[to be] king
<04428>
over Israel
<03478>_:
and Elisha
<0477>
the son
<01121>
of Shaphat
<08202>
of Abelmeholah
<065>
shalt thou anoint
<04886> (8799)
[to be] prophet
<05030>
in thy room. {Elisha: Gr. Eliseus}
And it shall come to pass, [that] him that escapeth
<04422> (8737)
the sword
<02719>
of Hazael
<02371>
shall Jehu
<03058>
slay
<04191> (8686)_:
and him that escapeth
<04422> (8737)
from the sword
<02719>
of Jehu
<03058>
shall Elisha
<0477>
slay
<04191> (8686)_.
Yet I have left
<07604> (8689)
[me] seven
<07651>
thousand
<0505>
in Israel
<03478>_,
all the knees
<01290>
which have not bowed
<03766> (8804)
unto Baal
<01168>_,
and every mouth
<06310>
which hath not kissed
<05401> (8804)
him. {I have...: or, I will leave}
So he departed
<03212> (8799)
thence, and found
<04672> (8799)
Elisha
<0477>
the son
<01121>
of Shaphat
<08202>_,
who [was] plowing
<02790> (8802)
[with] twelve
<08147> <06240>
yoke
<06776>
[of oxen] before
<06440>
him, and he with the twelfth
<08147> <06240>_:
and Elijah
<0452>
passed
<05674> (8799)
by him, and cast
<07993> (8686)
his mantle
<0155>
upon him.
And he left
<05800> (8799)
the oxen
<01241>_,
and ran
<07323> (8799)
after
<0310>
Elijah
<0452>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
Let me, I pray thee, kiss
<05401> (8799)
my father
<01>
and my mother
<0517>_,
and [then] I will follow
<03212> (8799) <0310>
thee. And he said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, Go back
<03212> (8798)
again
<07725> (8798)_:
for what have I done
<06213> (8804)
to thee? {Go...: Heb. Go return}
And he returned back
<07725> (8799)
from him
<0310>_,
and took
<03947> (8799)
a yoke
<06776>
of oxen
<01241>_,
and slew
<02076> (8799)
them, and boiled
<01310> (8765)
their flesh
<01320>
with the instruments
<03627>
of the oxen
<01241>_,
and gave
<05414> (8799)
unto the people
<05971>_,
and they did eat
<0398> (8799)_.
Then he arose
<06965> (8799)_,
and went
<03212> (8799)
after
<0310>
Elijah
<0452>_,
and ministered
<08334> (8762)
unto him.
