1 Kings 17:1-16

And Elijah
<0452>
the Tishbite
<08664>_,
[who was] of the inhabitants
<08453>
of Gilead
<01568>_,
said
<0559> (8799)
unto Ahab
<0256>_,
[As] the LORD
<03068>
God
<0430>
of Israel
<03478>
liveth
<02416>_,
before
<06440>
whom I stand
<05975> (8804)_,
there shall not be dew
<02919>
nor rain
<04306>
these years
<08141>_,
but according
<06310>
to my word
<01697>_.
{Elijah: Heb. Elijahu: Gr. Elias}
And the word
<01697>
of the LORD
<03068>
came unto him, saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Get
<03212> (8798)
thee hence, and turn
<06437> (8804)
thee eastward
<06924>_,
and hide
<05641> (8738)
thyself by the brook
<05158>
Cherith
<03747>_,
that [is] before
<06440>
Jordan
<03383>_.
And it shall be, [that] thou shalt drink
<08354> (8799)
of the brook
<05158>_;
and I have commanded
<06680> (8765)
the ravens
<06158>
to feed
<03557> (8771)
thee there.
So he went
<03212> (8799)
and did
<06213> (8799)
according unto the word
<01697>
of the LORD
<03068>_:
for he went
<03212> (8799)
and dwelt
<03427> (8799)
by the brook
<05158>
Cherith
<03747>_,
that [is] before
<06440>
Jordan
<03383>_.
And the ravens
<06158>
brought
<0935> (8688)
him bread
<03899>
and flesh
<01320>
in the morning
<01242>_,
and bread
<03899>
and flesh
<01320>
in the evening
<06153>_;
and he drank
<08354> (8799)
of the brook
<05158>_.
And it came to pass after
<07093>
a while
<03117>_,
that the brook
<05158>
dried up
<03001> (8799)_,
because there had been no rain
<01653>
in the land
<0776>_.
{after...: Heb. at the end of days}
And the word
<01697>
of the LORD
<03068>
came unto him, saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Arise
<06965> (8798)_,
get
<03212> (8798)
thee to Zarephath
<06886>_,
which [belongeth] to Zidon
<06721>_,
and dwell
<03427> (8804)
there: behold, I have commanded
<06680> (8765)
a widow
<0490>
woman
<0802>
there to sustain
<03557> (8771)
thee. {Zarephath: Gr. Sarepta}
So he arose
<06965> (8799)
and went
<03212> (8799)
to Zarephath
<06886>_.
And when he came
<0935> (8799)
to the gate
<06607>
of the city
<05892>_,
behold, the widow
<0490>
woman
<0802>
[was] there gathering
<07197> (8781)
of sticks
<06086>_:
and he called
<07121> (8799)
to her, and said
<0559> (8799)_,
Fetch
<03947> (8798)
me, I pray thee, a little
<04592>
water
<04325>
in a vessel
<03627>_,
that I may drink
<08354> (8799)_.
And as she was going
<03212> (8799)
to fetch
<03947> (8800)
[it], he called
<07121> (8799)
to her, and said
<0559> (8799)_,
Bring
<03947> (8798)
me, I pray thee, a morsel
<06595>
of bread
<03899>
in thine hand
<03027>_.
And she said
<0559> (8799)_,
[As] the LORD
<03068>
thy God
<0430>
liveth
<02416>_,
I have
<03426>
not a cake
<04580>_,
but an handful
<04393> <03709>
of meal
<07058>
in a barrel
<03537>_,
and a little
<04592>
oil
<08081>
in a cruse
<06835>_:
and, behold, I [am] gathering
<07197> (8781)
two
<08147>
sticks
<06086>_,
that I may go in
<0935> (8804)
and dress
<06213> (8804)
it for me and my son
<01121>_,
that we may eat
<0398> (8804)
it, and die
<04191> (8804)_.
And Elijah
<0452>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto her, Fear
<03372> (8799)
not; go
<0935> (8798)
[and] do
<06213> (8798)
as thou hast said
<01697>_:
but make
<06213> (8798)
me thereof
<08033>
a little
<06996>
cake
<05692>
first
<07223>_,
and bring
<03318> (8689)
[it] unto me, and after
<0314>
make
<06213> (8799)
for thee and for thy son
<01121>_.
For thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>
God
<0430>
of Israel
<03478>_,
The barrel
<03537>
of meal
<07058>
shall not waste
<03615> (8799)_,
neither shall the cruse
<06835>
of oil
<08081>
fail
<02637> (8799)_,
until the day
<03117>
[that] the LORD
<03068>
sendeth
<05414> (8800)
rain
<01653>
upon
<06440>
the earth
<0127>_.
{sendeth: Heb. giveth}
And she went
<03212> (8799)
and did
<06213> (8799)
according to the saying
<01697>
of Elijah
<0452>_:
and she, and he, and her house
<01004>_,
did eat
<0398> (8799)
[many] days
<03117>_.
{many...: or, a full year}
[And] the barrel
<03537>
of meal
<07058>
wasted
<03615> (8804)
not, neither did the cruse
<06835>
of oil
<08081>
fail
<02638>_,
according to the word
<01697>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
which he spake
<01696> (8765)
by
<03027>
Elijah
<0452>_.
