1 H256 And Ahab H5046 told H348 Jezebel H452 all that Elijah H6213 had done, H2026 and withal how he had slain H5030 all the prophets H2719 with the sword.
2 H348 Then Jezebel H7971 send H4397 a messenger H452 unto Elijah, H559 saying, H430 So let the gods H6213 do H3254 to me, and more H7760 also, if I make H5315 not thy life H5315 as the life H259 of one H4279 of them by to-morrow H6256 about this time.
3 H7200 And when he saw H6965 that, he arose, H3212 and went H5315 for his life, H935 and came H884 to Beer-sheba, H3063 which belongeth to Judah, H3240 and left H5288 his servant there.
4 H1980 But he himself went H3117 a day's H1870 journey H4057 into the wilderness, H935 and came H3427 and sat down H259 under a H7574 juniper-tree: H7592 and he requested H5315 for himself H4191 that he might die, H559 and said, H7227 It is enough; H3068 now, O Jehovah, H3947 take away H5315 my life; H2896 for I am not better H1 than my fathers.
5 H7901 And he lay H3462 down and slept H259 under a H7574 juniper-tree; H4397 and, behold, an angel H5060 touched H559 him, and said H6965 unto him, Arise H398 and eat.
6 H5027 And he looked, H4763 and, behold, there was at his head H5692 a cake H7529 baken on the coals, H6835 and a cruse H4325 of water. H398 And he did eat H8354 and drink, H7901 and laid him down H7725 again.
7 H4397 And the angel H3068 of Jehovah H7725 came again H8145 the second time, H5060 and touched H559 him, and said, H6965 Arise H398 and eat, H1870 because the journey H7227 is too great for thee.
8 H6965 And he arose, H398 and did eat H8354 and drink, H3212 and went H3581 in the strength H396 of that food H705 forty H3117 days H705 and forty H3915 nights H2722 unto Horeb H2022 the mount H430 of God.
9 H935 And he came H4631 thither unto a cave, H3885 and lodged H1697 there; and, behold, the word H3068 of Jehovah H559 came to him, and he said H452 unto him, What doest thou here, Elijah?
10 H559 And he said, H7065 I have been very H7065 jealous H3068 for Jehovah, H430 the God H6635 of hosts; H1121 for the children H3478 of Israel H5800 have forsaken H1285 thy covenant, H2040 thrown down H4196 thine altars, H2026 and slain H5030 thy prophets H2719 with the sword: H3498 and I, even I only, am left; H1245 and they seek H5315 my life, H3947 to take it away.
11 H559 And he said, H3318 Go forth, H5975 and stand H2022 upon the mount H6440 before H3068 Jehovah. H3068 And, behold, Jehovah H5674 passed by, H1419 and a great H2389 and strong H7307 wind H6561 rent H2022 the mountains, H7665 and brake in pieces H5553 the rocks H6440 before H3068 Jehovah; H3068 but Jehovah H7307 was not in the wind: H310 and after H7307 the wind H7494 an earthquake; H3068 but Jehovah H7494 was not in the earthquake:
12 H310 and after H7494 the earthquake H784 a fire; H3068 but Jehovah H784 was not in the fire: H310 and after H784 the fire H1827 a still H1851 small H6963 voice.
13 H452 And it was so, when Elijah H8085 heard H3874 it, that he wrapped H6440 his face H155 in his mantle, H3318 and went out, H5975 and stood H6607 in H4631 the entrance of the cave. H6963 And, behold, there came a voice H559 unto him, and said, H452 What doest thou here, Elijah?
14 H559 And he said, H7065 I have been very H7065 jealous H3068 for Jehovah, H430 the God H6635 of hosts; H1121 for the children H3478 of Israel H5800 have forsaken H1285 thy covenant, H2040 thrown down H4196 thine altars, H2026 and slain H5030 thy prophets H2719 with the sword; H3498 and I, even I only, am left; H1245 and they seek H5315 my life, H3947 to take it away.
15 H3068 And Jehovah H559 said H3212 unto him, Go, H7725 return H1870 on thy way H4057 to the wilderness H1834 of Damascus: H935 and when thou comest, H4886 thou shalt anoint H2371 Hazael H4428 to be king H758 over Syria;
16 H3058 and Jehu H1121 the son H5250 of Nimshi H4886 shalt thou anoint H4428 to be king H3478 over Israel; H477 and Elisha H1121 the son H8202 of Shaphat H65 of Abel-meholah H4886 shalt thou anoint H5030 to be prophet in thy room.
17 H4422 And it shall come to pass, that him that escapeth H2719 from the sword H2371 of Hazael H3058 shall Jehu H4191 slay; H4422 and him that escapeth H2719 from the sword H3058 of Jehu H477 shall Elisha H4191 slay.
18 H7604 Yet will I leave H7651 me seven H505 thousand H3478 in Israel, H1290 all the knees H3766 which have not bowed H1168 unto Baal, H6310 and every mouth H5401 which hath not kissed him.
19 H3212 So he departed H4672 thence, and found H477 Elisha H1121 the son H8202 of Shaphat, H2790 who was plowing, H8147 with twelve H6776 yoke H6440 of oxen before H8147 him, and he with the twelfth: H452 and Elijah H5674 passed H7993 over unto him, and cast H155 his mantle upon him.
20 H5800 And he left H1241 the oxen, H7323 and ran H310 after H452 Elijah, H559 and said, H5401 Let me, I pray thee, kiss H1 my father H517 and my mother, H3212 and then I will follow H559 thee. And he said H3212 unto him, Go back H7725 again; H6213 for what have I done to thee?
21 H7725 And he returned H310 from following him, H3947 and took H6776 the yoke H1241 of oxen, H2076 and slew H1310 them, and boiled H1320 their flesh H3627 with the instruments H1241 of the oxen, H5414 and gave H5971 unto the people, H398 and they did eat. H6965 Then he arose, H3212 and went H310 after H452 Elijah, H8334 and ministered unto him.
