1 H256 And Ahab H5046 [H8686] told H348 Jezebel H452 all that Elijah H6213 [H8804] had done, H2026 [H8804] and how he had slain H5030 all the prophets H2719 with the sword.
2 H348 Then Jezebel H7971 [H8799] sent H4397 a messenger H452 to Elijah, H559 [H8800] saying, H430 So let the gods H6213 [H8799] do H3254 [H8686] to me, and more H7760 [H8799] 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 [H8799] And when he saw H6965 [H8799] that, he arose, H3212 [H8799] and went H5315 for his life, H935 [H8799] and came H884 to Beersheba, H3063 which belongeth to Judah, H3240 [H8686] and left H5288 his servant there.
4 H1980 [H8804] But he himself went H3117 a day's H1870 journey H4057 into the wilderness, H935 [H8799] and came H3427 [H8799] and sat down H259 under a H7574 juniper tree: H7592 [H8799] and he requested H5315 for himself H4191 [H8800] that he might die; H559 [H8799] and said, H7227 It is enough; H3068 now, O LORD, H3947 [H8798] take away H5315 my life; H2896 for I am not better H1 than my fathers.
5 H7901 [H8799] And as he lay H3462 [H8799] and slept H259 under a H7574 juniper tree, H4397 behold, then a messenger H5060 [H8802] touched H559 [H8799] him, and said H6965 [H8798] to him, Arise H398 [H8798] and eat.
6 H5027 [H8686] And he looked, H5692 and, behold, there was a cake H7529 baked on the coals, H6835 and a cruse H4325 of water H4763 at his head. H398 [H8799] And he ate H8354 [H8799] and drank, H7901 [H8799] and laid himself down H7725 [H8799] again.
7 H4397 And the messenger H3068 of the LORD H7725 [H8799] came again H8145 the second time, H5060 [H8799] and touched H559 [H8799] him, and said, H6965 [H8798] Arise H398 [H8798] and eat; H1870 because the journey H7227 is too great for thee.
8 H6965 [H8799] And he arose, H398 [H8799] and ate H8354 [H8799] and drank, H3212 [H8799] and went H3581 in the strength H396 of that food H705 forty H3117 days H705 and forty H3915 nights H2722 to Horeb H2022 the mount H430 of God.
9 H935 [H8799] And he came H4631 there to a cave, H3885 [H8799] and lodged H1697 there; and, behold, the word H3068 of the LORD H559 [H8799] came to him, and he said H452 to him, What doest thou here, Elijah?
10 H559 [H8799] And he said, H7065 [H8763] I have been very H7065 [H8765] jealous H3068 for the LORD H430 God H6635 of hosts: H1121 for the sons H3478 of Israel H5800 [H8804] have forsaken H1285 thy covenant, H2040 [H8804] thrown down H4196 thy altars, H2026 [H8804] and slain H5030 thy prophets H2719 with the sword; H3498 [H8735] and I, I only, am left; H1245 [H8762] and they seek H5315 my life, H3947 [H8800] to take it away.
11 H559 [H8799] And he said, H3318 [H8798] Go forth, H5975 [H8804] and stand H2022 upon the mount H6440 before H3068 the LORD. H3068 And, behold, the LORD H5674 [H8802] passed by, H1419 and a great H2389 and strong H7307 wind H6561 [H8764] rent H2022 the mountains, H7665 [H8764] and broke in pieces H5553 the rocks H6440 before H3068 the LORD; H3068 but the LORD H7307 was not in the wind: H310 and after H7307 the wind H7494 an earthquake; H3068 but the LORD H7494 was not in the earthquake:
12 H310 And after H7494 the earthquake H784 a fire; H3068 but the LORD 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 [H8800] heard H3874 [H8686] it, that he wrapped H6440 his face H155 in his mantle, H3318 [H8799] and went out, H5975 [H8799] and stood H6607 in the entrance H4631 of the cave. H6963 And, behold, there came a voice H559 [H8799] to him, and said, H452 What doest thou here, Elijah?
14 H559 [H8799] And he said, H7065 [H8763] I have been very H7065 [H8765] jealous H3068 for the LORD H430 God H6635 of hosts: H1121 because the sons H3478 of Israel H5800 [H8804] have forsaken H1285 thy covenant, H2040 [H8804] thrown down H4196 thy altars, H2026 [H8804] and slain H5030 thy prophets H2719 with the sword; H3498 [H8735] and I, I only, am left; H1245 [H8762] and they seek H5315 my life, H3947 [H8800] to take it away.
15 H3068 And the LORD H559 [H8799] said H3212 [H8798] to him, Go, H7725 [H8798] return H1870 on thy way H4057 to the wilderness H1834 of Damascus: H935 [H8804] and when thou comest, H4886 [H8804] anoint H2371 Hazael H4428 to be king H758 over Syria:
16 H3058 And Jehu H1121 the son H5250 of Nimshi H4886 [H8799] shalt thou anoint H4428 to be king H3478 over Israel: H477 and Elisha H1121 the son H8202 of Shaphat H65 of Abelmeholah H4886 [H8799] shalt thou anoint H5030 to be prophet in thy stead.
17 H4422 [H8737] And it shall come to pass, that him that escapeth H2719 the sword H2371 of Hazael H3058 shall Jehu H4191 [H8686] slay: H4422 [H8737] and him that escapeth H2719 from the sword H3058 of Jehu H477 shall Elisha H4191 [H8686] slay.
18 H7604 [H8689] Yet I have left H7651 to me seven H505 thousand H3478 in Israel, H1290 all the knees H3766 [H8804] which have not bowed H1168 to Baal, H6310 and every mouth H5401 [H8804] which hath not kissed him.
19 H3212 [H8799] So he departed H4672 [H8799] from there, and found H477 Elisha H1121 the son H8202 of Shaphat, H2790 [H8802] who was plowing H8147 H6240 with twelve H6776 yoke H6440 of oxen before H8147 H6240 him, and he with the twelfth: H452 and Elijah H5674 [H8799] passed H7993 [H8686] by him, and cast H155 his mantle upon him.
20 H5800 [H8799] And he left H1241 the oxen, H7323 [H8799] and ran H310 after H452 Elijah, H559 [H8799] and said, H5401 [H8799] Let me, I pray thee, kiss H1 my father H517 and my mother, H3212 H310 [H8799] and then I will follow H559 [H8799] thee. And he said H3212 [H8798] to him, Go back H7725 [H8798] again: H6213 [H8804] for what have I done to thee?
21 H7725 [H8799] And he returned back H310 from him, H3947 [H8799] and took H6776 a yoke H1241 of oxen, H2076 [H8799] and slew H1310 [H8765] them, and boiled H1320 their flesh H3627 with the instruments H1241 of the oxen, H5414 [H8799] and gave H5971 to the people, H398 [H8799] and they ate. H6965 [H8799] Then he arose, H3212 [H8799] and went H310 after H452 Elijah, H8334 [H8762] and ministered to him.
