15 And when God was contented, having separated me from my mother's womb, and having called me, by his grace, 16 To reveal his Son in me, that I might announce him the good news in the nations; I consulted not with flesh and blood: 17 Neither went I up to Jerusalem to them sent before me; but I went away to Arabia, and again returned to Damascus.

4 And he went into the desert the way of a day, and he will come and sit under one broom-tree: and he will ask for his soul to die: and he will say, Much now, O Jehovah, Take my soul, for I am not good above my fathers. 5 And he will lie down and sleep udder one broom-tree, and behold, then a messenger touched upon him, and he will say to him, Arise, eat 6 And he will look, and behold, from his head cakes baked on hot stones, and a cruse of water: and he will eat and drink, and turn back and lie down. 7 And the messenger of Jehovah will turn back the second time, and he will touch upon him, and say, Arise, eat, for much for thee the way. 8 And he will rise and eat and drink, and go in the strength of that food forty days and forty nights, even to the mountain of God, Horeb. 9 And he will go there into a cave and lodge there; and behold, the word of Jehovah to him, and he will say to him, What to thee here Elijah? 10 And he will say, Being zealous I was zealous for Jehovah the God of armies: for the sons of Israel forsook thy covenant; they tore down thine altars, and thy prophets they killed with the sword, and I alone shall be left; and they will seek my soul to take it 11 And he will say, Go forth and stand upon the mountain before Jehovah And behold, Jehovah passed by, and a great and strong wind weakening the mountains, and breaking the rocks before Jehovah; Jehovah not in the wind: and after the wind, a shaking; Jehovah not in the shaking: 12 And after the shaking, a fire; Jehovah not in the fire: and after the fire, a voice of light stillness. 13 And it will be when Elijah heard, he will cover his face in his large cloak, and he will go forth and stand at the opening of the cave; and behold, to him a voice, and it will say, What to thee here, Elijah? 14 And he will say, Being zealous, I was zealous for Jehovah the God of armies, for the sons of Israel forsook thy covenant; thine altars they tore down, and thy prophets they killed with the sword, and I alone shall be left; and they will seek my soul to take it 15 And Jehovah will say to him, Go, turn back to thy way of the desert of Damascus: and come and anoint Hazael for king over Aram: 16 And Jehu, son of Nimshi, shalt thou anoint for king over Israel: and Elisha son of Shaphat, from Abel-Me-holah, It thou anoint for prophet in thy stead. 17 And it was him escaping from the sword of Hazael shall Jelu kill: and him escaping from the sword of Jehu, shall Elisha 18 And I left in Israel seven thousand, all the knees which bowed not to Baal, and every mouth which kissed him not 19 And he will go from thence and find Elisha son of Shaphat, and he ploughed with twelve yoke before him, and he with the twelve: and Elijah will pass away by him, and he will cast his wide cloak to him. 20 And he will forsake the oxen and run after Elijah, and say, I will kiss now to my father and to my mother, and I will go after thee. And he will say to him, Go, turn back; for what did I to thee? 21 And he will turn back from after him and take a yoke of oxen and sacrifice them, and with the instruments of the oxen he boiled them the flesh, and he will give to the people, and they will eat. And he will rise and go after Elijah and serve him.
35 And early, having risen far in the night, he went out, and departed into a deserted place, and there prayed.
6 God setting the only ones in the house, bringing forth the bound into prosperities, but those turning away dwelt in a dry land.
23 And having loosed the crowds, he went up into a mount apart to pray: and being evening, he was there alone.
1 Attend ye not to do your justice before men, to be seen to them; and if otherwise ye have no reward from your Father which in the heavens. 2 When therefore thou doest alms, thou shouldst not sound the trumpet before thee, as hypocrites do in the assemblies, and in the streets, that they might be praised by men. Verily I say to you, They have their reward. 3 But thou doing alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right does: 4 That thine alms might be in secret; and thy Father, who seeing in secret, shall give back to thee openly. 5 And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites; for they love in the assemblies, and in the corners of the broad ways to stand praying, so that they might appear to men. Verily I say to you, that they have their reward. 6 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy store-house, and having shut thy door, pray to thy Father which in secret; and thy Father who seeing in secret shall give back to thee openly. 7 And praying, talk ye not vainly as the nations; for they think that by their profaneness of speech they shall be listened to. 8 Therefore make not yourselves like them: for your Father knows of what things ye have need before ye ask him. 9 Therefore so do ye pray: Our Father which in the heavens, Let thy name be declared holy. 10 Let thy kingdom come. Let thy will be as in heaven also upon the earth. 11 Give us this day our bread sufficient for sustenance. 12 And let go to us our debts, as we let go to our debtors. 13 And thou shouldst not lead us into temptation, but deliver thou us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen. 14 For if ye let go to men their faults, your Father which in the heavens will also let go to you. 15 But if ye should not let go to men their faults, neither will your Father let go your faults. 16 And when ye fast, be not, as hypocrites, of gloomy aspect: for they conceal their faces that they might appear to men fasting. Verily I say to you, That they have their reward. 17 And thou fasting, anoint thy head, and wash thy face; 18 That thou mightest not appear to men fasting, but to thy Father which in secret; and thy Father which in secret, will give back to thee openly. 19 Treasure not up to you treasures upon earth, where moth and gnawing destroy, and thieves dig through and steal: 20 But treasure to you treasures in heaven, where neither moth, nor gnawing destroy; and where thieves dig not through, nor steal. 21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. 22 The light of the body is the eye; if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be light. 23 But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be dark. If therefore the light which in thee is darkness, how much the darkness 24 None can serve two lords: for either he will hate one and love the other; or hold firmly to one and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon. 25 For this I say to you, Be not anxious about your soul, what ye eat, and what ye drink; nor about your body, what ye put on. Is not the soul more than food, and the body than dress? 26 Look ye upon the fowls of heaven; for they neither sow, nor reap, nor collect into stores; and your heavenly Father nourishes them. Do ye not rather differ from them 27 Which of you, being anxious, can add one cubit to his size? 28 And about dress, why are ye anxious? Consider the white lilies of the field, how they grow; they are not wearied, neither do they spin: 29 And I say to you that neither Solomon in all his glory was surrounded as one of these. 30 And if the grass of the field, being this day, and to morrow cast into the furnace, God so clothes much rather you, ye of little faith! 31 Therefore be ye not anxious, saying: What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, What shall we put round us? 32 For all these the nations seek for; for your heavenly Father knows that ye have need of all these. 33 But seek first the kingdom of God and his justice, and all these shall be added to you. 34 Therefore should ye not be anxious about the morrow: for the morrow shall be anxious about the things of itself. Sufficient for the day its evil.
31 And he said to them, Come ye yourselves apart to a desert place, and rest a little: for many were coming and returning, and neither had they leisure to eat.
12 And it was in those days, he went out to the mount to pray, and he was passing the whole night in prayer to God.
6 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy store-house, and having shut thy door, pray to thy Father which in secret; and thy Father who seeing in secret shall give back to thee openly.
