First Kings 19


19:1 And Ahab told Jezebel all that Elijah had done, and how he
 had slain all the prophets with the sword.
19:2 Then Jezebel sent a messenger to Elijah, saying, So let the
 gods do [to me], and more also, if I make not thy life as the
 life of one of them by to-morrow about this time.
19:3 And when he saw [that], he arose, and went for his life,
 and came to Beer-sheba, which [belongeth] to Judah, and left
 his servant there.
19:4 But he himself went a day's journey into the wilderness,
 and came and sat down under a juniper-tree: and he requested
 for himself that he might die; and said, It is enough; now, O
 LORD, take away my life; for I [am] not better than my fathers.
19:5 And as he lay and slept under a juniper-tree, behold, then
 an angel touched him, and said to him, Arise [and] eat.
19:6 And he looked, and behold, [there was] a cake baked on the
 coals, and a cruse of water at his head. And he ate and drank,
 and laid himself down again.
19:7 And the angel of the LORD came again the second time, and
 touched him, and said, Arise [and] eat, because the journey
 [is] too great for thee.
19:8 And he arose, and ate and drank, and went in the strength
 of that food forty days and forty nights to Horeb the mount of
 God.
19:9 And he came thither to a cave, and lodged there; and
 behold, the word of the LORD [came] to him, and he said to him,
 What doest thou here, Elijah?
19:10 And he said, I have been very jealous for the LORD God of
 hosts: for the children of Israel have forsaken thy covenant,
 thrown down thy altars, and slain thy prophets with the sword;
 and I, I only, am left; and they seek my life to take it away.
19:11 And he said, Go forth, and stand upon the mount before the
 LORD. And behold, the LORD passed by, and a great and strong
 wind rent the mountains, and broke in pieces the rocks before
 the LORD; [but] the LORD [was] not in the wind: and after the
 wind an earthquake; [but] the LORD [was] not in the earthquake:
19:12 And after the earthquake a fire; [but] the LORD [was] not
 in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice.
19:13 And it was [so], when Elijah heard [it], that he wrapped
 his face in his mantle, and went out, and stood in the entrance
 of the cave. And behold, [there came] a voice to him, and said,
 What doest thou here, Elijah?
19:14 And he said, I have been very jealous for the LORD God of
 hosts: because the children of Israel have forsaken thy
 covenant, thrown down thy altars, and slain thy prophets with
 the sword; and I, I only, am left; and they seek my life, to
 take it away.
19:15 And the LORD said to him, Go, return on thy way to the
 wilderness of Damascus: and when thou comest, anoint Hazael [to
 be] king over Syria:
19:16 And Jehu the son of Nimshi shalt thou anoint [to be] king
 over Israel: and Elisha the son of Shaphat of Abel-meholah
 shalt thou anoint [to be] prophet in thy room.
19:17 And it shall come to pass, [that] him that escapeth the
 sword of Hazael shall Jehu slay: and him that escapeth from the
 sword of Jehu shall Elisha slay.
19:18 Yet I have left to [me] seven thousand in Israel, all the
 knees which have not bowed to Baal, and every mouth which hath
 not kissed him.
19:19 So he departed thence, and found Elisha the son of
 Shaphat, who [was] plowing [with] twelve yoke [of oxen] before
 him, and he with the twelfth: and Elijah passed by him, and
 cast his mantle upon him.
19:20 And he left the oxen, and ran after Elijah, and said, Let
 me, I pray thee, kiss my father and my mother, and [then] I
 will follow thee. And he said to him, Go back again: for what
 have I done to thee?
19:21 And he returned back from him, and took a yoke of oxen,
 and slew them, and boiled their flesh with the instruments of
 the oxen, and gave to the people, and they ate. Then he arose,
 and went after Elijah, and ministered to him.
