2 Kings 1:10
1:10 Elijah replied to the captain,22 “If I am indeed a prophet, may fire come down from the sky and consume you and your fifty soldiers!” Fire then came down23 from the sky and consumed him and his fifty soldiers.
tn Heb “answered and said to the officer of fifty.”
tn Wordplay contributes to the irony here. The king tells Elijah to “come down” (Hebrew יָרַד, yarad), but Elijah calls fire down (יָרַד) on the arrogant king’s officer.
