1 Now Elijah the Tishbite, who was of 1athe settlers of Gilead, said to Ahab, “bAs the Lord, the God of Israel lives, before whom I stand, surely cthere shall be neither dew nor rain these years, except by my word.”
3 “Go away from here and turn eastward, and hide yourself by the brook Cherith, which is 1east of the Jordan.
4 “It shall be that you will drink of the brook, and aI have commanded the ravens to provide for you there.”
5 So he went and did according to the word of the Lord, for he went and lived by the brook Cherith, which is 1east of the Jordan.
10 So he arose and went to Zarephath, and when he came to the gate of the city, behold, a widow was there gathering sticks; and ahe called to her and said, “Please get me a little water in a 1jar, that I may drink.”
12 But she said, “aAs the Lord your God lives, bI have no 1bread, only a handful of flour in the 2bowl and a little oil in the jar; and behold, I am gathering 3a few sticks that I may go in and prepare for me and my son, that we may eat it and cdie.”
13 Then Elijah said to her, “Do not fear; go, do as you have said, but make me a little bread cake from 1it first and bring it out to me, and afterward you may make one for yourself and for your son.
17 Now it came about after these things that the son of the woman, the mistress of the house, became sick; and his sickness was so severe that there was no breath left in him.
20 He called to the Lord and said, “O Lord my God, have You also brought calamity to the widow with whom I am 1staying, by causing her son to die?”
24 Then the woman said to Elijah, “aNow I know that you are a man of God and that the word of the Lord in your mouth is truth.”
