1 Kings 19 ©
Jezebel threatening Elijah's life for having slain Baal's prophets, he fleeth to Beer-sheba. In the wilderness he groweth weary of life, but being twice strengthened by food brought him by an angel, he reacheth Horeb after having fasted forty days and forty nights. At Horeb God appeareth unto him, and commissioneth him to anoint Hazael, Jehu, and Elisha. He meeteth Elisha, who taking leave of his friends followeth him.
AND Ahab told Jezebel aall that Elijah had done, and *withal how he had slain all the prophets with the sword.
And he said, I have been overy jealous for the LORD God of hosts: for pthe children of Israel have forsaken thy covenant, thrown down thine altars, and slain thy prophets with the sword; and qI, even I only, am left; and they seek my life, to take it away.
And he said, Go forth, and rstand upon the mount before the LORD. And, behold, sthe LORD passed by, and ta great and strong wind rent the mountains, and brake in pieces the rocks before the LORD; but uthe LORD was not in the wind: and after the wind an earthquake; but the LORD was not in the earthquake:
And he said, yI have been very jealous for the LORD God of hosts: because the children of Israel have forsaken thy covenant, thrown down thine altars, and slain thy prophets with the sword; and I, even I only, am left; and they seek my life, to take it away.
And it shall come to pass, that him that escapeth dthe sword of Hazael shall Jehu slay: and him that escapeth from ethe sword of Jehu shall fElisha slay.
And he returned back from him, and took a yoke of oxen, and slew them, and kboiled their flesh with the instruments of the oxen, and lgave unto the people, and they did eat. Then he arose, and mwent after Elijah, and nministered unto him.
