First Kings 17


17:1 And Elijah the Tishbite [who was] of the inhabitants of
 Gilead, said to Ahab, [As] the LORD God of Israel liveth,
 before whom I stand, there shall not be dew nor rain these
 years, but according to my word.
17:2 And the word of the LORD came to him, saying,
17:3 Depart hence, and turn thee eastward, and hide thyself by
 the brook Cherith, that [is] before Jordan.
17:4 And it shall be, [that] thou shalt drink of the brook; and
 I have commanded the ravens to feed thee there.
17:5 So he went and did according to the word of the LORD: for
 he went and dwelt by the brook Cherith, that [is] before
 Jordan.
17:6 And the ravens brought him bread and flesh in the morning,
 and bread and flesh in the evening; and he drank of the brook.
17:7 And it came to pass after a while, that the brook dried up,
 because there had been no rain in the land.
17:8 And the word of the LORD came to him, saying,
17:9 Arise, go to Zarephath, which [belongeth] to Zidon, and
 dwell there: behold, I have commanded a widow woman there to
 sustain thee.
17:10 So he arose and went to Zarephath. And when he came to the
 gate of the city, behold, the widow woman [was] there gathering
 sticks: and he called to her, and said, Bring me, I pray thee,
 a little water in a vessel, that I may drink.
17:11 And as she was going to bring [it], he called to her, and
 said, Bring me, I pray thee, a morsel of bread in thy hand.
17:12 And she said, [As] the LORD thy God liveth, I have not a
 cake, but a handful of meal in a barrel, and a little oil in a
 cruse: and behold, I [am] gathering two sticks, that I may go
 in and dress it for me and my son, that we may eat it, and die.
17:13 And Elijah said to her, Fear not; go [and] do as thou hast
 said: but make me of it a little cake first, and bring [it] to
 me, and afterward make for thee and for thy son.
17:14 For thus saith the LORD God of Israel, The barrel of meal
 shall not waste, neither shall the cruse of oil fail, until the
 day [that] the LORD sendeth rain upon the earth.
17:15 And she went and did according to the saying of Elijah:
 and she, and he, and her house, did eat [many] days.
17:16 [And] the barrel of meal wasted not, neither did the cruse
 of oil fail, according to the word of the LORD, which he spoke
 by Elijah.
17:17 And it came to pass after these things [that] the son of
 the woman, the mistress of the house, fell sick; and his
 sickness was so severe, that there was no breath left in him.
17:18 And she said to Elijah, What have I to do with thee, O
 thou man of God? art thou come to me to call my sin to
 remembrance, and to slay my son?
17:19 And he said to her, Give me thy son. And he took him out
 of her bosom, and carried him up into a loft, where he abode,
 and laid him upon his own bed.
17:20 And he cried to the LORD, and said, O LORD my God, hast
 thou also brought evil upon the widow with whom I sojourn, by
 slaying her son?
17:21 And he stretched himself upon the child three times, and
 cried to the LORD, and said, O LORD my God, I pray thee, let
 this child's soul come into him again.
17:22 And the LORD heard the voice of Elijah; and the soul of
 the child came into him again, and he revived.
17:23 And Elijah took the child, and brought him down from the
 chamber into the house, and delivered him to his mother: and
 Elijah said, See, thy son liveth.
17:24 And the woman said to Elijah, Now by this I know that thou
 [art] a man of God, [and] that the word of the LORD in thy
 mouth [is] truth.
