1 Kings chapter 17
17:1 | Now Elijah the Tishbite, from Tishbe in Gilead, said to Ahab, "As the LORD, the God of Israel, lives, whom I serve, there will be neither dew nor rain in the next few years except at my word."
17:2 | Then the word of the LORD came to Elijah:
17:3 | "Leave here, turn eastward and hide in the Kerith Ravine, east of the Jordan.
17:4 | You will drink from the brook, and I have ordered the ravens to feed you there."
17:5 | So he did what the LORD had told him. He went to the Kerith Ravine, east of the Jordan, and stayed there.
17:6 | The ravens brought him bread and meat in the morning and bread and meat in the evening, and he drank from the brook.
17:7 | Some time later the brook dried up because there had been no rain in the land.
17:8 | Then the word of the LORD came to him:
17:9 | "Go at once to Zarephath of Sidon and stay there. I have commanded a widow in that place to supply you with food."
17:10 | So he went to Zarephath. When he came to the town gate, a widow was there gathering sticks. He called to her and asked, "Would you bring me a little water in a jar so I may have a drink?"
17:11 | As she was going to get it, he called, "And bring me, please, a piece of bread."
17:15 | She went away and did as Elijah had told her. So there was food every day for Elijah and for the woman and her family.
17:16 | For the jar of flour was not used up and the jug of oil did not run dry, in keeping with the word of the LORD spoken by Elijah.
17:17 | Some time later the son of the woman who owned the house became ill. He grew worse and worse, and finally stopped breathing.
17:18 | She said to Elijah, "What do you have against me, man of God? Did you come to remind me of my sin and kill my son?"
17:19 | "Give me your son," Elijah replied. He took him from her arms, carried him to the upper room where he was staying, and laid him on his bed.
17:20 | Then he cried out to the LORD, "O LORD my God, have you brought tragedy also upon this widow I am staying with, by causing her son to die?"
17:23 | Elijah picked up the child and carried him down from the room into the house. He gave him to his mother and said, "Look, your son is alive!"
17:24 | Then the woman said to Elijah, "Now I know that you are a man of God and that the word of the LORD from your mouth is the truth."
