1 And Ahab told Jezebel all that Elijah had done, also how he had a executed all the prophets with the sword. 2 Then Jezebel sent a messenger to Elijah, saying, b "So let the gods do to me, and more also, if I do not make your life as the life of one of them by tomorrow about this time." 3 And when he saw that, he arose and ran for his life, and went to Beersheba, which belongs to Judah, and left his servant there.
4 But he himself went a day's journey into the wilderness, and came and sat down under a 1 broom tree. And he c prayed that he might die, and said, "It is enough! Now, LORD, take my life, for I am no better than my fathers!" 5 Then as he lay and slept under a broom tree, suddenly an 2 angel 2 touched him, and said to him, "Arise and eat." 6 Then he looked, and there by his head was a cake baked on 4 coals, and a jar of water. So he ate and drank, and lay down again. 7 And the 5 angel 5 of the LORD came back the second time, and touched him, and said, "Arise and eat, because the journey is too great for you." 8 So he arose, and ate and drank; and he went in the strength of that food forty days and d forty nights as far as e Horeb, the mountain of God.New King James Version (NKJV) Copyright © 1982 by Thomas Nelson, Inc.
