1 Kings 17

17:1 And EliYah the Tishbite, who was of the inhabitants of Gilead, said unto Ahab, As Elohim 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 came unto him, saying,

17:3 Get thee 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 unto the word of : 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 came unto him, saying,

17:9 Arise, get thee 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 of sticks: and he called to her, and said, Fetch me, I pray thee, a little water in a vessel, that I may drink.

17:11 And as she was going to fetch it, he called to her, and said, Bring me, I pray thee, a morsel of bread in thine hand.

17:12 And she said, As thy Elohim liveth, I have not a cake, but an 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 EliYah said unto her, Fear not; go and do as thou hast said: but make me thereof a little cake first, and bring it unto me, and after make for thee and for thy son.

17:14 For thus saith Elohim of Israel, The barrel of meal shall not waste, neither shall the cruse of oil fail, until the day that sendeth rain upon the earth.

17:15 And she went and did according to the saying of EliYah: 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 , which he spake by EliYah.

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 sore, that there was no breath left in him.

17:18 And she said unto EliYah, What have I to do with thee, O thou man of Elohim? art thou come unto me to call my sin to remembrance, and to slay my son?

17:19 And he said unto 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 unto , and said, O my Elohim, 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 unto , and said, O my Elohim, I pray thee, let this child's soul come into him again.

17:22 And heard the voice of EliYah; and the soul of the child came into him again, and he revived.

17:23 And EliYah took the child, and brought him down out of the chamber into the house, and delivered him unto his mother: and EliYah said, See, thy son liveth.

17:24 And the woman said to EliYah, Now by this I know that thou art a man of Elohim, and that the word of in thy mouth is truth.
