|1st Kings 18|
King James Bible
But he himself went1 a day's journey into the wilderness, and came4 and sat down4 under a juniper tree: and he requested4 for himself that he might die;2 and said,4 It is enough; now, O LORD, take away3 my life; for I [am] not better than my fathers.
And he said,4 I have been very15 jealous14 for the LORD God of hosts: for the children of Israel have forsaken1 thy covenant, thrown down1 thine altars, and slain1 thy prophets with the sword; and I, [even] I only, am left;11 and they seek17 my life, to take it away.2
And he said,4 Go forth,3 and stand1 upon the mount before the LORD. And, behold, the LORD passed by,6 and a great and strong wind rent18 the mountains, and brake in pieces18 the rocks before the LORD; [but] the LORD [was] not in the wind: and after the wind an earthquake; [but] the LORD [was] not in the earthquake:
And it was [so], when Elijah heard2 [it], that he wrapped55 his face in his mantle, and went out,4 and stood4 in the entering in of the cave. And, behold, [there came] a voice unto him, and said,4 What doest thou here, Elijah?
And he said,4 I have been very15 jealous14 for the LORD God of hosts: because the children of Israel have forsaken1 thy covenant, thrown down1 thine altars, and slain1 thy prophets with the sword; and I, [even] I only, am left;11 and they seek17 my life, to take it away.2
So he departed4 thence, and found4 Elisha the son of Shaphat, who [was] plowing6 [with] twelve 6240 yoke [of oxen] before him, and he with the twelfth: 6240 and Elijah passed by4 him, and cast55 his mantle upon him.
And he left4 the oxen, and ran4 after Elijah, and said,4 Let me, I pray thee, kiss4 my father and my mother, and [then] I will follow4 310 thee. And he said4 unto him, Go3 back again:3 for what have I done1 to thee?
And he returned back4 from him, and took4 a yoke of oxen, and slew4 them, and boiled14 their flesh with the instruments of the oxen, and gave4 unto the people, and they did eat.4 Then he arose,4 and went4 after Elijah, and ministered17 unto him.
