1 Elijah the Tishbite, of Tishbe in Gilead, said to Ahab, 'By the life of Yahweh, God of Israel, whom I serve, there will be neither dew nor rain these coming years unless I give the word.'
Jas 5:17 Luke 1:17 1Kgs 22:14 2Kgs 3:14 Deut 10:8 Luke 4:25-26 1Kgs 18:1
2 The word of Yahweh came to him,
1Chr 17:3 1Kgs 12:22 Hos 1:1-2 Jer 7:1 Jer 11:1 Jer 18:1
3 'Go away from here, go east and hide by the torrent of Cherith, east of the Jordan.
1Kgs 22:25 Acts 17:14 Heb 11:38 Jer 36:19 Jer 36:26 John 8:59 Ps 31:20
4 You can drink from the stream, and I have ordered the ravens to bring you food there.'
1Kgs 17:9 1Kgs 19:5-8 Ps 147:9 Job 34:29 Job 38:8-13 Job 38:41 Matt 4:4
5 So he set out and did as Yahweh had said; he went and stayed by the torrent of Cherith, east of the Jordan.
1Kgs 19:9 John 15:14 Matt 16:24 Prov 3:5
6 The ravens brought him bread in the morning and meat in the evening, and he quenched his thirst at the stream.
Exod 16:35 Hab 3:17-18 Heb 6:18 Heb 13:5-6 Isa 33:16 Jer 37:21 Jer 40:4
7 But after a while the stream dried up, for the country had had no rain.
Isa 54:10 Isa 40:30-31
8 And then the word of Yahweh came to him,
Heb 13:6 1Kgs 17:2 Gen 22:14 Isa 41:17
9 'Up and go to Zarephath in Sidonia, and stay there. I have ordered a widow there to give you food.'
Luke 4:26 Obad 1:20 1Kgs 17:4 2Cor 4:7 Judg 7:2 Judg 7:4 Matt 15:21-22
10 So he went off to Sidon. And when he reached the city gate, there was a widow gathering sticks. Addressing her he said, 'Please bring a little water in a pitcher for me to drink.'
Gen 24:17 John 4:7 2Cor 11:27 Gen 21:15 Heb 11:37
11 She was on her way to fetch it when he called after her. 'Please', he said, 'bring me a scrap of bread in your hand.'
1Kgs 17:9 1Kgs 18:4 Gen 18:5 Gen 24:18-19 Heb 13:2 Matt 10:42 Matt 25:35-40
12 'As Yahweh your God lives,' she replied, 'I have no baked bread, but only a handful of meal in a jar and a little oil in a jug; I am just gathering a stick or two to go and prepare this for myself and my son to eat, and then we shall die.'
1Kgs 17:1 2Kgs 4:2-7 Gen 21:16 1Sam 14:39 1Sam 14:45 1Sam 20:3 1Sam 20:21
13 But Elijah said to her, 'Do not be afraid, go and do as you have said; but first make a little scone of it for me and bring it to me, and then make some for yourself and for your son.
1Pet 1:7 2Chr 20:17 2Kgs 6:16 Acts 27:24 Exod 14:13 Gen 22:1-2 Heb 11:17
14 For Yahweh, God of Israel, says this: Jar of meal shall not be spent, jug of oil shall not be emptied, before the day when Yahweh sends rain on the face of the earth.'
2Kgs 3:16 2Kgs 4:2-7 1Kgs 17:4 2Kgs 4:42-44 2Kgs 7:1 2Kgs 9:6 Matt 14:17-20
15 The woman went and did as Elijah told her and they ate the food, she, himself and her son.
2Chr 20:20 Gen 6:22 Gen 12:4 Gen 22:3 Heb 11:7-8 Heb 11:17 John 11:40
16 The jar of meal was not spent nor the jug of oil emptied, just as Yahweh had foretold through Elijah.
1Kgs 13:5 1Kgs 16:12 John 4:50-51 Luke 1:37 Luke 1:45 Matt 9:28-30 Matt 19:26
17 It happened after this that the son of the mistress of the house fell sick; his illness was so severe that in the end he expired.
1Pet 1:7 1Pet 4:12 2Kgs 4:18-20 Dan 5:23 Gen 22:1-2 Jas 1:2-4 Jas 1:12
18 And the woman said to Elijah, 'What quarrel have you with me, man of God? Have you come here to bring my sins home to me and to kill my son?'
2Kgs 3:13 Luke 4:34 Luke 5:8 2Sam 16:10 John 2:4 1Kgs 13:1 1Kgs 18:9
19 'Give me your son,' he said and, taking him from her lap, he carried him to the upper room where he was staying and laid him on his bed.
2Kgs 4:32 2Kgs 4:10 2Kgs 4:21 Acts 9:37
20 He cried out to Yahweh, 'Yahweh my God, by killing her son do you mean to bring grief even to the widow who is looking after me?'
1Kgs 18:36-37 1Sam 7:8-9 2Kgs 19:4 2Kgs 19:15 Exod 17:4 Gen 18:23-25 Jas 5:15-18
21 He stretched himself on the child three times and cried out to Yahweh, 'Yahweh my God, may the soul of this child, I beg you, come into him again!'
Acts 20:10 2Kgs 4:33-35 Acts 9:40 Heb 11:19 Acts 10:10
22 Yahweh heard Elijah's prayer and the child's soul came back into his body and he revived.
1Sam 2:6 2Kgs 13:21 Acts 20:12 Deut 32:39 Heb 11:35 John 5:28-29 John 11:43
23 Elijah took the child, brought him down from the upper room into the house, and gave him to his mother. 'Look,' Elijah said, 'your son is alive.'
2Kgs 4:36-37 Acts 9:41 Heb 11:35 Luke 7:15
24 And the woman replied, 'Now I know you are a man of God and the word of Yahweh in your mouth is truth itself.'
