1 KINGS 17:17 – 18:10
17:17 Then after these things the son of the woman, the mistress of the house, became ill; and his illness was so severe that there was no breath left in him.
17:18 And she said to Elijah, What have I done to you, O man of God, that you have come to me to recall my iniquity and kill my son?
17:19 And he said to her, Bring me your son. And he took him out of her bosom and carried him up into the upper chamber where he was staying, and he laid him upon his own bed.
17:20 And he cried to Jehovah and said, Jehovah, my God, have You also brought evil upon the widow, to whom I am a guest, by slaying her son?
17:21 And he stretched himself upon the child three times and cried to Jehovah and said, Jehovah, my God, I beg You, let this child’s soul come into him again!
17:22 And Jehovah listened to the voice of Elijah; and the child’s soul came into him again, and he lived.
17:23 And Elijah took the child and brought him down from the upper room into the house and gave him to his mother. And Elijah said, See, your son is alive.
17:24 And the woman said to Elijah, Now by this I know that you are a man of God and that the word of Jehovah in your mouth is truth.
18:1 Then after many days the word of Jehovah came to Elijah in the third year, saying, Go, present yourself to Ahab; and I will send rain upon the face of the earth.
18:2 And Elijah went to present himself to Ahab. And the famine was severe in Samaria.
18:3 And Ahab called for Obadiah, who was over his house. (Now Obadiah feared Jehovah greatly.
18:4 And when Jezebel cut off the prophets of Jehovah, Obadiah took a hundred prophets and hid them by fifties in a cave and kept them fed with bread and water.)
18:5 And Ahab said to Obadiah, Go through the land, to all the springs of water and to all the brooks; perhaps we will find grass to keep the horses and the mules alive and not lose some of the animals.
18:6 And they divided the land between them in order to pass through it: Ahab went one way by himself, and Obadiah went another way by himself.
18:7 And while Obadiah was on the way, Elijah met him at that moment; and he recognized him and fell on his face and said, Is it indeed you, my lord Elijah?
18:8 And he said to him, It is I. Go and say to your lord, Elijah is here.
18:9 And he said, What sin have I committed, that you give your servant into the hand of Ahab to put me to death?
18:10 As Jehovah your God lives, there is no nation or kingdom that my lord has not sent men into in order to seek you; and when they said, He is not here, he had an oath taken from the kingdom or nation that they had not found you there.
