Chapter 18

  1. 1. And it came to pass after many
    H7227
    days,
    H3117
    that the word
    H1697
    of the LORD
    H3068
    came to Elijah
    H452
    in the third
    H7992
    year,
    H8141
    saying,
    H559
    Go,
    H3212
    shew
    H7200
    thyself unto Ahab;
    H256
    and I will send
    H5414
    rain
    H4306
    upon
    H6440
    the earth.
    H127
  2. 2. And Elijah
    H452
    went
    H3212
    to shew
    H7200
    himself unto Ahab.
    H256
    And there was a sore
    H2389
    famine
    H7458
    in Samaria.
    H8111
  3. 3. And Ahab
    H256
    called
    H7121
    Obadiah,
    H5662
    which was the governor of his house.
    H1004
    (Now Obadiah
    H5662
    feared
    H3373
    the LORD
    H3068
    greatly:
    H3966
  4. 4. For it was so, when Jezebel
    H348
    cut off
    H3772
    the prophets
    H5030
    of the LORD,
    H3068
    that Obadiah
    H5662
    took
    H3947
    an hundred
    H3967
    prophets,
    H5030
    and hid
    H2244
    them by fifty
    H2572
    in
    H376
    a cave,
    H4631
    and fed
    H3557
    them with bread
    H3899
    and water.)
    H4325
  5. 5. And Ahab
    H256
    said
    H559
    unto Obadiah,
    H5662
    Go
    H3212
    into the land,
    H776
    unto all fountains
    H4599
    of water,
    H4325
    and unto all brooks:
    H5158
    peradventure
    H194
    we may find
    H4672
    grass
    H2682
    to save
    H2421
    the horses
    H5483
    and mules
    H6505
    alive,
    H2421
    that we lose
    H3772
    not all the beasts.
    H929
  6. 6. So they divided
    H2505
    the land
    H776
    between them to pass throughout
    H5674
    it: Ahab
    H256
    went
    H1980
    one
    H259
    way
    H1870
    by himself, and Obadiah
    H5662
    went
    H1980
    another
    H259
    way
    H1870
    by himself.
  7. 7. And as Obadiah
    H5662
    was in the way,
    H1870
    behold, Elijah
    H452
    met
    H7125
    him: and he knew
    H5234
    him, and fell
    H5307
    on his face,
    H6440
    and said,
    H559
    Art thou that my lord
    H113
    Elijah?
    H452
  8. 8. And he answered
    H559
    him, I am: go,
    H3212
    tell
    H559
    thy lord,
    H113
    Behold, Elijah
    H452
    is here.
  9. 9. And he said,
    H559
    What have I sinned,
    H2398
    that thou wouldest deliver
    H5414
    thy servant
    H5650
    into the hand
    H3027
    of Ahab,
    H256
    to slay
    H4191
    me?
  10. 10. As the LORD
    H3068
    thy God
    H430
    liveth,
    H2416
    there is no
    H3426
    nation
    H1471
    or kingdom,
    H4467
    whither
    H834
    my lord
    H113
    hath not sent
    H7971
    to seek
    H1245
    thee: and when they said,
    H559
    He is not there; he took an oath
    H7650
    of the kingdom
    H4467
    and nation,
    H1471
    that they found
    H4672
    thee not.
  11. 11. And now thou sayest,
    H559
    Go,
    H3212
    tell
    H559
    thy lord,
    H113
    Behold, Elijah
    H452
    is here.
  12. 12. And it shall come to pass, as soon as I am gone
    H3212
    from thee, that the Spirit
    H7307
    of the LORD
    H3068
    shall carry
    H5375
    thee whither I know
    H3045
    not; and so when I come
    H935
    and tell
    H5046
    Ahab,
    H256
    and he cannot find
    H4672
    thee, he shall slay
    H2026
    me: but I thy servant
    H5650
    fear
    H3372
    the LORD
    H3068
    from my youth.
    H5271
  13. 13. Was it not told
    H5046
    my lord
    H113
    what I did
    H6213
    when Jezebel
    H348
    slew
    H2026
    the prophets
    H5030
    of the LORD,
    H3068
    how I hid
    H2244
    an hundred
    H3967
    men
    H376
    of the LORD'S
    H3068
    prophets
    H5030
    by fifty
    H2572
    in a cave,
    H4631
    and fed
    H3557
    them with bread
    H3899
    and water?
    H4325
  14. 14. And now thou sayest,
    H559
    Go,
    H3212
    tell
    H559
    thy lord,
    H113
    Behold, Elijah
    H452
    is here: and he shall slay
    H2026
    me.
  15. 15. And Elijah
    H452
    said,
    H559
    As the LORD
    H3068
    of hosts
    H6635
    liveth,
    H2416
    before
    H6440
    whom I stand,
    H5975
    I will surely shew
    H7200
    myself unto him to day.
    H3117
  16. 16. So Obadiah
    H5662
    went
    H3212
    to meet
    H7125
    Ahab,
    H256
    and told
    H5046
    him: and Ahab
    H256
    went
    H3212
    to meet
    H7125
    Elijah.
    H452
  17. 17. And it came to pass, when Ahab
    H256
    saw
    H7200
    Elijah,
    H452
    that Ahab
    H256
    said
    H559
    unto him, Art thou he that troubleth
    H5916
    Israel?
    H3478
  18. 18. And he answered,
    H559
    I have not troubled
    H5916
    Israel;
    H3478
    but thou, and thy father's
    H1
    house,
    H1004
    in that ye have forsaken
    H5800
    the commandments
    H4687
    of the LORD,
    H3068
    and thou hast followed
    H3212
    H310
    Baalim.
    H1168
  19. 19. Now therefore send,
    H7971
    and gather
    H6908
    to me all Israel
    H3478
    unto mount
    H2022
    Carmel,
    H3760
    and the prophets
    H5030
    of Baal
    H1168
    four
    H702
    hundred
    H3967
    and fifty,
    H2572
    and the prophets
    H5030
    of the groves
    H842
    four
    H702
    hundred,
    H3967
    which eat
    H398
    at Jezebel's
    H348
    table.
    H7979
  20. 20. So Ahab
    H256
    sent
    H7971
    unto all the children
    H1121
    of Israel,
    H3478
    and gathered
    H6908
    the prophets
    H5030
    together
    H6908
    unto mount
    H2022
    Carmel.
    H3760
  21. 21. And Elijah
    H452
    came
    H5066
    unto all the people,
    H5971
    and said,
    H559
    How long
    H5921
    halt
    H6452
    ye between two
    H8147
    opinions?
    H5587
    if the LORD
    H3068
    be God,
    H430
    follow him: but if Baal,
    H1168
    then follow
    H3212
    H310
    him. And the people
    H5971
    answered
    H6030
    him not a word.
    H1697
  22. 22. Then said
    H559
    Elijah
    H452
    unto the people,
    H5971
    I, even I only, remain
    H3498
    a prophet
    H5030
    of the LORD;
    H3068
    but Baal's
    H1168
    prophets
    H5030
    are four
    H702
    hundred
    H3967
    and fifty
    H2572
    men.
    H376
  23. 23. Let them therefore give
    H5414
    us two
    H8147
    bullocks;
    H6499
    and let them choose
    H977
    one
    H259
    bullock
    H6499
    for themselves, and cut it in pieces,
    H5408
    and lay
    H7760
    it on wood,
    H6086
    and put
    H7760
    no fire
    H784
    under: and I will dress
    H6213
    the other
    H259
    bullock,
    H6499
    and lay
    H5414
    it on wood,
    H6086
    and put
    H7760
    no fire
    H784
    under:
  24. 24. And call
    H7121
    ye on the name
    H8034
    of your gods,
    H430
    and I will call
    H7121
    on the name
    H8034
    of the LORD:
    H3068
    and the God
    H430
    that answereth
    H6030
    by fire,
    H784
    let him be God.
    H430
    And all the people
    H5971
    answered
    H6030
    and said,
    H559
    It is well
    H2896
    spoken.
    H1697
  25. 25. And Elijah
    H452
    said
    H559
    unto the prophets
    H5030
    of Baal,
    H1168
    Choose
    H977
    you one
    H259
    bullock
    H6499
    for yourselves, and dress
    H6213
    it first;
    H7223
    for ye are many;
    H7227
    and call
    H7121
    on the name
    H8034
    of your gods,
    H430
    but put
    H7760
    no fire
    H784
    under.
  26. 26. And they took
    H3947
    the bullock
    H6499
    which was given
    H5414
    them, and they dressed
    H6213
    it, and called
    H7121
    on the name
    H8034
    of Baal
    H1168
    from morning
    H1242
    even until noon,
    H6672
    saying,
    H559
    O Baal,
    H1168
    hear
    H6030
    us. But there was no
    H369
    voice,
    H6963
    nor any that answered.
    H6030
    And they leaped
    H6452
    upon the altar
    H4196
    which was made.
    H6213
  27. 27. And it came to pass at noon,
    H6672
    that Elijah
    H452
    mocked
    H2048
    them, and said,
    H559
    Cry
    H7121
    aloud:
    H6963
    H1419
    for he is a god;
    H430
    either he is talking,
    H7879
    or he is pursuing,
    H7873
    or he is in a journey,
    H1870
    or peradventure
    H194
    he sleepeth,
    H3463
    and must be awaked.
    H3364
  28. 28. And they cried
    H7121
    aloud,
    H1419
    H6963
    and cut
    H1413
    themselves after their manner
    H4941
    with knives
    H2719
    and lancets,
    H7420
    till the blood
    H1818
    gushed out
    H8210
    upon them.
  29. 29. And it came to pass, when midday
    H6672
    was past,
    H5674
    and they prophesied
    H5012
    until the time of the offering
    H5927
    of the evening sacrifice,
    H4503
    that there was neither voice,
    H6963
    nor any to answer,
    H6030
    nor any that regarded.
    H7182
  30. 30. And Elijah
    H452
    said
    H559
    unto all the people,
    H5971
    Come near
    H5066
    unto me. And all the people
    H5971
    came near
    H5066
    unto him. And he repaired
    H7495
    the altar
    H4196
    of the LORD
    H3068
    that was broken down.
    H2040
  31. 31. And Elijah
    H452
    took
    H3947
    twelve
    H6240
    H8147
    stones,
    H68
    according to the number
    H4557
    of the tribes
    H7626
    of the sons
    H1121
    of Jacob,
    H3290
    unto whom the word
    H1697
    of the LORD
    H3068
    came, saying,
    H559
    Israel
    H3478
    shall be thy name:
    H8034
  32. 32. And with the stones
    H68
    he built
    H1129
    an altar
    H4196
    in the name
    H8034
    of the LORD:
    H3068
    and he made
    H6213
    a trench
    H8585
    about
    H5439
    the altar,
    H4196
    as great as would contain
    H1004
    two measures
    H5429
    of seed.
    H2233
  33. 33. And he put
    H6186
    the wood
    H6086
    in order,
    H6186
    and cut
    H5408
    the bullock
    H6499
    in pieces, and laid
    H7760
    him on the wood,
    H6086
    and said,
    H559
    Fill
    H4390
    four
    H702
    barrels
    H3537
    with water,
    H4325
    and pour
    H3332
    it on the burnt sacrifice,
    H5930
    and on the wood.
    H6086
  34. 34. And he said,
    H559
    Do it the second time.
    H8138
    And they did it the second time.
    H8138
    And he said,
    H559
    Do it the third time.
    H8027
    And they did it the third time.
    H8027
  35. 35. And the water
    H4325
    ran
    H3212
    round about
    H5439
    the altar;
    H4196
    and he filled
    H4390
    the trench
    H8585
    also with water.
    H4325
  36. 36. And it came to pass at the time of the offering
    H5927
    of the evening sacrifice,
    H4503
    that Elijah
    H452
    the prophet
    H5030
    came near,
    H5066
    and said,
    H559
    LORD
    H3068
    God
    H430
    of Abraham,
    H85
    Isaac,
    H3327
    and of Israel,
    H3478
    let it be known
    H3045
    this day
    H3117
    that thou art God
    H430
    in Israel,
    H3478
    and that I am thy servant,
    H5650
    and that I have done
    H6213
    all these things at thy word.
    H1697
  37. 37. Hear
    H6030
    me, O LORD,
    H3068
    hear
    H6030
    me, that this people
    H5971
    may know
    H3045
    that thou art the LORD
    H3068
    God,
    H430
    and that thou hast turned
    H5437
    their heart
    H3820
    back
    H5437
    again.
    H322
  38. 38. Then the fire
    H784
    of the LORD
    H3068
    fell,
    H5307
    and consumed
    H398
    the burnt sacrifice,
    H5930
    and the wood,
    H6086
    and the stones,
    H68
    and the dust,
    H6083
    and licked up
    H3897
