Elijah Flees to Horeb

1 Now Ahab told Jezebel1 everything Elijah had done and how he had killed2 all the prophets with the sword. 2 So Jezebel sent a messenger to Elijah to say, "May the gods deal with me, be it ever so severely,3 if by this time tomorrow I do not make your life like that of one of them."4 3 Elijah was afraida and ran5 for his life.6 When he came to Beersheba7 in Judah, he left his servant there, 4 while he himself went a day's journey into the desert. He came to a broom tree,8 sat down under it and prayed that he might die. "I have had enough, LORD," he said. "Take my life;9 I am no better than my ancestors." 5 Then he lay down under the tree and fell asleep.10 All at once an angel11 touched him and said, "Get up and eat." 6 He looked around, and there by his head was a cake of bread baked over hot coals, and a jar of water. He ate and drank and then lay down again. 7 The angel of the LORD came back a second time and touched him and said, "Get up and eat, for the journey is too much for you."
