And Elijaha the Tishbite, who was of the inhabitants of Gilead,said unto Ahab, As the LORDGod of Israelliveth,before whom I stand , there shall not be dew nor rain these years, but according to my word.2
And the word of the LORD came unto him, saying ,
3Get thee hence, and turn thee eastward, and hide thyself by the brookCherith, that is beforeJordan.4
And it shall be, that thou shalt drink of the brook; and I have commanded the ravens to feed thee there.
So he went and did according unto the word of the LORD: for he went and dwelt by the brookCherith, that is beforeJordan.6
And the ravensbrought him bread and flesh in the morning, and bread and flesh in the evening; and he drank of the brook.
