Now Elijah, who was from Tishbe in Gilead, told King Ahab, "As surely as the LORD, the God of Israel, lives -- the God whom I worship and serve -- there will be no dew or rain during the next few years unless I give the word!"
Then the LORD said to Elijah,
"Go to the east and hide by Kerith Brook at a place east of where it enters the Jordan River.
Drink from the brook and eat what the ravens bring you, for I have commanded them to bring you food."
So Elijah did as the LORD had told him and camped beside Kerith Brook.
The ravens brought him bread and meat each morning and evening, and he drank from the brook.
