And Elias the Thesbite, of the inhabitants of Galaad, said to Achab: As the Lord liveth, the God of Israel, in whose sight I stand, there shall not be dew nor rain these years, but according to the words of my mouth.
And the word of the Lord came to him, saying:
Get thee hence, and go towards the east, and hide thyself by the torrent of Carith, which is over against the Jordan;
And there thou shalt drink of the torrent: and I have commanded the ravens to feed thee there.
So he went, and did according to the word of the Lord: and going, he dwelt by the torrent Carith, which is over against the Jordan.
And the ravens brought him bread and flesh in the morning, and bread and flesh in the evening; and he drank of the torrent.
