It happened after a while, that the brook dried up, because there was no rain in the land.
The word of the LORD came to him, saying,
Arise, get you to Tzarfat, which belongs to Tzidon, and dwell there: behold, I have commanded a widow there to sustain you.
So he arose and went to Tzarfat; and when he came to the gate of the city, behold, a widow was there gathering sticks: and he called to her, and said, Please get me a little water in a vessel, that I may drink.
As she was going to get it, he called to her, and said, Please bring me a morsel of bread in your hand.
She said, As the LORD your God lives, I aren't they a cake, but a handful of meal in the jar, and a little oil in the jar: and, behold, I am gathering two sticks, that I may go in and bake it for me and my son, that we may eat it, and die.
Eliyah said to her, Don't be afraid; go and do as you have said; but make me of it a little cake first, and bring it forth to me, and afterward make for you and for your son.
For thus says the LORD, the God of Yisra'el, The jar of meal shall not empty, neither shall the jar of oil fail, until the day that the LORD sends rain on the eretz.
She went and did according to the saying of Eliyah: and she, and he, and her house, ate [many] days.
The jar of meal didn't empty, neither did the jar of oil fail, according to the word of the LORD, which he spoke by Eliyah.
It happened after these things, that the son of the woman, the mistress of the house, fell sick; and his sickness was so sore, that there was no breath left in him.
She said to Eliyah, What have I to do with you, you man of God? you are come to me to bring my sin to memory, and to kill my son!
He said to her, Give me your son. He took him out of her bosom, and carried him up into the chamber, where he abode, and laid him on his own bed.
He cried to the LORD, and said, LORD my God, have you also brought evil on the widow with whom I sojourn, by killing her son?
He stretched himself on the child three times, and cried to the LORD, and said, LORD my God, please let this child's soul come into him again.
The LORD listened to the voice of Eliyah; and the soul of the child came into him again, and he revived.
Eliyah took the child, and brought him down out of the chamber into the house, and delivered him to his mother; and Eliyah said, Behold, your son lives.
The woman said to Eliyah, Now I know that you are a man of God, and that the word of the LORD in your mouth is truth.
