Now Elijah the Tishbite, of Tishbe a in Gilead, said to Ahab, "As the Lord the God of Israel lives, before whom I stand, there shall be neither dew nor rain these years, except by my word."
The word of the Lord came to him, saying,
"Go from here and turn eastward, and hide yourself by the Wadi Cherith, which is east of the Jordan.
You shall drink from the wadi, and I have commanded the ravens to feed you there."
So he went and did according to the word of the Lord; he went and lived by the Wadi Cherith, which is east of the Jordan.
The ravens brought him bread and meat in the morning, and bread and meat in the evening; and he drank from the wadi.
