NLT 8 Then the said to Elijah, NIV 8 Then the word of the LORD came to him: NLT 9 “Go and live in the village of Zarephath, near the city of Sidon. I have instructed a widow there to feed you.” NIV 9 "Go at once to Zarephath of Sidon and stay there. I have commanded a widow in that place to supply you with food." NLT 10 So he went to Zarephath. As he arrived at the gates of the village, he saw a widow gathering sticks, and he asked her, “Would you please bring me a little water in a cup?” NIV 10 So he went to Zarephath.

NLT 12 But she said, “I swear by the your God that I don’t have a single piece of bread in the house. And I have only a handful of flour left in the jar and a little cooking oil in the bottom of the jug. I was just gathering a few sticks to cook this last meal, and then my son and I will die.” NIV 12 "As surely as the LORD your God lives," she replied, "I don't have any bread--only a handful of flour in a jar and a little oil in a jug. I am gathering a few sticks to take home and make a meal for myself and my son, that we may eat it--and die." NLT 13 But Elijah said to her, “Don’t be afraid! Go ahead and do just what you’ve said, but make a little bread for me first. Then use what’s left to prepare a meal for yourself and your son. NIV 13 Elijah said to her, "Don't be afraid. Go home and do as you have said. But first make a small cake of bread for me from what you have and bring it to me, and then make something for yourself and your son.

" NLT 15 So she did as Elijah said, and she and Elijah and her family continued to eat for many days. NIV 15 She went away and did as Elijah had told her.
