He replied, "I have been very zealous3 for the LORD God Almighty. The Israelites have rejected your covenant,4 broken down your altars,5 and put your prophets to death with the sword. I am the only one left,6 and now they are trying to kill me too."
The LORD said, "Go out and stand on the mountain7 in the presence of the LORD, for the LORD is about to pass by."8 Then a great and powerful wind9 tore the mountains apart and shattered10 the rocks before the LORD, but the LORD was not in the wind. After the wind there was an earthquake, but the LORD was not in the earthquake.
