1 Kings 17:1-7

Elijah and the ravens

1 Elijah from Tishbe, who was one of the settlers in Gilead, said to Ahab, "As surely as the LORD lives, Israel's God, the one I serve, there will be neither dew nor rain these years unless I say so."
2 Then the LORD's word came to Elijah:
3 Go from here and turn east. Hide by the Cherith Brook that faces the Jordan River.
4 You can drink from the brook. I have also ordered the ravens to provide for you there.
5 Elijah went and did just what the LORD said. He stayed by the Cherith Brook that faced the Jordan River.
6 The ravens brought bread and meat in the mornings and evenings. He drank from the Cherith Brook.
7 After a while the brook dried up because there was no rain in the land.
