1 Kings 17

Chapter 17

17:1  And Elijah the Tishbite, who was of the inhabitants of Gilead, said unto Ahab, As the LORD God of Israel liveth, before whom I stand, there shall not be dew nor rain these years, but according to my word.

Elijah Heb. "Elijahu," Luke 1:17 ; 4:25 called Elias.

Ahab It was a small thing for a man whose life was passed in Jehovah's presence to stand before Ahab.

17:9  Arise, get thee to Zarephath, which belongeth to Zidon, and dwell there: behold, I have commanded a widow woman there to sustain thee.

Zarephath called Sarepta, Obadiah 1:20 ; Luke 4:26 .
