Elijah walked a whole day into the wilderness. He stopped and sat down in the shade of a tree and wished he would die. "It's too much, Lord," he prayed. "Take away my life; I might as well be dead!" 1
He lay down under the tree and fell asleep. Suddenly an angel touched him and said, "Wake up and eat."
He looked around and saw a loaf of bread and a jar of water near his head. He ate and drank, and lay down again.
The Lord's angel returned and woke him up a second time, saying, "Get up and eat, or the trip will be too much for you."
Elijah got up, ate and drank, and the food gave him enough strength to walk forty days to Sinai, the holy mountain.
