Now Elijah, who was from Tishbe in Gilead, told King Ahab, “As surely as the LORD, the God of Israel, lives—the God I serve—there will be no dew or rain during the next few years until I give the word!”
Then the LORD said to Elijah,
“Go to the east and hide by Kerith Brook, near where it enters the Jordan River.
Drink from the brook and eat what the ravens bring you, for I have commanded them to bring you food.”
So Elijah did as the LORD told him and camped beside Kerith Brook, east of the Jordan.
The ravens brought him bread and meat each morning and evening, and he drank from the brook.
