one And Elijah the Thessian from the inhabitants of Gilead said unto Ahab, The Lord God of Israel lives, before whom I stand! in these years there will be no dew or rain, unless in my words.
2 And the word of the Lord came to him:
3 go from here and turn east and hide at the Horaf stream, which is opposite the Jordan;
4 you will drink from this stream, and I have told the ravens to feed you there.
5 And he went and did according to the word of the Lord; He went and stayed at the stream of Horaf, which is against the Jordan.
6 And the crows brought him bread and meat in the morning, and bread and meat in the evening, and he drank from the stream.
7 After some time, this stream dried up, because there was no rain on the ground.

eight And the word of the Lord came to him:
nine get up and go to Zarephath of Sidon, and stay there; I told the widow woman to feed you there.
ten And he arose and went to Zarephath; and when he came to the gates of the city, behold, there a woman widow collects firewood. And he called her and said: give me some water in the vessel to get drunk.
eleven And she went to take; and he screamed after her and said: Take for me a piece of bread in your hands.
12 She said: the Lord your God lives! I have nothing baked, but only have a handful of flour in a tub and a little oil in a jug; and behold, I will gather two logs of wood, and I will go and prepare it for myself and for my son; eat it and die.
thirteen And Elijah said to her: Do not be afraid, go, do what you said; but first of this make a little unleavened bread for me and bring it to me; but for yourself and for your son you will do after;
fourteen for thus says the Lord God of Israel: the flour in the tub will not be exhausted, and the oil in the jug will not wane until the day when the Lord rains the earth.
fifteen And she went and did as Elijah said; and she fed, and he, and her house for a while.
sixteen The flour in the tub was not exhausted, and the oil in the jug did not decrease, according to the word of the Lord, which He spoke through Elijah.

17 After that, the son of this woman, the mistress of the house, fell ill, and his illness was so severe that there was no breath left in him.
18 And she said to Elijah: what am I and you, man of God? You came to me to remind my sins and put to death my son.
19 And he said to her, Give me your son. And he took it from her hands, and carried it to the chamber, where he lived, and laid it on his bed,
twenty and called to the Lord and said: Lord, my God! Can you do evil to the widow whom I abide by killing her son?
21 And having prostrated himself over the lad three times, he called to the Lord and said: Lord, my God! may the soul of this youth return to him!
22 And the Lord heard the voice of Elijah, and the soul of this youth returned to him, and he came to life.
23 And Elijah took the lad, and brought him from the upper room to the house, and gave it to his mother, and Elijah said: Look, your son is alive.
24 And that woman of Elijah said: Now I know that you are a man of God, and that the word of the Lord is true in your mouth.
