    18:1 And it came to pass [after] many 7227 days 3117, that the word 1697 of the LORD 3068 came to Elijah 452 in the third 7992 year 8141, saying 559 8800, Go 3212 8798, shew 7200 8734 thyself unto Ahab 256; and I will send 5414 8799 rain 4306 upon 6440 the earth 127.

    18:2 And Elijah 452 went 3212 8799 to shew 7200 8736 himself unto Ahab 256. And [there was] a sore 2389 famine 7458 in Samaria 8111.

    18:3 And Ahab 256 called 7121 8799 Obadiah 5662, which [was] the governor of [his] house 1004. (Now Obadiah 5662 feared 3373 the LORD 3068 greatly 3966:(Obadiah: Heb. Obadiahu)(the governor…: Heb. over his house)

    18:4 For it was [so], when Jezebel 348 cut off 3772 8687 the prophets 5030 of the LORD 3068, that Obadiah 5662 took 3947 8799 an hundred 3967 prophets 5030, and hid 2244 8686 them by fifty 376 2572 in a cave 4631, and fed 3557 8773 them with bread 3899 and water 4325.)(Jezebel: Heb. Izebel)

    18:5 And Ahab 256 said 559 8799 unto Obadiah 5662, Go 3212 8798 into the land 776, unto all fountains 4599 of water 4325, and unto all brooks 5158: peradventure 194 we may find 4672 8799 grass 2682 to save 2421 8762 the horses 5483 and mules 6505 alive 2421 8762, that we lose 3772 8686 not all the beasts 929.(that…: Heb. that we cut not off ourselves from the beasts)

    18:6 So they divided 2505 8762 the land 776 between them to pass throughout 5674 8800 it: Ahab 256 went 1980 8804 one 259 way 1870 by himself, and Obadiah 5662 went 1980 8804 another 259 way 1870 by himself.

    18:7 And as Obadiah 5662 was in the way 1870, behold, Elijah 452 met 7125 8800 him: and he knew 5234 8686 him, and fell 5307 8799 on his face 6440, and said 559 8799, [Art] thou that my lord 113 Elijah 452?

    18:8 And he answered 559 8799 him, I [am]: go 3212 8798, tell 559 8798 thy lord 113, Behold, Elijah 452 [is here].

    18:9 And he said 559 8799, What have I sinned 2398 8804, that thou wouldest deliver 5414 8802 thy servant 5650 into the hand 3027 of Ahab 256, to slay 4191 8687 me?

    18:10 [As] the LORD 3068 thy God 430 liveth 2416, there is no 3426 nation 1471 or kingdom 4467, whither 834 my lord 113 hath not sent 7971 8804 to seek 1245 8763 thee: and when they said 559 8804, [He is] not [there]; he took an oath 7650 8689 of the kingdom 4467 and nation 1471, that they found 4672 8799 thee not.

    18:11 And now thou sayest 559 8802, Go 3212 8798, tell 559 8798 thy lord 113, Behold, Elijah 452 [is here].

    18:12 And it shall come to pass, [as soon as] I am gone 3212 8799 from thee, that the Spirit 7307 of the LORD 3068 shall carry 5375 8799 thee whither I know 3045 8799 not; and [so] when I come 935 8804 and tell 5046 8687 Ahab 256, and he cannot find 4672 8799 thee, he shall slay 2026 8804 me: but I thy servant 5650 fear 3372 8804 the LORD 3068 from my youth 5271.

    18:13 Was it not told 5046 8717 my lord 113 what I did 6213 8804 when Jezebel 348 slew 2026 8800 the prophets 5030 of the LORD 3068, how I hid 2244 8686 an hundred 3967 men 376 of the LORD'S 3068 prophets 5030 by fifty 2572 in a cave 4631, and fed 3557 8770 them with bread 3899 and water 4325?

    18:14 And now thou sayest 559 8802, Go 3212 8798, tell 559 8798 thy lord 113, Behold, Elijah 452 [is here]: and he shall slay 2026 8804 me.

    18:15 And Elijah 452 said 559 8799, [As] the LORD 3068 of hosts 6635 liveth 2416, before 6440 whom I stand 5975 8804, I will surely shew 7200 8735 myself unto him to day 3117.

    18:16 So Obadiah 5662 went 3212 8799 to meet 7125 8800 Ahab 256, and told 5046 8686 him: and Ahab 256 went 3212 8799 to meet 7125 8800 Elijah 452.

    18:17 And it came to pass, when Ahab 256 saw 7200 8800 Elijah 452, that Ahab 256 said 559 8799 unto him, [Art] thou he that troubleth 5916 8802 Israel 3478?

    18:18 And he answered 559 8799, I have not troubled 5916 8804 Israel 3478; but thou, and thy father's 1 house 1004, in that ye have forsaken 5800 8800 the commandments 4687 of the LORD 3068, and thou hast followed 3212 8799 310 Baalim 1168.

    18:19 Now therefore send 7971 8798, [and] gather 6908 8798 to me all Israel 3478 unto mount 2022 Carmel 3760, and the prophets 5030 of Baal 1168 four 702 hundred 3967 and fifty 2572, and the prophets 5030 of the groves 842 four 702 hundred 3967, which eat 398 8802 at Jezebel's 348 table 7979.

    18:20 So Ahab 256 sent 7971 8799 unto all the children 1121 of Israel 3478, and gathered 6908 0 the prophets 5030 together 6908 8799 unto mount 2022 Carmel 3760.

    18:21 And Elijah 452 came 5066 8799 unto all the people 5971, and said 559 8799, How long 5921 halt 6452 8802 ye between two 8147 opinions 5587? if the LORD 3068 [be] God 430, follow him: but if Baal 1168, [then] follow 3212 8798 310 him. And the people 5971 answered 6030 8804 him not a word 1697.(opinions: or, thoughts)

    18:22 Then said 559 8799 Elijah 452 unto the people 5971, I, [even] I only, remain 3498 8738 a prophet 5030 of the LORD 3068; but Baal's 1168 prophets 5030 [are] four 702 hundred 3967 and fifty 2572 men 376.

    18:23 Let them therefore give 5414 8799 us two 8147 bullocks 6499; and let them choose 977 8799 one 259 bullock 6499 for themselves, and cut it in pieces 5408 8762, and lay 7760 8799 [it] on wood 6086, and put 7760 8799 no fire 784 [under]: and I will dress 6213 8799 the other 259 bullock 6499, and lay 5414 8804 [it] on wood 6086, and put 7760 8799 no fire 784 [under]:

    18:24 And call 7121 8804 ye on the name 8034 of your gods 430, and I will call 7121 8799 on the name 8034 of the LORD 3068: and the God 430 that answereth 6030 8799 by fire 784, let him be God 430. And all the people 5971 answered 6030 8799 and said 559 8799, It is well 2896 spoken 1697.(It is…: Heb. The word is good)

    18:25 And Elijah 452 said 559 8799 unto the prophets 5030 of Baal 1168, Choose 977 8798 you one 259 bullock 6499 for yourselves, and dress 6213 8798 [it] first 7223; for ye [are] many 7227; and call 7121 8798 on the name 8034 of your gods 430, but put 7760 8799 no fire 784 [under].

    18:26 And they took 3947 8799 the bullock 6499 which was given 5414 8804 them, and they dressed 6213 8799 [it], and called 7121 8799 on the name 8034 of Baal 1168 from morning 1242 even until noon 6672, saying 559 8800, O Baal 1168, hear 6030 8798 us. But [there was] no 369 voice 6963, nor any that answered 6030 8802. And they leaped 6452 8762 upon the altar 4196 which was made 6213 8804.(hear: or, answer)(answered: or, heard)(leaped…: or, leaped up and down at the altar)

    18:27 And it came to pass at noon 6672, that Elijah 452 mocked 2048 8762 them, and said 559 8799, Cry 7121 8798 aloud 1419 6963: for he [is] a god 430; either he is talking 7879, or he is pursuing 7873, or he is in a journey 1870, [or] peradventure 194 he sleepeth 3463, and must be awaked 3364 8799.(aloud: Heb. with a great voice)(he is talking: or, he meditateth)(is pursuing: Heb. hath a pursuit)

    18:28 And they cried 7121 8799 aloud 6963 1419, and cut 1413 8704 themselves after their manner 4941 with knives 2719 and lancets 7420, till the blood 1818 gushed out 8210 8800 upon them.(the blood…: Heb. poured out blood upon them)

    18:29 And it came to pass, when midday 6672 was past 5674 8800, and they prophesied 5012 8691 until the [time] of the offering 5927 8800 of the [evening] sacrifice 4503, that [there was] neither voice 6963, nor any to answer 6030 8802, nor any that regarded 7182.(offering: Heb. ascending)(that regarded: Heb. attention)

    18:30 And Elijah 452 said 559 8799 unto all the people 5971, Come near 5066 8798 unto me. And all the people 5971 came near 5066 8799 unto him. And he repaired 7495 8762 the altar 4196 of the LORD 3068 [that was] broken down 2040 8803.

    18:31 And Elijah 452 took 3947 8799 twelve 8147 6240 stones 68, according to the number 4557 of the tribes 7626 of the sons 1121 of Jacob 3290, unto whom the word 1697 of the LORD 3068 came, saying 559 8800, Israel 3478 shall be thy name 8034:

    18:32 And with the stones 68 he built 1129 8799 an altar 4196 in the name 8034 of the LORD 3068: and he made 6213 8799 a trench 8585 about 5439 the altar 4196, as great as would contain 1004 two measures 5429 of seed 2233.

    18:33 And he put 6186 0 the wood 6086 in order 6186 8799, and cut 5408 8762 the bullock 6499 in pieces, and laid 7760 8799 [him] on the wood 6086, and said 559 8799, Fill 4390 8798 four 702 barrels 3537 with water 4325, and pour 3332 8798 [it] on the burnt sacrifice 5930, and on the wood 6086.

    18:34 And he said 559 8799, Do [it] the second time 8138 8798. And they did [it] the second time 8138 8799. And he said 559 8799, Do [it] the third time 8027 8761. And they did [it] the third time 8027 8762.

    18:35 And the water 4325 ran 3212 8799 round about 5439 the altar 4196; and he filled 4390 8765 the trench 8585 also with water 4325.(ran: Heb. went)

    18:36 And it came to pass at [the time of] the offering 5927 8800 of the [evening] sacrifice 4503, that Elijah 452 the prophet 5030 came near 5066 8799, and said 559 8799, LORD 3068 God 430 of Abraham 85, Isaac 3327, and of Israel 3478, let it be known 3045 8735 this day 3117 that thou [art] God 430 in Israel 3478, and [that] I [am] thy servant 5650, and [that] I have done 6213 8804 all these things at thy word 1697.

    18:37 Hear 6030 8798 me, O LORD 3068, hear 6030 8798 me, that this people 5971 may know 3045 8799 that thou [art] the LORD 3068 God 430, and [that] thou hast turned 5437 0 their heart 3820 back 5437 8689 again 322.

    18:38 Then the fire 784 of the LORD 3068 fell 5307 8799, and consumed 398 8799 the burnt sacrifice 5930, and the wood 6086, and the stones 68, and the dust 6083, and licked up 3897 8765 the water 4325 that [was] in the trench 8585.

    18:39 And when all the people 5971 saw 7200 8799 [it], they fell 5307 8799 on their faces 6440: and they said 559 8799, The LORD 3068, he [is] the God 430; the LORD 3068, he [is] the God 430.

    18:40 And Elijah 452 said 559 8799 unto them, Take 8610 8798 the prophets 5030 of Baal 1168; let not one 376 of them escape 4422 8735. And they took 8610 8799 them: and Elijah 452 brought them down 3381 8686 to the brook 5158 Kishon 7028, and slew 7819 8799 them there.(Take: or, Apprehend)

    18:41 And Elijah 452 said 559 8799 unto Ahab 256, Get thee up 5927 8798, eat 398 8798 and drink 8354 8798; for [there is] a sound 6963 of abundance 1995 of rain 1653.(a sound…: or, a sound of a noise of rain)

    18:42 So Ahab 256 went up 5927 8799 to eat 398 8800 and to drink 8354 8800. And Elijah 452 went up 5927 8804 to the top 7218 of Carmel 3760; and he cast himself down 1457 8799 upon the earth 776, and put 7760 8799 his face 6440 between his knees 1290,

    18:43 And said 559 8799 to his servant 5288, Go up 5927 8798 now, look 5027 8685 toward 1870 the sea 3220. And he went up 5927 8799, and looked 5027 8686, and said 559 8799, [There is] nothing 3972. And he said 559 8799, Go again 7725 8798 seven 7651 times 6471.

    18:44 And it came to pass at the seventh time 7637, that he said 559 8799, Behold, there ariseth 5927 8802 a little 6996 cloud 5645 out of the sea 3220, like a man's 376 hand 3709. And he said 559 8799, Go up 5927 8798, say 559 8798 unto Ahab 256, Prepare 631 8798 [thy chariot], and get thee down 3381 8798, that the rain 1653 stop 6113 8799 thee not.(Prepare: Heb. Tie, or, Bind)

    18:45 And it came to pass in the mean while 3541, that the heaven 8064 was black 6937 8694 with clouds 5645 and wind 7307, and there was a great 1419 rain 1653. And Ahab 256 rode 7392 8799, and went 3212 8799 to Jezreel 3157.

    18:46 And the hand 3027 of the LORD 3068 was on Elijah 452; and he girded up 8151 8762 his loins 4975, and ran 7323 8799 before 6440 Ahab 256 to the entrance 935 8800 of Jezreel 3157.(to the…: Heb. till thou come to Jezreel)
