1 Kings 19:1-8View Full Chapter
Elijah Flees to Horeb 1Now Ahab told Jezebel everything Elijah had done and how he had killed all the prophets with the sword.
2So Jezebel sent a messenger to Elijah to say, “May the gods deal with me, be it ever so severely, if by this time tomorrow I do not make your life like that of one of them.”
3Elijah was afraid
5Then he lay down under the bush and fell asleep. All at once an angel touched him and said, “Get up and eat.”
6He looked around, and there by his head was some bread baked over hot coals, and a jar of water. He ate and drank and then lay down again. 7The angel of the LORD came back a second time and touched him and said, “Get up and eat, for the journey is too much for you.” 8So he got up and ate and drank. Strengthened by that food, he traveled forty days and forty nights until he reached Horeb, the mountain of God.
