Week 21 Scriptures
1 Kings 17:1-7 KJV
1 And Elijah the Tishbite, who was of the inhabitants of Gilead, said unto Ahab, As the Lord God of Israel liveth, before whom I stand, there shall not be dew nor rain these years, but according to my word.
2 And the word of the Lord came unto him, saying,
3 Get thee hence, and turn thee eastward, and hide thyself by the brook Cherith, that is before Jordan.
4 And it shall be, that thou shalt drink of the brook; and I have commanded the ravens to feed thee there.
5 So he went and did according unto the word of the Lord: for he went and dwelt by the brook Cherith, that is before Jordan.
6 And the ravens brought him bread and flesh in the morning, and bread and flesh in the evening; and he drank of the brook.
7 And it came to pass after a while, that the brook dried up, because there had been no rain in the land.
1 Kings 17:1-7 NIRV
1 Elijah was from Tishbe in the land of Gilead. He said to Ahab, “I serve the Lord. He is the God of Israel. You can be sure that he lives. And you can be just as sure that there won’t be any dew or rain on the whole land. There won’t be any during the next few years. It won’t come until I say so.”
2 Then a message came to Elijah from the Lord. He said,
3 “Leave this place. Go east and hide in the Kerith Valley. It is east of the Jordan River.
4 You will drink water from the brook. I have directed some ravens to supply you with food there.”
5 So Elijah did what the Lord had told him to do. He went to the Kerith Valley. It was east of the Jordan River. He stayed there.
6 The ravens brought him bread and meat in the morning. They also brought him bread and meat in the evening. He drank water from the brook.
7 Some time later the brook dried up. It hadn’t rained in the land for quite a while.
