1 Kings 18 Text (WEB)
  1. It happened after many days, that the word of Yahweh came to Elijah, in the third year, saying, "Go, show yourself to Ahab; and I will send rain on the earth."
  2. Elijah went to show himself to Ahab. The famine was severe in Samaria.
  3. Ahab called Obadiah, who was over the household. (Now Obadiah feared Yahweh greatly:
  4. for it was so, when Jezebel cut off the prophets of Yahweh, that Obadiah took one hundred prophets, and hid them by fifty in a cave, and fed them with bread and water.)
  5. Ahab said to Obadiah, "Go through the land, to all the springs of water, and to all the brooks. Perhaps we may find grass and save the horses and mules alive, that we not lose all the animals."
  6. So they divided the land between them to pass throughout it: Ahab went one way by himself, and Obadiah went another way by himself.
  7. As Obadiah was in the way, behold, Elijah met him: and he recognized him, and fell on his face, and said, "Is it you, my lord Elijah?"
  8. He answered him, "It is I. Go, tell your lord, 'Behold, Elijah is here!'"
  9. He said, "Wherein have I sinned, that you would deliver your servant into the hand of Ahab, to kill me?
  10. As Yahweh your God lives, there is no nation or kingdom, where my lord has not sent to seek you. When they said, 'He is not here,' he took an oath of the kingdom and nation, that they didn't find you.
  11. Now you say, 'Go, tell your lord, "Behold, Elijah is here."'
  12. It will happen, as soon as I am gone from you, that the Spirit of Yahweh will carry you I don't know where; and so when I come and tell Ahab, and he can't find you, he will kill me. But I, your servant, have feared Yahweh from my youth.
  13. Wasn't it told my lord what I did when Jezebel killed the prophets of Yahweh, how I hid one hundred men of Yahweh's prophets with fifty to a cave, and fed them with bread and water?
  14. Now you say, 'Go, tell your lord, "Behold, Elijah is here;"' and he will kill me."
  15. Elijah said, "As Yahweh of Armies lives, before whom I stand, I will surely show myself to him today."
  16. So Obadiah went to meet Ahab, and told him; and Ahab went to meet Elijah.
  17. It happened, when Ahab saw Elijah, that Ahab said to him, "Is that you, you troubler of Israel?"
  18. He answered, "I have not troubled Israel; but you, and your father's house, in that you have forsaken the commandments of Yahweh, and you have followed the Baals.
  19. Now therefore send, and gather to me all Israel to Mount Carmel, and four hundred fifty of the prophets of Baal, and four hundred of the prophets of the Asherah, who eat at Jezebel's table."
  20. So Ahab sent to all the children of Israel, and gathered the prophets together to Mount Carmel.
  21. Elijah came near to all the people, and said, "How long will you waver between the two sides? If Yahweh is God, follow him; but if Baal, then follow him." The people answered him not a word.
  22. Then Elijah said to the people, "I, even I only, am left a prophet of Yahweh; but Baal's prophets are four hundred fifty men.
  23. Let them therefore give us two bulls; and let them choose one bull for themselves, and cut it in pieces, and lay it on the wood, and put no fire under; and I will dress the other bull, and lay it on the wood, and put no fire under it.
  24. You call on the name of your god, and I will call on the name of Yahweh. The God who answers by fire, let him be God." All the people answered, "It is well said."
  25. Elijah said to the prophets of Baal, "Choose one bull for yourselves, and dress it first; for you are many; and call on the name of your god, but put no fire under it."
  26. They took the bull which was given them, and they dressed it, and called on the name of Baal from morning even until noon, saying, Baal, hear us. But there was no voice, nor any who answered. They leaped about the altar which was made.
  27. It happened at noon, that Elijah mocked them, and said, "Cry aloud; for he is a god. Either he is musing, or he has gone aside, or he is on a journey, or perhaps he sleeps and must be awakened."
  28. They cried aloud, and cut themselves in their way with knives and lances, until the blood gushed out on them.
  29. It was so, when midday was past, that they prophesied until the time of the offering of the offering; but there was neither voice, nor any to answer, nor any who regarded.
  30. Elijah said to all the people, "Come near to me;" and all the people came near to him. He repaired the altar of Yahweh that was thrown down.
  31. Elijah took twelve stones, according to the number of the tribes of the sons of Jacob, to whom the word of Yahweh came, saying, "Israel shall be your name."
  32. With the stones he built an altar in the name of Yahweh. He made a trench around the altar, large enough to contain two measures of seed.
  33. He put the wood in order, and cut the bull in pieces, and laid it on the wood. He said, "Fill four jars with water, and pour it on the burnt offering, and on the wood."
  34. He said, "Do it a second time;" and they did it the second time. He said, "Do it a third time;" and they did it the third time.
  35. The water ran around the altar; and he also filled the trench with water.
  36. It happened at the time of the offering of the offering, that Elijah the prophet came near, and said, "Yahweh, the God of Abraham, of Isaac, and of Israel, let it be known this day that you are God in Israel, and that I am your servant, and that I have done all these things at your word.
  37. Hear me, Yahweh, hear me, that this people may know that you, Yahweh, are God, and that you have turned their heart back again."
  38. Then the fire of Yahweh fell, and consumed the burnt offering, and the wood, and the stones, and the dust, and licked up the water that was in the trench.
  39. When all the people saw it, they fell on their faces. They said, "Yahweh, he is God! Yahweh, he is God!"
  40. Elijah said to them, "Seize the prophets of Baal! Don't let one of them escape!" They seized them. Elijah brought them down to the brook Kishon, and killed them there.
  41. Elijah said to Ahab, "Get up, eat and drink; for there is the sound of abundance of rain."
  42. So Ahab went up to eat and to drink. Elijah went up to the top of Carmel; and he bowed himself down on the earth, and put his face between his knees.
  43. He said to his servant, "Go up now, look toward the sea." He went up, and looked, and said, "There is nothing." He said, "Go again" seven times.
  44. It happened at the seventh time, that he said, "Behold, a small cloud, like a man's hand, is rising out of the sea." He said, "Go up, tell Ahab, 'Get ready and go down, so that the rain doesn't stop you.'"
  45. It happened in a little while, that the sky grew black with clouds and wind, and there was a great rain. Ahab rode, and went to Jezreel.
  46. The hand of Yahweh was on Elijah; and he tucked his cloak into his belt and ran before Ahab to the entrance of Jezreel.

  1. ויהי ימים רבים ודבר־יהוה היה אל־אליהו בשנה השלישית לאמר לך הראה אל־אחאב ואתנה מטר על־פני האדמה׃
  2. וילך אליהו להראות אל־אחאב והרעב חזק בשמרון׃
  3. ויקרא אחאב אל־עבדיהו אשר על־הבית ועבדיהו היה ירא את־יהוה מאד׃
  4. ויהי בהכרית איזבל את נביאי יהוה ויקח עבדיהו מאה נבאים ויחביאם חמשים איש במערה וכלכלם לחם ומים׃
  5. ויאמר אחאב אל־עבדיהו לך בארץ אל־כל־מעיני המים ואל כל־הנחלים אולי נמצא חציר ונחיה סוס ופרד ולוא נכרית מהבהמה׃
  6. ויחלקו להם את־הארץ לעבר־בה אחאב הלך בדרך אחד לבדו ועבדיהו הלך בדרך־אחד לבדו׃
  7. ויהי עבדיהו בדרך והנה אליהו לקראתו ויכרהו ויפל על־פניו ויאמר האתה זה אדני אליהו׃
  8. ויאמר לו אני לך אמר לאדניך הנה אליהו׃
  9. ויאמר מה חטאתי כי־אתה נתן את־עבדך ביד־אחאב להמיתני׃
  10. חי יהוה אלהיך אם־יש־גוי וממלכה אשר לא־שלח אדני שם לבקשך ואמרו אין והשביע את־הממלכה ואת־הגוי כי לא ימצאכה׃
  11. ועתה אתה אמר לך אמר לאדניך הנה אליהו׃
  12. והיה אני אלך מאתך ורוח יהוה ישאך על אשר לא־אדע ובאתי להגיד לאחאב ולא ימצאך והרגני ועבדך ירא את־יהוה מנערי׃
  13. הלא־הגד לאדני את אשר־עשיתי בהרג איזבל את נביאי יהוה ואחבא מנביאי יהוה מאה איש חמשים חמשים איש במערה ואכלכלם לחם ומים׃

  15. ויאמר אליהו חי יהוה צבאות אשר עמדתי לפניו כי היום אראה אליו׃
  16. וילך עבדיהו לקראת אחאב ויגד־לו וילך אחאב לקראת אליהו׃
  17. ויהי כראות אחאב את־אליהו ויאמר אחאב אליו האתה זה עכר ישראל׃
  18. ויאמר לא עכרתי את־ישראל כי אם־אתה ובית אביך בעזבכם את־מצות יהוה ותלך אחרי הבעלים׃
  19. ועתה שלח קבץ אלי את־כל־ישראל אל־הר הכרמל ואת־נביאי הבעל ארבע מאות וחמשים ונביאי האשרה ארבע מאות אכלי שלחן איזבל׃
  20. וישלח אחאב בכל־בני ישראל ויקבץ את־הנביאים אל־הר הכרמל׃
  21. ויגש אליהו אל־כל־העם ויאמר עד־מתי אתם פסחים על־שתי הסעפים אם־יהוה האלהים לכו אחריו ואם־הבעל לכו אחריו ולא־ענו העם אתו דבר׃
  22. ויאמר אליהו אל־העם אני נותרתי נביא ליהוה לבדי ונביאי הבעל ארבע־מאות וחמשים איש׃
  23. ויתנו־לנו שנים פרים ויבחרו להם הפר האחד וינתחהו וישימו על־העצים ואש לא ישימו ואני אעשה את־הפר האחד ונתתי על־העצים ואש לא אשים׃
  24. וקראתם בשם אלהיכם ואני אקרא בשם־יהוה והיה האלהים אשר־יענה באש הוא האלהים ויען כל־העם ויאמרו טוב הדבר׃
  25. ויאמר אליהו לנביאי הבעל בחרו לכם הפר האחד ועשו ראשנה כי אתם הרבים וקראו בשם אלהיכם ואש לא תשימו׃
  26. ויקחו את־הפר אשר־נתן להם ויעשו ויקראו בשם־הבעל מהבקר ועד־הצהרים לאמר הבעל עננו ואין קול ואין ענה ויפסחו על־המזבח אשר עשה׃
  27. ויהי בצהרים ויהתל בהם אליהו ויאמר קראו בקול־גדול כי־אלהים הוא כי שיח וכי־שיג לו וכי־דרך לו אולי ישן הוא ויקץ׃
  28. ויקראו בקול גדול ויתגדדו כמשפטם בחרבות וברמחים עד־שפך־דם עליהם׃
  29. ויהי כעבר הצהרים ויתנבאו עד לעלות המנחה ואין־קול ואין־ענה ואין קשב׃
  30. ויאמר אליהו לכל־העם גשו אלי ויגשו כל־העם אליו וירפא את־מזבח יהוה ההרוס׃
  31. ויקח אליהו שתים עשרה אבנים כמספר שבטי בני־יעקב אשר היה דבר־יהוה אליו לאמר ישראל יהיה שמך׃
  32. ויבנה את־האבנים מזבח בשם יהוה ויעש תעלה כבית סאתים זרע סביב למזבח׃
  33. ויאמר שנו וישנו ויאמר שלשו וישלשו׃
  34. ויאמר שנו וישנו ויאמר שלשו וישלשו׃
  35. וילכו המים סביב למזבח וגם את־התעלה מלא־מים׃
  36. ויהי בעלות המנחה ויגש אליהו הנביא ויאמר יהוה אלהי אברהם יצחק וישראל היום יודע כי־אתה אלהים בישראל ואני עבדך עשיתי את כל־הדברים האלה׃
  37. ענני יהוה ענני וידעו העם הזה כי־אתה יהוה האלהים ואתה הסבת את־לבם אחרנית׃
  38. ותפל אש־יהוה ותאכל את־העלה ואת־העצים ואת־האבנים ואת־העפר ואת־המים אשר־בתעלה לחכה׃
  39. וירא כל־העם ויפלו על־פניהם ויאמרו יהוה הוא האלהים יהוה הוא האלהים׃
  40. ויאמר אליהו להם תפשו את־נביאי הבעל איש אל־ימלט מהם ויתפשום ויורדם אליהו אל־נחל קישון וישחטם שם׃
  41. ויאמר אליהו לאחאב עלה אכל ושתה כי־קול המון הגשם׃
  42. ויעלה אחאב לאכל ולשתות ואליהו עלה אל־ראש הכרמל ויגהר ארצה וישם פניו בין ׃
  43. ויאמר אל־נערו עלה־נא הבט דרך־ים ויעל ויבט ויאמר אין מאומה ויאמר שב שבע פעמים׃
  44. ויהי בשבעית ויאמר הנה־עב קטנה ככף־איש עלה מים ויאמר עלה אמר אל־אחאב אסר ורד ולא יעצרכה הגשם׃
  45. ויהי עד־כה ועד־כה והשמים התקדרו עבים ורוח ויהי גשם גדול וירכב אחאב וילך יזרעאלה׃
  46. ויד־יהוה היתה אל־אליהו וישנס מתניו וירץ לפני אחאב עד־באכה יזרעאלה׃

  1. και εγενετο μεθ' ημερας πολλας και ρημα κυριου εγενετο προς ηλιου εν τω ενιαυτω τω τριτω λεγων πορευθητι και οφθητι τω αχααβ και δωσω υετον επι προσωπον της
  2. και επορευθη ηλιου του οφθηναι τω αχααβ και η λιμος κραταια εν
  3. και εκαλεσεν αχααβ τον αβδιου τον οικονομον και αβδιου ην φοβουμενος τον κυριον
  4. και εγενετο εν τω τυπτειν την ιεζαβελ τους προφητας κυριου και ελαβεν αβδιου εκατον ανδρας προφητας και εκρυψεν αυτους κατα πεντηκοντα εν σπηλαιω και διετρεφεν αυτους εν αρτω και
  5. και ειπεν αχααβ προς αβδιου δευρο και διελθωμεν επι την γην επι πηγας των υδατων και επι χειμαρρους εαν πως ευρωμεν βοτανην και περιποιησωμεθα ιππους και ημιονους και ουκ εξολοθρευθησονται απο των
  6. και εμερισαν εαυτοις την οδον του διελθειν αυτην αχααβ επορευθη εν οδω μια μονος και αβδιου επορευθη εν οδω αλλη
  7. και ην αβδιου εν τη οδω μονος και ηλθεν ηλιου εις συναντησιν αυτου μονος και αβδιου εσπευσεν και επεσεν επι προσωπον αυτου και ειπεν ει συ ει αυτος κυριε μου
  8. και ειπεν ηλιου αυτω εγω πορευου λεγε τω κυριω σου ιδου
  9. και ειπεν αβδιου τι ημαρτηκα οτι διδως τον δουλον σου εις χειρα αχααβ του θανατωσαι
  10. ζη κυριος ο θεος σου ει εστιν εθνος η βασιλεια ου ουκ απεσταλκεν ο κυριος μου ζητειν σε και ειπον ουκ εστιν και ενεπρησεν την βασιλειαν και τας χωρας αυτης οτι ουχ ευρηκεν
  11. και νυν συ λεγεις πορευου αναγγελλε τω κυριω σου ιδου
  12. και εσται εαν εγω απελθω απο σου και πνευμα κυριου αρει σε εις γην ην ουκ οιδα και εισελευσομαι απαγγειλαι τω αχααβ και αποκτενει με και ο δουλος σου εστιν φοβουμενος τον κυριον εκ νεοτητος
  13. η ουκ απηγγελη σοι τω κυριω μου οια πεποιηκα εν τω αποκτεινειν ιεζαβελ τους προφητας κυριου και εκρυψα απο των προφητων κυριου εκατον ανδρας ανα πεντηκοντα εν σπηλαιω και εθρεψα εν αρτοις και
  14. και νυν συ λεγεις μοι πορευου λεγε τω κυριω σου ιδου ηλιου και αποκτενει
  15. και ειπεν ηλιου ζη κυριος των δυναμεων ω παρεστην ενωπιον αυτου οτι σημερον οφθησομαι
  16. και επορευθη αβδιου εις συναντην τω αχααβ και απηγγειλεν αυτω και εξεδραμεν αχααβ και επορευθη εις συναντησιν
  17. και εγενετο ως ειδεν αχααβ τον ηλιου και ειπεν αχααβ προς ηλιου ει συ ει αυτος ο διαστρεφων τον
  18. και ειπεν ηλιου ου διαστρεφω τον ισραηλ οτι αλλ' η συ και ο οικος του πατρος σου εν τω καταλιμπανειν υμας τον κυριον θεον υμων και επορευθης οπισω των
  19. και νυν αποστειλον συναθροισον προς με παντα ισραηλ εις ορος το καρμηλιον και τους προφητας της αισχυνης τετρακοσιους και πεντηκοντα και τους προφητας των αλσων τετρακοσιους εσθιοντας τραπεζαν
  20. και απεστειλεν αχααβ εις παντα ισραηλ και επισυνηγαγεν παντας τους προφητας εις ορος το
  21. και προσηγαγεν ηλιου προς παντας και ειπεν αυτοις ηλιου εως ποτε υμεις χωλανειτε επ' αμφοτεραις ταις ιγνυαις ει εστιν κυριος ο θεος πορευεσθε οπισω αυτου ει δε ο βααλ αυτος πορευεσθε οπισω αυτου και ουκ απεκριθη ο λαος
  22. και ειπεν ηλιου προς τον λαον εγω υπολελειμμαι προφητης του κυριου μονωτατος και οι προφηται του βααλ τετρακοσιοι και πεντηκοντα ανδρες και οι προφηται του αλσους
  23. δοτωσαν ημιν δυο βοας και εκλεξασθωσαν εαυτοις τον ενα και μελισατωσαν και επιθετωσαν επι των ξυλων και πυρ μη επιθετωσαν και εγω ποιησω τον βουν τον αλλον και πυρ ου μη
  24. και βοατε εν ονοματι θεων υμων και εγω επικαλεσομαι εν ονοματι κυριου του θεου μου και εσται ο θεος ος εαν επακουση εν πυρι ουτος θεος και απεκριθησαν πας ο λαος και ειπον καλον το ρημα ο
  25. και ειπεν ηλιου τοις προφηταις της αισχυνης εκλεξασθε εαυτοις τον μοσχον τον ενα και ποιησατε πρωτοι οτι πολλοι υμεις και επικαλεσασθε εν ονοματι θεου υμων και πυρ μη
  26. και ελαβον τον μοσχον και εποιησαν και επεκαλουντο εν ονοματι του βααλ εκ πρωιθεν εως μεσημβριας και ειπον επακουσον ημων ο βααλ επακουσον ημων και ουκ ην φωνη και ουκ ην ακροασις και διετρεχον επι του θυσιαστηριου ου
  27. και εγενετο μεσημβρια και εμυκτηρισεν αυτους ηλιου ο θεσβιτης και ειπεν επικαλεισθε εν φωνη μεγαλη οτι θεος εστιν οτι αδολεσχια αυτω εστιν και αμα μηποτε χρηματιζει αυτος η μηποτε καθευδει αυτος και
  28. και επεκαλουντο εν φωνη μεγαλη και κατετεμνοντο κατα τον εθισμον αυτων εν μαχαιραις και σειρομασταις εως εκχυσεως αιματος επ'
  29. και επροφητευον εως ου παρηλθεν το δειλινον και εγενετο ως ο καιρος του αναβηναι την θυσιαν και ουκ ην φωνη και ελαλησεν ηλιου ο θεσβιτης προς τους προφητας των προσοχθισματων λεγων μεταστητε απο του νυν και εγω ποιησω το ολοκαυτωμα μου και μετεστησαν και
  30. και ωκοδομησεν τους λιθους εν ονοματι κυριου και ιασατο το θυσιαστηριον το κατεσκαμμενον και εποιησεν θααλα χωρουσαν δυο μετρητας σπερματος κυκλοθεν του
  31. και ελαβεν ηλιου δωδεκα λιθους κατ' αριθμον φυλων του ισραηλ ως ελαλησεν κυριος προς αυτον λεγων ισραηλ εσται το ονομα
  32. και ωκοδομησεν τους λιθους εν ονοματι κυριου και ιασατο το θυσιαστηριον το κατεσκαμμενον και εποιησεν θααλα χωρουσαν δυο μετρητας σπερματος κυκλοθεν του

  35. και διεπορευετο το υδωρ κυκλω του θυσιαστηριου και την θααλα επλησαν
  36. και ανεβοησεν ηλιου εις τον ουρανον και ειπεν κυριε ο θεος αβρααμ και ισαακ και ισραηλ επακουσον μου κυριε επακουσον μου σημερον εν πυρι και γνωτωσαν πας ο λαος ουτος οτι συ ει κυριος ο θεος ισραηλ καγω δουλος σου και δια σε πεποιηκα τα εργα

  38. και επεσεν πυρ παρα κυριου εκ του ουρανου και κατεφαγεν το ολοκαυτωμα και τας σχιδακας και το υδωρ το εν τη θααλα και τους λιθους και τον χουν εξελιξεν το
  39. και επεσεν πας ο λαος επι προσωπον αυτων και ειπον αληθως κυριος εστιν ο θεος αυτος ο
  40. και ειπεν ηλιου προς τον λαον συλλαβετε τους προφητας του βααλ μηθεις σωθητω εξ αυτων και συνελαβον αυτους και καταγει αυτους ηλιου εις τον χειμαρρουν κισων και εσφαξεν αυτους
  41. και ειπεν ηλιου τω αχααβ αναβηθι και φαγε και πιε οτι φωνη των ποδων του

1 Kings 18 Text (Latin)
  1. Post dies multos factum est verbum Domini ad Eliam, in anno tertio, dicens : Vade, et ostende te Achab, ut dem pluviam super faciem terræ.
  2. Ivit ergo Elias, ut ostenderet se Achab : erat autem fames vehemens in Samaria.
  3. Vocavitque Achab Abdiam dispensatorem domus suæ : Abdias autem timebat Dominum valde.
  4. Nam cum interficeret Jezabel prophetas Domini, tulit ille centum prophetas, et abscondit eos quinquagenos et quinquagenos in speluncis, et pavit eos pane et aqua.
  5. Dixit ergo Achab ad Abdiam : Vade in terram ad universos fontes aquarum, et in cunctas valles, si forte possimus invenire herbam, et salvare equos et mulos, et non penitus jumenta intereant.
  6. Diviseruntque sibi regiones ut circuirent eas : Achab ibat per viam unam, et Abdias per viam alteram seorsum.
  7. Cumque esset Abdias in via, Elias occurrit ei : qui cum cognovisset eum, cecidit super faciem suam, et ait : Num tu es, domine mi, Elias ?
  8. Cui ille respondit : Ego. Vade, et dic domino tuo : Adest Elias.
  9. Et ille, quid peccavi, inquit, quoniam tradis me servum tuum in manu Achab, ut interficiat me ?
  10. Vivit Dominus Deus tuus, quia non est gens aut regnum, quo non miserit dominus meus te requirens : et respondentibus cunctis : Non est hic : adjuravit regna singula et gentes, eo quod minime reperireris.
  11. Et nunc tu dicis mihi : Vade, et dic domino tuo : Adest Elias.
  12. Cumque recessero a te, spiritus Domini asportabit te in locum quem ego ignoro : et ingressus nuntiabo Achab, et non inveniens te, interficiet me : servus autem tuus timet Dominum ab infantia sua.
  13. Numquid non indicatum est tibi domino meo, quid fecerim cum interficeret Jezabel prophetas Domini, quod absconderim de prophetis Domini centum viros, quinquagenos et quinquagenos, in speluncis, et paverim eos pane et aqua ?
  14. Et nunc tu dicis : Vade, et dic domino tuo : Adest Elias : ut interficiat me ?
  15. Et dixit Elias : Vivit Dominus exercituum, ante cujus vultum sto, quia hodie apparebo ei.
  16. Abiit ergo Abdias in occursum Achab, et indicavit ei : venitque Achab in occursum Eliæ.
  17. Et cum vidisset eum, ait : Tune es ille, qui conturbas Israël ?
  18. Et ille ait : Non ego turbavi Israël, sed tu, et domus patris tui, qui dereliquistis mandata Domini, et secuti estis Baalim.
  19. Verumtamen nunc mitte, et congrega ad me universum Israël in monte Carmeli, et prophetas Baal quadringentos quinquaginta, prophetasque lucorum quadringentos, qui comedunt de mensa Jezabel.
  20. Misit Achab ad omnes filios Israël, et congregavit prophetas in monte Carmeli.
  21. Accedens autem Elias ad omnem populum, ait : Usquequo claudicatis in duas partes ? Si Dominus est Deus, sequimini eum : si autem Baal, sequimini illum. Et non respondit ei populus verbum.
  22. Et ait rursus Elias ad populum : Ego remansi propheta Domini solus : prophetæ autem Baal quadringenti et quinquaginta viri sunt.
  23. Dentur nobis duo boves, et illi eligant sibi bovem unum, et in frustra cædentes ponant super ligna, ignem autem non supponant : et ego faciam bovem alterum, et imponam super ligna, ignem autem non supponam.
  24. Invocate nomina deorum vestrorum, et ego invocabo nomen Domini mei : et Deus qui exaudierit per ignem, ipse sit Deus. Respondens omnis populus ait : Optima propositio.
  25. Dixit ergo Elias prophetis Baal : Eligite vobis bovem unum, et facite primi, quia vos plures estis : et invocate nomina deorum vestrorum, ignemque non supponatis.
  26. Qui cum tulissent bovem, quem dederat ei, fecerunt : et invocabant nomen Baal de mane usque ad meridiem, dicentes : Baal, exaudi nos. Et non erat vox, nec qui responderet : transiliebantque altare quod fecerant.
  27. Cumque esset jam meridies, illudebat illis Elias, dicens : Clamate voce majore : deus enim est, et forsitan loquitur, aut in diversorio est, aut in itinere, aut certe dormit, ut excitetur.
  28. Clamabant ergo voce magna, et incidebant se juxta ritum suum cultris et lanceolis, donec perfunderentur sanguine.
  29. Postquam autem transiit meridies, et illis prophetantibus venerat tempus quo sacrificium offerri solet, nec audiebatur vox, nec aliquis respondebat, nec attendebat orantes :
  30. dixit Elias omni populo : Venite ad me. Et accedente ad se populo, curavit altare Domini, quod destructum fuerat.
  31. Et tulit duodecim lapides juxta numerum tribuum filiorum Jacob, ad quem factus est sermo Domini, dicens : Israël erit nomen tuum.
  32. Et ædificavit de lapidibus altare in nomine Domini : fecitque aquæductum, quasi per duas aratiunculas in circuitu altaris,
  33. et composuit ligna : divisitque per membra bovem, et posuit super ligna,
  34. et ait : Implete quatuor hydrias aqua, et fundite super holocaustum, et super ligna. Rursumque dixit : Etiam secundo hoc facite. Qui cum fecissent secundo, ait : Etiam tertio idipsum facite. Feceruntque tertio,
  35. et currebant aquæ circum altare, et fossa aquæductus repleta est.
  36. Cumque jam tempus esset ut offerretur holocaustum, accedens Elias propheta ait : Domine Deus Abraham, et Isaac, et Israël, ostende hodie quia tu es Deus Israël, et ego servus tuus, et juxta præceptum tuum feci omnia verba hæc.
  37. Exaudi me Domine, exaudi me : ut discat populus iste, quia tu es Dominus Deus, et tu convertisti cor eorum iterum.
  38. Cecidit autem ignis Domini, et voravit holocaustum, et ligna, et lapides, pulverem quoque, et aquam quæ erat in aquæductu lambens.
  39. Quod cum vidisset omnis populus, cecidit in faciem suam, et ait : Dominus ipse est Deus, Dominus ipse est Deus.
  40. Dixitque Elias ad eos : Apprehendite prophetas Baal, et ne unus quidem effugiat ex eis. Quos cum apprehendissent, duxit eos Elias ad torrentem Cison, et interfecit eos ibi.
  41. Et ait Elias ad Achab : Ascende, comede, et bibe : quia sonus multæ pluviæ est.
  42. Ascendit Achab ut comederet et biberet : Elias autem ascendit in verticem Carmeli, et pronus in terram posuit faciem suam inter genua sua,
  43. et dixit ad puerum suum : Ascende, et prospice contra mare. Qui cum ascendisset, et contemplatus esset, ait : Non est quidquam. Et rursum ait illi : Revertere septem vicibus.
  44. In septima autem vice, ecce nubecula parva quasi vestigium hominis ascendebat de mari. Qui ait : Ascende, et dic Achab : Junge currum tuum et descende, ne occupet te pluvia.
  45. Cumque se verteret huc itaque illuc, ecce cæli contenebrati sunt, et nubes, et ventus, et facta est pluvia grandis. Ascendens itaque Achab abiit in Jezrahel :
  46. et manus Domini facta est super Eliam, accinctisque lumbis currebat ante Achab, donec veniret in Jezrahel.
1 Kings 18 Text (KJV)
  1. And it came to pass after many days, that the word of the LORD came to Elijah in the third year, saying, Go, shew thyself unto Ahab; and I will send rain upon the earth.
  2. And Elijah went to shew himself unto Ahab. And there was a sore famine in Samaria.
  3. And Ahab called Obadiah, which was the governor of his house. (Now Obadiah feared the LORD greatly:
  4. For it was so, when Jezebel cut off the prophets of the LORD, that Obadiah took an hundred prophets, and hid them by fifty in a cave, and fed them with bread and water.)
  5. And Ahab said unto Obadiah, Go into the land, unto all fountains of water, and unto all brooks: peradventure we may find grass to save the horses and mules alive, that we lose not all the beasts.
  6. So they divided the land between them to pass throughout it: Ahab went one way by himself, and Obadiah went another way by himself.
  7. And as Obadiah was in the way, behold, Elijah met him: and he knew him, and fell on his face, and said, Art thou that my lord Elijah?
  8. And he answered him, I am: go, tell thy lord, Behold, Elijah is here.
  9. And he said, What have I sinned, that thou wouldest deliver thy servant into the hand of Ahab, to slay me?
  10. As the LORD thy God liveth, there is no nation or kingdom, whither my lord hath not sent to seek thee: and when they said, He is not there; he took an oath of the kingdom and nation, that they found thee not.
  11. And now thou sayest, Go, tell thy lord, Behold, Elijah is here.
  12. And it shall come to pass, as soon as I am gone from thee, that the Spirit of the LORD shall carry thee whither I know not; and so when I come and tell Ahab, and he cannot find thee, he shall slay me: but I thy servant fear the LORD from my youth.
  13. Was it not told my lord what I did when Jezebel slew the prophets of the LORD, how I hid an hundred men of the LORD's prophets by fifty in a cave, and fed them with bread and water?
  14. And now thou sayest, Go, tell thy lord, Behold, Elijah is here: and he shall slay me.
  15. And Elijah said, As the LORD of hosts liveth, before whom I stand, I will surely shew myself unto him to day.
  16. So Obadiah went to meet Ahab, and told him: and Ahab went to meet Elijah.
  17. And it came to pass, when Ahab saw Elijah, that Ahab said unto him, Art thou he that troubleth Israel?
  18. And he answered, I have not troubled Israel; but thou, and thy father's house, in that ye have forsaken the commandments of the LORD, and thou hast followed Baalim.
  19. Now therefore send, and gather to me all Israel unto mount Carmel, and the prophets of Baal four hundred and fifty, and the prophets of the groves four hundred, which eat at Jezebel's table.
  20. So Ahab sent unto all the children of Israel, and gathered the prophets together unto mount Carmel.
  21. And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions? if the LORD be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him. And the people answered him not a word.
  22. Then said Elijah unto the people, I, even I only, remain a prophet of the LORD; but Baal's prophets are four hundred and fifty men.
  23. Let them therefore give us two bullocks; and let them choose one bullock for themselves, and cut it in pieces, and lay it on wood, and put no fire under: and I will dress the other bullock, and lay it on wood, and put no fire under:
  24. And call ye on the name of your gods, and I will call on the name of the LORD: and the God that answereth by fire, let him be God. And all the people answered and said, It is well spoken.
  25. And Elijah said unto the prophets of Baal, Choose you one bullock for yourselves, and dress it first; for ye are many; and call on the name of your gods, but put no fire under.
  26. And they took the bullock which was given them, and they dressed it, and called on the name of Baal from morning even until noon, saying, O Baal, hear us. But there was no voice, nor any that answered. And they leaped upon the altar which was made.
  27. And it came to pass at noon, that Elijah mocked them, and said, Cry aloud: for he is a god; either he is talking, or he is pursuing, or he is in a journey, or peradventure he sleepeth, and must be awaked.
  28. And they cried aloud, and cut themselves after their manner with knives and lancets, till the blood gushed out upon them.
  29. And it came to pass, when midday was past, and they prophesied until the time of the offering of the evening sacrifice, that there was neither voice, nor any to answer, nor any that regarded.
  30. And Elijah said unto all the people, Come near unto me. And all the people came near unto him. And he repaired the altar of the LORD that was broken down.
  31. And Elijah took twelve stones, according to the number of the tribes of the sons of Jacob, unto whom the word of the LORD came, saying, Israel shall be thy name:
  32. And with the stones he built an altar in the name of the LORD: and he made a trench about the altar, as great as would contain two measures of seed.
  33. And he put the wood in order, and cut the bullock in pieces, and laid him on the wood, and said, Fill four barrels with water, and pour it on the burnt sacrifice, and on the wood.
  34. And he said, Do it the second time. And they did it the second time. And he said, Do it the third time. And they did it the third time.
  35. And the water ran round about the altar; and he filled the trench also with water.
  36. And it came to pass at the time of the offering of the evening sacrifice, that Elijah the prophet came near, and said, LORD God of Abraham, Isaac, and of Israel, let it be known this day that thou art God in Israel, and that I am thy servant, and that I have done all these things at thy word.
  37. Hear me, O LORD, hear me, that this people may know that thou art the LORD God, and that thou hast turned their heart back again.
  38. Then the fire of the LORD fell, and consumed the burnt sacrifice, and the wood, and the stones, and the dust, and licked up the water that was in the trench.
  39. And when all the people saw it, they fell on their faces: and they said, The LORD, he is the God; the LORD, he is the God.
  40. And Elijah said unto them, Take the prophets of Baal; let not one of them escape. And they took them: and Elijah brought them down to the brook Kishon, and slew them there.
  41. And Elijah said unto Ahab, Get thee up, eat and drink; for there is a sound of abundance of rain.
  42. So Ahab went up to eat and to drink. And Elijah went up to the top of Carmel; and he cast himself down upon the earth, and put his face between his knees,
  43. And said to his servant, Go up now, look toward the sea. And he went up, and looked, and said, There is nothing. And he said, Go again seven times.
  44. And it came to pass at the seventh time, that he said, Behold, there ariseth a little cloud out of the sea, like a man's hand. And he said, Go up, say unto Ahab, Prepare thy chariot, and get thee down, that the rain stop thee not.
  45. And it came to pass in the mean while, that the heaven was black with clouds and wind, and there was a great rain. And Ahab rode, and went to Jezreel.
  46. And the hand of the LORD was on Elijah; and he girded up his loins, and ran before Ahab to the entrance of Jezreel.
