Book 11 Chapter 18

18:1
post dies multos verbum Domini factum est ad Heliam in annotertio dicens vade et ostende te Ahab ut dem pluviam superfaciem terrae

18:2
ivit ergo Helias ut ostenderet se Ahab erat autem famesvehemens in Samaria

18:3
vocavitque Ahab Abdiam dispensatorem domus suae Abdiasautem timebat Dominum valde

18:4
nam cum interficeret Hiezabel prophetas Domini tulit illecentum prophetas et abscondit eos quinquagenos in speluncis etpavit eos pane et aqua

18:5
dixit ergo Ahab ad Abdiam vade in terram ad universosfontes aquarum et in cunctas valles si forte invenire possimusherbam et salvare equos et mulos et non penitus iumentaintereant

18:6
diviseruntque sibi regiones ut circuirent eas Ahab ibat perviam unam et Abdias per viam alteram seorsum

18:7
cumque esset Abdias in via Helias occurrit ei qui cumcognovisset eum cecidit super faciem suam et ait num tu esdomine mi Helias

18:8
cui ille respondit ego vade dic domino tuo adest Helias

18:9
et ille quid peccavi inquit quoniam trades me servum tuumin manu Ahab ut interficiat me

18:10
vivit Dominus Deus tuus non est gens aut regnum quo nonmiserit dominus meus te requirens et respondentibus cunctis nonest hic adiuravit regna singula et gentes eo quod minimerepperireris

18:11
et nunc dicis mihi vade et dic domino tuo adest Helias

18:12
cumque recessero a te spiritus Domini asportabit te inlocum quem ego ignoro ingressus nuntiabo Ahab et non inveniette et interficiet me servus autem tuus timet Dominum abinfantia sua

18:13
numquid non indicatum est tibi domino meo quid fecerim cuminterficeret Hiezabel prophetas Domini quod absconderim deprophetis Domini centum viros quinquagenos et quinquagenos inspeluncis et paverim eos pane et aqua

18:14
et nunc tu dicis vade et dic domino tuo adest Helias utinterficiat me

18:15
dixit Helias vivit Dominus exercituum ante cuius vultumsto quia hodie apparebo ei

18:16
abiit ergo Abdias in occursum Ahab et indicavit eivenitque Ahab in occursum Heliae

18:17
et cum vidisset eum ait tune es ille qui conturbas Israhel

18:18
et ille ait non turbavi Israhel sed tu et domus patris tuiqui dereliquistis mandata Domini et secuti estis Baalim

18:19
verumtamen nunc mitte et congrega ad me universum Israhelin monte Carmeli et prophetas Baal quadringentos quinquagintaprophetasque lucorum quadringentos qui comedunt de mensaHiezabel

18:20
misit Ahab ad omnes filios Israhel et congregavitprophetas in monte Carmeli

18:21
accedens autem Helias ad omnem populum ait usquequoclaudicatis in duas partes si Dominus est Deus sequimini eum siautem Baal sequimini illum et non respondit ei populus verbum

18:22
et ait rursum Helias ad populum ego remansi prophetaDomini solus prophetae autem Baal quadringenti et quinquagintaviri sunt

18:23
dentur nobis duo boves et illi eligant bovem unum et infrusta caedentes ponant super ligna ignem autem non subponantet ego faciam bovem alterum et inponam super ligna ignemque nonsubponam

18:24
invocate nomina deorum vestrorum et ego invocabo nomenDomini et deus qui exaudierit per ignem ipse sit Deusrespondens omnis populus ait optima propositio

18:25
dixit ergo Helias prophetis Baal eligite vobis bovem unumet facite primi quia vos plures estis et invocate nomina deorumvestrorum ignemque non subponatis

18:26
qui cum tulissent bovem quem dederat eis fecerunt etinvocabant nomen Baal de mane usque ad meridiem dicentes Baalexaudi nos et non erat vox nec qui responderet transiliebantquealtare quod fecerant

18:27
cumque esset iam meridies inludebat eis Helias dicensclamate voce maiore deus enim est et forsitan loquitur aut indiversorio est aut in itinere aut certe dormit ut excitetur

18:28
clamabant ergo voce magna et incidebant se iuxta ritumsuum cultris et lanceolis donec perfunderentur sanguine

18:29
postquam autem transiit meridies et illis prophetantibusvenerat tempus quo sacrificium offerri solet nec audiebatur voxneque aliquis respondebat nec adtendebat orantes

18:30
dixit Helias omni populo venite ad me et accedente ad sepopulo curavit altare Domini quod destructum fuerat

18:31
et tulit duodecim lapides iuxta numerum tribuum filiorumIacob ad quem factus est sermo Domini dicens Israhel erit nomentuum

18:32
et aedificavit lapidibus altare in nomine Domini fecitqueaquaeductum quasi per duas aratiunculas in circuitu altaris

18:33
et conposuit ligna divisitque per membra bovem et posuitsuper ligna

18:34
et ait implete quattuor hydrias aqua et fundite superholocaustum et super ligna rursumque dixit etiam secundo hocfacite qui cum fecissent et secundo ait etiam tertio id ipsumfacite feceruntque et tertio

18:35
et currebant aquae circa altare et fossa aquaeductusrepleta est

18:36
cumque iam tempus esset ut offerretur holocaustum accedensHelias propheta ait Domine Deus Abraham Isaac et Israhel hodieostende quia tu es Deus Israhel et ego servus tuus et iuxtapraeceptum tuum feci omnia verba haec

18:37
exaudi me Domine exaudi me ut discat populus iste quia tues Dominus Deus et tu convertisti cor eorum iterum

18:38
cecidit autem ignis Domini et voravit holocaustum et lignaet lapides pulverem quoque et aquam quae erat in aquaeductulambens

18:39
quod cum vidisset omnis populus cecidit in faciem suam etait Dominus ipse est Deus Dominus ipse est Deus

18:40
dixitque Helias ad eos adprehendite prophetas Baal et neunus quidem fugiat ex eis quos cum conprehendissent duxit eosHelias ad torrentem Cison et interfecit eos ibi

18:41
et ait Helias ad Ahab ascende comede et bibe quia sonusmultae pluviae est

18:42
ascendit Ahab ut comederet et biberet Helias autemascendit in vertice Carmeli et pronus in terram posuit facieminter genua sua

18:43
et dixit ad puerum suum ascende et prospice contra marequi cum ascendisset et contemplatus esset ait non est quicquamet rursum ait illi revertere septem vicibus

18:44
in septima autem vice ecce nubicula parva quasi vestigiumhominis ascendebat de mari qui ait ascende et dic Ahab iunge etdescende ne occupet te pluvia

18:45
cumque se verterent huc atque illuc ecce caelicontenebrati sunt et nubes et ventus et facta est pluviagrandis ascendens itaque Ahab abiit in Hiezrahel

18:46
et manus Domini facta est super Heliam accinctisque lumbiscurrebat ante Ahab donec veniret in Hiezrahel

018:001
And it came to pass after many days, that the word of the LORD came to Elijah in the third year, saying, Go, show thyself unto Ahab; and I will send rain upon the earth.

018:002
And Elijah went to show himself unto Ahab. And there was a sore famine in Samaria.

018:003
And Ahab called Obadiah, which was the governor of his house. (Now Obadiah feared the LORD greatly:

018:004
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.)

018:005
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.

018:006
So they divided the land between them to pass throughout it: Ahab went one way by himself, and Obadiah went another way by himself.

018:007
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?

018:008
And he answered him, I am: go, tell thy lord, Behold, Elijah is here.

018:009
And he said, What have I sinned, that thou wouldest deliver thy servant into the hand of Ahab, to slay me?

018:010
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.

018:011
And now thou sayest, Go, tell thy lord, Behold, Elijah is here.

018:012
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.

018:013
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?

018:014
And now thou sayest, Go, tell thy lord, Behold, Elijah is here: and he shall slay me.

018:015
And Elijah said, As the LORD of hosts liveth, before whom I stand, I will surely show myself unto him to day.

018:016
So Obadiah went to meet Ahab, and told him: and Ahab went to meet Elijah.

018:017
And it came to pass, when Ahab saw Elijah, that Ahab said unto him, Art thou he that troubleth Israel?

018:018
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.

018:019
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.

018:020
So Ahab sent unto all the children of Israel, and gathered the prophets together unto mount Carmel.

018:021
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.

018:022
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.

018:023
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:

018:024
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.

018:025
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.

018:026
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.

018:027
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.

018:028
And they cried aloud, and cut themselves after their manner with knives and lancets, till the blood gushed out upon them.

018:029
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.

018:030
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.

018:031
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:

018:032
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.

018:033
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.

018:034
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.

018:035
And the water ran round about the altar; and he filled the trench also with water.

018:036
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.

018:037
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.

018:038
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.

018:039
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.

018:040
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.

018:041
And Elijah said unto Ahab, Get thee up, eat and drink; for there is a sound of abundance of rain.

018:042
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,

018:043
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.

018:044
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.

018:045
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.

018:046
And the hand of the LORD was on Elijah; and he girded up his loins, and ran before Ahab to the entrance of Jezreel.
