1 Now the word of the LORD came to Jehu R635 the son of Hanani R636 against Baasha, saying, 2 "Inasmuch as I exalted R637 you from the dust and made you leader over My people Israel, and you R638 have walked in the way of Jeroboam and have made My people Israel sin, provoking Me to anger with their sins, 3 behold, I R639 will consume Baasha R640 and his house, and I R641 will make your house like the house of Jeroboam the son of Nebat. 4 "Anyone R642 of Baasha who dies in the city the dogs will eat, and anyone of his who dies in the field the birds of the heavens will eat." 5 Now R643 the rest of the acts of Baasha and what he did and his might, are they not written in the Book of the Chronicles of the Kings of Israel? 6 And Baasha slept with his fathers and was buried in Tirzah, R644 and Elah his son became king in his place. 7 Moreover, the word of the LORD through the R645 prophet Jehu the son of Hanani also came against Baasha and his household, both because of all the evil which he did in the sight of the LORD, provoking Him to anger with the R646 work of his hands, in being like the house of Jeroboam, and because he R647 struck it. F404 8 In the twenty-sixth year of Asa king of Judah, Elah the son of Baasha became king over Israel at Tirzah, and reigned two years. 9 His servant Zimri, R648 commander of half his chariots, conspired against him. Now he was at Tirzah drinking himself drunk in the house of Arza, who R649 was over the household at Tirzah. 10 Then Zimri went in and struck him and put him to death in the twenty-seventh year of Asa king of Judah, and became king in his place. 11 It came about when he became king, as soon as he sat on his throne, that he R650 killed F405 all the household of Baasha; he did not leave a F406 single male, neither of his relatives F407 nor of his friends. 12 Thus Zimri destroyed all the household of Baasha, according R651 to the word of the LORD, which He spoke against Baasha through Jehu R652 the prophet, 13 for all the sins of Baasha and the sins of Elah his son, which they sinned and which they made Israel sin, provoking R653 the LORD God of Israel to anger with their idols. F408 14 Now R654 the rest of the acts of Elah and all that he did, are they not written in the Book of the Chronicles of the Kings of Israel?

15 In the twenty-seventh year of Asa king of Judah, Zimri reigned seven days at Tirzah. Now the people were camped against Gibbethon, R655 which belonged to the Philistines. 16 The people who were camped heard it F409 said, "Zimri has conspired and has also struck down the king." Therefore all Israel made Omri, the commander of the army, king over Israel that day in the camp. 17 Then Omri and all Israel with him went up from Gibbethon and besieged Tirzah. 18 When Zimri saw that the city was taken, he went into the citadel of the king's house and burned the king's house over him with fire, and died, R656 19 because of his sins which he sinned, doing evil in the sight of the LORD, walking R657 in the way of Jeroboam, and in his sin which he did, making Israel sin. 20 Now R658 the rest of the acts of Zimri and his conspiracy which he carried F410 out, are they not written in the Book of the Chronicles of the Kings of Israel? 21 Then the people of Israel were divided into two parts: half of the people followed Tibni the son of Ginath, to make him king; the other half followed Omri. 22 But the people who followed Omri prevailed over the people who followed Tibni the son of Ginath. And Tibni died and Omri became king. 23 In the thirty-first year of Asa king of Judah, Omri became king over Israel and reigned twelve years; he reigned six years at Tirzah. R659 24 He bought the hill Samaria F411 from Shemer for two talents of silver; and he built on the hill, and named the city which he built Samaria, R660 F411 after the name of Shemer, the owner of the hill. 25 Omri R661 did evil in the sight of the LORD, and acted R662 more wickedly than all who were before him. 26 For he walked R663 in all the way of Jeroboam the son of Nebat and in his sins which he made Israel sin, provoking the LORD God of Israel with their idols. F412 27 Now the rest of the acts of Omri which he did and his might which he showed, F413 are they not written in the Book of the Chronicles of the Kings of Israel? 28 So Omri slept with his fathers and was buried in Samaria; and Ahab his son became king in his place.

29 Now Ahab the son of Omri became king over Israel in the thirty-eighth year of Asa king of Judah, and Ahab the son of Omri reigned over Israel in Samaria twenty-two years. 30 Ahab the son of Omri did evil in the sight of the LORD more R664 than all who were before him. 31 It came about, as though it had been a trivial thing for him to walk in the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, that he R665 married Jezebel the daughter of Ethbaal king of the Sidonians, R666 and went to serve Baal and worshiped him. 32 So he erected an altar for Baal in the R667 house of Baal which he built in Samaria. 33 Ahab also made the R668 Asherah. F414 Thus Ahab R669 did more to provoke the LORD God of Israel than all the kings of Israel who were before him. 34 In R670 his days Hiel the Bethelite built Jericho; he laid its foundations with the loss of Abiram his firstborn, and set up its gates with the loss of his youngest son Segub, according to the word of the LORD, which He spoke by Joshua the son of Nun.

1 Now Elijah the Tishbite, who was of the R671 F415 settlers of Gilead, said to Ahab, "As R672 the LORD, the God of Israel lives, before whom I stand, surely there R673 shall be neither dew nor rain these years, except by my word." 2 The word of the LORD came to him, saying, 3 "Go away from here and turn eastward, and hide yourself by the brook Cherith, which is east F416 of the Jordan. 4 "It shall be that you will drink of the brook, and I R674 have commanded the ravens to provide for you there." 5 So he went and did according to the word of the LORD, for he went and lived by the brook Cherith, which is east F417 of the Jordan. 6 The ravens brought him bread and meat in the morning and bread and meat in the evening, and he would drink from the brook. 7 It happened after a while that the brook dried up, because there was no rain in the land.

8 Then the word of the LORD came to him, saying, 9 "Arise, go to Zarephath, R675 which belongs to Sidon, and stay there; behold, I R676 have commanded a widow there to provide for you." 10 So he arose and went to Zarephath, and when he came to the gate of the city, behold, a widow was there gathering sticks; and he R677 called to her and said, "Please get me a little water in a jar, F418 that I may drink." 11 As she was going to get it, he called to her and said, "Please bring me a piece of bread in your hand." 12 But she said, "As R678 the LORD your God lives, I R679 have no bread, F419 only a handful of flour in the bowl F420 and a little oil in the jar; and behold, I am gathering a F421 few sticks that I may go in and prepare for me and my son, that we may eat it and die." R680 13 Then Elijah said to her, "Do not fear; go, do as you have said, but make me a little bread cake from it F422 first and bring it out to me, and afterward you may make one for yourself and for your son. 14 "For thus says the LORD God of Israel, `The bowl F423 of flour shall not be exhausted, nor shall the jar of oil be F424 empty, until the day that the LORD sends rain on the face of the earth.' " 15 So she went and did according to the word of Elijah, and she and he and her household ate for many days. 16 The bowl F425 of flour was not exhausted nor did the jar of oil become F426 empty, according to the word of the LORD which He spoke through Elijah.

17 Now it came about after these things that the son of the woman, the mistress of the house, became sick; and his sickness was so severe that there was no breath left in him. 18 So she said to Elijah, "What R681 do I have to do with you, O man R682 of God? You F427 have come to me to bring my iniquity to remembrance and to put my son to death!" 19 He said to her, "Give me your son." Then he took him from her bosom and carried him up to the upper room where he was living, and laid him on his own bed. 20 He called to the LORD and said, "O LORD my God, have You also brought calamity to the widow with whom I am staying, F428 by causing her son to die?" 21 Then R683 he stretched himself upon the child three times, and called to the LORD and said, "O LORD my God, I pray You, let this child's life return to F429 him." 22 The LORD heard the voice of Elijah, and R684 the life of the child returned to F430 him and he revived. 23 Elijah took the child and brought him down from the upper room into the house and gave him to his mother; and Elijah said, "See, your son is alive." 24 Then the woman said to Elijah, "Now R685 I know that you are a man of God and that the word of the LORD in your mouth is truth."
