- 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.
