- 9 Then the king sent R9 to him a captain of fifty with his fifty. And he went up to him, and behold, he was sitting on the top of the hill. And he said to him, "O man of God, the king says, `Come down.' " 10 Elijah replied to the captain of fifty, "If I am a man of God, let R10 fire come down from heaven and consume you and your fifty." Then R11 fire came down from heaven and consumed him and his fifty. 11 So he again sent to him another captain of fifty with his fifty. And he said to him, "O man of God, thus says the king, `Come down quickly.' " 12 Elijah replied to them, "If I am a man of God, let fire come down from heaven and consume you and your fifty." Then the fire of God came down from heaven and consumed him and his fifty. 13 So he again R12 sent the captain of a third fifty with his fifty. When the third captain of fifty went up, he came and bowed down on his knees before Elijah, and begged him and said to him, "O man of God, please let my life and the lives of these fifty servants of yours be precious in your sight. 14 "Behold fire came down from heaven and consumed the first two captains of fifty with their fifties; but now let my life F6 be precious in your sight." 15 The R13 angel of the LORD said to Elijah, "Go down with him; do R14 not be afraid of him." So he arose and went down with him to the king. 16 Then he said to him, "Thus says the LORD, `Because you have sent messengers to R15 inquire of Baal-zebub, the god of Ekron--is it because there is no God in Israel to inquire of His word?--therefore you F7 shall not come down from the bed where you have gone up, but shall surely die.' " 17 So Ahaziah died according to the word of the LORD which Elijah had spoken. And because he had no son, Jehoram became king in his place in R16 the second year of Jehoram the son of Jehoshaphat, king of Judah. 18 Now the rest of the acts of Ahaziah which he did, are they not written in the Book of the Chronicles of the Kings of Israel?
