1 Kings 17:1-6 New International Version

Elijah Predicts Drought

17 1  Now Elijah the Tishbite, from Tishbe[1] in Gilead, said to Ahab, "As the Lord, the God of Israel, lives, whom I serve, there will be neither dew nor rain in the next few years except at my word." 2  Then the word of the Lord came to Elijah: 3  "Leave here, turn eastward and hide in the Kerith Ravine, east of the Jordan. 4  You will drink from the brook, and I have directed the ravens to supply you with food there." 5  So he did what the Lord had told him. He went to the Kerith Ravine, east of the Jordan, and stayed there. 6  The ravens brought him bread and meat in the morning and bread and meat in the evening, and he drank from the brook.
