1 Kings 19 (select verses)
Then Jezebel sent a messenger to Elijah, saying, “So may the gods do to me,
and more also, if I do not [take your life] by this time tomorrow.”
Then he was afraid; he got up and fled for his life,
and came to Beer-sheba … [he went] a day’s journey into the wilderness,
and came and sat down under a solitary broom tree.
He asked that he might die: “It is enough; now, O Lord, take away my life,
for I am no better than my ancestors.”
Then he lay down under the broom tree and fell asleep.
Then a great and powerful wind tore the mountains apart and
shattered the rocks before the Lord, but the Lord was not in the wind.
After the wind there was an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake. After the earthquake came a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire. And after the fire came a gentle whisper.
