Elias, fleeing from Jezabel, is fed by an angel in the desert; and by the strength of that food walketh forty days, till he cometh to Horeb, where he hath a vision of God.
 And Achab told Jezabel all that Elias had done, and how he had slain all the prophets with the sword.
Nuntiavit autem Achab Jezabel omnia quae fecerat Elias, et quomodo occidisset universos prophetas gladio.
 And Jezabel sent a messenger to Elias, saying: Such and such things may the gods do to me, and add still more, if by this hour tomorrow I make not thy life as the life of one of them.
Misitque Jezabel nuntium ad Eliam, dicens : Haec mihi faciant dii, et haec addant, nisi hac hora cras posuero animam tuam sicut animam unius ex illis.
 Then Elias was afraid, and rising up he went whithersoever he had a mind: and he came to Bersabee of Juda, and left his servant there,
Timuit ergo Elias, et surgens abiit quocumque eum ferebat voluntas : venitque in Bersabee Juda, et dimisit ibi puerum suum,
 And he went forward, one day's journey into the desert. And when he was there, and sat under a juniper tree, he requested for his soul that he might die, and said: It is enough for me, Lord, take away my soul: for I am no better than my fathers.
et perrexit in desertum, viam unius diei. Cumque venisset, et sederet subter unam juniperum, petivit animae suae ut moreretur, et ait : Sufficit mihi Domine, tolle animam meam : neque enim melior sum quam patres mei.
 And he cast himself down, and slept in the shadow of the juniper tree: and behold an angel of the Lord touched him, and said to him: Arise and eat.
Projecitque se, et obdormivit in umbra juniperi : et ecce angelus Domini tetigit eum, et dixit illi : Surge, et comede.
 He looked, and behold there was at his head a hearth cake, and a vessel of water: and he ate and drank, and he fell asleep again.
Respexit, et ecce ad caput suum subcinericius panis, et vas aquae : comedit ergo, et bibit, et rursum obdormivit.
 And the angel of the Lord came again the second time, and touched him, and said to him: Arise, eat: for thou hast yet a great way to go.
Reversusque est angelus Domini secundo, et tetigit eum, dixitque illi : Surge, comede : grandis enim tibi restat via.
 And he arose, and ate, and drank, and walked in the strength of that food forty days and forty nights, unto the mount of God, Horeb.
Qui cum surrexisset, comedit et bibit, et ambulavit in fortitudine cibi illius quadraginta diebus et quadraginta noctibus usque ad montem Dei Horeb.
 And when he was come thither, he abode in a cave: and behold the word of the Lord came unto him, and he said to him: What dost thou here, Elias?
Cumque venisset illuc, mansit in spelunca : et ecce sermo Domini ad eum, dixitque illi : Quid hic agis Elia?
 And he answered: With zeal have I been zealous for the Lord God of hosts: for the children of Israel have forsaken thy covenant: they have thrown down thy altars, they have slain thy prophets with the sword, and I alone am left, and they seek my life to take it away.
At ille respondit : Zelo zelatus sum pro Domino Deo exercituum, quia dereliquerunt pactum tuum filii Israel : altaria tua destruxerunt, prophetas tuos occiderunt gladio, derelictus sum ego solus, et quaerunt animam meam ut auferant eam.
 And he said to him: Go forth, and stand upon the mount before the Lord: and behold the Lord passeth, and a great and strong wind before the Lord over throwing the mountains, and breaking the rocks in pieces: the Lord is not in the wind, and after the wind an earthquake: the Lord is not in the earthquake.
Et ait ei : Egredere, et sta in monte coram Domino : et ecce Dominus transit, et spiritus grandis et fortis subvertens montes, et conterens petras ante Dominum : non in spiritu Dominus, et post spiritum commotio : non in commotione Dominus,
 And after the earthquake a fire: the Lord is not in the fire, and after the fire a whistling of a gentle air.
et post commotionem ignis : non in igne Dominus, et post ignem sibilus aurae tenuis.
 And when Elias heard it, he covered his face with his mantle, and coming forth stood in the entering in of the cave, and behold a voice unto him, saying: What dost thou here, Elias? And he answered:
Quod cum audisset Elias, operuit vultum suum pallio, et egressus stetit in ostio speluncae, et ecce vox ad eum dicens : Quid hic agis Elia? Et ille respondit :
 With zeal have I been zealous for the Lord God of hosts: because the children of Israel have forsaken thy covenant: they have destroyed thy altars, they have slain thy prophets with the sword, and I alone am left, and they seek my life to take it away.
Zelo zelatus sum pro Domino Deo exercituum : quia dereliquerunt pactum tuum filii Israel : altaria tua destruxerunt, prophetas tuos occiderunt gladio, derelictus sum ego solus, et quaerunt animam meam ut auferant eam.
 And the Lord said to him: Go, and return on thy way through the desert to Damascus: and when thou art come thither, thou shalt anoint Hazael to be king over Syria.
Et ait Dominus ad eum : Vade, et revertere in viam tuam per desertum in Damascum : cumque perveneris illuc, unges Hazael regem super Syriam,
 And thou shalt anoint Jehu the son of Namsi to be king over Israel: and Eliseus the son of Saphat, of Abelmeula, thou shalt anoint to be prophet in thy room.
et Jehu filium Namsi unges regem super Israel : Eliseum autem filium Saphat, qui est de Abelmeula, unges prophetam pro te.
 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall escape the sword of Hazael, shall be slain by Jehu: and whosoever shall escape the sword of Jehu, shall be slain by Eliseus.
Et erit, quicumque fugerit gladium Hazael, occidet eum Jehu : et quicumque fugerit gladium Jehu, interficiet eum Eliseus.
 And I will leave me seven thousand men in Israel, whose knees have not been bowed before Baal, and every mouth that hath not worshipped him kissing the hands.
Et derelinquam mihi in Israel septem millia virorum, quorum genua non sunt incurvata ante Baal, et omne os, quod non adoravit eum osculans manus.
 And Elias departing from thence, found Eliseus the son of Saphat, ploughing with twelve yoke of oxen: and he was one of them that were ploughing with twelve yoke of oxen: and when Elias came up to him, he cast his mantle upon him.
Profectus ergo inde Elias, reperit Eliseum filium Saphat, arantem in duodecim jugis boum. Et ipse in duodecim jugis boum arantibus unus erat : cumque venisset Elias ad eum, misit pallium suum super illum.
 And he forthwith left the oxen and ran after Elias, and said: Let me, I pray thee, kiss my father and my mother, and then I will follow thee. And he said to him: Go, and return back: for that which was my part, I have done to thee.
Qui statim relictis bobus cucurrit post Eliam, et ait : Osculer, oro, patrem meum, et matrem meam, et sic sequar te. Dixitque ei : Vade, et revertere : quod enim meum erat feci tibi.
 And returning back from him, he took a yoke of oxen, and killed them, and boiled the flesh with the plough of the oxen, and gave to the people, and they ate: and rising up he went away, and followed Elias, and ministered to him.
Reversus autem ab eo, tulit par boum, et mactavit illud, et in aratro boum coxit carnes, et dedit populo, et comederunt : consurgensque abiit, et secutus est Eliam, et ministrabat ei.
