1 Then Ahab reported to Jezebel all that Elijah had done, and how he had killed all the prophets with the sword.
2 And so Jezebel sent a messenger to Elijah, saying, 'May the gods do these things, and may they add these other things, if by this hour tomorrow I will not have made your life like the life of one of them.'
3 Therefore, Elijah was afraid. And rising up, he went away to wherever his will would carry him. And he arrived in Beersheba of Judah. And he dismissed his servant there.
4 And he continued on, into the desert, for one day's journey. And when he had arrived, and was sitting under a juniper tree, he requested for his soul that he might die. And he said: 'It is enough for me, O Lord. Take my soul. For I am no better than my fathers.'
5 And he stretched himself out, and he slept deeply in the shadow of the juniper tree. And behold, an Angel of the Lord touched him, and said to him, 'Rise up and eat.'
