6 He looked, and behold, at his head was bread baked under ashes, and a container of water. Then he ate and drank, and again he slept deeply.
7 And the Angel of the Lord returned a second time, and touched him, and said to him: 'Rise up, eat. For a great journey again stands before you.'
8 And he when he had risen up, he ate and drank. And he walked by the strength of that food for forty days and forty nights, as far as the mountain of God, Horeb.
9 And when he had arrived there, he stayed in a cave. And behold, the word of the Lord came to him, and said to him, 'What are you doing here, Elijah?'
10 And he responded: 'I have been very zealous on behalf of the Lord, the God of hosts. For the sons of Israel have forsaken your covenant. They have torn down your altars. They have killed your prophets with the sword. I alone remain. And they are seeking my life, so that they may take it away.'
