1:1

Ochozias judged by God


1:1 And Moab rebelled against Israel after the death of Achaab.

1:2 Ochozias fell through the lattice that was in his upper chamber in Samaria and was sick; and he sent messengers, and said to them, "Go and enquire of Baal fly, the god of Accaron, whether I shall recover of this my sickness."' And they went to enquire of him.

1:3 And an angel of the Lord called Elias the Thesbite, saying, "Arise, and go to meet the messengers of Ochozias King of Samaria, and thou shalt say to them, 'Is it because there is no God in Israel, that ye go to enquire of Baal fly, the God of Accaron?' but it shall not be so.

1:4 For thus saith the Lord, 'The bed on which thou art gone up, thou shalt not come down from it, for thou shalt surely die.' " And Elias went, and said so to them.

1:5 And the messenger returned to him, and he said to them, "Why have ye returned?"

1:6 And they said to him, "A man came up to meet us, and said to us, 'Go, return to the King that sent you, and say to him, Thus saith the Lord, Is it because there is no God in Israel, that thou goest to enquire of Baal fly, the God of Accaron? It shall not be so: the bed on which thou art gone up, thou shalt not come down from it, for thou shalt surely die.' "

1:7 So they returned and reported to the King as Elias said: and he said to them, "What was the manner of the man who went up to mid you, and spoke to you these words?"

1:8 And they said to him, "He was a hairy man, and girt with a leathern girdle about his loins." And he said, "This is Elias the Thesbite."

1:9 And he sent to him a captain of fifty and his fifty; and he went up to him: and, behold, Elias sat on the top of a mountain. And the captain of fifty spoke to him, and said, "O man of God, the King hath called thee, 'Come down.' "

1:10 And Elias answered and said to the captain of fifty, "And if I am a man of God, fire shall come down out of Heaven, and devour thee and thy fifty." And fire came down out of Heaven, and devoured him and his fifty.

1:11 And the King sent a second time to him another captain of fifty, and his fifty. And the captain of fifty spoke to him, and said, "O man of God, thus says the King, 'Come down quickly.'"

1:12 And Elias answered and spoke to him, and said, "If I am a man of God, fire shall come down out of Heaven, and devour thee and thy fifty." And fire came down out of Heaven, and devoured him and his fifty.

1:13 And the King sent yet again a captain and his fifty. And the third captain of fifty came, and knelt on his knees before Elias, and entreated him, and spoke to him and said, "O man of God, let my life, and the life of these fifty thy slaves, be precious in thine eyes.

1:14 Behold, fire came down from Heaven, and devoured the two first captains of fifty: and now, I pray, let my life be precious in thine eyes."

1:15 And the angel of the Lord spoke to Elias, and said, "Go down with him, be not afraid of them." And Elias rose up, and went down with him to the King.

1:16 And Elias spoke to him, and said, "Thus saith the Lord, 'Why hast thou sent messengers to enquire of Baal fly, the god of Accaron? It shall not be so: the bed on which thou art gone up, thou shalt not come down from it, for thou shalt surely die.'"

1:17 So he died according to the word of the Lord which Elias hath spoken.
