in Samaria, and was sick: and he sent messengers, and said unto them, Go, enquire
of Baalzebub the god of Ekron whether I shall recover of this disease.
1:3 But the angel of the LORD said to Elijah the Tishbite, Arise, go up to
meet the messengers of the king of Samaria, and say unto them, Is it not because
there is not a God in Israel, that all of you go to enquire of Baalzebub the
god of Ekron?
1:4 Now therefore thus says the LORD, You shall not come down from that bed
on which you are gone up, but shall surely die. And Elijah departed.

are all of you now turned back?
1:6 And they said unto him, There came a man up to meet us, and said unto
us, Go, return unto the king that sent you, and say unto him, Thus says the
LORD, Is it not because there is not a God in Israel, that you send to enquire
of Baalzebub the god of Ekron? therefore you shall not come down from that bed
on which you are gone up, but shall surely die.
1:7 And he said unto them, What manner of man was he which came up to meet

1:9 Then the king sent unto him a captain of fifty with his fifty. And he

him, You man of God, the king has said, Come down.

of God, then let fire come down from heaven, and consume you and your fifty.
And there came down fire from heaven, and consumed him and his fifty.
1:11 Again also he sent unto him another captain of fifty with his fifty.
And he answered and said unto him, O man of God, thus has the king said, Come
1:12 And Elijah answered and said unto them, If I be a man of God, let fire
come down from heaven, and consume you and your fifty. And the fire of God came
down from heaven, and consumed him and his fifty.
1:13 And he sent again a captain of the third fifty with his fifty. And the
third captain of fifty went up, and came and fell on his knees before Elijah,
and besought him, and said unto him, O man of God, I pray you, let my life,
and the life of these fifty your servants, be precious in your sight.
1:14 Behold, there came fire down from heaven, and burnt up the two captains
of the former fifties with their fifties: therefore let my life now be precious
in your sight.
1:15 And the angel of the LORD said unto Elijah, Go down with him: be not
afraid of him. And he arose, and went down with him unto the king.

messengers to enquire of Baalzebub the god of Ekron, is it not because there
is no God in Israel to enquire of his word? therefore you shall not come down
off that bed on which you are gone up, but shall surely die.
