I Kings 18

And it came to pass after many days, that the word of the LORD came to Elijah in the third year, saying, Go, shew thyself unto Ahab; and I will send rain upon the earth.
post dies multos verbum Domini factum est ad Heliam in anno tertio dicens vade et ostende te Ahab ut dem pluviam super faciem terrae
And Elijah went to shew himself unto Ahab. And there was a sore famine in Samaria.
ivit ergo Helias ut ostenderet se Ahab erat autem fames vehemens in Samaria
And Ahab called Obadiah, which was the governor of his house. (Now Obadiah feared the LORD greatly:
vocavitque Ahab Abdiam dispensatorem domus suae Abdias autem timebat Dominum valde
For it was so, when Jezebel cut off the prophets of the LORD, that Obadiah took an hundred prophets, and hid them by fifty in a cave, and fed them with bread and water.)
nam cum interficeret Hiezabel prophetas Domini tulit ille centum prophetas et abscondit eos quinquagenos in speluncis et pavit eos pane et aqua
And Ahab said unto Obadiah, Go into the land, unto all fountains of water, and unto all brooks: peradventure we may find grass to save the horses and mules alive, that we lose not all the beasts.
dixit ergo Ahab ad Abdiam vade in terram ad universos fontes aquarum et in cunctas valles si forte invenire possimus herbam et salvare equos et mulos et non penitus iumenta intereant
So they divided the land between them to pass throughout it: Ahab went one way by himself, and Obadiah went another way by himself.
diviseruntque sibi regiones ut circuirent eas Ahab ibat per viam unam et Abdias per viam alteram seorsum
And as Obadiah was in the way, behold, Elijah met him: and he knew him, and fell on his face, and said, Art thou that my lord Elijah?
cumque esset Abdias in via Helias occurrit ei qui cum cognovisset eum cecidit super faciem suam et ait num tu es domine mi Helias
And he answered him, I am: go, tell thy lord, Behold, Elijah is here.
cui ille respondit ego vade dic domino tuo adest Helias
And he said, What have I sinned, that thou wouldest deliver thy servant into the hand of Ahab, to slay me?
et ille quid peccavi inquit quoniam trades me servum tuum in manu Ahab ut interficiat me
As the LORD thy God liveth, there is no nation or kingdom, whither my lord hath not sent to seek thee: and when they said, He is not there; he took an oath of the kingdom and nation, that they found thee not.
vivit Dominus Deus tuus non est gens aut regnum quo non miserit dominus meus te requirens et respondentibus cunctis non est hic adiuravit regna singula et gentes eo quod minime repperireris
And now thou sayest, Go, tell thy lord, Behold, Elijah is here.
et nunc dicis mihi vade et dic domino tuo adest Helias
And it shall come to pass, as soon as I am gone from thee, that the Spirit of the LORD shall carry thee whither I know not; and so when I come and tell Ahab, and he cannot find thee, he shall slay me: but I thy servant fear the LORD from my youth.
cumque recessero a te spiritus Domini asportabit te in locum quem ego ignoro ingressus nuntiabo Ahab et non inveniet te et interficiet me servus autem tuus timet Dominum ab infantia sua
Was it not told my lord what I did when Jezebel slew the prophets of the LORD, how I hid an hundred men of the LORD'S prophets by fifty in a cave, and fed them with bread and water?
numquid non indicatum est tibi domino meo quid fecerim cum interficeret Hiezabel prophetas Domini quod absconderim de prophetis Domini centum viros quinquagenos et quinquagenos in speluncis et paverim eos pane et aqua
And now thou sayest, Go, tell thy lord, Behold, Elijah is here: and he shall slay me.
et nunc tu dicis vade et dic domino tuo adest Helias ut interficiat me
And Elijah said, As the LORD of hosts liveth, before whom I stand, I will surely shew myself unto him to day.
dixit Helias vivit Dominus exercituum ante cuius vultum sto quia hodie apparebo ei
So Obadiah went to meet Ahab, and told him: and Ahab went to meet Elijah.
abiit ergo Abdias in occursum Ahab et indicavit ei venitque Ahab in occursum Heliae
And it came to pass, when Ahab saw Elijah, that Ahab said unto him, Art thou he that troubleth Israel?
et cum vidisset eum ait tune es ille qui conturbas Israhel
And he answered, I have not troubled Israel; but thou, and thy father's house, in that ye have forsaken the commandments of the LORD, and thou hast followed Baalim.
et ille ait non turbavi Israhel sed tu et domus patris tui qui dereliquistis mandata Domini et secuti estis Baalim
Now therefore send, and gather to me all Israel unto mount Carmel, and the prophets of Baal four hundred and fifty, and the prophets of the groves four hundred, which eat at Jezebel's table.
verumtamen nunc mitte et congrega ad me universum Israhel in monte Carmeli et prophetas Baal quadringentos quinquaginta prophetasque lucorum quadringentos qui comedunt de mensa Hiezabel
So Ahab sent unto all the children of Israel, and gathered the prophets together unto mount Carmel.
misit Ahab ad omnes filios Israhel et congregavit prophetas in monte Carmeli
And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions? if the LORD be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him. And the people answered him not a word.
accedens autem Helias ad omnem populum ait usquequo claudicatis in duas partes si Dominus est Deus sequimini eum si autem Baal sequimini illum et non respondit ei populus verbum
Then said Elijah unto the people, I, even I only, remain a prophet of the LORD; but Baal's prophets are four hundred and fifty men.
et ait rursum Helias ad populum ego remansi propheta Domini solus prophetae autem Baal quadringenti et quinquaginta viri sunt
Let them therefore give us two bullocks; and let them choose one bullock for themselves, and cut it in pieces, and lay it on wood, and put no fire under: and I will dress the other bullock, and lay it on wood, and put no fire under:
dentur nobis duo boves et illi eligant bovem unum et in frusta caedentes ponant super ligna ignem autem non subponant et ego faciam bovem alterum et inponam super ligna ignemque non subponam
And call ye on the name of your gods, and I will call on the name of the LORD: and the God that answereth by fire, let him be God. And all the people answered and said, It is well spoken.
invocate nomina deorum vestrorum et ego invocabo nomen Domini et deus qui exaudierit per ignem ipse sit Deus respondens omnis populus ait optima propositio
And Elijah said unto the prophets of Baal, Choose you one bullock for yourselves, and dress it first; for ye are many; and call on the name of your gods, but put no fire under.
dixit ergo Helias prophetis Baal eligite vobis bovem unum et facite primi quia vos plures estis et invocate nomina deorum vestrorum ignemque non subponatis
And they took the bullock which was given them, and they dressed it, and called on the name of Baal from morning even until noon, saying, O Baal, hear us. But there was no voice, nor any that answered. And they leaped upon the altar which was made.
qui cum tulissent bovem quem dederat eis fecerunt et invocabant nomen Baal de mane usque ad meridiem dicentes Baal exaudi nos et non erat vox nec qui responderet transiliebantque altare quod fecerant
And it came to pass at noon, that Elijah mocked them, and said, Cry aloud: for he is a god; either he is talking, or he is pursuing, or he is in a journey, or peradventure he sleepeth, and must be awaked.
cumque esset iam meridies inludebat eis Helias dicens clamate voce maiore deus enim est et forsitan loquitur aut in diversorio est aut in itinere aut certe dormit ut excitetur
And they cried aloud, and cut themselves after their manner with knives and lancets, till the blood gushed out upon them.
clamabant ergo voce magna et incidebant se iuxta ritum suum cultris et lanceolis donec perfunderentur sanguine
And it came to pass, when midday was past, and they prophesied until the time of the offering of the evening sacrifice, that there was neither voice, nor any to answer, nor any that regarded.
postquam autem transiit meridies et illis prophetantibus venerat tempus quo sacrificium offerri solet nec audiebatur vox neque aliquis respondebat nec adtendebat orantes
And Elijah said unto all the people, Come near unto me. And all the people came near unto him. And he repaired the altar of the LORD that was broken down.
dixit Helias omni populo venite ad me et accedente ad se populo curavit altare Domini quod destructum fuerat
And Elijah took twelve stones, according to the number of the tribes of the sons of Jacob, unto whom the word of the LORD came, saying, Israel shall be thy name:
et tulit duodecim lapides iuxta numerum tribuum filiorum Iacob ad quem factus est sermo Domini dicens Israhel erit nomen tuum
And with the stones he built an altar in the name of the LORD: and he made a trench about the altar, as great as would contain two measures of seed.
et aedificavit lapidibus altare in nomine Domini fecitque aquaeductum quasi per duas aratiunculas in circuitu altaris
And he put the wood in order, and cut the bullock in pieces, and laid him on the wood, and said, Fill four barrels with water, and pour it on the burnt sacrifice, and on the wood.
et conposuit ligna divisitque per membra bovem et posuit super ligna
And he said, Do it the second time. And they did it the second time. And he said, Do it the third time. And they did it the third time.
et ait implete quattuor hydrias aqua et fundite super holocaustum et super ligna rursumque dixit etiam secundo hoc facite qui cum fecissent et secundo ait etiam tertio id ipsum facite feceruntque et tertio
And the water ran round about the altar; and he filled the trench also with water.
et currebant aquae circa altare et fossa aquaeductus repleta est
And it came to pass at the time of the offering of the evening sacrifice, that Elijah the prophet came near, and said, LORD God of Abraham, Isaac, and of Israel, let it be known this day that thou art God in Israel, and that I am thy servant, and that I have done all these things at thy word.
cumque iam tempus esset ut offerretur holocaustum accedens Helias propheta ait Domine Deus Abraham Isaac et Israhel hodie ostende quia tu es Deus Israhel et ego servus tuus et iuxta praeceptum tuum feci omnia verba haec
Hear me, O LORD, hear me, that this people may know that thou art the LORD God, and that thou hast turned their heart back again.
exaudi me Domine exaudi me ut discat populus iste quia tu es Dominus Deus et tu convertisti cor eorum iterum
Then the fire of the LORD fell, and consumed the burnt sacrifice, and the wood, and the stones, and the dust, and licked up the water that was in the trench.
cecidit autem ignis Domini et voravit holocaustum et ligna et lapides pulverem quoque et aquam quae erat in aquaeductu lambens
And when all the people saw it, they fell on their faces: and they said, The LORD, he is the God; the LORD, he is the God.
quod cum vidisset omnis populus cecidit in faciem suam et ait Dominus ipse est Deus Dominus ipse est Deus
And Elijah said unto them, Take the prophets of Baal; let not one of them escape. And they took them: and Elijah brought them down to the brook Kishon, and slew them there.
dixitque Helias ad eos adprehendite prophetas Baal et ne unus quidem fugiat ex eis quos cum conprehendissent duxit eos Helias ad torrentem Cison et interfecit eos ibi
And Elijah said unto Ahab, Get thee up, eat and drink; for there is a sound of abundance of rain.
et ait Helias ad Ahab ascende comede et bibe quia sonus multae pluviae est
So Ahab went up to eat and to drink. And Elijah went up to the top of Carmel; and he cast himself down upon the earth, and put his face between his knees,
ascendit Ahab ut comederet et biberet Helias autem ascendit in vertice Carmeli et pronus in terram posuit faciem inter genua sua
And said to his servant, Go up now, look toward the sea. And he went up, and looked, and said, There is nothing. And he said, Go again seven times.
et dixit ad puerum suum ascende et prospice contra mare qui cum ascendisset et contemplatus esset ait non est quicquam et rursum ait illi revertere septem vicibus
And it came to pass at the seventh time, that he said, Behold, there ariseth a little cloud out of the sea, like a man's hand. And he said, Go up, say unto Ahab, Prepare thy chariot, and get thee down, that the rain stop thee not.
in septima autem vice ecce nubicula parva quasi vestigium hominis ascendebat de mari qui ait ascende et dic Ahab iunge et descende ne occupet te pluvia
And it came to pass in the mean while, that the heaven was black with clouds and wind, and there was a great rain. And Ahab rode, and went to Jezreel.
cumque se verterent huc atque illuc ecce caeli contenebrati sunt et nubes et ventus et facta est pluvia grandis ascendens itaque Ahab abiit in Hiezrahel
And the hand of the LORD was on Elijah; and he girded up his loins, and ran before Ahab to the entrance of Jezreel.
et manus Domini facta est super Heliam accinctisque lumbis currebat ante Ahab donec veniret in Hiezrahel
