|And Elias the Thesbite, of the inhabitants of Galaad, said to Achab: As the Lord liveth, the God of Israel, in whose sight I stand, there shall not be dew nor rain these years, but according to the words of my mouth.
|et dixit Helias Thesbites de habitatoribus Galaad ad Ahab vivit Dominus Deus Israhel in cuius conspectu sto si erit annis his ros et pluvia nisi iuxta oris mei verba
|And the word of the Lord came to him, saying:
|et factum est verbum Domini ad eum dicens
|Get thee hence, and go towards the east, and hide thyself by the torrent of Carith, which is over against the Jordan;
|recede hinc et vade contra orientem et abscondere in torrente Charith qui est contra Iordanem
|And there thou shalt drink of the torrent: and I have commanded the ravens to feed thee there.
|et ibi de torrente bibes corvisque praecepi ut pascant te ibi
|So he went, and did according to the word of the Lord: and going, he dwelt by the torrent Carith, which is over against the Jordan.
|abiit ergo et fecit iuxta verbum Domini cumque abisset sedit in torrente Charith qui est contra Iordanem
|And the ravens brought him bread and flesh in the morning, and bread and flesh in the evening; and he drank of the torrent.
|corvi quoque deferebant panem et carnes mane similiter panem et carnes vesperi et bibebat de torrente
|But after some time the torrent was dried up: for it had not rained upon the earth.
|post dies autem siccatus est torrens non enim pluerat super terram
|Then the word of the Lord came to him, saying:
|factus est igitur sermo Domini ad eum dicens
|Arise, and go to Sarephta of the Sidonians, and dwell there: for I have commanded a widow woman there to feed thee.
|surge et vade in Sareptha Sidoniorum et manebis ibi praecepi enim ibi mulieri viduae ut pascat te
|He arose, and went to Sarephta. And when he was come to the gate of the city, he saw the widow woman gathering sticks, and he called her, and said to her: Give me a little water in a vessel, that I may drink.
|surrexit et abiit Sareptham cumque venisset ad portam civitatis apparuit ei mulier vidua colligens ligna et vocavit eam dixitque da mihi paululum aquae in vase ut bibam
|And when she was going to fetch it, he called after her, saying: Bring me also, I beseech thee, a morsel of bread in thy hand.
|cumque illa pergeret ut adferret clamavit post tergum eius dicens adfer mihi obsecro et buccellam panis in manu tua
|And she answered: As the Lord thy God liveth, I have no bread, but only a handful of meal in a pot, and a little oil in a cruise: behold I am gathering two sticks, that I may go in and dress it, for me and my son, that we may eat it and die.
|quae respondit vivit Dominus Deus tuus quia non habeo panem nisi quantum pugillus capere potest farinae in hydria et paululum olei in lecytho en colligo duo ligna ut ingrediar et faciam illud mihi et filio meo ut comedamus et moriamur
|And Elias said to her: Fear not; but go, and do as thou hast said but first make for me of the same meal a little hearth cake, and bring it to me, and after make for thyself and thy son.
|ad quam Helias ait noli timere sed vade et fac sicut dixisti verumtamen mihi primum fac de ipsa farinula subcinericium panem parvulum et adfer ad me tibi autem et filio tuo facies postea
|For thus saith the Lord, the God of Israel: The pot of meal shall not waste, nor the cruise of oil be diminished, until the day wherein the Lord will give rain upon the face of the earth.
|haec autem dicit Dominus Deus Israhel hydria farinae non deficiet nec lecythus olei minuetur usque ad diem in qua daturus est Dominus pluviam super faciem terrae
|She went, and did according to the word of Elias: and he ate, and she, and her house: and from that day
|quae abiit et fecit iuxta verbum Heliae et comedit ipse et illa et domus eius et ex illa die
|The pot of meal wasted not, and the cruise of oil was not diminished according to the word of the Lord, which he spoke in the hand of Elias.
|hydria farinae non defecit et lecythus olei non est inminutus iuxta verbum Domini quod locutus fuerat in manu Heliae
|And it came to pass after this, that the son of the woman, the mistress of the house, fell sick, and the sickness was very grievous, so that there was no breath left in him.
|factum est autem post verba haec aegrotavit filius mulieris matris familiae et erat languor fortis nimis ita ut non remaneret in eo halitus
|And she said to Elias: What have I to do with thee, thou man of God? art thou come to me, that my iniquities should be remembered, and that thou shouldst kill my son?
|dixit ergo ad Heliam quid mihi et tibi vir Dei ingressus es ad me ut rememorarentur iniquitates meae et interficeres filium meum
|And Elias said to her: Give me thy son. And he took him out of her bosom, and carried him into the upper chamber where he abode, and laid him upon his own bed.
|et ait ad eam da mihi filium tuum tulitque eum de sinu illius et portavit in cenaculum ubi ipse manebat et posuit super lectulum suum
|And he cried to the Lord, and said: O Lord, my God, hast thou afflicted also the widow, with whom I am after a sort maintained, so as to kill her son?
|et clamavit ad Dominum et dixit Domine Deus meus etiamne viduam apud quam ego utcumque sustentor adflixisti ut interficeres filium eius
|And he stretched, and measured himself upon the child three times, and cried to the Lord, and said: O Lord, my God, let the soul of this child, I beseech thee, return into his body.
|et expandit se atque mensus est super puerum tribus vicibus clamavitque ad Dominum et ait Domine Deus meus revertatur oro anima pueri huius in viscera eius
|And the Lord heard the voice of Elias: and the soul of the child returned into him, and he revived.
|exaudivit Dominus vocem Heliae et reversa est anima pueri intra eum et revixit
|And Elias took the child, and brought him down from the upper chamber to the house below, and delivered him to his mother, and said to her: Behold thy son liveth.
|tulitque Helias puerum et deposuit eum de cenaculo in inferiorem domum et tradidit matri suae et ait illi en vivit filius tuus
|And the woman said to Elias: Now by this I know that thou art a man of God, and the word of the Lord in thy mouth is true.
|dixitque mulier ad Heliam nunc in isto cognovi quoniam vir Dei es tu et verbum Domini in ore tuo verum est
