1 King 17:10-16

 


       So Elijah went to Zarephath, and as he came to the town gate, he saw a widow gathering firewood.  “Please bring me a drink of water,” he said to her.  And as she was going to get it, he called out, “And please bring me some bread, too.”

She answered, “By the living LORD your God I swear that I don’t have any bread.  All I have is a handful of flour in a bowl and a bit of live oil in a jar.  I came here to gather some firewood to take back home an d prepare what little I have for my son and me.  That will be our last meal, and then we will starve to death.”

“Don’t worry, “Elijah said to her.  “Go on and prepare your meal.  But first make a small loaf from what you have and bring it to me, and then prepare the rest for you and your son.  For this is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says; ‘The bowl will not run out of flour or the jar run out of oil before the day that I, the LORD, send rain.’”

The widow went and did as Elijah had told her, and all of them had enough food for many days.  As the LORD had promised through Elijah, the bowl did not run out of flour nor did the jar run out of oil.
