The Holy Bible - The First Book of the Kings, Chapter 19 (Latin)
1And Ahab told Jezebel all that Elijah had done, and withal how he had slain all the prophets with the sword.
2Then Jezebel sent a messenger unto Elijah, saying, So let the gods do to me, and more also, if I make not thy life as the life of one of them by to morrow about this time.
3And when he saw that, he arose, and went for his life, and came to Beersheba, which belongeth to Judah, and left his servant there.
4But he himself went a day's journey into the wilderness, and came and sat down under a juniper tree: and he requested for himself that he might die; and said, It is enough; now, O LORD, take away my life; for I am not better than my fathers.
5And as he lay and slept under a juniper tree, behold, then an angel touched him, and said unto him, Arise and eat.
6And he looked, and, behold, there was a cake baken on the coals, and a cruse of water at his head. And he did eat and drink, and laid him down again.
7And the angel of the LORD came again the second time, and touched him, and said, Arise and eat; because the journey is too great for thee.
8And he arose, and did eat and drink, and went in the strength of that meat forty days and forty nights unto Horeb the mount of God.
9And he came thither unto a cave, and lodged there; and, behold, the word of the LORD came to him, and he said unto him, What doest thou here, Elijah?
10And he said, I have been very jealous for the LORD God of hosts: for the children of Israel have forsaken thy covenant, thrown down thine altars, and slain thy prophets with the sword; and I, even I only, am left; and they seek my life, to take it away.
11And he said, Go forth, and stand upon the mount before the LORD. And, behold, the LORD passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains, and brake in pieces the rocks before the LORD; but the LORD was not in the wind: and after the wind an earthquake; but the LORD was not in the earthquake:
12And after the earthquake a fire; but the LORD was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice.
13And it was so, when Elijah heard it, that he wrapped his face in his mantle, and went out, and stood in the entering in of the cave. And, behold, there came a voice unto him, and said, What doest thou here, Elijah?
14And he said, I have been very jealous for the LORD God of hosts: because the children of Israel have forsaken thy covenant, thrown down thine altars, and slain thy prophets with the sword; and I, even I only, am left; and they seek my life, to take it away.
15And the LORD said unto him, Go, return on thy way to the wilderness of Damascus: and when thou comest, anoint Hazael to be king over Syria:
16And Jehu the son of Nimshi shalt thou anoint to be king over Israel: and Elisha the son of Shaphat of Abelmeholah shalt thou anoint to be prophet in thy room.
17And it shall come to pass, that him that escapeth the sword of Hazael shall Jehu slay: and him that escapeth from the sword of Jehu shall Elisha slay.
18Yet I have left me seven thousand in Israel, all the knees which have not bowed unto Baal, and every mouth which hath not kissed him.
19So he departed thence, and found Elisha the son of Shaphat, who was plowing with twelve yoke of oxen before him, and he with the twelfth: and Elijah passed by him, and cast his mantle upon him.
20And he left the oxen, and ran after Elijah, and said, Let me, I pray thee, kiss my father and my mother, and then I will follow thee. And he said unto him, Go back again: for what have I done to thee?
21And he returned back from him, and took a yoke of oxen, and slew them, and boiled their flesh with the instruments of the oxen, and gave unto the people, and they did eat. Then he arose, and went after Elijah, and ministered unto him.
1nuntiavit autem Ahab Hiezabel omnia quae fecerat Helias et quomodo occidisset universos prophetas gladio
2misitque Hiezabel nuntium ad Heliam dicens haec mihi faciant dii et haec addant nisi hac hora cras posuero animam tuam sicut animam unius ex illis
3timuit ergo Helias et surgens abiit quocumque eum ferebat voluntas venitque in Bersabee Iuda et dimisit ibi puerum suum
4et perrexit in desertum via unius diei cumque venisset et sederet subter unam iuniperum petivit animae suae ut moreretur et ait sufficit mihi Domine tolle animam meam neque enim melior sum quam patres mei
5proiecitque se et obdormivit in umbra iuniperi et ecce angelus tetigit eum et dixit illi surge comede
6respexit et ecce ad caput suum subcinericius panis et vas aquae comedit ergo et bibit et rursum obdormivit
7reversusque est angelus Domini secundo et tetigit eum dixitque illi surge comede grandis enim tibi restat via
8qui cum surrexisset comedit et bibit et ambulavit in fortitudine cibi illius quadraginta diebus et quadraginta noctibus usque ad montem Dei Horeb
9cumque venisset illuc mansit in spelunca et ecce sermo Domini ad eum dixitque illi quid hic agis Helia
10at ille respondit zelo zelatus sum pro Domino Deo exercituum quia dereliquerunt pactum Domini filii Israhel altaria tua destruxerunt et prophetas tuos occiderunt gladio et derelictus sum ego solus et quaerunt animam meam ut auferant eam
11et ait ei egredere et sta in monte coram Domino et ecce Dominus transit et spiritus grandis et fortis subvertens montes et conterens petras ante Dominum non in spiritu Dominus et post spiritum commotio non in commotione Dominus
12et post commotionem ignis non in igne Dominus et post ignem sibilus aurae tenuis
13quod cum audisset Helias operuit vultum suum pallio et egressus stetit in ostio speluncae et ecce vox ad eum dicens quid agis hic Helia
14et ille respondit zelo zelatus sum pro Domino Deo exercituum quia dereliquerunt pactum tuum filii Israhel altaria tua destruxerunt et prophetas tuos occiderunt gladio et derelictus sum ego solus et quaerunt animam meam ut auferant eam
15et ait Dominus ad eum vade et revertere in viam tuam per desertum in Damascum cumque perveneris ungues Azahel regem super Syriam
16et Hieu filium Namsi ungues regem super Israhel Heliseum autem filium Saphat qui est de Abelmaula ungues prophetam pro te
17et erit quicumque fugerit gladium Azahel occidet eum Hieu et qui fugerit gladium Hieu interficiet eum Heliseus
18et derelinquam mihi in Israhel septem milia universorum genua quae non sunt incurvata Baal et omne os quod non adoravit eum osculans manum
19profectus ergo inde repperit Heliseum filium Saphat arantem duodecim iugis boum et ipse in duodecim arantibus unus erat cumque venisset Helias ad eum misit pallium suum super illum
20qui statim relictis bubus cucurrit post Heliam et ait osculer oro te patrem meum et matrem meam et sic sequar te dixitque ei vade et revertere quod enim meum erat feci tibi
21reversus autem ab eo tulit par boum et mactavit illud et in aratro boum coxit carnes et dedit populo et comederunt consurgensque abiit et secutus est Heliam et ministrabat ei
