1 Kings 17:8-16 - Elijah And The Widow

8 Then came the word of the LORD unto him, saying, 9 "Up, and get thee to Zarephath a city of Sidon, and dwell there. Behold, I have commanded a widow there to sustain thee." 10 And he arose and went to Zarephath. And when he came to the gate of the city, there was a widow there gathering sticks. And he called to her and said, "Fetch me, I pray thee, a little water in a dish that I may drink." 11 And as she went to fetch it, he cried to her and said, "Bring me, I pray thee, a morsel of bread in thine hand."

12 And she answered, "As surely as the LORD thy God liveth, I have no bread, but even a handful of meal in a pitcher, and a little oil in a cruse. And see, I have gathered a few sticks for to go and bake it for me and my son, that we may eat it and then die."

13 And Elijah said unto her, "Fear not, but go and do as thou hast said: but make me thereof a little cake first of all, and bring it out to me, and afterward make for thee and thy son. 14 For thus sayeth the LORD God of Israel, 'The pitcher of meal shall not be wasted, neither shall thy oil cruse be without oil, until the LORD have sent rain upon the earth.'"

15 And she went and did as Elijah bade. And she and he and her house did eat a good space, 16 and the pitcher of meal wasted not neither was the oil cruse without oil according to the word of the LORD which he spake through Elijah.
