1 Kings 19:1–4 (Listen)

Elijah Flees Jezebel

19:1 Ahab told Jezebel all that Elijah had done, and how he had killed all the prophets with the sword. Then Jezebel sent a messenger to Elijah, saying, “So may the gods do to me and more also, if I do not make your life as the life of one of them by this time tomorrow.” Then he was afraid, and he arose and ran for his life and came to Beersheba, which belongs to Judah, and left his servant there.

But he himself went a day’s journey into the wilderness and came and sat down under a broom tree. And he asked that he might die, saying, “It is enough; now, O LORD, take away my life, for I am no better than my fathers.”

Hymn: TLH 342, st. 1,5: Chief of Sinners, Though I Be

Hymnary.org Organ Audio



1. Chief of sinners though I be, 
Jesus shed His blood for me; 
Died that I might live on high, 
Lived that I might never die, 
As the branch is to the vine, 
I am His, and He is mine. 

5. O my Savior, help afford 
By Thy Spirit and Thy Word! 
When my wayward heart would stray, 
Keep me in the narrow way; 
Grace in time of need supply 
While I live and when I die.
