Bible: 2 Kings 1:9-14; 5:1; 25:23, 26
1:9 The king 1 sent a captain and his fifty soldiers 2 to retrieve Elijah. 3 The captain 4 went up to him, while he was sitting on the top of a hill. 5 He told him, “Prophet, 6 the king says, ‘Come down!’” 1:10 Elijah replied to the captain, 7 “If I am indeed a prophet, may fire come down from the sky and consume you and your fifty soldiers!” Fire then came down 8 from the sky and consumed him and his fifty soldiers.
1:11 The king 9 sent another captain and his fifty soldiers to retrieve Elijah. He went up and told him, 10 “Prophet, this is what the king says, ‘Come down at once!’” 11 1:12 Elijah replied to them, 12 “If I am indeed a prophet, may fire come down from the sky and consume you and your fifty soldiers!” Fire from God 13 came down from the sky and consumed him and his fifty soldiers.
1:13 The king 14 sent a third captain and his fifty soldiers. This third captain went up and fell 15 on his knees before Elijah. He begged for mercy, “Prophet, please have respect for my life and for the lives of these fifty servants of yours. 1:14 Indeed, 16 fire came down from the sky and consumed the two captains who came before me, along with their men. 17 So now, please have respect for my life.”
From Adam to Noah
“Two nations 1 are in your womb,
and two peoples will be separated from within you.
One people will be stronger than the other,
and the older will serve the younger.”25:26 When his brother came out with 2 his hand clutching Esau’s heel, they named him Jacob. 3 Isaac was sixty years old 4 when they were born.
