Bible: 2 Kings 1:1-4

Elijah Confronts the King and His Commanders

1:1 After Ahab died, Moab rebelled against Israel. 1  1:2 Ahaziah fell through a window lattice in his upper chamber in Samaria 2  and was injured. He sent messengers with these orders, 3 Go, ask 4  Baal Zebub, 5  the god of Ekron, if I will survive this injury.”

1:3 But the Lord’s angelic messenger told Elijah the Tishbite, “Get up, go to meet the messengers from the king of Samaria. Say this to them: ‘You must think there is no God in Israel! That explains why you are on your way to seek an oracle from Baal Zebub the god of Ekron. 6  1:4 Therefore this is what the Lord says, “You will not leave the bed you lie on, for you will certainly die!”’” So Elijah went on his way.
