But I tell you of a truth, Many widows were in Israel in the days of Elias, a when the heaven was shut up three years and six months, when great famine was throughout all the land;
a And Elijah the Tishbite, who was of the inhabitants of Gilead, said unto Ahab, As the LORD God of Israel liveth, before whom I stand, there shall not be dew nor rain these years, but according to my word, 1 Kings xvii. 1. And it came to pass, after many days, that the word of the LORD came to Elijah in the third year, saying, Go, shew thyself unto Ahab; And I will send rain upon the earth. And Elijah went to shew himself unto Ahab. And there was a sore famine in Samaria, xviii. 1, 2. Elias was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain; and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months, Jam. v. 17.

a In that hour Jesus rejoiced in spirit, and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes: even so, Father; for so it seemed good in thy sight, Luke x. 21. Is it not lawful for me to do what I will with mine own? Is thine eye evil because I am good? Matt. xx. 15. For he saith to Moses,
I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion, Rom. ix. 15.
bArise, get thee to Zarephath, which belongeth to Zidon, and dwell there : behold, I have commanded a widow woman there to sustain thee. So he arose, and went to Zarephath. And when he came to the gate of the city, behold, the widow woman was there gathering of sticks : and he called to her, and said, Fetch me, I pray thee, a little water in a vessel, that I may drink, 1 Kings xvii. 9, 10.

And Elisha sent a wash in Jordan seven times, and thy messenger unto him, saying, Go and flesh shall come again to thee, and thou shalt be clean, 9, 10. Then went he down, and dipped himself seven times in Jordan, according to the saying of the man of God : and his fesh came again like unto the flesh of a little child, and he was clean, 14.
