God’s Revelation to Elijah

11 Then He said, “Go out, and stand (A)on the mountain before the Lord.” And behold, the Lord (B)passed by, and (C)a great and strong wind tore into the mountains and broke the rocks in pieces before the Lord, but the Lord was not in the wind; and after the wind an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake; 12 and after the earthquake a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire; and after the fire [a]a still small voice.

And (I)Elisha the son of Shaphat of Abel Meholah you shall anoint as prophet in your place. 17 (J)It shall be that whoever escapes the sword of Hazael, Jehu will (K)kill; and whoever escapes the sword of Jehu, (L)Elisha will kill. 18 (M)Yet I have reserved seven thousand in Israel, all whose knees have not bowed to Baal, (N)and every mouth that has not kissed him.”
