17 Now Elijah the Tishbite, of sTishbe in Gilead, said to Ahab, t“As the Lord, the God of Israel, lives, ubefore whom I stand, vthere shall be neither dew nor rain these years, except by my word.”
Famine, Sword, and Pestilence
14 The word of the Lord that came to Jeremiah concerning ythe drought:
22 Are there any among mthe false gods of the nations nthat can bring rain?
Or can the heavens give showers?
Are you not he, O Lord our God?
We set our hope on you,
ofor you do all these things.
