Chapter 17: Yliyah Stops the Rain Causing a Drought as a Warning to Ahab: Yah Sends Ravens to Feed Yliyah Bread and Meat at the Brook Cherith

1 And Yliyah the Tishbite, of the inhabitants of Gilead, said to Ahab, “As Yah Almighty of Ysrayl lives, before whom I stand, there shall not be dew nor rain these years, except at my word”. 2 Then the word of Yah came to him saying: 3 “Get away from here and turn eastward and hide by the Brook Cherith, which flows into the Yordan. 4 So he went and did according to the word of Yah, for he went and stayed by the Brook Cherith, which flows into the Yordan. 6 The ravens brought him bread and meat in the morning and bread and meat in the evening and he drank from the brook. 7 And it happened after a while that the brook dried up because there had been no rain in the land.

*Compare to Psalm 68:6, the rebellious dwell in a dry land. Also compare to Luke 4:25, Yliyah shut the heavens up for 3 years and 6 months causing famine in the land, Yahoshua said.  Also James 5:17-18.

Yliyah and the Widow in Zarephath: Yah Blesses the Widow For Blessing Yliyah with Bread and Water

8 Then the word of Yah came to him saying: 9 “Arise, go to Zarephath which belongs to Sidon and dwell there. See, I have commanded a widow there to provide for you”. 10 So he arose and went to Zarephath. And when he came to the gate of the city, indeed a widow was there gathering sticks. And he called to her and said, “Please bring me a little water in a cup, that I may drink”. 11 And as she was going to get it, he called to her and said, “Please bring me a morsel of bread in your hand”. 12 So she said, “As Yah your Almighty lives, I do not have bread, only a handful of flour in a bin and a little oil in a jar and see, I am gathering a couple of sticks that I may go in and prepare it for myself and my son, that we eat it and die”. (Remember when Hagar was preparing her and her son to die in Genesis 21:19? Yah saw what Hagar was doing just like he saw this widow). 13 And Yliyah said to her, “Do not fear. Go and do as you have said but make me a small cake from it first and bring it to me and afterward make some for yourself and your son. 14 For thus says Yah Almighty of Ysrayl: ‘The bin of flour shall not be used up nor shall the jar of oil run dry, until the day Yah sends rain on the earth’.” 15 So she went away and did according to the word of Yliyah and she and he and her household ate for many days. 16 The bin of flour was not used up nor did the jar of oil run dry according to the word of Yah which He spole by Yliyah.

*Compare to Psalm 37:25, the righteous don’t go without bread and Proverbs 10:3, Yah does not allow the righteous soul to famine. See Luke 4:25-26, Yahoshua said there were many widows in the land in this famine but Yliyah was only sent to the widow of Zarephath.

Yliyah Revives the Widow’s Son

17 Now it happened, after these things that the son of the woman who owned the house became sick. And his sickness was so serious that there was no breath left in him. 18 So she said to Yliyah, “What have I to do with you, O man of Yah? Have you come to me to bring my sin to remembrance and to kill my son”? 19 And he said to her, “Give me your son”. So he took him out of her arms and carried him to the upper room where he was staying and laid him on his own bed. 20 Then he cried out to Yah and said, “O Yah my Power, have You also brought tragedy on the widow with whom I lodge, by killing her son”? 21 And he stretched himself out on the child three times and cried out to Yah and said, “O Yah my Power, I pray, let this child’s soul (breath)  come back to him”. 22 Then Yah heard the voice of Yliyah and the breath of the child came back to him and he revived. 23 And Yliyah took the child and brought him down from the upper room into the house and gave him to his mother. And Yliyah said, “See, your son lives”! 24 Then the woman said to Yliyah, “Now by this, I know that you are a man of Yah and that the word of Yah in your mouth is the truth”.

*Compare to Luke 7:11-17, Yahoshua revived the son of the widow of Nain. Yahoshua healed the centurion’s servant who was ready to die, Luke 7:1-10. Yahoshua revived the little girl of Yairus in Luke 8:41-42; 49-55. Yahoshua raised Lazarus John 11:1-44.

Chapter 18: Jezebel Massacres the Prophets: Ahab Takes His Servant Obadiyah to Look for Water for the Animals: Obadiyah Fears Yah and Hides the Prophets Fifty to a cave and Feeds them Bread and Water

1 And it came to pass, after many days that the word of Yah came to Yliyah, in the third year saying: “Go, present yourself to Ahab and I will send rain on the earth”. 2 So Yliyah went to present himself to Ahab and there was a severed famine in Samaria. 3 And Ahab had called Obadiyah, who was in charge of his house. Now Obadiyah feared Yah greatly. 4 For so it was, while Jezebel (Isabel) massacred the prophets of Yah, that Obadiyah had taken one hundred prophets and hidden them, fifty to a cave and had fed them with bread and water. 5 And Ahab had said to Obadiyah, “Go into the land to all the springs of water and to all the brooks. Perhaps we may find grass to keep the horses and mules alive, so that we will not have to kill any livestock”. 6 So they divided the land between them to explore it. Ahab went one way by himself and Obadiyah went another way by himself.

Yliyah Sends a Message to Ahab Who Had Been Hunting Him For Years Through Obadiyah

7 Now as Obadiyah was on his way, suddenly Yliyah met him and he recognized him and fell on his face and said, “Is that you, my master Yliyah”? 8 And he answered him, “It is I. Go tell your master, ‘Yliyah is here’.” 9 So he said, “How have I sinned, that you are delivering your servant into the hand of Ahab, to kill me? 10 As Yah your Almighty lives, there is no nation or kingdom where my master has not sent someone to hunt for you and when they said, ‘He is not here,’ he took an oath from the kingdom or nation that they could not find you. 11 And now you say, ‘Go, tell your master, Yliyah is here’!” 12 “And it shall come to pass, as soon as I am gone from you, that the Spirit of Yah will carry you to a place I do not know. So when I go and tell Ahab and he cannot find you, he will kill me. But I, your servant have feared Yah from my youth. 13 Was it not reported to my master what I did when Jezebel killed the prophets of Yah, how I hid one hundred men of Yah’s prophets, fifty to a cave and fed them with bread and water? 14 And now you say, ‘Go, tell your master, Yliyah is here’. He will kill me!” 15 Then Yliyah said, “As Yah of Hosts lives, before whom I stand, I will surely present myself to him today”. 16 So Obadiyah went to meet Ahab and told him and Ahab went to meet Yliyah.

Ahab Calls Yliyah O Troubler: Yliyah Asks Ahab to Bring All Ysrayl Especially the Prophets of Baal and Asherah to Mount Carmyl

17 Then it happened, when Ahab saw Yliyah, that Ahab said tohim, “Is that you, O troubler of Ysrayl”? 18 And he answered, “I have not troubled Ysrayl but you and your father’s house have, in that you have forsaken the commandments of Yah and have followed the Baals. 19 Now therefore, send and gather all Ysrayl to me on Mount Carmyl, the four hundred and fifty prophets of Baal and the four hundred prophets of Asherah (the Canaanite goddess) who eat at Jezebel’s table”.  *Compare to Revelation 2:20, they sit at Jezebel’s table eating foods sacrificed to the gods.

Yliyah Warns the People About Having Two Opinions: The Children of Ysrayl Accept Yliyah’s Challenge: The Showdown at Mount Carmyl

20 So Ahab sent for all the Children of Ysrayl and gathered the prophets together on Mount Carmyl. 21 And Yliyah came to all the people and said, “How long will you falter between two opinions? If Yah is YL, follow Him but if Baal, follow him”. But the people answered him not a word. 22 Then Yliyah said to the people, “I alone am left a prophet of Yah but Baal’s people are four hundred and fifty men. 23 Therefore, let them give us two bulls and let them choose one bull for themselves, cut it in pieces and lay it on the wood but put no fire under it and I will prepare the other bull and lay it on the wood but put no fire under it. 24 Then you call on the name of your gods and I will call on the name of Yah and the Mighty One who answers by fire, He is Almighty”. So all the people answered and said, “It is well spoken”.

The Prophets of Baal Call Upon Him But Baal Does Not Show Up: Yliyah Laughs or Mocks Baal and His Prophets

25 Now Yliyah said to the prophets of Baal, “Choose one bull for yourselves and prepare it first, for you are many and call on the name of your god but put no fire under it”. 26 So they took the bull which was given them and they prepared it and called on the name of Baal from morning till noon saying, “O Baal, hear us”! But there was no voice. No one answered. Then they leaped about the altar which they had made. (Sounds like they caught the holy ghost, laughs out loud). 27 And so it was, at noon, that Yliyah mocked them and said, “Cry aloud, for he is a god. Either he is meditating or he is busy or he is on a journey or perhaps he is sleeping and must be awakened”. 28 So they cried aloud and cut themselves, as was their custom, with knives and lances, until the blood gushed out on them. 29 And when midday was past, they prophesied until the time of the offering of the evening sacrifice. But there was no voice. No one answered. No one paid attention.

*Leviticus 19:28, You shall not make cuttings in your flesh for the dead (and also the spiritually dead, you shall not do it).

Yliyah Proves He is Yah’s Servant: Twelves Stones For Ysrayl Used For the Altar of Yah: The Fire of Yah: The Children of Ysrayl Worship Yah with their Faces to the Ground: The Prophets of Baal are Executed

30 Then Yliyah said to all the people, “Come near to me”. So all the people came near to him. And he repaired the altar of Yah that was broken down. 31 And Yliyah took twelve stones, according to the number of the tribes of the sons of Yahqob, to whom the word of Yah had come saying: “Ysrayl shall be your name”. (See Genesis 32:28). 32  Then with the stones he built an altar in the name of Yah and he made a trench around the altar large enough to hold two seahs of seed. 33 And he put the wood in order, cut the bull in pieces and laid it on the wood and said, “Fill four waterpots with water and pour it on the burnt sacrifice and on the wood”. 34 Then he said, “Do it a second time” and they did it a third time. *(Yliyah laid on the child 3 times, also). 35 So the water ran all around the altar and he also filled the trench with water. 36 And it came to pass, at the time of the offering of the evening sacrifice, that Yliyah the prophet came near and said, “Yah Father of Abraham, Yitshaq and Ysrayl, let it be known this day that You are the Power in Ysrayl and I am Your servant and that I have done all these things at Your word. 37 Hear  me, O Yah, hear me, that this people may know that You are the Almighty Yah and that You have turned their hearts back to You again”. 38 Then the fire of Yah fell and consumed the burnt sacrifice and the wood and the stones and the dust and it licked up the water that was in the trench. 39 Now when all the people saw it, they fell on their faces and they said, “Yah, He is the Power”! Yah, He is the Almighty”! 40 And Yliyah said to them, “Seize the prophets of Baal! Do not let one of them escape”! So they seized them and Yliyah brought them down to the Brook Kishon and executed them there.

Yah Sends Rain and Ends the Drought: Yah Sends Ahab to Yezreyl by Chariot During the Rain and Yliyah Beats Him There to Show the Esteem of Yah

41 Then Yliyah said to Ahab, “Go up, eat and drink for there is the sound of abundance of rain”. 42 So Ahab went up to eat and drink. And Yliyah went up to the top of Carmyl. Then he bowed down on the ground and put his face between his knees–43 And said to his servant, “Go up now, look toward the sea”. So he went up and looked and said, “There is nothing”. And seven times he said, “Go again”. 44 Then it came to pass the seventh time, that he said, “There is a cloud, as small as a man’s hand, rising out of the sea”! So he said, “Go up, say to Ahab, ‘Prepare your chariot and go down before the rain stops you’.” 45 Now it happened in the meantime that the sky became black with clouds and wind and there was a heavy rain. So Ahab rode away and went to Yezreyl. 46 Then the hand of Yah came upon Yliyah and he girded up his loins and ran ahead of Ahab to the entrance of Yezreyl.

The S.A. Spirit

The Set-apart Spirit let you see the correlation between Yahoshua 6:26; 1 Kings 16:34 Ahab letting them built up Yericho and King Hezikiyah tearing down the high places and King Manasseh building them back up, 2 Chronicles 33:3, 10-17, 2 Kings 21:1-18, Pseudepigrapha Volume 2, chapter 2 Ascension of Isaiah. I totally forgot about Hezekiyah and Manasseh. Thank you Man of Yah.

Chapter 15: Abiyah Reigns Three Years in Yahudah: Abiyah Does Not Have a Heart For Yah

1 In the eighteenth year of King Yeroboam (of Ysrayl), the son of Nebat, Abiyah became king over Yahudah. 2 He reigned three years in Yahrushalom. His mother’s name was Maacah the granddaughter of Abishalom (See 2 Chronicles 11:21, Abiyah is Rehoboam’s son). 3 And he walked in all the sins of his father, which he had done before him. His heart was not loyal to Yah his Almighty as was the heart of his father David. 4 Nevertheless, for David’s sake Yah his Almighty gave him a lamp in Yahrushalom, by setting up his son after him and by establishing Yahrushalom–5 Because David did what was right in the eyes of Yah and had not turned aside from anything that He commanded him all the days of his life, except in the matter of Uriyah the Hittite. 6 And there was war between Rehoboam (some transcripts read Abiyah) and Yeroboam all the days of his life. 7 Now the rest of the acts of Abiyah and all that he did, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Yahudah? And there was war between Abiyah and Yeroboam. 8 So Abiyah rested with his fathers and they buried him in the City of David. Then Asayah his son reigned in his place.

Asayah Reigns Forty-one Years in Yahudah: Asayah is loyal to Yah

9 In the twentieth year of Yeroboam king of Ysrayl, Asayah became king over Yahudah. 10 And he reigned forty-one years in Yahrushalim. His grandmother’s name was Maachah the granddaughter of Abishalom. 11 Asayah did what was right in the eyes of Yah, as did his father David. 12 And he banished the perverted persons (or those practicing sodomy and/or temple prostitution in religious rituals with the fallen angels) from the land and removed all the idols that his fathers had made. 13 Also he removed Maachah his grandmother from being queen mother because she had made an obscene image of Asherah (a Canaanite goddess). And Asayah cut down her obscene image and burned it by the Brook Kidron. 14 But the high places were not removed. Nevertheless, Asayah’s heart was loyal to Yah all his days. 15 He also brought into the house of Yah the things which his father had dedicated and the things which he himself had dedicated: silver and gold and utensils.

Asayah King of Yahudah and Baasha King of Ysrayl Go to War

16 Now there was war between Asayah and Baasha king of Ysrayl all their days. 17 And Baasha king of Ysrayl came up against Yahudah and built Ramah, that he might let none go out or come in to Asayah king of Yahudah. 18 Then Asayah took all the silver and gold that was left in the treasuries of the house of Yah and the treasuries of the king’s house and delivered them into the hand of his servants. And King Asayah sent them to Ben-Hadad the son of Tabrimmon, the son of Hezion, king of Syria, who dwelt in Damascus saying: 19 “Let there be a treaty between you and me, as there was between my father and your father. See, I have sent you a present of silver and gold. Come and break your treaty with Baasha king of Ysrayl, so that he will withdraw from me”. 20 So Ben-Hadad heeded King Asayah and sent the captains of his armies against the cities of Ysrayl. He attacked Iyon, Dan, Abyl Beth Maachah and all Chinneroth with all the land of Naphtali. 21 Now it happened, when Baasha heard it, that he stopped building Ramah and remained in Tirzah. 22 Then King Asayah made a proclamation throughout all Yahudah, none was exempted. And they took away the stones and timber of Ramah, which Baasha had used for building and with them King Asayah built Geba of Benyamin and Mizpah.

Asayah Dies From a Disease of the Feet and His Son Yahoshaphat Rules Yahudah

23 The rest of all the acts of Asayah, all his might, all that he did and the cities which he built, are they not written in the book of chronicles of the kings of Yahudah? But in the time of his old age he was diseased in his feet. (It’s ironic that the name Asayah means physician or healer of Yah but Asayah did not ask Yah to heal him, 2 Chronicles 16:12. He may have died from Diabetes which usually attacks the feet and legs first). 24 So Asayah rested with his fathers and was buried with his fathers in the City of David his father. Then Yahoshaphat his son reigned in his place.

Nadab Reigns in Ysrayl For Two Years: Nadab Did Not Walk in the Ways of Yah: Baasha From the Tribe of Issachar Kills Nadab: Yah’s Prophesy Against the House of Yeroboam is Fulfilled

25 Now Nadab the son of Yeroboam became the king over Ysrayl in the second year of Asayah of Yahudah and he reigned over Ysrayl two years. 26 And he did evil in the sight of Yah and walked in the way of his father and in his sin by which he had made Ysrayl sin. 27 Then Baasha the son of Ahiyah, of the house of Issachar conspired against him. And Baasha killed him at Gibbethon, which belonged to the Philistines, while Nadab and all Ysrayl laid seige to Gibbethon. 28 Baasha killed him in the third year of Asayah king of Yahudah and reigned in his place. 29 And it was so, when he became king, that he killed all the house of Yeroboam. He did not leave to Yeroboam anyone that breathed, until he had destroyed him, according to the word of Yah which He had spoken by His servant Ahiyah the Shilonite (1 Kings 14:10-11)–30 Because of the sins of Yeroboam which he had sinned and by which he had made Ysrayl sin because of his provocation with which he had provoked Yah Almighty of Ysrayl to anger.

Nadab Rest with His Fathers

31 Now the rest of the acts of Nadab and all that he did, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Ysrayl? 32 And there was war between Asayah and Baasha king of Ysrayl all their days. *Nadab means generous.

Baasha Reigns in Ysrayl For Twenty-Four Years and Does Evil in the Sight of Yah

33 In the third year of Asayah king of Yahudah, Baasha the son of Ahiyah became king over all Ysrayl in Tirzah and reigned twenty-four years. 34 He did evil in the sight of Yah and walked in the way of Yeroboam and in his sin by which he had made Ysrayl sin. (Baasha means Baal heals and isn’t it ironic that the healer of Yah, Asayah went to war with Baal heals or Baasha).

Chapter 16: Yah Sends the Prophet Yahu to Prophesy Against Baasha

1 Then the word of Yah came to Yahu the son of Hananiyah against Baasha saying: 2 “Inasmuch as I lifted you out of the dust and made you ruler over My people Ysrayl and you have walked in the way of Yeroboam and have made My people Ysrayl sin, to provoke Me to anger with their sins–2 Surely I will take away the posterity of Baasha and the posterity of his house and I will make your house like the house of Yeroboam the son of Nebat. 4 The dogs shall eat whoever belongs to Baasha and dies in the city and the birds of the air shall eat whoever died in the fields”.

Baasha Rests with His Fathers and His Son Ylah Becomes King in Ysrayl

5 Now the rest of the acts of Baasha, what he did and his might, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Ysrayl? 6 So Baasha rested with his fathers and was buried in Tirzah. Then Ylah his son reigned in his place. 7 And also the word of Yah came by the prophet Yahu the son of Hananiyah against Baasha and his house because of all the evil that he did in the sight of Yah in provoking Him to anger with the work of his hands, in being like the house of Yeroboam and because he killed them.

Ylah Reigns Two Years in Ysrayl: Zimri Kills Ylah

8 In the twenty-sixth year of Asayah king of Yahudah, Ylah the son of Baasha became king over Ysrayl and reigned tow years in Tizrah. 9 Now his servant Zimri, commander of half his chariots, conspired against him as he was in Tirzah drinking himself drunk in the house of Arza, steward of his house in Tirzah. 10 And Zimri went in and struck him and killed him in the twenty-seventh year of Asayah king of Yahudah and reigned in his place. 11 Then it came to pass, when he began to reign, as soon as he was seated on his throne, that he killed all the household of Baasha. He did not leave him one male, neither of his relatives nor of his friends. 12 Thus Zimri destroyed all the household of Baasha according to the word of Yah, which He spoke against Baasha by Yahu the prophet (1 Kings 16:3-4). 13 For all the sins of Baasha and the sins of Ylah his son, by which they had sinned and by which they had made Ysrayl sin, in provoking Yah Almighty to anger with their idols.

Ylah Rests with His Fathers

14 Now the rest of the acts of Ylah and all that he did, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Ysrayl?

Zimri Reigns in Ysrayl Seven Days: The Children of Ysrayl Make Omri Their King Because they Did Not Like That Ylah was Killed: Zimri Kills Himself in a House Fire

15 In the twenty-seventh year of Asayah king of Yahudah, Zimri had reigned in Tirzah seven days. And the people were encamped against Gibbethon, which belonged to the Philistines. 16 Now the people who were encamped heard it said, “Zimri has conspired and also has killed the king”. So all Ysrayl made Omri, the commander of the army, king over Ysrayl that day in the camp. 17 Then Omri and all Ysrayl with him went up from Gibbethon and they besieged Tirzah. 18 And it happened, when Zimri saw that the city was taken, that he went into the citadel of the king’s house and burned the king’s house down upon himself with fire and died– 19 Because of the sins which he had committed in doing evil in the sight of Yah, in walking in the way of Yeroboam and in his sin which he had committed to make Ysrayl sin.

*Walking in the ways of Yeroboam means these kings of Ysrayl set up idols and had the children of Ysrayl serve them.

Zimri’s Acts Written in Chronicles

20 Now the rest of the acts of Zimri and the treason he committed, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Ysrayl?

Omri Reigns Twelve Years in Ysrayl: Omri Did Evil Worse Than All Before Him: Samaria Becomes the Capital of the Northern Kingdom and How Samaria Got Its Name

21 Then the people of Ysrayl were divided into two parts: half of the people followed Tibni the son of Ginath, to make him king and half followed Omri. 22 But the people who followed Omri prevailed over the people who followed Tibni the son of Ginath. So Tibni died and Omri reigned. 23 In the thirty-first year of Asayah king of Yahudah, Omri became king over Ysrayl and reigned twelve years. Six years he reigned in Tirzah. 24 And he bought the hill of Samaria from Shemar for two talents of silver. Then he built on the hill and called the name of the city which he built, Samaria, after the name of Shemar, owner of the hill. 25 Omri did evil in the eyes of Yah and did worse than all who were before him. 26 For he walked in all the ways of Yeroboam the son of Nebat and in his sin by which he had made Ysrayl sin, provoking Yah of Ysrayl to anger with their idols.

Omri Rests with His Fathers and His Son Ahab Reigns Ysrayl

27 Now the rest of the acts of Omri which he did and the might that he showed, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Ysrayl? 28 So Omri rested with his fathers and was buried in Samaria. Then Ahab his son reigned in his place.

Ahab Reigns Twenty-two Years in Ysrayl: Ahab Marries Isabel and Serves Baal: Yericho is Rebuilt

29 In the thirty-eighth year of Asayah king of Yahudah, Ahab the son of Omri became king over Ysrayl and Ahab the son of Omri reigned over Ysrayl in Samaria twenty-two years. 30 Now Ahab the son of Omri did evil in the sight of Yah, more than all who were before him. 31 And it came to pass, as though it had been a trivial thing for him to walk in the sins of Yeroboam the son of Nebat, that he took as wife Isabel (Jezebel) the daughter of Ethbaal, king of the Sidonians and he went and served Baal and worshiped him. 32 Then he set up an altar for Baal in the temple of Baal, which he had built in Samaria. 33 And Ahab made a wooden image (a Canaanite goddess). Ahab did more to provoke Yah of Ysrayl to anger than all the kings of Ysrayl who were before him. 34 In his days Hiyl of Bethyl built Yericho. He laid its foundation with Abiram his first-born and with his youngest son Segub he set up its gates, according to the word of Yah, which He had spoken through Yahoshua the son of Nun (Compare to Yahoshua 6:26, Yah said He would curse any man that rebuilt Yericho in the book of Yahoshua and this man and his sons rebuilt Yericho and Ahab did not stop him. Also compare to King Hezekiyah tearing down high places and King Manasseh building them up again, 2 Chronicles 33:3,10-17, 2 Kings 21:1-18, Pseudepigrapha Volume 2, Chapter 2 Ascension of Isaiah).

Praise Yah

Yah knows the days of the upright and their inheritance shall be forever. They shall not be ashamed in the evil time and in the days of famine, they shall be satisfied…I have been young and now am old. Yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken. Nor his descendants begging bread. Yah will not allow the righteous soul to famish…HalleluYah.

Psalm 37:18-19; 25 and Proverbs 10:3

Alone at the Well

livingwater

Hagar was a woman rejected and alone at a well. She ran away from the harsh treatment of Sarai in Genesis 16. Yah appeared to Hagar in the form of His angel telling her that she was carrying a son and what to name the son. And Hagar said about the One who sees her  ‘You are the YL who sees’ and ‘Have I also here seen Him who sees me’? And she named the place Beer Lahai Roi which literally means ‘Well of the One who lives and sees me’. Yah gave Hagar living water.

When Hagar and her son Ishmayl were banished by the family, Yah appeared to Hagar again. In Genesis 21:19, Yah opened Hagar’s eyes and miraculously there was a well of water waiting for her and her son. Where did this well of water come from? Probably the ground. Yah gave Hagar living waters twice.

In John chapter 4:1-26, there was a Samaritan woman rejected by many men at a well. She spoke truthfully telling Yahoshua about the men she has had in verses 16-18. Yahoshua offered her living water.

Did you feel alone when Yah found you, also?

Chapter 13: A Man of Yah or Prophet Delivers a Message from Yah  to Yeroboam Condemning the Altar at Bethyl

1 And behold, a man of Yah from Yahudah to Bethyl by the word of Yah and Yeroboam stood by the altar to burn incense. 2 Then he cried out against the altar by the word of Yah and said, “O altar, altar”! Thus says Yah: ‘Behold, a child Yosiyah by name, shall be born to the house of David and on you shall sacrifice the priests of the high places who burn incense on you and men’s bones shall be burned on you”. 3 And he gave a sign the same day saying, “This is the sign which Yah has spoken: Surely the altar shall split apart and the ashes on it shall be poured out”. 4 So it came to pass when King Yeroboam heard the saying of the man of Yah, who cried out his hand from the altar, saying, “Arrest him”! Then his hand, which he stretched out toward him, withered, so that he could not pull it back to himself. 5 The altar also was split apart and the ashes poured out from the altar, according to the sign which the man of Yah had given by the word of Yah. 6 Then the king answered and said to the man of Yah, “Please entreat the favor of Yah your Almighty and pray for me, that my hand may be restored to me”. So the man of Yah entreated Yah and the king’s hand was restored to him and became as before. 7 Then the king said to the man of Yah, “Come home with me and refresh yourself and I will give you a reward”. 8 But the man of Yah said to the king, “If you were to give me half your house, I would not go in with you nor would I eat bread nor drink water in this place. 9 For so it was commanded me by the word of Yah saying, ‘You shall not eat bread nor drink water nor return by the same way you come’.” 10 So he went another way and did not return by the way he came to Bethyl.

*This man of Yah interceded for Yeroboam, Yah heard his prayer and healed Yeroboam.

The Old Prophet from Bethyl: The Man of Yah Disobeys Yah

11 Now an old prophet dwelt in Bethyl and his sons came and told him all the works that the man of Yah had done that day in Bethyl. They also told their father the words which he had spoken to the king. 12 And their father said to them, “Which way did he go”? For his sons had seen (showed him) which way the man of Yah went who came from Yahudah. Then he said to his sons, “Saddle the donkey for me”. So they saddled the donkey for him and he rode on it–14 And went after the man of Yah and found him sitting under an oak. Then he said to him, “Are you the man of Yah who came from Yahudah”? And he said, “I am”. 15 Then he said to him, “Come home with me and eat bread”. 16 And he said, “I cannot return with you nor go in with you. Neither can I eat bread nor drink water with you in this place. 17 For I have been told by the word of Yah, ‘You shall not eat bread nor drink water there nor return by going the way you came’.” 18 He said to him, “I too am a prophet as you are and an angel spoke to me by the word of Yah saying, ‘Bring him back with you to your house, that he may eat bread and drink water’. He was lying to him. 19  So he went back with him and ate bread in his house and drank water.

*The adversary was upon the old prophet because he lied saying “an angel said”. The man of Yah did not refuse like when Yeroboam asked him to stay and eat/drink. It was on his heart to do, Yah read his heart before he went on the mission.

Yah Speaks to the Man of Yah Through the Old Prophet

20 Now it happened, as they sat at the table, that the word of Yah came to the prophet who had brought him back–21 And he cried out to the man of Yah who came from Yahudah saying, “Thus says Yah: ‘Because you have disobeyed the word of Yah and have not kept the commandment which Yah your Father commanded you–22 But you came back, ate bread and drank water in the place of which Yah said to you, ‘Eat no bread and drink no water’ your corpse shall not come to the tomb of your fathers’.”

Yah Sends a Lion to Kill the Man of Yah: The Lion Guards His Corpse and the Donkey Stands By Waiting on the Old Prophet

23 So it was, after he had eaten bread and after he had drunk, that he saddled the donkey for him, the prophet whom he had brought back. 24 When he was gone, a lion met him on the road and killed him. And his corpse was thrown on the road and the donkey stood by it. The lion also stood by the corpse. 25 And there, men passed by and saw the corpse thrown on the road and the lion standing by the corpse. Then they went and told it in the city where the old prophet dwelt. 26 Now when the prophet who had brought him back from the way heard it, he said, “It is the man of Yah who was disobedient to the word of Yah. Therefore, Yah has delivered him to the lion, which has torn him and killed him according to the word of Yah which He spoke to him”. 27 And he spoke to his sons saying, “Saddle the donkey for me”. So they saddled it. 28 Then he went and found his corpse thrown on the road and the donkey and the lion standing by the corpse. The lion had not eaten the corpse nor torn the donkey. 29 And the prophet took up the corpse of the man of Yah, laid it on the donkey and brought it back. So the old prophet came to the city to mourn and to bury him. 30 Then he laid the corpse in his own tomb and they mourned over him saying, “Alas, my brother”! 31 So it was, after he had buried him that he spoke to his sons saying, “When I am dead, then bury me in the tomb where the man of Yah is buried. Lay my bones beside his bones. 32 For the saying which he cried out by the word of Yah against the altar in Bethyl and against all the shrines on the high places which are in the cities of Samaria, will surely come to pass”.

Yeroboam Does Not Repent and Continues to Rebel Against Yah

33 After this event Yeroboam did not turn from his evil way but again he made priests from every class of people for the high places. Whoever wished, he consecrated him and he became one of the priests of the high places. 34 And this thing was the sin of the house of Yeroboam, so as to exterminate and destroy it from the face of the earth.

Chapter 14: Judgment on the House of Yeroboam: Yeroboam’s Son Abiyah becomes Sick and is Sent with His Mother in Disguise to See the Prophet Ahiyah

1 At that time Abiyah the son of Yeroboam became sick. 2 And Yeroboam said to his wife, “Please arise and disguise yourself, that they may not recognize you as the wife of Yeroboam and go to Shiloh. Indeed, Ahiyah the prophet is there, who told me that I would be king over this people. 3 Also take with you ten loaves, some cakes and a jar of honey and go to him. He will tell you what will become of the child”. 4 And Yeroboam’s wife did so. She arose and went to Shiloh and came to the house of Ahiyah. But Ahiyah could not see, for his eyes were glazed by reason of his age.

Yah Tells Ahiyah that Yeroboam’s Wife is Coming Disguised to See Him with the Sick Child

5 Now Yah had said to Ahiyah, “Here is the wife of Yeroboam coming to ask you something about her son, for he is sick. Thus and thus, you shall say to her. For it will be, when she comes in, that she will pretend to be another woman”. 6 And so it was, when Ahiyah heard the sound of her footsteps as she came through the door, he said, “Come in, wife of Yeroboam. Why do you pretend to be another person? For I have been sent to you with bad news. 7 Go, tell Yeroboam, Thus says Yah Father of Ysrayl: ‘Because I exalted you from among the people and made you ruler over My people Ysrayl–8 And tore the kingdom away from the house of David and gave it to you and yet you have not been as My servant David, who kept My commandments and who followed Me with all his heart, to do only what was right in My eyes. 9 But you have done more evil than all who were before you, for you have gone and made for yourself gods and molded images to provoke Me to anger and have cast Me behind your back–10 Therefore, behold! I will bring disaster on the house of Yeroboam and will cut off from Yeroboam every male in Ysrayl, bond and free. I will take away the remnant of the house of Yeroboam, as one takes away refuse (garbage) until it is all gone. 11 The dogs shall eat whoever belongs to Yeroboam and dies in the city and the birds of the air shall eat whoever dies in the field. For Yah has spoken’!” 12 “Arise, therefore, go to your own house. When your feet enter the city, the child shall die.

The Child of Yeroboam that is to Die is Found By Yah to Be the Only Good Child of Yeroboam: Yah Prophesies to Cut off the House of Yeroboam and to Scatter Ysrayl For Worshiping the Gods

13 And all Ysrayl shall mourn for him and bury him, for he is the only one of Yeroboam who shall come to the grave because in him there is found something good toward Yah of Ysrayl in the house of Yeroboam. 14 Moreover, Yah will raise up for Himself a king over Ysrayl who shall cut off the house of Yeroboam. This is the day. What? Even now! 15 For Yah will strike Ysrayl, as a reed is shaken in the water. He will uproot Ysrayl from this good land which He gave to their fathers and will scatter them beyond the River (that is, the Euphrates) because they have made their wooden images (Hebrew Asherim, Canaanite deities) provoking Yah to anger. 16 And He will give Ysrayl up because of the sins of Yeroboam, who sinned and who made Ysrayl sin”.

The Child Dies as They Reach the City as Yah Told the Prophet Ahiyah

17 Then Yeroboam’s wife arose and departed and came to Tirzah. When she came to the threshold of the house, the child died. 18 And they buried him and all Ysrayl mourned for him according to the word of Yah which He spoke through his servant Ahiyah the prophet.

The Death of Yeroboam: Nadab Reigns as King of Ysrayl

19 Now the rest of the acts of Yeroboam, how he made war and how he reigned, indeed they are written in the book of the Chronicles of the Kings of Ysrayl. 20 The period that Yeroboam reigned was twenty-two years. So he rested with his fathers. Then Nadab his son reigned in his place.

Rehoboam Reigns in Yahudah

21 And Rehoboam the son of Solomon reigned in Yahudah. Rehoboam was forty-one years old when he became king. He reigned seventeen years in Yahrushalom, the city which Yah had chosen out of all the tribes of Ysrayl, to put His name there. His mother’s name was Naamah, an Ammonitess.

Yahudah Sins Against Yah Building High Places and Wood Images For the Gods and Under Every Green Tree: Yahudah and Benyamin Practice Temple Sex Like the Nations

22 Now Yahudah did evil in the sight of Yah and they provoked Him to jealousy with their sins which they committed, more than all that their fathers had done. 23 For they also built for themselves high places, sacred pillars and wooden images on every high hill and under every green tree. 24 And there were also perverted persons (Hebrew qadesh, that is, one practicing sodomy and/or temple prostitution in religious rituals to the fallen angels) in the land. They did according to all the abominations of the nations which Yah had cast out before the children of Ysrayl.

Shishak the King of Egypt Takes All the Treasures of the House of Yah and Also Rehoboam’s Treasures as Commanded by Yah

25 It happened in the fifth year of King Rehoboam that Shishak king of Egypt came up against Yahrushalom. 25 And he took away the treasures of the House of Yah and the treasures of the king’s house. He took away everything. He also took away all the gold shields which Solomon had made. 27 Then King Rehoboam made bronze shields in their place and committed them to the hands of the captains of the guard, who guarded the doorway of the king’s house. 28 And whenever the king entered the house of Yah, the guards carried them, then brought them back into the guardroom.

The Death of Rehoboam: Abiyah Reigns as King of Yahudah

29 Now the rest of the acts of Rehoboam and all that he did, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Yahudah? 30 And there was war between Rehoboam and Yeroboam all their days. 31 So Rehoboam rested with his fathers and was buried with his fathers in the City of David. His mother’s name was Naamah, an Ammonitess. Then Abiyah his son reigned in his place.

*Abiyah in Hebrew means Yah is my Father. Abi comes from the Hebrew word for father, Abba.
