The Lord came and said,
     "What are you doing here, Elijah?"  
So Elijah 
said, "I have been very zealous
          for the Lord God of hosts;
     
the children of Israel have killed Your prophets. 
     I alone am 
left; and they seek to take my life."


Then He said, "Go out, and stand

     on the mountain before the Lord." 
Behold, the Lord passed by, and
a great and strong 
wind tore into the mountains
and broke the rocks 
in pieces, 
     but the Lord was not in the wind;
and after the wind an 
earthquake,
     but the Lord was not in the earthquake;
and 
after the earthquake a fire,
     but the Lord was not in the fire; 

and after the fire a still small voice. . . .
