Lorde spake to Elias the Thesbite Arise and go vp against the messengers of the king of Samaria and say vnto them Is there not a God in Israel that ye go to aske counsel at Beelzebub the God of Ekrom 4 Wherefore thus saith the Lorde Thou shalt not come downe froÌ the bed on which thou art gone vp but shalt die the death And Elias departed 5 And when the messengers turned backe againe vnto him he

there not a God in Israel that thou sendest to enquyre of Beelzebub the God of Ekrom Therefore thou shalt not come downe from the bed on which thou art gone vp but shalt dye the death 7 And he said
