View of Haifa from Mt. Carmel.


III Kings 18: 41 And Elias said to Achab: Go up, eat, and drink: for there is a sound of abundance of rain. 42 Achab went up to eat and drink: and Elias went up to the top of Carmel, and casting himself down upon the earth put his face between his knees, 43 And he said to his servant: Go up, and look toward the sea. And he went up, and looked, and said: There is nothing. And again he said to him: Return seven times. 44 And at the seventh time, behold, a little cloud arose out of the sea like a man's foot. And he said: Go up and say to Achab: Prepare thy chariot and go down, lest the rain prevent thee. 45 And while he turned himself this way and that way, behold the heavens grew dark, with clouds, and wind, and there fell a great rain.
