1 Kgs.19:9a, 11-13a
A reading from the book of Kings:
At the mountain of God, Horeb,
Elijah came to a cave where he took shelter.
Then the Lord said to him,
"Go outside and stand on the mountain before the Lord;
the Lord will be passing by."
A strong and heavy wind was rending the mountains
and crushing rocks before the Lord
but the Lord was not in the wind.
After the wind there was an earthquake
but the Lord was not in the earthquake.
After the earthquake there was fire
but the Lord was not in the fire.
After the fire there was a tiny whispering sound.
When he heard this,
Elijah hid his face in his cloak
and went and stood at the entrance of the cave.
The word of the Lord. R. Thanks be to God.
