1st Kings 18:46Wrench

BACK NEXT

Suddenly the hand of YHVH [falls] on EliJah {JAH-Is-El}.
So he belts in his cloak.
He sprints ahead of Ahab's [chariot-horses] all the way [east ~20km from mount Carmel] to JezreEl {El-Plants}!

Paranormal Phenomena

Note: Trained athletes can run long races at about 6 miles per hour.
Horses at 20 to 30. So Elijah was presumably running at about 4 to 8 times the naturally possible speed.
