[EliJah] replies, โ€œI've been very zealous for [you,] YHVH Elohim over armies.
But the sons of Israel have forsaken your covenant.
They've thrown down your altars.
They've slain your prophets with the sword.
Only I, just me, am left.
And [Jezebel's soldiers are] hunting my life, [dying] to take it away.โ€
