Cave of Elijah in Wikipedia
The Cave of Elijah is a cave in which the biblical Elijah
sought shelter on his journey in the wilderness.
Elijah the Prophet of Yahweh traveled, for 40 days and 40
nights into the Wilderness of Sin, to Mount Horeb, the
original mountain where Moses saw the burning bush and where
the Israelites made a covenant with God. Upon reaching the
Mountain, he sought shelter in a cave.
God again spoke to Elijah (1 Kings 19:9 ): "What doest thou
Elijah did not give a direct answer to the LORD's question
but evades and equivocates, implying that the work the LORD
had begun centuries earlier had now come to nothing, and
that his own work was fruitless. Unlike Moses, who tried to
defend Israel when they sinned with the golden calf, Elijah
bitterly complains over the Israelites' unfaithfulness and
says he is the "only one left".
Up until this time Elijah has only the word of God to guide
him, but now he is told to go outside the cave and "stand
before the Lord." A terrible wind passes, but God was not in
the wind. A great earthquake shook the mountain, but God was
not in the earthquake. Then a fire passes the mountain, but
God was not in the fire.
Then a "still small voice" comes to Elijah and asks again,
"What doest thou here, Elijah?" Elijah again evades the
question and his lament is unrevised, showing that he did
not understand the importance of the divine revelation he
had just witnesed.
God then sends him out again, this time to Damascus to
anoint Hazael as king of Syria, Jehu as king of Israel, and
Elisha as his replacement.
Mount Horeb is thought to be located in the land of Midian.
