“Again King Ahaziah sent to Elijah another captain of fifty with his fifty men. He went up and said to him. ‘O man of God, this is the king’s order. ‘Come down quickly!’ But Elijah answered them. ‘If I am a man of God, let fire come down from heaven and consume you and your fifty men.’ Then the fire of God came down from heaven and consumed him and his fifty men.”
For a second time, King Ahaziah sent another 50 men to Elijah. This time they had orders that Elijah should come quickly. However, Elijah answered like he did for the first fifty. If I am a man of God, may you and your men be consumed with fire. Once again, right on cue, the fire from heaven devoured the captain and his 50 men. This was beginning to look like this was not an easy task for King Ahaziah’s men.
