    After living with the widow and her son for some time during the drought, the son passes due to illness. The widow verbally lasses out at Elijah blaming him for the death of her son. He pays her no mind, and goes inside. Throwing himself upon the child multiple times, Elijah cries out to the Lord to bring the son back to life. The Widow declares, "Now by this I know that thou art a man of God" (KJV).
