Abstract This article deals with the story of the prophet Elijah's flight from the threats of Queen Jezebel in 1 Kings 19, which is classified as a story of a ‘departure on a journey’. The article identifies the features of this pattern which are reflected in this account, and adduces the distinctive characteristics of the example under discussion which deviate from the pattern and thereby help elucidate the significance of Elijah's experience and the evaluation of the figure of the prophet. The discussion distinguishes between two journeys described in this chapter: the flight to the desert (vv. 1–8a) and the journey to Horeb (vv. 8b–21).
