intent, has already committed adultery with herin his heart.

it out and throw it away! It is much better for you to lose a part of your body, than to have your whole
body thrown into hell. If yourright hand causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away! It isbetter for
you to lose a part of your body, than to have yourwhole body thrown into hell.

Reflection

Elijah wasn’t originally calledElijah wasn’t originally calledby God. Burning with zeal forYahweh and unable
to stand His rejection by the nation,Elijah took upon himself thetask of defending Yahweh. Hedrew up plans,
never really consulting God’s mind. All hisplans smacked of a God ofgrandiosity—a projection ofhis own narcissistic
grandiosity on to God. At some point, the balloon must burst, and it did.Following the success on Moun tCarmel, Elijah
suffers success depression,turns suicidal,lodges himself in the cave where Moses had received a grandiosetheophany.
Now that Elijah is broken and is willing to learn,God offers the corrective—first by granting him a theophanycontrary to
the one Moses had,thereby teaching him that Godis not to be sought in grandiosespectacles, but in the soundof sheer
silence; and then by commissioning him for God’sown projects which includesanointing his own successor aswell.
To his credit, Elijah obeys and is a changed man, witha new God-experience and ahumbler self.
