A Silent Voice 1996

 Elijah was afraid and ran for his life.

When he came to Beersheba in Judah he left his servant there while he himself went a day's journey into the desert.

He came to a juniper tree, sat down under it and prayed that he might die.

'I have had enough LORD', he said, 'take my life I am no better than my ancestors'.

Then he lay down under the tree and fell asleep.
