To walk forty days with no shoes was not the difficult part. It was the spears and arrows of Jezebel that were the greatest obstacle. The angel had commanded he go, and Elijah believed, even prayed that there would be some sense of Holy protection, but her words about the sword, and the truth of death of all the prophets at her hand filled him with an earthly fear. Perhaps, he thought, beneath the moon one night, is why He is making walk all the way to Horeb. Forty days beneath the sun. Forty days under the cold moon.
