1 Kings 18

I have used surface of and face of about an equal number of times where I could have used just one of them. In the cases I see, the object of the construct is either ground or earth / land. Should I force consistency? You see, even with an automated pattern recognition algorithm, one little slip can produce inconsistency. Porridge is boring without a little bump or two in it, but if someone were to build an anthropology or worse a theology on the randomness of my translation (as people have with the KJV), ... O dear. What is my response? Which should I use? Sometimes I needed surface in other contexts, but the ground, the earth, the land does have a face, does it not?

It's only a matter of 20 or so changes either way. What should I choose? In all contexts, face is used more than 637 times, surface 40 times. I think I will leave it as is for now. The rain on the face of the ground suggests more relief than just surface, as indeed is true, because just as relief penetrates the whole body, so does water on the face of the ground.

סבב I have never seen used as turn with heart as its object. What does Elijah think God has done, is doing in verse 37?

1 Kings 18 Fn Min Max Syll
וַיְהִי֙ יָמִ֣ים רַבִּ֔ים וּדְבַר־יְהוָ֗ה הָיָה֙ אֶל־אֵ֣לִיָּ֔הוּ בַּשָּׁנָ֥ה הַשְּׁלִישִׁ֖ית לֵאמֹ֑ר
לֵ֚ךְ הֵרָאֵ֣ה אֶל־אַחְאָ֔ב וְאֶתְּנָ֥ה מָטָ֖ר עַל־פְּנֵ֥י הָאֲדָמָֽה
1 And it was many days, and the word of Yahweh happened to Elijah in the third year, saying,
Go. Show yourself to Ahab, and I will give rain on the face of the ground.
3e 4C 25
19
וַיֵּ֙לֶךְ֙ אֵֽלִיָּ֔הוּ לְהֵרָא֖וֹת אֶל־אַחְאָ֑ב
וְהָרָעָ֖ב חָזָ֥ק בְּשֹׁמְרֽוֹן
2 And Elijah went to show himself to Ahab.
And the famine resolutely held Samaria.
3e 4A 14
9
וַיִּקְרָ֣א אַחְאָ֔ב אֶל־עֹבַדְיָ֖הוּ אֲשֶׁ֣ר עַל־הַבָּ֑יִת
וְעֹבַדְיָ֗הוּ הָיָ֥ה יָרֵ֛א אֶת־יְהוָ֖ה מְאֹֽד
3 And Ahab called to Obadiah, who was over the house.
(And Obadiah was very fearful of Yahweh.
3d 4B 16
14
וַיְהִי֙ בְּהַכְרִ֣ית אִיזֶ֔בֶל אֵ֖ת נְבִיאֵ֣י יְהוָ֑ה
וַיִּקַּ֨ח עֹבַדְיָ֜הוּ מֵאָ֣ה נְבִאִ֗ים וַֽיַּחְבִּיאֵ֞ם חֲמִשִּׁ֥ים אִישׁ֙ בַּמְּעָרָ֔ה וְכִלְכְּלָ֖ם לֶ֥חֶם וָמָֽיִם
4 And it was when Jezebel cut off the prophets of Yahweh,
that Obadiah took a hundred prophets and camouflaged fifty men in the cave, and fed them bread and water.)
3e 4B 14
32
וַיֹּ֤אמֶר אַחְאָב֙ אֶל־עֹ֣בַדְיָ֔הוּ לֵ֤ךְ בָּאָ֙רֶץ֙ אֶל־כָּל־מַעְיְנֵ֣י הַמַּ֔יִם וְאֶ֖ל כָּל־הַנְּחָלִ֑ים
אוּלַ֣י ׀ נִמְצָ֣א חָצִ֗יר וּנְחַיֶּה֙ ס֣וּס וָפֶ֔רֶד וְל֥וֹא נַכְרִ֖ית מֵהַבְּהֵמָֽה
5 And Ahab said to Obadiah, Go into the land, to all the springs of water, and to the wadis.
Perhaps we may find grass, that we may keep horse and mule alive, and not cut off the beasts.
3e 4C 27
21
וַֽיְחַלְּק֥וּ לָהֶ֛ם אֶת־הָאָ֖רֶץ לַֽעֲבָר־בָּ֑הּ
אַחְאָ֞ב הָלַ֨ךְ בְּדֶ֤רֶךְ אֶחָד֙ לְבַדּ֔וֹ וְעֹֽבַדְיָ֛הוּ הָלַ֥ךְ בְּדֶרֶךְ־אֶחָ֖ד לְבַדּֽוֹ
6 And they divided the land for themselves to pass through it,
Ahab going in one way alone, and Obadiah going in another way alone.
3d 4C 13
27
וַיְהִ֤י עֹבַדְיָ֙הוּ֙ בַּדֶּ֔רֶךְ וְהִנֵּ֥ה אֵלִיָּ֖הוּ לִקְרָאת֑וֹ
וַיַּכִּרֵ֙הוּ֙ וַיִּפֹּ֣ל עַל־פָּנָ֔יו וַיֹּ֕אמֶר הַאַתָּ֥ה זֶ֖ה אֲדֹנִ֥י אֵלִיָּֽהוּ
7 And Obadiah was on the journey, and behold, Elijah encountered him.
And he recognized him and he fell onto his face, and said, Is this you, my lord, Elijah?
3e 4C 19
25
וַיֹּ֥אמֶר ל֖וֹ אָ֑נִי
לֵ֛ךְ אֱמֹ֥ר לַאדֹנֶ֖יךָ הִנֵּ֥ה אֵלִיָּֽהוּ
8 And he said to him, I am.
Go. Say to your lord, Behold, Elijah.
3d 4A 6
13
וַיֹּ֖אמֶר מֶ֣ה חָטָ֑אתִי
כִּֽי־אַתָּ֞ה נֹתֵ֧ן אֶֽת־עַבְדְּךָ֛ בְּיַד־אַחְאָ֖ב לַהֲמִיתֵֽנִי
9 And he said, What is my sin,
that you would give your servant into the hand of Ahab to have me put to death?
3c 4B 7
17
חַ֣י ׀ יְהוָ֣ה אֱלֹהֶ֗יךָ אִם־יֶשׁ־גּ֤וֹי וּמַמְלָכָה֙ אֲ֠שֶׁר לֹֽא־שָׁלַ֨ח אֲדֹנִ֥י שָׁם֙ לְבַקֶּשְׁךָ֔ וְאָמְר֖וּ אָ֑יִן
וְהִשְׁבִּ֤יעַ אֶת־הַמַּמְלָכָה֙ וְאֶת־הַגּ֔וֹי כִּ֖י לֹ֥א יִמְצָאֶֽכָּה
10 B As Yahweh your God lives there is no nation or kingdom where my Lord has not sent to seek you. And when they said, He is not,
then he made the kingdom or the nation swear that they had not found you.
3e 4C 32
20
וְעַתָּ֖ה אַתָּ֣ה אֹמֵ֑ר
לֵ֛ךְ אֱמֹ֥ר לַאדֹנֶ֖יךָ הִנֵּ֥ה אֵלִיָּֽהוּ
11 So now you say,
Go. Say to your lord, Behold, Elijah.
3d 4B 7
13
וְהָיָ֞ה אֲנִ֣י ׀ אֵלֵ֣ךְ מֵאִתָּ֗ךְ וְר֨וּחַ יְהוָ֤ה ׀ יִֽשָּׂאֲךָ֙ עַ֚ל אֲשֶׁ֣ר לֹֽא־אֵדָ֔ע וּבָ֨אתִי לְהַגִּ֧יד לְאַחְאָ֛ב וְלֹ֥א יִֽמְצָאֲךָ֖ וַהֲרָגָ֑נִי
וְעַבְדְּךָ֛ יָרֵ֥א אֶת־יְהוָ֖ה מִנְּעֻרָֽי
12 And it will be, I myself will go from you, and the spirit of Yahweh will lift you up, (in what I do not know how), and I will go in to announce to Ahab, and he will not find you, and they will slay me.
And your servant has feared Yahweh from my youth.
3c 4C 44
12
הֲלֹֽא־הֻגַּ֤ד לַֽאדֹנִי֙ אֵ֣ת אֲשֶׁר־עָשִׂ֔יתִי בַּהֲרֹ֣ג אִיזֶ֔בֶל אֵ֖ת נְבִיאֵ֣י יְהוָ֑ה
וָאַחְבִּא֩ מִנְּבִיאֵ֨י יְהוָ֜ה מֵ֣אָה אִ֗ישׁ חֲמִשִּׁ֨ים חֲמִשִּׁ֥ים אִישׁ֙ בַּמְּעָרָ֔ה וָאֲכַלְכְּלֵ֖ם לֶ֥חֶם וָמָֽיִם
13 Was it not told my lord what I did when Jezebel slew the prophets of Yahweh?
That I camouflaged from the prophets of Yahweh a hundred persons, fifty by fifty men per cave, and fed them bread and water.
3e 4C 24
31
וְעַתָּה֙ אַתָּ֣ה אֹמֵ֔ר לֵ֛ךְ אֱמֹ֥ר לַֽאדֹנֶ֖יךָ הִנֵּ֣ה אֵלִיָּ֑הוּ
וַהֲרָגָֽנִי
14 So now you say, Go. Say to your lord, Behold, Elijah.
And they will slay me.
3d 4B 20
5
וַיֹּ֙אמֶר֙ אֵֽלִיָּ֔הוּ חַ֚י יְהוָ֣ה צְבָא֔וֹת אֲשֶׁ֥ר עָמַ֖דְתִּי לְפָנָ֑יו
כִּ֥י הַיּ֖וֹם אֵרָאֶ֥ה אֵלָֽיו
15 And Elijah said, Yahweh of hosts lives, before whom I stand,
but today. I will show myself to him.
3e 4C 21
8
וַיֵּ֧לֶךְ עֹבַדְיָ֛הוּ לִקְרַ֥את אַחְאָ֖ב וַיַּגֶּד־ל֑וֹ
וַיֵּ֥לֶךְ אַחְאָ֖ב לִקְרַ֥את אֵלִיָּֽהוּ
16 And Obadiah went to encounter Ahab, and made it clear to him.
And Ahab went to encounter Elijah.
3c 4A 15
11
וַיְהִ֛י כִּרְא֥וֹת אַחְאָ֖ב אֶת־אֵלִיָּ֑הוּ
וַיֹּ֤אמֶר אַחְאָב֙ אֵלָ֔יו הַאַתָּ֥ה זֶ֖ה עֹכֵ֥ר יִשְׂרָאֵֽל
17 And it happened that when Ahab saw Elijah,
that Ahab said to him, Are you this agitator of Israel?
3d 4C 11
16
וַיֹּ֗אמֶר לֹ֤א עָכַ֙רְתִּי֙ אֶת־יִשְׂרָאֵ֔ל כִּ֥י אִם־אַתָּ֖ה וּבֵ֣ית אָבִ֑יךָ
בַּֽעֲזָבְכֶם֙ אֶת־מִצְוֺ֣ת יְהוָ֔ה וַתֵּ֖לֶךְ אַחֲרֵ֥י הַבְּעָלִֽים
18 But he said, I have not agitated Israel. In contrast, you and your father's house,
have forsaken the commandments of Yahweh, and have gone after the Baalim.
3e 4C 20
18
וְעַתָּ֗ה שְׁלַ֨ח קְבֹ֥ץ אֵלַ֛י אֶת־כָּל־יִשְׂרָאֵ֖ל אֶל־הַ֣ר הַכַּרְמֶ֑ל
וְאֶת־נְבִיאֵ֨י הַבַּ֜עַל אַרְבַּ֧ע מֵא֣וֹת וַחֲמִשִּׁ֗ים וּנְבִיאֵ֤י הָֽאֲשֵׁרָה֙ אַרְבַּ֣ע מֵא֔וֹת אֹכְלֵ֖י שֻׁלְחַ֥ן אִיזָֽבֶל
19 So now send and collect for me all Israel to mount Carmel,
and the prophets of Baal, four hundred and fifty, and the prophets of the fetish, four hundred, who eat at the table of Jezebel.
3c 4C 19
34
וַיִּשְׁלַ֥ח אַחְאָ֖ב בְּכָל־בְּנֵ֣י יִשְׂרָאֵ֑ל
וַיִּקְבֹּ֥ץ אֶת־הַנְּבִיאִ֖ים אֶל־הַ֥ר הַכַּרְמֶֽל
20 And Ahab sent to all the children of Israel,
and he collected the prophets to mount Carmel.
3e 4B 12
12
וַיִּגַּ֨שׁ אֵלִיָּ֜הוּ אֶל־כָּל־הָעָ֗ם וַיֹּ֙אמֶר֙ עַד־מָתַ֞י אַתֶּ֣ם פֹּסְחִים֮ עַל־שְׁתֵּ֣י הַסְּעִפִּים֒ אִם־יְהוָ֤ה הָֽאֱלֹהִים֙ לְכ֣וּ אַחֲרָ֔יו וְאִם־הַבַּ֖עַל לְכ֣וּ אַחֲרָ֑יו
וְלֹֽא־עָנ֥וּ הָעָ֛ם אֹת֖וֹ דָּבָֽר
21 And Elijah made overture to all people, and he said, How long will you be lame concerning both schisms? If Yahweh is God, go after him, but if Baal, go after him.
And the people did not answer him a word.
3d 4C 49
9
וַיֹּ֤אמֶר אֵלִיָּ֙הוּ֙ אֶל־הָעָ֔ם אֲנִ֞י נוֹתַ֧רְתִּי נָבִ֛יא לַיהוָ֖ה לְבַדִּ֑י
וּנְבִיאֵ֣י הַבַּ֔עַל אַרְבַּע־מֵא֥וֹת וַחֲמִשִּׁ֖ים אִֽישׁ
22 And Elijah said to the people, I myself have remained a prophet of Yahweh, only I.
But the prophets of Baal are four hundred and fifty persons.
3c 4C 22
15
וְיִתְּנוּ־לָ֜נוּ שְׁנַ֣יִם פָּרִ֗ים וְיִבְחֲר֣וּ לָהֶם֩ הַפָּ֨ר הָאֶחָ֜ד וִֽינַתְּחֻ֗הוּ וְיָשִׂ֙ימוּ֙ עַל־הָ֣עֵצִ֔ים וְאֵ֖שׁ לֹ֣א יָשִׂ֑ימוּ
וַאֲנִ֞י אֶעֱשֶׂ֣ה ׀ אֶת־הַפָּ֣ר הָאֶחָ֗ד וְנָֽתַתִּי֙ עַל־הָ֣עֵצִ֔ים וְאֵ֖שׁ לֹ֥א אָשִֽׂים
23 So let them give to us two young bulls, and let them choose for themselves one young bull, and cut it in pieces, and set it on the wood, and no fire will be set.
And myself, I will do the other young bull that I will position on the wood, and I will set no fire.
3e 4B 37
25
וּקְרָאתֶ֞ם בְּשֵׁ֣ם אֱלֹֽהֵיכֶ֗ם וַֽאֲנִי֙ אֶקְרָ֣א בְשֵׁם־יְהוָ֔ה וְהָיָ֧ה הָאֱלֹהִ֛ים אֲשֶׁר־יַעֲנֶ֥ה בָאֵ֖שׁ ה֣וּא הָאֱלֹהִ֑ים
וַיַּ֧עַן כָּל־הָעָ֛ם וַיֹּאמְר֖וּ ט֥וֹב הַדָּבָֽר
24 And you will call in the name of your God, but I, I will call in the name of Yahweh, and it will be the God that answers with fire, he is the God.
And all the people answered and they said, The thing is good.
3c 4B 37
13
וַיֹּ֨אמֶר אֵלִיָּ֜הוּ לִנְבִיאֵ֣י הַבַּ֗עַל בַּחֲר֨וּ לָכֶ֜ם הַפָּ֤ר הָֽאֶחָד֙ וַעֲשׂ֣וּ רִאשֹׁנָ֔ה כִּ֥י אַתֶּ֖ם הָרַבִּ֑ים
וְקִרְאוּ֙ בְּשֵׁ֣ם אֱלֹהֵיכֶ֔ם וְאֵ֖שׁ לֹ֥א תָשִֽׂימוּ
25 And Elijah said to the prophets of Baal, Choose for yourselves one young bull to do first, for you are many.
And call in the name of your God, and set no fire.
3e 4C 35
15
וַ֠יִּקְחוּ אֶת־הַפָּ֨ר אֲשֶׁר־נָתַ֣ן לָהֶם֮ וַֽיַּעֲשׂוּ֒ וַיִּקְרְא֣וּ בְשֵׁם־הַ֠בַּעַל מֵהַבֹּ֨קֶר וְעַד־הַצָּהֳרַ֤יִם לֵאמֹר֙ הַבַּ֣עַל עֲנֵ֔נוּ וְאֵ֥ין ק֖וֹל וְאֵ֣ין עֹנֶ֑ה
וַֽיְפַסְּח֔וּ עַל־הַמִּזְבֵּ֖חַ אֲשֶׁ֥ר עָשָֽׂה
26 ~ And they took the young bull that was given to them, and they did, and they called in the name of Baal, from the morning and to the midday, saying, Baal, answer us. And there was no voice, and there was no answer.
And they limped on the altar that was made.
3e 4C 50
12
וַיְהִ֨י בַֽצָּהֳרַ֜יִם וַיְהַתֵּ֧ל בָּהֶ֣ם אֵלִיָּ֗הוּ וַיֹּ֙אמֶר֙ קִרְא֤וּ בְקוֹל־גָּדוֹל֙ כִּֽי־אֱלֹהִ֣ים ה֔וּא כִּ֣י שִׂ֧יחַ וְכִֽי־שִׂ֛יג ל֖וֹ וְכִֽי־דֶ֣רֶךְ ל֑וֹ
אוּלַ֛י יָשֵׁ֥ן ה֖וּא וְיִקָֽץ
27 And it was at midday, and Elijah jested among them, and he said, Call with a great voice for he is God, for he is pondering, or he is overtaking for himself, or journeying for himself.
Perhaps he is asleep and must awaken.
3c 4C 39
8
וַֽיִּקְרְאוּ֙ בְּק֣וֹל גָּד֔וֹל וַיִּתְגֹּֽדְדוּ֙ כְּמִשְׁפָּטָ֔ם בַּחֲרָב֖וֹת וּבָֽרְמָחִ֑ים
עַד־שְׁפָךְ־דָּ֖ם עֲלֵיהֶֽם
28 And they called with a great voice and self-slashed according to their framework, with daggers and with lances,
until they shed their blood on themselves.
3e 4B 24
7
וַֽיְהִי֙ כַּעֲבֹ֣ר הַֽצָּהֳרַ֔יִם וַיִּֽתְנַבְּא֔וּ עַ֖ד לַעֲל֣וֹת הַמִּנְחָ֑ה
וְאֵֽין־ק֥וֹל וְאֵין־עֹנֶ֖ה וְאֵ֥ין קָֽשֶׁב
29 And it was when the midday was passed that they prophesied until the burnt offering of the gift,
and there was no voice, and there was no answer, and there was no one paying attention.
3e 4B 20
11
וַיֹּ֨אמֶר אֵלִיָּ֤הוּ לְכָל־הָעָם֙ גְּשׁ֣וּ אֵלַ֔י וַיִּגְּשׁ֥וּ כָל־הָעָ֖ם אֵלָ֑יו
וַיְרַפֵּ֛א אֶת־מִזְבַּ֥ח יְהוָ֖ה הֶהָרֽוּס
30 And Elijah said to all the people, Come close to me. And all the people came close to him.
And he healed the altar of Yahweh that had been overthrown.

11
וַיִּקַּ֣ח אֵלִיָּ֗הוּ שְׁתֵּ֤ים עֶשְׂרֵה֙ אֲבָנִ֔ים כְּמִסְפַּ֖ר שִׁבְטֵ֣י בְנֵֽי־יַעֲקֹ֑ב
אֲשֶׁר֩ הָיָ֨ה דְבַר־יְהוָ֤ה אֵלָיו֙ לֵאמֹ֔ר יִשְׂרָאֵ֖ל יִהְיֶ֥ה שְׁמֶֽךָ
31 And Elijah took twelve stones according to the count of the bands of the children of Jacob,
to whom happened the word of Yahweh, saying, Israel will be your name.
3e 4C 23
20
וַיִּבְנֶ֧ה אֶת־הָאֲבָנִ֛ים מִזְבֵּ֖חַ בְּשֵׁ֣ם יְהוָ֑ה
וַיַּ֣עַשׂ תְּעָלָ֗ה כְּבֵית֙ סָאתַ֣יִם זֶ֔רַע סָבִ֖יב לַמִּזְבֵּֽחַ
32 And he built with the stones an altar in the name of Yahweh.
And he made a conduit like a house of two bushels of seed, round about for the altar.
3c 4B 15

וַֽיַּעֲרֹ֖ךְ אֶת־הָֽעֵצִ֑ים
וַיְנַתַּח֙ אֶת־הַפָּ֔ר וַיָּ֖שֶׂם עַל־הָעֵצִֽים
33 And he arranged the wood,
and he cut the young bull in pieces that he put on the wood.
3e 4A 8
13
וַיֹּ֗אמֶר מִלְא֨וּ אַרְבָּעָ֤ה כַדִּים֙ מַ֔יִם וְיִֽצְק֥וּ עַל־הָעֹלָ֖ה וְעַל־הָעֵצִ֑ים
וַיֹּ֤אמֶר שְׁנוּ֙ וַיִּשְׁנ֔וּ וַיֹּ֥אמֶר שַׁלֵּ֖שׁוּ וַיְשַׁלֵּֽשׁוּ
34 And he said, Fill four pitchers with water and dump it out on the burnt offering and over the wood.
And he said, Repeat a second time. And they repeated a second time. And he said, A third time. And they did a third time.

And moreover, he filled the conduit with water.

וּבִדְבָרְךָ֣ עָשִׂ֔יתִי אֵ֥ת כָּל־הַדְּבָרִ֖ים הָאֵֽלֶּה
36 And it happened at the burnt offering of the gift, Elijah the prophet made overture, saying, Yahweh the God of Abraham, Yitschaq, and Israel, today let it be known that you are God in Israel and I am your servant.
And in your word I have done all these things.
3c 4B 55

עֲנֵ֤נִי יְהוָה֙ עֲנֵ֔נִי וְיֵֽדְעוּ֙ הָעָ֣ם הַזֶּ֔ה כִּֽי־אַתָּ֥ה יְהוָ֖ה הָאֱלֹהִ֑ים
וְאַתָּ֛ה הֲסִבֹּ֥תָ אֶת־לִבָּ֖ם אֲחֹרַנִּֽית
37 Answer me,Yahweh, answer me. And this people will know that you, Yahweh, are God.
And you, you turn round their heart backward.

וְאֶת־הַמַּ֥יִם אֲשֶׁר־בַּתְּעָלָ֖ה לִחֵֽכָה
