Obadiah Meets Elijah
1 Now it happened° a[after] many° days° that the word° of the LORD° came° to Elijah° in the third° year°, saying°, “Go°, show° yourself to Ahab°, and bI will send° rain° on the face° of the earth°.” 2 So Elijah° went° to show° himself to Ahab°. Now the famine° [was] severe° in Samaria°. 3 Ahab° called° Obadiah° awho° [was] over° the household°. (Now Obadiah° Ibfeared° the LORD° greatly°; 4 for awhen Jezebel° Idestroyed° the prophets° of the LORD°, Obadiah° took° a hundred° prophets° and hid° them by fifties° in a cave°, and bprovided° them with bread° and water°.) 5 Then Ahab° said° to Obadiah°, “Go° through the land° to all° the springs° of water° and to all° the valleys°; perhaps° we will find° grass° and keep° the horses° and mules° alive°, and not Ihave to kill° some° of the cattle°.” 6 So they divided° the land° between them to Isurvey° it; Ahab° went° one° way° by himself° and Obadiah° went° another° way° by himself°.

7 ¶ Now as Obadiah° was on the way°, behold°, Elijah° Imet° him, aand he recognized° him and fell° on his face° and said°, “Is this° you, Elijah° my master°?” 8 He said° to him, “It is I. Go°, say° to your master°, ‘Behold°, Elijah° [is here].’” 9 He said°, “What° Isin° have I committed°, that you are giving° your servant° into the hand° of Ahab° to put° me to death°? 10 aAs the LORD° your God° lives°, there° is no° nation° or kingdom° where°° my master° has not sent° to search° for you; and when they said°, ‘He is not [here],’ he made the kingdom° or nation° swear° that they could not find° you. 11 And now° you are saying°, ‘Go°, say° to your master°, “Behold°, Elijah° [is here].”’ 12 It will come° about when I leave°° you athat the Spirit° of the LORD° will carry° you where°° I do not know°; so when I come° and tell° Ahab° and he cannot° find° you, he will kill° me, although [I] your servant° have Ifeared° the LORD° from my youth°. 13 aHas it not been told° to my master° what° I did° when Jezebel° killed° the prophets° of the LORD°, that I hid° Ia hundred° prophets° of the LORD° by fifties° in a cave°, and provided° them with bread° and water°? 14 And now° you are saying°, ‘Go°, say° to your master°, “Behold°, Elijah° [is here]”’; he will then kill° me.” 15 Elijah° said°, “aAs the LORD° of hosts° lives°, before° whom° I stand°, I will surely° show° myself to him today°.” 16 So Obadiah° went° to meet° Ahab° and told° him; and Ahab° went° to meet° Elijah°.

In the extremity of famine Elijah, sent to Ahab, meeteth good Obadiah.
1 ¶ And it came to pass² [after] manyº days,º that the wordº of the LORDº came² to² Elijahº in the thirdº year,º saying,ºª Go,¹ª² shew¹ª thyself² unto² Ahab;º and I will sendºª rainº uponº² the earth.º 2 And Elijahº went¹ª² to shew¹ª himself² unto² Ahab.º And [there was] a soreº famineº in Samaria.º 3 And Ahabº calledºª² Obadiah,º which² [was] the governor² of [his] house.º (Now Obadiahº feared¹²²² the LORDº greatly:º 4 For it was² [so], when Jezebelº cut offºª² the prophetsº of the LORD,º that Obadiahº tookºª an hundredº prophets,º and hidºª them by fiftyºº in a cave,º and fedºª them with breadº and water.)º 5 And Ahabº saidºª unto² Obadiah,º Go¹ª² into the land,º unto² all² fountainsº of water,º and unto² all² brooks:º peradventureº we may findºª grassº to save¹ª the horses¹ and mules¹ alive,ºª²² that we loseºª not² all the beasts.º² 6 So they dividedºª² the landº between them to pass² throughout¹ª it: Ahabº wentºª oneº wayº by himself,² and Obadiahº wentºª anotherº wayº by himself.²

Elijah, reproving Ahab, by fire from heaven convinceth Baal's prophets.
17 ¶ And it came to pass,² when Ahabº sawºª² Elijah,º that Ahabº saidºª unto² him, [Art] thou² he that² troublethºª Israel?º 18 And he answered,ºª I have not² troubledºª² Israel;º but²² thou,² and thy father'sº house,º in that ye have forsakenºª² the commandmentsº of the LORD,º and thou hast followedº¹ª² Baalim.º 19 Now² therefore send,ºª [and] gatherºª to² me² all² Israelº unto² mountº Carmel,º and the prophetsº of Baalº fourº hundredº and fifty,º and the prophetsº of the grovesº fourº hundred,º which eatºª at Jezebel'sº table.º 20 So Ahabº sentºª unto all² the childrenº of Israel,º and gathered¹ª the prophets¹ togetherºª²² unto² mountº Carmel.º 21 And Elijahº cameºª unto² all² the people,º and said,ºª How long¹²² haltºª ye² between² twoº opinions?º if² the LORDº [be] God,º follow²² him: but if² Baal,º [then] followº¹ª² him. And the peopleº answeredºª him not² a word.º 22 Then saidºª Elijahº unto² the people,º I,² [even] I only,² remainºª a prophetº of the LORD;º but Baal'sº prophetsº [are] fourº hundredº and fiftyº men.º 23 Let them therefore giveºª us twoº bullocks;º and let them chooseºª oneº bullockº for themselves, and cut it in pieces,ºª and layºª [it] on² wood,º and putºª no² fireº [under]: and I² will dressºª² the otherº bullock,º and layºª [it] on² wood,º and putºª no² fireº [under]: 24 And callºª ye on the nameº of your gods,º and I² will callºª on the nameº of the LORD:º and the Godº that² answerethºª by fire,º let him² be² God.º And all² the peopleº answeredºª and said,ºª It is wellº spoken.º 25 And Elijahº saidºª unto the prophetsº of Baal,º Chooseºª you oneº bullockº for yourselves, and dressºª [it] first;º for² ye² [are] many;º and callºª on the nameº of your gods,º but putºª no² fireº [under]. 26 And they tookºª² the bullockº which² was givenºª them, and they dressedºª [it], and calledºª on the nameº of Baalº from morningº² even until² noon,º saying,ºª O Baal,º hearºª us. But [there was] noº voice,º nor² any that answered.ºª And they leapedºª upon² the altarº which² was made.ºª 27 And it came to pass² at noon,º that Elijahº mockedºª them, and said,ºª Cryºª aloud:ºº for² he² [is] a god;º either² he is talking,º or² he is pursuing,º or² he is in a journey,º [or] peradventureº he² sleepeth,º and must be awaked.ºª 28 And they criedºª aloud,ºº and cut¹ª themselves² after their mannerº with knivesº and lancets,º till² the bloodº gushed outºª upon² them. 29 And it came to pass,² when middayº was past,ºª and they prophesiedºª until² the [time] of the offeringºª of the [evening] sacrifice,º that [there was] neither² voice,º nor² any to answer,ºª nor² any that regarded.º 30 And Elijahº saidºª unto all² the people,º Come nearºª unto² me. And all² the peopleº came nearºª unto² him. And he repairedºª² the altarº of the LORDº [that was] broken down.ºª 31 And Elijahº tookºª twelveºº stones,º according to the numberº of the tribesº of the sonsº of Jacob,º unto² whom² the wordº of the LORDº came,² saying,ºª Israelº shall be² thy name:º 32 And with² the stonesº he builtºª an altarº in the nameº of the LORD:º and he madeºª a trenchº aboutº the altar,º as great as would containº two measuresº of seed.º 33 And he putºª² the woodº in order,¹ª and cutºª² the bullockº in pieces, and laidºª [him] on² the wood,º and said,ºª Fillºª fourº barrelsº with water,º and pourºª [it] on² the burnt sacrifice,º and on² the wood.º 34 And he said,ºª Do [it] the second time.ºª And they did [it] the second time.ºª And he said,ºª Do [it] the third time.ºª And they did [it] the third time.ºª 35 And the waterº ran¹ª² round aboutº the altar;º and he filledºª² the trenchº also² with water.º 36 And it came to pass² at [the time of] the offeringºª of the [evening] sacrifice,º that Elijahº the prophetº came near,ºª and said,ºª LORDº Godº of Abraham,º Isaac,º and of Israel,º let it be knownºª this dayº that² thou² [art] Godº in Israel,º and [that] I² [am] thy servant,º and [that] I have doneºª² all² these² things² at thy word.º 37 Hearºª me, O LORD,º hearºª me, that this² peopleº may knowºª that² thou² [art] the LORDº God,º and [that] thou² hast turnedºª² their heartº back¹ª again.º 38 Then the fireº of the LORDº fell,ºª and consumedºª² the burnt sacrifice,º and the wood,º and the stones,º and the dust,º and licked upºª the waterº that² [was] in the trench.º 39 And when all² the peopleº sawºª [it], they fellºª on² their faces:º and they said,ºª The LORD,º he² [is] the God;º the LORD,º he² [is] the God.º 40 And Elijahº saidºª unto them, Takeºª² the prophetsº of Baal;º let not² oneº of them² escape.ºª And they tookºª them: and Elijahº brought them downºª to² the brookº Kishon,º and slewºª them there.²
