3 Ahab called Obadiah 1who was over the household. (Now Obadiah a2feared the LORD greatly; 4 for 3when Jezebel bdestroyed the prophets of the LORD, Obadiah took a hundred prophets and hid them by fifties in a cave, and 4provided 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 chave to kill some of the cattle." 6 So they divided the land between them to dsurvey it; Ahab went one way by himself and Obadiah went another way by himself. 7 Now as Obadiah was on the way, behold, Elijah emet him, 5and 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 fsin have I committed, that you are giving your servant into the hand of Ahab to put me to death? 10 "6As 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 7that 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 gfeared the LORD from my youth. 13 "8Has it not been told to my master what I did when Jezebel killed the prophets of the LORD, that I hid ha 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, "9As 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.
