Introduction

\\INTRODUCTION TO 1 KINGS 18\\

In this chapter Elijah has an order from the Lord to show himself to
Ahab, who, going first, and meeting with a servant of his, Obadiah,
charges him to tell his master where he was, that he might meet him,
\\#1Ki 18:1-16\\, and, upon meeting him, desires that all Israel, and
the prophets of Baal, might be convened, which was accordingly done,
\\#1Ki 18:17-20\\, when he expostulated with the people of Israel for
their idolatry, mocked and confounded the prophets of Baal, and gave
the strongest proofs, to the conviction of the people, that Jehovah
is the true God, \\#1Ki 18:21-39\\, on which all the prophets of Baal
were slain, \\#1Ki 18:40\\, and rain in great abundance was given at
the prayer of the prophet, \\#1Ki 18:41-46\\.
