1 Kings 18
In the extremity of the famine Elijah is sent to meet Ahab. Ahab and Obadiah go different ways in search of pasture for the cattle. Elijah meeteth Obadiah, and sendeth him to call Ahab. Ahab, after receiving a reproof, by Elijah's direction gathereth together all the prophets of Baal. Elijah proposeth to decide by a sign from heaven between the Lord and Baal. Baal's prophets invoke him in vain. Elijah praying is answered by fire from heaven: the people own the Lord to be God: Baal's prophets are slain. Elijah giveth Ahab notice of rain, which he obtaineth by prayer, and runneth before Ahab to Jezreel.
