War Between Elijah And The Prophets Of Baal

3 And Ahab called Obadiah, who was over the household. (Now Obadiah feared LORD greatly; 4 for it was so, when Jezebel cut off the prophets of LORD, that Obadiah took a hundred prophets, and hid them by fifties in a cave, and fed them with bread and water.) 5 And Ahab said to Obadiah, Go through the land, to all the fountains of water, and to all the brooks. Perhaps we may find grass and save the horses and mules alive, that we not lose all the beasts.
