And  now  send,  gather  all  Israel  to me,   to   Mount   Carmel   and   four hundred  and  fifty  of  the  prophets  of Baal,  and  four  hundred  of  the  prophets of  the  Asherah,  who  eat  at  the  table  of Jezebel. 20  And  Ahab  sent  among  all  the sons   of   Israel   and   gathered   the prophets  to  Mount  Carmel. 21  And  Elijah  came  near  all  the people  and  said,  Until  when  are  you limping   over   two   opinions?   If YAHWEH  is  Elohim,  follow  Him;  and if  Baal,  follow  him.  But  the  people  did not  answer  him  a  word.1 22 Then Elijah  said  to  the  people,  I,  I am  the  only  one  of  who  remains  a prophet  of  YAHWEH;  but  the  prophets 1 A striking  challenge  by  Elijah  to  the lukewarm  people.  It  would  be  interesting  to see  what  Elijah  would  say  to  people  today who  read  their  bibles  but  call  Yahweh  by the  names  of  “god”  and  “lord”;  names  of false  pagan  deities. of   Baal  are  four  hundred  and  fifty men. 23  Then  let  them  give  us  two  bulls; and   let   them  choose  one  bull  for themselves,   and  cut  it  in  pieces,  and place  it  on  the  wood,  and  place  no  fire. And  I,  I  will  prepare  the  other  bull  and will  put  it  on  the  wood,  and  I  will  not place  fire. 24  And  you  shall  call  on  the  name  of your  Elohim;  and  I,  I  will  call  on  the name  of  YAHWEH;  and  it  shall  be,  the Elohim  who  answers  by  fire,  he  is  the Elohim.  And  all  the  people  answered and  said,  The  word  is  good. 25  And  Elijah  said  to  the  prophets  of Baal,  Choose  the  one  bull  for  yourself, and  prepare  first,  for  you   are  many; and  you  call  on  the  name  of  your Elohim,  but  place  no  fire. 26  And  they  took  the  bull  that  was given   to   them,   and   prepared,   and called  on  the  name  of  Baal  from  the morning  even  until  noon,  saying,  O Baal,  answer  us!  And  there   was  no sound,  and  no  one  was  answering;  and they  hopped  about  the  altar  that  had been  made. 27  And  it  happened  at  noon,  that Elijah   taunted   them  and  said,  Call with  a  loud  voice,  for  he  is  a  Elohim; for  he  is  meditating,  or  he  is  relieving himself,  or  on  a  journey;  it  may  be  he is  asleep  and  must  be  awakened. 28 And they  called  with  a  loud  voice, and  cut  themselves,  according  to  their custom,  with  swords  and  with  spears until  blood  gushed  out  on  them.2 29  And  it  happened  as  noon  passed by,  that  they  prophesied  madly  until the  offering  up  of  the  offering;  and  no sound   came,   and   no   one   was answering,   and  no  one   was  paying attention. 30  And  Elijah  said  to  all  the  people,

Come  near  to  me.  And  all  the  people came  near  to  him;  and  he  healed  the altar   of   YAHWEH  that   had   been broken  down. 31  And  Elijah  took  twelve  stones, according  to  the  number  of  the  tribes of  the  sons  of  Jacob,  to  whom  the Word  of  YAHWEH came, saying,  Israel shall  be  your  name. 32  And  he  built  an  altar  with  the stones  in  the  name  of  YAHWEH1,  and made  a  trench  as  large  as  two  seahs  of seed  2in  space  around  the  altar. 33  And  he  arranged  the  wood,  and cut  the  bull  in  pieces,  and  placed  it  on the  wood,  and  said,  Fill  four  water  jars of   water  and  pour   it  on  the  burnt offering  and  on  the  wood. 34  And he said,  Do  it  twice;  and  they did  it  twice;  and  he  said,  Do  it  a  third time;  and  they  did  it  a  third  time. 35  And  the  water  went  around  the altar,  and  also  he  filled  the  trench  with water. 36  And it  happened  at  the  offering  of the  sacrifice,  that  Elijah  the  prophet came  near  and  said,  O  YAHWEH,  the Elohim  of  Abraham,  Isaac,  and  Israel, let   it  be  known  today  that  You   are Elohim   in   Israel,   and   I   am  Your servant,   that  by  Your  Word  I  have done  all  these  things. 37  Answer  me,  O  YAHWEH,  answer me;  and  this  people  shall  know  that You   are  YAHWEH  Elohim;  and  You shall  turn  their  hearts  back  again.3 38  And  fire  fell  from  YAHWEH  and consumed  the  burnt  offering,  and  the wood,  and  the  stones,  and  the  dust and  the  water  that  was  in  the  trench  it was  licked  up. 39  And  all  the  people  saw,  and  fell on  their  faces,  and  said,  YAHWEH,  He is  the  Elohim;   YAHWEH,  He   is  the Elohim! 1 King's 18: 19-39
