“For it was so, when Jezebel cut off the prophets of the LORD, that Obadiah took an hundred prophets, and hid them by fifty in a cave, and fed them with bread and water.)”
King James Version (KJV)
18:4 Prophets - This name is not only given to such as are endowed withan extraordinary spirit of prophecy, but to such ministers as devotedthemselves to the service of God in preaching, praying, and praising God.And fed - With the hazard of his own life, and against the king's command;as wisely considering, that no command of an earthly prince could over - rulethe command of the king of kings. Bread and water - With meat and drink.See how wonderfully God raises up friends for his ministers and people whereone would least expect them!
