[Evil king] Ahab orders ObadiYah {Obey-YAH}, โ€œGo search the [whole] land [of northern Israel].
Find all [running] water-springs, and all brooks.
Maybe we can find grass to save the lives of [our] horses and mules, so we won't lose all our animals.โ€

Destroying the Earth

Note: Today's worldwide famine and drought result from ignoring the Hebrew Law.
