    King James Bible - 1 Kings 18:29

    And it came to pass, when midday was past, and they prophesied until the time of the offering of the evening sacrifice, that there was neither voice, nor any to answer, nor any that regarded.

    World English Bible

    It was so, when midday was past, that they prophesied until the
    time of the offering of the offering; but there was neither voice, nor any to answer, nor any who regarded.

    Douay-Rheims - 1 Kings 18:29

    And after midday was past, and while they were prophesying, the
    time was come of offering sacrifice, and there was no voice heard, nor did any one answer, nor regard them as they prayed:

    Webster's Bible Translation

    And it came to pass, when mid-day was past, and they prophesied until the
    time of the offering of the evening sacrifice, that there was neither voice, nor any to answer, nor any that regarded.

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 18:29

    Y cuando pasó el mediodía, y ellos aun profetizaron hasta el tiempo del ofrecimiento del sacrificio de la tarde , y no había voz, ni quien respondiese ni escuchase;

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Kings 18:29

    Verse 29. They prophesied] They made incessant prayer and
    supplication; a farther proof that to pray or supplicate is the proper ideal meaning of the word abn naba, which we constantly translate to prophesy, when even all the circumstances of the time and place are against such a meaning. See what is said on the case of Saul among the prophets, in the note on 1 Sam. x. 5.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 29. And it came to pass when midday was past , etc.] And nothing done, no
    fire descended: and they prophesied until the time of the offering of the evening sacrifice ; continued praying to Baal, and singing his praises, but all to no purpose; or they behaved like madmen, as the Targum; thus they went on until it was time to offer the evening sacrifice; so that they had no interruption in their service, and had all the time they could desire to have to importune their god to do the favour for them they requested: that there was neither voice, nor any to answer, nor any that regarded ; no voice was heard that returned them any answer; nor was any answer made by fire, nor any regard shown to their mad gestures, and barbarous actions; and very likely the people also, by this time, paid no regard unto them, perceiving they were not able, by all their cries and methods they took, to obtain an answer.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 21-40 - Many of the people wavered in their
    judgment, and varied in their practice. Elijah called upon them to determine whether Jehovah or Baa was the self-existent, supreme God, the Creator, Governor, and Judge of the world, and to follow him alone. It is dangerous to halt between the service of God and the service of sin, the dominion of Christ and the dominion of our lusts. If Jesus be the only Saviour, let us cleave to him alone for every thing; if the Bible be the world of God, let u reverence and receive the whole of it, and submit our understanding to the Divine teaching it contains. Elijah proposed to bring the matter to a trial. Baal had all the outward advantages, but the event encourage all God's witnesses and advocates never to fear the face of man. The God that answers by fire, let him be God: the atonement was to be mad by sacrifice, before the judgment could be removed in mercy. The God therefore that has power to pardon sin, and to signify it by consumin the sin-offering, must needs be the God that can relieve from the calamity. God never required his worshippers to honour him in the manner of the worshippers of Baal; but the service of the devil, thoug sometimes it pleases and pampers the body, yet, in other things, reall is cruel to it, as in envy and drunkenness. God requires that we mortify our lusts and corruptions; but bodily penances and severitie are no pleasure to him. Who has required these things at your hands? few words uttered in assured faith, and with fervent affection for the glory of God, and love to the souls of men, or thirstings after the Lord's image and his favour, form the effectual, fervent prayer of the righteous man, which availeth much. Elijah sought not his own glory but that of God, for the good of the people. The people are all agreed convinced, and satisfied; Jehovah, he is the God. Some, we hope, ha their hearts turned, but most of them were convinced only, no converted. Blessed are they that have not seen what these saw, yet have believed, and have been wrought upon by it, more than they that saw it.
