Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

Obadiah was afraid that the execution of this command might cost him his life, inasmuch as Ahab had sent in search of Elijah "to every kingdom and every nation," - a hyperbole suggested by inward excitement and fear. אין ואמרוּ is to be connected with what follows in spite of the accents: "and if they said he is not here, he took an oath," etc.
