It's like two Old West gunfighters in the middle of the street at high noon. When one says, "Draw," their dispute is about to be decided. The biblical counterpart of the "shootout" is Elijah against the pagan prophets on Mount Carmel. One party will be victorious; the other, dead. Things had gone from bad to worse in the northern kingdom, one evil king after another had practiced and promoted idolatry, and God sent a drought that had lasted 3 years. This standoff had to end.
