As Obadiah was on the road, behold, Elijah met him! And Obadiah recognized him and fell on his face and said, “Is it you, my lord Elijah?” Bible see other translations

“Obadiah.” The Hebrew text reads “he,” but that could be confusing in this sentence, so we substituted the name for the pronoun.

“Is it you, my lord Elijah?” This is a rhetorical question. Obadiah recognized Elijah. This is more like, “Wow! Is it really you, here now? Now what?”
