014:017:001
And Jehoshaphat his son reigned in his stead,
and strengthened himself against Israel.


014:017:002
And he placed forces in all the fenced cities of Judah,
and set garrisons in the land of Judah,
and in the cities of Ephraim,
which Asa his father had taken.


014:017:003
And the LORD was with Jehoshaphat,
because he walked in the first ways of his father David,
and sought not unto Baalim;


014:017:004
But sought to the Lord God of his father,
and walked in his commandments,
and not after the doings of Israel.


014:017:005
Therefore the LORD stablished the kingdom in his hand;
and all Judah brought to Jehoshaphat presents;
and he had riches and honour in abundance.


014:017:006
And his heart was lifted up in the ways of the LORD:
moreover he took away the high places and groves out of Judah.


014:017:007
Also in the third year of his reign he sent to his princes,
even to Benhail,
and to Obadiah,
and to Zechariah,
and to Nethaneel,
and to Michaiah,
to teach in the cities of Judah.


014:017:008
And with them he sent Levites,
even Shemaiah,
and Nethaniah,
and Zebadiah,
and Asahel,
and Shemiramoth,
and Jehonathan,
and Adonijah,
and Tobijah,
and Tobadonijah,
Levites;
and with them Elishama and Jehoram,
priests.


014:017:009
And they taught in Judah,
and had the book of the law of the LORD with them,
and went about throughout all the cities of Judah,
and taught the people.


014:017:010
And the fear of the LORD fell upon all the kingdoms of the lands that were round about Judah,
so that they made no war against Jehoshaphat.


014:017:011
Also some of the Philistines brought Jehoshaphat presents,
and tribute silver;
and the Arabians brought him flocks,
seven thousand and seven hundred rams,
and seven thousand and seven hundred he goats.


014:017:012
And Jehoshaphat waxed great exceedingly;
and he built in Judah castles,
and cities of store.


014:017:013
And he had much business in the cities of Judah:
and the men of war,
mighty men of valour,
were in Jerusalem.


014:017:014
And these are the numbers of them according to the house of their fathers:
Of Judah,
the captains of thousands;
Adnah the chief,
and with him mighty men of valour three hundred thousand.


014:017:015
And next to him was Jehohanan the captain,
and with him two hundred and fourscore thousand.


014:017:016
And next him was Amasiah the son of Zichri,
who willingly offered himself unto the LORD;
and with him two hundred thousand mighty men of valour.


014:017:017
And of Benjamin;
Eliada a mighty man of valour,
and with him armed men with bow and shield two hundred thousand.


014:017:018
And next him was Jehozabad,
and with him an hundred and fourscore thousand ready prepared for the war.


014:017:019
These waited on the king,
beside those whom the king put in the fenced cities throughout all Judah.
