2 Chronicles Chapter 17

1And Jehoshaphat his son reigned in his place, and he strengthened himself against Israel. 2And he put forces in all the fortified cities of Judah, and he put garrisons in the land of Judah and in the cities of Ephraim which Asa his father had captured. 3And the Lord was with Jehoshaphat, because he walked in the first ways of David his father, and did not seek the Baalim, 4for he sought the God of his father, and he walked in his commandments, and not like the practice of Israel. 5And the Lord established the kingdom in his hand, and all Judah gave gifts to Jehoshaphat, and he had wealth and honour in abundance. 6And his heart was exuberant in the ways of the Lord, and furthermore he removed the idolatrous raised sites and the phallic parks from Judah. 7And in the third year of his reign, he sent teachers to his senior officials, to Ben-hail and to Obadiah and to Zechariah and to Nethaneel and to Micaiah, to teach in the cities of Judah. 8And with them were the Levites, Shemaiah and Nethaniah and Zebadiah and Asahel and Shemiramoth and Jonathan and Adonijah and Tobijah and Tob-adonijah – the Levites – and with them were Elishama and Jehoram the priests. 9And they taught in Judah, and with them was the book of the law of the Lord. And they went round all the cities of Judah, and taught among the people. 10And the fear of the Lord came over all the kingdoms of the countries around Judah, and they did not fight against Jehoshaphat. 11And some of the Philistines brought gifts to Jehoshaphat, and silver as tribute. Also, the Arabs brought him sheep – seven thousand seven hundred rams and seven thousand seven hundred he-goats. 12And Jehoshaphat became greater and greater in the extreme, and he built palaces and storehouse cities in Judah. 13And he had a lot of business in the cities of Judah, whereas the men of war – the valiant warriors – were in Jerusalem. 14And these were their offices according to their paternal house. For Judah, the commanders of a thousand were Adnah the commander, with whom were three hundred thousand valiant warriors, 15and next in line to him was Jehohanan the commander, with whom were two hundred and eighty thousand men, 16and next in line to him was Amasiah the son of Zichri, who volunteered for the Lord, with whom were two hundred thousand valiant warriors. 17And from Benjamin was the valiant warrior Eliada, with whom were those armed with bow and buckler – two hundred thousand men, 18and next in line to him was Jehozabad, with whom were one hundred and eighty thousand armed soldiers. 19These were those who served the king, apart from those whom the king put in the fortified cities all over Judah.
