2 Chronicles Chapter 19

1Then Jehoshaphat king of Judah returned to his house in Jerusalem in peace. 2And Jehu the son of Hanani the seer went out to confront him, and he said to King Jehoshaphat, “Is it right to help the wicked, and will you love those who hate the Lord? And for this reason there is anger from the Lord on you. 3But some good things have been found in you, for you have burned the phallic parks in the land, and you have prepared your heart to seek God.” 4And Jehoshaphat lived in Jerusalem, and he went out again among the people from Beer-sheba to Mount Ephraim, and he brought them back to the Lord God of their fathers. 5And he set up judges in the land – in all the fortified cities of Judah – city by city. 6And he said to the judges, “Watch what you do, for you will not be judging for man, but for the Lord, and may he be with you in the matter of judgment. 7And now, may the fear of the Lord be upon you. Be on your guard and act, for with the Lord our God there is no injustice or partiality or taking bribes.” 8Also in Jerusalem Jehoshaphat appointed men from the Levites and the priests, and from the paternal heads of Israel for the Lord's judgment and for disputes. So they returned to Jerusalem. 9And he gave commandment concerning them and said, “This is what you will do in the fear of the Lord, in faith, and with a sincere heart, 10with every dispute which comes before you from your brothers who live in your cities, between blood relations, whether about law or commandment or statutes or judgments: you will warn them not to transgress against the Lord, or wrath will come over you and over your brothers. You shall do this, and you shall not transgress. 11And look, Amariah the high priest is over you in every matter concerning the Lord, as is Zebadiah the son of Ishmael, the leader of the house of Judah, for every matter concerning the king, and as magistrates there are the Levites at your disposal. Take courage and act and may the Lord be with what is good.”
