[ I will again be working through the Scriptures from Genesis to Revelation. I will be adding links, resources, images, and the like, upgrading the former work-through which began with the 2013-10-12 posting which can be found, along with the full Genesis to Revelation postings, in the Archive Page. Postings will be at midnight Eastern Time, as I am able. However, no chapters will be skipped, even though a posting may be late. And all postings will be housed in the Archive Page. ]

     Explanation: 2 Chronicles 19 describes the process by which Jehoshaphat set up a court system in Judah.

[Traditional Patriarchal Timeline. Judges. Judges Period Chronology. Kings of Judah and Israel #1. Kings of Judah and Israel #2].

     When Jehoshaphat, King of Judah (870-848), returned to Jerusalem from the battle described in the previous chapter, Jehu, the son of Hanani the seer, met him and chided him for helping the ungodly (Ahab -- 874-853 B.C.) in a war which the LORD told them not to fight. Jehu warned Jehoshaphat that wrath from God was coming because of this sin. It came in the form of an invading force from Moab, Ammon, and their allies (2 Chronicles 20:1) . But Jehu commended him for removing the idol groves from the land and for preparing his heart to seek God (1-3).
     So Jehoshaphat went again among the people and turned them back to God. Previously he had sent teachers to instruct them in the Law of the Lord. This time he sent judges who set up a court system throughout the land. And he warned the judges to fear the LORD and deal justly (4-7).
     He charged them to warn the people not to trespass against the LORD lest wrath come upon them. He told them to be courageous, and the LORD would be with the good (8-11).
     As Jehoshaphat began to institute judicial reforms in Judah (c. 853 B.C.), Ahaziah (853-852 B.C.) ascended to the throne of Israel after the death of his father Ahab (874-853 B.C.); and, like his father, he was wicked and idolatrous; he also walked in the sins of his forefather, Jeroboam I (931-910 B.C.), the Son of Nebat.

PLEASE NOTE: Use the resources on this and other sites thoughtfully, particularly the commentaries and encyclopedias. I have attempted to list conservative, scholarly resources. However, some providers use liberal or liberal-influenced commentaries such as the Cambridge Bible for Schools and Colleges (in Bible Hub). Such commentaries are undoubtedly included by the provider for the wealth of useful information and comments which they provide. By consulting several commentaries, it should be fairly easy to sort out the wheat from the chaff. If, however, you would like personal assistance, write to me at AD LIB ARTS EMAIL.

     1 And Jehoshaphat the king of Judah returned to his house in peace to Jerusalem. 2 And Jehu the son of Hanani the seer went out to meet him [unto his face], and said to king Jehoshaphat, Shouldest thou help the ungodly, and love them that hate the LORD? therefore is wrath upon thee from before the LORD. 3 Nevertheless there are good things found in thee, in that thou hast taken away the groves out of the land, and hast prepared thine heart to seek God.
     4 And Jehoshaphat dwelt at Jerusalem: and he went out again through the people from Beersheba to mount Ephraim, and bought them back unto the LORD God of their fathers. 5 And he set judges in the land throughout all the fenced cities of Judah, city by city, 6 And said to the judges, Take heed what ye do: for ye judge not for man, but for the LORD, who is with you in the judgment [in a word of judgment]. 7 Wherefore now let the fear of the LORD be upon you; take heed and do it: for there is no iniquity with the LORD our God, nor respect of persons, nor taking of gifts.
     8 Moreover in Jerusalem did Jehoshaphat set of the Levites, and of the priests, and of the chief of the fathers of Israel, for the judgment of the LORD, and for controversies, when they returned to Jerusalem. 9 And he charged them, saying, Thus shall ye do in the fear of the LORD, faithfully, and with a perfect heart. 10 And what cause soever [and all contention which] shall come to you of your brethren that dwell in their cities, between blood and blood, between law and commandment, statutes and judgments, ye shall even warn them that they trespass not against the LORD, and so wrath come upon you, and upon your brethren: this do, and ye shall not trespass. 11 And, behold, Amariah the chief priest is over you in all matters of the LORD; and Zebadiah the son of Ishmael, the ruler of the house of Judah, for all the king's matters: also the Levites shall be officers before you. Deal courageously, and the LORD shall be with the good.
