2 Chronicles 17:3-9 (New Living Translation)

View In My Bible
3 The LORD was with Jehoshaphat because he followed the example of his father's early years a and did not worship the images of Baal. 4 He sought his father's God and obeyed his commands instead of following the practices of the kingdom of Israel. 5 So the LORD established Jehoshaphat's control over the kingdom of Judah. All the people of Judah brought gifts to Jehoshaphat, so he became very wealthy and highly esteemed. 6 He was committed to the ways of the LORD. He knocked down the pagan shrines and destroyed the Asherah poles. 7 In the third year of his reign, Jehoshaphat sent out his officials to teach in all the towns of Judah. These officials included Ben-hail, Obadiah, Zechariah, Nethanel, and Micaiah. 8 He sent Levites along with them, including Shemaiah, Nethaniah, Zebadiah, Asahel, Shemiramoth, Jehonathan, Adonijah, Tobijah, and Tob-adonijah. He also sent out the priests, Elishama and Jehoram. 9 They took copies of the Book of the Law of the LORD and traveled around through all the towns of Judah, teaching the people.
