\\INTRODUCTION TO 1 KINGS 22\\

This chapter relates, that after three years' peace with the king of
Syria, Ahab was inclined to go to war with him, to take Ramothgilead
out of his hands; and he drew in Jehoshaphat, king of Judah, to join
him in it, \\#1Ki 22:1-4\\, but before they went into it, they
took advice, Ahab of his four hundred prophets, which Jehoshaphat not
being satisfied with, a true prophet of the Lord, Micahah, was sent
for, \\#1Ki 22:5-14\\ who, when he came, jeered Ahab with what his
prophets had said to him; intimated that he should be killed, and
explained it to him how he came to be deceived by his prophets,
\\#1Ki 22:15-23\\ upon which he was smitten on the cheek by Zedekiah,
one of the false prophets, and imprisoned by the order of Ahab,
\\#1Ki 22:24-28\\, after which the two kings went to the battle, and
Jehoshaphat was in great danger of his life; but Ahab was wounded,
and died, \\#1Ki 22:29-40\\, and the chapter is concluded with an
account of the reign of Jehoshaphat king of Judah, \\#1Ki 22:41-50\\,
and of Ahaziah king of Israel, \\#1Ki 22:51-53\\.
