2 Chronicles 20:29-37 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
29 And 1the dread of God was on all the kingdoms of the lands when they heard that the LORD had fought against the enemies of Israel. 30 So the kingdom of Jehoshaphat was at peace, 2for his God gave him rest on all sides. 31 3Now Jehoshaphat reigned over Judah. He was thirty-five years old when he became king, and he reigned in Jerusalem twenty-five years. And his mother's name was Azubah the daughter of Shilhi. 32 He walked in the way of his father Asa and did not depart from it, doing right in the sight of the LORD. 33 4The high places, however, were not removed; 5the people had not yet directed their hearts to the God of their fathers. 34 Now the rest of the acts of Jehoshaphat, first ato last, behold, they are written in the annals of 6Jehu the son of Hanani, which is brecorded in the Book of the Kings of Israel.

Alliance Displeases God

35 7After this Jehoshaphat king of Judah allied himself with Ahaziah king of Israel. He acted wickedly cin so doing. 36 So he allied himself with him to make ships to go 8to Tarshish, and they made the ships in Ezion-geber. 37 Then Eliezer the son of Dodavahu of Mareshah prophesied against Jehoshaphat saying, "Because you have allied yourself with Ahaziah, the LORD has destroyed your works." So the ships were broken and could not go to Tarshish.
