And the fear of God came on all the kingdoms of the countries when they heard that the LORD had fought against the enemies of Israel.
So the realm of Jehosh'aphat was quiet, for his God gave him rest round about.
Thus Jehosh'aphat reigned over Judah. He was thirty-five years old when he began to reign, and he reigned twenty-five years in Jerusalem. His mother's name was Azu'bah the daughter of Shilhi.
He walked in the way of Asa his father and did not turn aside from it; he did what was right in the sight of the LORD.
The high places, however, were not taken away; the people had not yet set their hearts upon the God of their fathers.
Now the rest of the acts of Jehosh'aphat, from first to last, are written in the chronicles of Jehu the son of Hana'ni, which are recorded in the Book of the Kings of Israel.
After this Jehosh'aphat king of Judah joined with Ahazi'ah king of Israel, who did wickedly.
He joined him in building ships to go to Tarshish, and they built the ships in E'zion-ge'ber.
Then Elie'zer the son of Do-dav'ahu of Mare'shah prophesied against Jehosh'aphat, saying, "Because you have joined with Ahazi'ah, the LORD will destroy what you have made." And the ships were wrecked and were not able to go to Tarshish.
