Therefore the Lord stablished the kingdom in his hand
Piety is the best prop of government; the throne is best supported and established by truth, righteousness, and mercy; by the exercise of these Jehoshaphat was settled in his kingdom, and had a place in the hearts of his people:
and all Judah brought to Jehoshaphat presents;
being well affected to him, as well as it was usual so to do at a prince's accession to the throne, see ( 1 Samuel 10:27 )
and he had riches and honour in abundance;
through the presents his subjects brought him, and the respect they showed him.
