2 Chronicles 20:37

2 Chronicles 20:37

Then Eliezer the son of Dodavah of Mareshah
A city in the tribe of Judah, ( Joshua 15:44 )

prophesied against Jehoshaphat, saying, because thou hast joined
thyself with Ahaziah;
an idolatrous prince, with whom he ought to have had no fellowship, even in civil things, it being both a countenancing him, and exposing himself and people to danger:

the Lord hath broken thy works;
the ships built at the joint expense of the two kings, that is, the Lord had determined to break them, and now foretold that he would; the Targum is,

``the Word of the Lord hath destroyed thy works:''

and the ships were broken, that they were not able to go to Tarshish;
(See Gill on 1 Kings 22:48).
