2 Chronicles 18:15 In-Context

13 But Micaiah said, "As sure as God lives, what God says, I'll say."
14 With Micaiah before him, the king asked him, "So, Micaiah - do we attack Ramoth Gilead? Or do we hold back?" "Go ahead," he said, "an easy victory! God's gift to the king."
15 "Not so fast," said the king. "How many times have I made you promise under oath to tell me the truth and nothing but the truth?"
16 "All right," said Micaiah, "since you insist . . . I saw all of Israel scattered over the hills, sheep with no shepherd. Then God spoke, 'These poor people have no one to tell them what to do. Let them go home and do the best they can for themselves.'"
17 The king of Israel turned to Jehoshaphat, "See! What did I tell you? He never has a good word for me from God, only doom."
