2 Chronicles 19:5 In-Context

3 But you're not all bad - you made a clean sweep of the polluting sex-and-religion shrines; and you were single-minded in seeking God."
4 Jehoshaphat kept his residence in Jerusalem but made a regular round of visits among the people, from Beersheba in the south to Mount Ephraim in the north, urging them to return to God, the God of their ancestors.
5 And he was diligent in appointing judges in the land - each of the fortress cities had its judge.
6 He charged the judges: "This is serious work; do it carefully. You are not merely judging between men and women; these are God's judgments that you are passing on.
7 Live in the fear of God - be most careful, for God hates dishonesty, partiality, and bribery."
