Jehoshaphat said, "Don't let the king say so." NIV 8 The king of Israel answered Jehoshaphat, “There is still one prophet through whom we can inquire of the LORD, but I hate him because he never prophesies anything good about me, but always bad. He is Micaiah son of Imlah.” “The king should not say such a thing,” Jehoshaphat replied. WEB 9 Then the king of Israel called an officer, and said, Get quickly Micaiah the son of Imlah.

NIV 13 The messenger who had gone to summon Micaiah said to him, “Look, the other prophets without exception are predicting success for the king. Let your word agree with theirs, and speak favorably.” WEB 14 Micaiah said, As Yahweh lives, what Yahweh says to me, that will I speak.

He answered him, Go up and prosper; and Yahweh will deliver it into the hand of the king.
