2 Chronicles 17
Jehoshaphat Reigns in Judah1 And [3reigned 1Jehoshaphat 2his son] instead of him. And Jehoshaphat strengthened against Israel. 2 And he put a force in all the [2cities 3of Judah 1fortified], and he put leaders in the land of Judah, and in the cities of Ephraim, which [3first took 1Asa 2his father]. 3 And the lord was with Jehoshaphat, for he went in [3ways 4of David 5his father 1the 2first]; and he did not seek after the idols, 4 but [2the lord 3God 4of his father 1he sought after], and by his commandments he went, and not according to the works of Israel. 5 And the lord straightened the kingdom in his hand; and [3gave 1all 2Judah] gifts to Jehoshaphat, and there became to him [2riches 3and 4glory 1much]. 6 And [2was raised up high 1his heart] in the ways of the lord. And again he removed the high places and the sacred groves from the land of Judah.
Teachings of The LORD Restored7 And in the [2year 1third] of his kingship, he sent his leaders, and the sons of the mighty ones -- Obadiah, and Zechariah, and Nethaneel, and Michaiah to teach in the cities of Judah. 8 And with them the Levites -- Shemaiah, and Nethaniah, and Zebadiah, and Asahel, and Shemiramoth, and Jehonathan, and Adonijah, and Tobijah, and Tob-adonijah the Levites; and with them Elishama and Jehoram, the priests. 9 And they taught in Judah, and with them was the book of the law of the lord. And they went through in the cities of Judah and taught the people. 10 And there came to pass a change of state of the lord upon all the kingdoms of the land round about Judah, and they did not wage war against Jehoshaphat. 11 And from the Philistines they brought to Jehoshaphat gifts and silver. And also the Arabians brought to him rams of the flocks -- seven thousand seven hundred; he-goats -- seven thousand seven hundred. 12 And Jehoshaphat was going in greatness unto height, and he built [2in 3Judah 1places of abode], and [2cities 1fortified]. 13 And [2works 1many] were taking place by him in Judah. And [2men 3warriors 1mighty] being strong were in Jerusalem. 14 And this is the number of them according to the houses of their families. And to Judah as commanders of thousands -- Adnah the ruler, and with him [2sons 1mighty] of power -- three hundred thousand. 15 And after him Johahnan the ruler, and with him two hundred eighty thousand. 16 And after him, Amasiah the son of Zichri, the one feeling eager to the lord; and with him two hundred thousand mighty men of power. 17 And from Benjamin the mighty man of power Eliada, and with him bowmen and men armed with small shields -- two hundred thousand. 18 And after him was Jehozabad, and with him a hundred eighty thousand mighty men of war. 19 These were the ones officiating to the king, outside of the ones whom [3put 1the 2king] in the [2cities 1fortified] in all Judea.
