His Good Reign

3 The LORD was with Jehoshaphat because he Ifollowed the example of his father David’s earlier days and did not seek the Baals, 4 but sought the God of his father, Ifollowed His commandments, aand did not act as Israel did. 5 So the LORD established the kingdom in his Icontrol, and all Judah brought tribute to Jehoshaphat, and ahe had great riches and honor. 6 IHe took great pride in the ways of the LORD and again aremoved the high places and the Asherim from Judah.

Jehoshaphat, succeeding Asa, reigneth well, and prospereth.

1 ¶ And Jehoshaphat his son reigned in his stead, and strengthened himself against Israel. 2 And he placed forces in all the fenced cities of Judah, and set garrisons in the land of Judah, and in the cities of Ephraim, which Asa his father had taken. 3 And the LORD was with Jehoshaphat, because he walked in the first ways of his father David, and sought not unto Baalim; 4 But sought to the [LORD] God of his father, and walked in his commandments, and not after the doings of Israel. 5 Therefore the LORD stablished the kingdom in his hand; and all Judah brought to Jehoshaphat presents; and he had riches and honour in abundance. 6 And his heart was lifted up in the ways of the LORD: moreover he took away the high places and groves out of Judah.
