2 Chron 17:1 Jehoshaphat his son then became king in his place, and made his position over Israel firm.
2 Chron 17:2 He placed troops in all the fortified cities of Judah, and set garrisons in the land of Judah and in the cities of Ephraim which Asa his father had captured.
2 Chron 17:3 The Lord was with Jehoshaphat because he followed the example of his father David's earlier days and did not seek the Baals,
2 Chron 17:4 but sought the God of his father, followed His commandments, and did not act as Israel did.
2 Chron 17:5 So the Lord established the kingdom in his control, and all Judah brought tribute to Jehoshaphat, and he had great riches and honor.
2 Chron 17:6 He took great pride in the ways of the Lord and again removed the high places and the Asherim from Judah.
2 Chron 17:7 Then in the third year of his reign he sent his officials, Ben-hail, Obadiah, Zechariah, Nethanel and Micaiah, to teach in the cities of Judah;
2 Chron 17:8 and with them the Levites, Shemaiah, Nethaniah, Zebadiah, Asahel, Shemiramoth, Jehonathan, Adonijah, Tobijah and Tobadonijah, the Levites; and with them Elishama and Jehoram, the priests.
2 Chron 17:9 They taught in Judah, having the book of the law of the Lord with them; and they went throughout all the cities of Judah and taught among the people.
2 Chron 17:10 Now the dread of the Lord was on all the kingdoms of the lands which were around Judah, so that they did not make war against Jehoshaphat.
2 Chron 17:11 Some of the Philistines brought gifts and silver as tribute to Jehoshaphat; the Arabians also brought him flocks, 7,700 rams and 7,700 male goats.
2 Chron 17:12 So Jehoshaphat grew greater and greater, and he built fortresses and store cities in Judah.
2 Chron 17:13 He had large supplies in the cities of Judah, and warriors, valiant men, in Jerusalem.
2 Chron 17:14 This was their muster according to their fathers' households: of Judah, commanders of thousands, Adnah was the commander, and with him 300,000 valiant warriors;
2 Chron 17:15 and next to him was Johanan the commander, and with him 280,000;
2 Chron 17:16 and next to him Amasiah the son of Zichri, who volunteered for the Lord, and with him 200,000 valiant warriors;
2 Chron 17:17 and of Benjamin, Eliada a valiant warrior, and with him 200,000 armed with bow and shield;
2 Chron 17:18 and next to him Jehozabad, and with him 180,000 equipped for war.

2 Chron 17:5 Therefore the LORD stablished the kingdom in his hand; and all Judah brought to Jehoshaphat presents; and he had riches and honour in abundance. 2 Chron 17:5 So the Lord established the kingdom in his control, and all Judah brought tribute to Jehoshaphat, and he had great riches and honor. 2 Chron 17:5 καὶ κατηύθυνεν κύριος τὴν βασιλείαν ἐν χειρὶ αὐτοῦ καὶ ἔδωκεν πᾶς Ιουδα δῶρα τῷ Ιωσαφατ καὶ ἐγένετο αὐτῷ πλοῦτος καὶ δόξα πολλή
2 Chron 17:6 And his heart was lifted up in the ways of the LORD: moreover he took away the high places and groves out of Judah. 2 Chron 17:6 He took great pride in the ways of the Lord and again removed the high places and the Asherim from Judah. 2 Chron 17:6 καὶ ὑψώθη καρδία αὐτοῦ ἐν ὁδῷ κυρίου καὶ ἔτι ἐξῆρεν τὰ ὑψηλὰ καὶ τὰ ἄλση ἀπὸ τῆς γῆς Ιουδα
