Jehoshaphat Allies with Ahab

18:1 Jehoshaphat was very wealthy and greatly respected. He made an alliance by marriage with Ahab, 18:2 and after several years 1  went down to visit 2  Ahab in Samaria. 3  Ahab slaughtered many sheep and cattle to honor Jehoshaphat and those who came with him. 4  He persuaded him to join in an attack 5  against Ramoth Gilead. 18:3 King Ahab of Israel said to Jehoshaphat, “Will you go with me to attack Ramoth Gilead?” Jehoshaphat replied to the king of Israel, “I will support you; my army is at your disposal and will support you in battle.” 6
