2 Chronicles 19:1-3


19:1 When King Jehoshaphat of Judah returned home safely to Jerusalem, 1  19:2 the prophet 2  Jehu son of Hanani confronted him; 3  he said to King Jehoshaphat, “Is it right to help the wicked and be an ally of those who oppose the Lord? 4  Because you have done this the Lord is angry with you! 5  19:3 Nevertheless you have done some good things; 6  you removed 7  the Asherah poles from the land and you were determined to follow the Lord.” 8
