2 Chronicles 19:2-3

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

1 tn Or “seer.”

3 tn Heb “and love those who hate the Lord?”

4 tn Heb “and because of this upon you is anger from before the Lord.”
