2 Chronicles 19
King James Bible: Purple Letter Edition
1And Jehoshaphat, the king of Judah, returned to his house in peace to Jerusalem. 2And Jehu, the son of Hanani, the seer, went out to meet him, and said to King Jehoshaphat, Shouldest thou help the wicked {ungodly}, and love them who hate the LORD? Therefore, there is wrath upon thee from before the LORD. 3Nevertheless, there are good things found in thee, in that thou hast taken away the idols {groves} out of the land, and hast prepared thine heart to seek God. 4And Jehoshaphat dwelt at Jerusalem; and he went out again through the people from Beersheba to Mount Ephraim, and brought them back unto the LORD God of their fathers. 5And he set judges in the land throughout all the fortified {fenced} cities of Judah, city by city, 6And said to the judges, Take heed what ye do; for ye judge not for man, but for the LORD, Who is with you in the judgment. 7Wherefore, now, let the fear of the LORD be upon you; take heed and do it; for there is no iniquity with the LORD our God, nor respect of persons, nor taking of bribes {gifts}. 8Moreover, in Jerusalem did Jehoshaphat set of the Levites, and of the priests, and of the heads {chief} of the fathers of Israel, for the judgment of the LORD, and for controversies, when they returned to Jerusalem. 9And he charged them, saying, Thus shall ye do in the fear of the LORD, faithfully, and with a perfect heart. 10And whatever cause shall come to you of your brethren who dwell in their cities, between blood and blood, between law and commandment, statutes and ordinances {judgments}, ye shall even warn them, that they trespass not against the LORD, and so wrath come upon you, and upon your brethren; this do, and ye shall not trespass. 11And, behold, Amariah, the chief priest, is over you in all matters of the LORD; and Zebadiah, the son of Ishmael, the ruler of the house of Judah, for all the king's matters; also, the Levites shall be officers before you. Deal {part} courageously, and the LORD shall be with the good.
