King James Version2 Chronicles19

2 Chronicles

1 And Je­hoshaphat the king of Ju­dah re­turned to his house in peace to Jerusalem. 2 And Jehu the son of Hanani the seer went out to meet him, and said to king Je­hoshaphat, Shouldest thou help the un­god­ly, and love them that hate the LORD? there­fore is wrath upon thee from be­fore the LORD. 3 Nev­er­the­less there are good things found in thee, in that thou hast tak­en away the groves out of the land, and hast pre­pared thine heart to seek God. 4 And 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. 5 And he set judges in the land through­out all the fenced cities of Ju­dah, city by city, 6 And 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. 7 Where­fore 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 gifts. 8 More­over in Jerusalem did Je­hoshaphat set of the Levites, and of the priests, and of the chief of the fa­thers of Is­rael, for the judg­ment of the LORD, and for con­tro­ver­sies, when they re­turned to Jerusalem. 9 And he charged them, say­ing, Thus shall ye do in the fear of the LORD, faith­ful­ly, and with a per­fect heart. 10 And what cause so­ev­er shall come to you of your brethren that dwell in their cities, be­tween blood and blood, be­tween law and com­mand­ment, statutes and 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. 11 And, 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 coura­geous­ly, and the LORD shall be with the good.
