18:1 Now Jehoshaphat [H3092] had riches [H6239] and honour [H3519] in abundance [H7230] , and joined affinity [H2859] with Ahab [H256] .

18:2 And after [H7093] [certain] years [H8141] he went down [H3381] to Ahab [H256] to Samaria [H8111] . And Ahab [H256] killed [H2076] sheep [H6629] and oxen [H1241] for him in abundance [H7230] , and for the people [H5971] that [he had] with him, and persuaded [H5496] him to go up [H5927] [with him] to Ramothgilead [H7433] [H1568] .(after: Heb. at the end of years)

18:3 And Ahab [H256] king [H4428] of Israel [H3478] said [H559] unto Jehoshaphat [H3092] king [H4428] of Judah [H3063] , Wilt thou go [H3212] with me to Ramothgilead [H7433] [H1568] ? And he answered [H559] him, I [am] as thou [art], and my people [H5971] as thy people [H5971] ; and [we will be] with thee in the war [H4421] .

18:4 And Jehoshaphat [H3092] said [H559] unto the king [H4428] of Israel [H3478] , Enquire [H1875] , I pray thee, at the word [H1697] of the LORD [H3068] to day [H3117] .

18:5 Therefore the king [H4428] of Israel [H3478] gathered together [H6908] of prophets [H5030] four [H702] hundred [H3967] men [H376] , and said [H559] unto them, Shall we go [H3212] to Ramothgilead [H7433] [H1568] to battle [H4421] , or shall I forbear [H2308] ? And they said [H559] , Go up [H5927] ; for God [H430] will deliver [H5414] [it] into the king's [H4428] hand [H3027] .

18:6 But Jehoshaphat [H3092] said [H559] , [Is there] not here a prophet [H5030] of the LORD [H3068] besides, that we might enquire [H1875] of him?(besides: Heb. yet, or, more)

18:7 And the king [H4428] of Israel [H3478] said [H559] unto Jehoshaphat [H3092] , [There is] yet one [H259] man [H376] , by whom we may enquire [H1875] of the LORD [H3068] : but I hate [H8130] him; for he never prophesied [H5012] good [H2896] unto me, but always [H3117] evil [H7451] : the same [is] Micaiah [H4321] the son [H1121] of Imla [H3229] . And Jehoshaphat [H3092] said [H559] , Let not the king [H4428] say [H559] so.

18:8 And the king [H4428] of Israel [H3478] called [H7121] for one [H259] [of his] officers [H5631] , and said [H559] , Fetch quickly [H4116] Micaiah [H4319] the son [H1121] of Imla [H3229] .(officers: or, eunuchs)(Fetch: Heb. Hasten)

18:9 And the king [H4428] of Israel [H3478] and Jehoshaphat [H3092] king [H4428] of Judah [H3063] sat [H3427] either [H376] of them on his throne [H3678] , clothed [H3847] in [their] robes [H899] , and they sat [H3427] in a void place [H1637] at the entering in [H6607] of the gate [H8179] of Samaria [H8111] ; and all the prophets [H5030] prophesied [H5012] before [H6440] them.(void: or, floor)

18:10 And Zedekiah [H6667] the son [H1121] of Chenaanah [H3668] had made [H6213] him horns [H7161] of iron [H1270] , and said [H559] , Thus saith [H559] the LORD [H3068] , With these thou shalt push [H5055] Syria [H758] until they be consumed [H3615] .(they: Heb. thou consume them)

18:11 And all the prophets [H5030] prophesied [H5012] so, saying [H559] , Go up [H5927] to Ramothgilead [H7433] [H1568] , and prosper [H6743] : for the LORD [H3068] shall deliver [H5414] [it] into the hand [H3027] of the king [H4428] .

18:12 And the messenger [H4397] that went [H1980] to call [H7121] Micaiah [H4321] spake [H1696] to him, saying [H559] , Behold, the words [H1697] of the prophets [H5030] [declare] good [H2896] to the king [H4428] with one [H259] assent [H6310] ; let thy word [H1697] therefore, I pray thee, be like one [H259] of theirs, and speak [H1696] thou good [H2896] .(with: Heb. with one mouth)

18:13 And Micaiah [H4321] said [H559] , [As] the LORD [H3068] liveth [H2416] , even what my God [H430] saith [H559] , that will I speak [H1696] .

18:14 And when he was come [H935] to the king [H4428] , the king [H4428] said [H559] unto him, Micaiah [H4318] , shall we go [H3212] to Ramothgilead [H7433] [H1568] to battle [H4421] , or shall I forbear [H2308] ? And he said [H559] , Go ye up [H5927] , and prosper [H6743] , and they shall be delivered [H5414] into your hand [H3027] .

18:15 And the king [H4428] said [H559] to him, How many times [H6471] shall I adjure [H7650] thee that thou say [H1696] nothing but the truth [H571] to me in the name [H8034] of the LORD [H3068] ?

18:16 Then he said [H559] , I did see [H7200] all Israel [H3478] scattered [H6327] upon the mountains [H2022] , as sheep [H6629] that have no shepherd [H7462] : and the LORD [H3068] said [H559] , These have no master [H113] ; let them return [H7725] [therefore] every man [H376] to his house [H1004] in peace [H7965] .

18:17 And the king [H4428] of Israel [H3478] said [H559] to Jehoshaphat [H3092] , Did I not tell [H559] thee [that] he would not prophesy [H5012] good [H2896] unto me, but evil [H7451] ?(but evil: or, but for evil)

18:18 Again he said [H559] , Therefore hear [H8085] the word [H1697] of the LORD [H3068] ; I saw [H7200] the LORD [H3068] sitting [H3427] upon his throne [H3678] , and all the host [H6635] of heaven [H8064] standing [H5975] on his right hand [H3225] and [on] his left [H8040] .

18:19 And the LORD [H3068] said [H559] , Who shall entice [H6601] Ahab [H256] king [H4428] of Israel [H3478] , that he may go up [H5927] and fall [H5307] at Ramothgilead [H7433] [H1568] ? And one spake [H559] saying [H559] after this manner [H3602] , and another saying [H559] after that manner [H3602] .

18:20 Then there came out [H3318] a spirit [H7307] , and stood [H5975] before [H6440] the LORD [H3068] , and said [H559] , I will entice [H6601] him. And the LORD [H3068] said [H559] unto him, Wherewith?

18:21 And he said [H559] , I will go out [H3318] , and be a lying [H8267] spirit [H7307] in the mouth [H6310] of all his prophets [H5030] . And [the LORD] said [H559] , Thou shalt entice [H6601] [him], and thou shalt also prevail [H3201] : go out [H3318] , and do [H6213] [even] so.

18:22 Now therefore, behold, the LORD [H3068] hath put [H5414] a lying [H8267] spirit [H7307] in the mouth [H6310] of these thy prophets [H5030] , and the LORD [H3068] hath spoken [H1696] evil [H7451] against thee.

18:23 Then Zedekiah [H6667] the son [H1121] of Chenaanah [H3668] came near [H5066] , and smote [H5221] Micaiah [H4321] upon the cheek [H3895] , and said [H559] , Which [H335] way [H1870] went [H5674] the Spirit [H7307] of the LORD [H3068] from me to speak [H1696] unto thee?

18:24 And Micaiah [H4321] said [H559] , Behold, thou shalt see [H7200] on that day [H3117] when thou shalt go [H935] into an inner [H2315] chamber [H2315] to hide [H2244] thyself.(into: or, from chamber to chamber: Heb. a chamber in a chamber)

18:25 Then the king [H4428] of Israel [H3478] said [H559] , Take [H3947] ye Micaiah [H4321] , and carry him back [H7725] to Amon [H526] the governor [H8269] of the city [H5892] , and to Joash [H3101] the king's [H4428] son [H1121] ;

18:26 And say [H559] , Thus saith [H559] the king [H4428] , Put [H7760] this [fellow] in the prison [H1004] [H3608] , and feed [H398] him with bread [H3899] of affliction [H3906] and with water [H4325] of affliction [H3906] , until I return [H7725] in peace [H7965] .

18:27 And Micaiah [H4321] said [H559] , If thou certainly [H7725] return [H7725] in peace [H7965] , [then] hath not the LORD [H3068] spoken [H1696] by me. And he said [H559] , Hearken [H8085] , all ye people [H5971] .

18:28 So the king [H4428] of Israel [H3478] and Jehoshaphat [H3092] the king [H4428] of Judah [H3063] went up [H5927] to Ramothgilead [H7433] [H1568] .

18:29 And the king [H4428] of Israel [H3478] said [H559] unto Jehoshaphat [H3092] , I will disguise [H2664] myself, and will go [H935] to the battle [H4421] ; but put [H3847] thou on thy robes [H899] . So the king [H4428] of Israel [H3478] disguised [H2664] himself; and they went [H935] to the battle [H4421] .

18:30 Now the king [H4428] of Syria [H758] had commanded [H6680] the captains [H8269] of the chariots [H7393] that [were] with him, saying [H559] , Fight [H3898] ye not with small [H6996] or great [H1419] , save only with the king [H4428] of Israel [H3478] .

18:31 And it came to pass, when the captains [H8269] of the chariots [H7393] saw [H7200] Jehoshaphat [H3092] , that they said [H559] , It [is] the king [H4428] of Israel [H3478] . Therefore they compassed about [H5437] him to fight [H3898] : but Jehoshaphat [H3092] cried out [H2199] , and the LORD [H3068] helped [H5826] him; and God [H430] moved [H5496] them [to depart] from him.

18:32 For it came to pass, that, when the captains [H8269] of the chariots [H7393] perceived [H7200] that it was not the king [H4428] of Israel [H3478] , they turned back again [H7725] from pursuing [H310] him.(from: Heb. from after him)

18:33 And a [certain] man drew [H4900] a bow [H7198] at a venture [H8537] , and smote [H5221] the king [H4428] of Israel [H3478] between the joints [H1694] of the harness [H8302] : therefore he said [H559] to his chariot [H7395] man [H376] , Turn [H2015] thine hand [H3027] , that thou mayest carry me out [H3318] of the host [H4264] ; for I am wounded [H2470] .(at a venture: Heb. in his simplicity)(between: Heb. between the joints and between the breastplate)(wounded: Heb. made sick)

18:34 And the battle [H4421] increased [H5927] that day [H3117] : howbeit the king [H4428] of Israel [H3478] stayed [himself] up [H5975] in [his] chariot [H4818] against [H5227] the Syrians [H758] until the even [H6153] : and about the time [H6256] of the sun [H8121] going down [H935] he died [H4191] .
