20:1 It came to pass after this [H310] also, [that] the children [H1121] of Moab [H4124] , and the children [H1121] of Ammon [H5983] , and with them [other] beside the Ammonites [H5984] , came [H935] against Jehoshaphat [H3092] to battle [H4421] .

20:2 Then there came [H935] some that told [H5046] Jehoshaphat [H3092] , saying [H559] , There cometh [H935] a great [H7227] multitude [H1995] against thee from beyond [H5676] the sea [H3220] on this side Syria [H758] ; and, behold, they [be] in Hazazontamar [H2688] , which [is] Engedi [H5872] .

20:3 And Jehoshaphat [H3092] feared [H3372] , and set [H5414] himself [H6440] to seek [H1875] the LORD [H3068] , and proclaimed [H7121] a fast [H6685] throughout [H5921] all Judah [H3063] .(himself: Heb. his face)

20:4 And Judah [H3063] gathered themselves together [H6908] , to ask [H1245] [help] of the LORD [H3068] : even out of all the cities [H5892] of Judah [H3063] they came [H935] to seek [H1245] the LORD [H3068] .

20:5 And Jehoshaphat [H3092] stood [H5975] in the congregation [H6951] of Judah [H3063] and Jerusalem [H3389] , in the house [H1004] of the LORD [H3068] , before [H6440] the new [H2319] court [H2691] ,

20:6 And said [H559] , O LORD [H3068] God [H430] of our fathers [H1] , [art] not thou God [H430] in heaven [H8064] ? and rulest [H4910] [not] thou over all the kingdoms [H4467] of the heathen [H1471] ? and in thine hand [H3027] [is there not] power [H3581] and might [H1369] , so that none is able to withstand [H3320] thee?

20:7 [Art] not thou our God [H430] , [who] didst drive out [H3423] the inhabitants [H3427] of this land [H776] before [H6440] thy people [H5971] Israel [H3478] , and gavest [H5414] it to the seed [H2233] of Abraham [H85] thy friend [H157] for ever [H5769] ?(who: Heb. thou)

20:8 And they dwelt [H3427] therein, and have built [H1129] thee a sanctuary [H4720] therein for thy name [H8034] , saying [H559] ,

20:9 If, [when] evil [H7451] cometh [H935] upon us, [as] the sword [H2719] , judgment [H8196] , or pestilence [H1698] , or famine [H7458] , we stand [H5975] before [H6440] this house [H1004] , and in thy presence [H6440] , (for thy name [H8034] [is] in this house [H1004] ,) and cry [H2199] unto thee in our affliction [H6869] , then thou wilt hear [H8085] and help [H3467] .

20:10 And now, behold, the children [H1121] of Ammon [H5983] and Moab [H4124] and mount [H2022] Seir [H8165] , whom thou wouldest not let [H5414] Israel [H3478] invade [H935] , when they came out [H935] of the land [H776] of Egypt [H4714] , but they turned [H5493] from them, and destroyed [H8045] them not;

20:11 Behold, [I say, how] they reward [H1580] us, to come [H935] to cast us out [H1644] of thy possession [H3425] , which thou hast given us to inherit [H3423] .

20:12 O our God [H430] , wilt thou not judge [H8199] them? for we have no might [H3581] against [H6440] this great [H7227] company [H1995] that cometh [H935] against us; neither know [H3045] we [H587] what to do [H6213] : but our eyes [H5869] [are] upon thee.

20:13 And all Judah [H3063] stood [H5975] before [H6440] the LORD [H3068] , with [H1571] their little ones [H2945] , their wives [H802] , and their children [H1121] .

20:14 Then upon Jahaziel [H3166] the son [H1121] of Zechariah [H2148] , the son [H1121] of Benaiah [H1141] , the son [H1121] of Jeiel [H3273] , the son [H1121] of Mattaniah [H4983] , a Levite [H3881] of the sons [H1121] of Asaph [H623] , came the Spirit [H7307] of the LORD [H3068] in the midst [H8432] of the congregation [H6951] ;

20:15 And he said [H559] , Hearken [H7181] ye, all Judah [H3063] , and ye inhabitants [H3427] of Jerusalem [H3389] , and thou king [H4428] Jehoshaphat [H3092] , Thus saith [H559] the LORD [H3068] unto you, Be not afraid [H3372] nor dismayed [H2865] by reason [H6440] of this great [H7227] multitude [H1995] ; for the battle [H4421] [is] not yours, but God's [H430] .

20:16 To morrow [H4279] go ye down [H3381] against them: behold, they come up [H5927] by the cliff [H4608] of Ziz [H6732] ; and ye shall find [H4672] them at the end [H5490] of the brook [H5158] , before [H6440] the wilderness [H4057] of Jeruel [H3385] .(cliff: Heb. ascent)(brook: or, valley)

20:17 Ye shall not [need] to fight [H3898] in this [H2063] [battle]: set [H3320] yourselves, stand [H5975] ye [still], and see [H7200] the salvation [H3444] of the LORD [H3068] with you, O Judah [H3063] and Jerusalem [H3389] : fear [H3372] not, nor be dismayed [H2865] ; to morrow [H4279] go out [H3318] against [H6440] them: for the LORD [H3068] [will be] with you.

20:18 And Jehoshaphat [H3092] bowed [H6915] his head with [his] face [H639] to the ground [H776] : and all Judah [H3063] and the inhabitants [H3427] of Jerusalem [H3389] fell [H5307] before [H6440] the LORD [H3068] , worshipping [H7812] the LORD [H3068] .

20:19 And the Levites [H3881] , of the children [H1121] of the Kohathites [H6956] , and of the children [H1121] of the Korhites [H7145] , stood up [H6965] to praise [H1984] the LORD [H3068] God [H430] of Israel [H3478] with a loud [H1419] voice [H6963] on high [H4605] .

20:20 And they rose early [H7925] in the morning [H1242] , and went forth [H3318] into the wilderness [H4057] of Tekoa [H8620] : and as they went forth [H3318] , Jehoshaphat [H3092] stood [H5975] and said [H559] , Hear [H8085] me, O Judah [H3063] , and ye inhabitants [H3427] of Jerusalem [H3389] ; Believe [H539] in the LORD [H3068] your God [H430] , so shall ye be established [H539] ; believe [H539] his prophets [H5030] , so shall ye prosper [H6743] .

20:21 And when he had consulted [H3289] with the people [H5971] , he appointed [H5975] singers [H7891] unto the LORD [H3068] , and that should praise [H1984] the beauty [H1927] of holiness [H6944] , as they went out [H3318] before [H6440] the army [H2502] , and to say [H559] , Praise [H3034] the LORD [H3068] ; for his mercy [H2617] [endureth] for ever [H5769] .(that: Heb. praisers)

20:22 And when [H6256] they began [H2490] to sing [H7440] and to praise [H8416] , the LORD [H3068] set [H5414] ambushments [H693] against the children [H1121] of Ammon [H5983] , Moab [H4124] , and mount [H2022] Seir [H8165] , which were come [H935] against Judah [H3063] ; and they were smitten [H5062] .(And when: Heb. And in the time that they, etc)(to sing: Heb. in singing and praise)(they were: or, they smote one another)

20:23 For the children [H1121] of Ammon [H5983] and Moab [H4124] stood up [H5975] against the inhabitants [H3427] of mount [H2022] Seir [H8165] , utterly to slay [H2763] and destroy [H8045] [them]: and when they had made an end [H3615] of the inhabitants [H3427] of Seir [H8165] , every one [H376] helped [H5826] to destroy [H4889] another [H7453] .(to destroy: Heb. for the destruction)

20:24 And when Judah [H3063] came [H935] toward the watch tower [H4707] [H4708] in the wilderness [H4057] , they looked [H6437] unto the multitude [H1995] , and, behold, they [were] dead bodies [H6297] fallen [H5307] to the earth [H776] , and none escaped [H6413] .(none: Heb. there was not an escaping)

20:25 And when Jehoshaphat [H3092] and his people [H5971] came [H935] to take away [H962] the spoil [H7998] of them, they found [H4672] among them in abundance [H7230] both riches [H7399] with the dead bodies [H6297] , and precious [H2532] jewels [H3627] , which they stripped off [H5337] for themselves, more than [H369] they could carry away [H4853] : and they were three [H7969] days [H3117] in gathering [H962] of the spoil [H7998] , it was so much [H7227] .

20:26 And on the fourth [H7243] day [H3117] they assembled [H6950] themselves in the valley [H6010] of Berachah [H1294] ; for there they blessed [H1288] the LORD [H3068] : therefore the name [H8034] of the same place [H4725] was called [H7121] , The valley [H6010] of Berachah [H1294] , unto this day [H3117] .(Berachah: that is, blessing)

20:27 Then they returned [H7725] , every man [H376] of Judah [H3063] and Jerusalem [H3389] , and Jehoshaphat [H3092] in the forefront [H7218] of them, to go again [H7725] to Jerusalem [H3389] with joy [H8057] ; for the LORD [H3068] had made them to rejoice [H8055] over their enemies [H341] .(forefront: Heb. head)

20:28 And they came [H935] to Jerusalem [H3389] with psalteries [H5035] and harps [H3658] and trumpets [H2689] unto the house [H1004] of the LORD [H3068] .

20:29 And the fear [H6343] of God [H430] was on all the kingdoms [H4467] of [those] countries [H776] , when they had heard [H8085] that the LORD [H3068] fought [H3898] against the enemies [H341] of Israel [H3478] .

20:30 So the realm [H4438] of Jehoshaphat [H3092] was quiet [H8252] : for his God [H430] gave him rest [H5117] round about [H5439] .

20:31 And Jehoshaphat [H3092] reigned [H4427] over Judah [H3063] : [he was] thirty [H7970] and five [H2568] years [H8141] old [H1121] when he began to reign [H4427] , and he reigned [H4427] twenty [H6242] and five [H2568] years [H8141] in Jerusalem [H3389] . And his mother's [H517] name [H8034] [was] Azubah [H5806] the daughter [H1323] of Shilhi [H7977] .

20:32 And he walked [H3212] in the way [H1870] of Asa [H609] his father [H1] , and departed [H5493] not from it, doing [H6213] [that which was] right [H3477] in the sight [H5869] of the LORD [H3068] .

20:33 Howbeit the high places [H1116] were not taken away [H5493] : for as yet the people [H5971] had not prepared [H3559] their hearts [H3824] unto the God [H430] of their fathers [H1] .

20:34 Now the rest [H3499] of the acts [H1697] of Jehoshaphat [H3092] , first [H7223] and last [H314] , behold, they [are] written [H3789] in the book [H1697] of Jehu [H3058] the son [H1121] of Hanani [H2607] , who [is] mentioned [H5927] in the book [H5612] of the kings [H4428] of Israel [H3478] .(book of Jehu: Heb. words, etc)(is mentioned: Heb. was made to ascend)

20:35 And after [H310] this did Jehoshaphat [H3092] king [H4428] of Judah [H3063] join [H2266] himself with Ahaziah [H274] king [H4428] of Israel [H3478] , who did [H6213] very wickedly [H7561] :

20:36 And he joined [H2266] himself with him to make [H6213] ships [H591] to go [H3212] to Tarshish [H8659] : and they made [H6213] the ships [H591] in Eziongeber [H6100] .

20:37 Then Eliezer [H461] the son [H1121] of Dodavah [H1735] of Mareshah [H4762] prophesied [H5012] against Jehoshaphat [H3092] , saying [H559] , Because thou hast joined [H2266] thyself with Ahaziah [H274] , the LORD [H3068] hath broken [H6555] thy works [H4639] . And the ships [H591] were broken [H7665] , that they were not able [H6113] to go [H3212] to Tarshish [H8659] .
