Jehoshaphat Rebuked. 1King Jehoshaphat of Judah returned in safety to his house in Jerusalem. 2Jehu the seer, son of Hanani,* met King Jehoshaphat and said to him: “Should you help the wicked and love those who hate the LORD? For this reason, wrath is upon you from the LORD. 1Yet some good things are to be found in you, since you have removed the sacred poles from the land and have been determined to seek God.”

Judges Appointed. 4Jehoshaphat dwelt in Jerusalem; but he went out again among the people from Beer-sheba to the highlands of Ephraim and brought them back to the LORD, the God of their fathers.5He appointed judges in the land, in all the fortified cities of Judah, city by city, 6and he said to them: “Take care what you do, for you are judging, not on behalf of man, but on behalf of the LORD; he judges with you. q Dt 1, 16ff; 16, 19f . 7And now, let the fear of the LORD be upon you. Act carefully, for with the LORD, our God, there is no injustice, no partiality, no bribe-taking.” r Dt 10, 17 . 8In Jerusalem also, Jehoshaphat appointed some Levites and priests and some of the family heads of Israel to judge in the name of the LORD and to settle quarrels among the inhabitants of Jerusalem. s 2 Chr 17, 8f; Dt 17, 8–13; Ps 122, 3ff . 9He gave them this command: “You shall act faithfully and wholeheartedly in the fear of the LORD. 10And in every dispute that your brethren living in their cities bring to you, whether it concerns bloodguilt or questions of law, command, statutes, or judgments, warn them lest they become guilty before the LORD and his wrath come upon you and your brethren. Do that and you shall be guiltless. t Nm 35, 19 . 11See now, Amariah is high priest over you in everything that pertains to the LORD, and Zebadiah, son of Ishmael, is leader of the house of Judah in all that pertains to the king; and the Levites will be your officials. Act firmly, and the LORD will be with the good.”
