2 Chronicles 18
18:1 ¶ Now Jehoshaphat had riches and honor in abundance, and joined affinity with Ahab.
18:2 And after [certain] years he went down to Ahab to Samaria. And Ahab killed sheep and oxen for him in abundance, and for the people that [he had] with him, and persuaded him to go up [with him] to Ramoth-gilead.
18:3 And Ahab king of Israel said to Jehoshaphat king of Judah, Wilt thou go with me to Ramoth-gilead? And he answered him, I [am] as thou [art], and my people as thy people; and [we will be] with thee in the war.
18:5 Therefore the king of Israel collected of prophets four hundred men, and said to them, Shall we go to Ramoth-gilead to battle, or shall I forbear? And they said, Go up; for God will deliver [it] into the king's hand.
18:7 And the king of Israel said to Jehoshaphat, [There is] yet one man, by whom we may inquire of the LORD: but I hate him; for he never prophesieth good to me, but always evil: the same [is] Micaiah the son of Imla. And Jehoshaphat said, Let not the king say so.
18:8 And the king of Israel called for one [of his] officers, and said, Bring quickly Micaiah the son of Imla.
18:9 And the king of Israel and Jehoshaphat king of Judah sat each of them on his throne, clothed in [their] robes, and they sat in a void place at the entrance of the gate of Samaria; and all the prophets prophesied before them.
18:12 And the messenger that went to call Micaiah spoke to him, saying, Behold, the words of the prophets [declare] good to the king with one consent; let thy word therefore, I pray thee, be like one of theirs, and speak thou good.
18:14 And when he had come to the king, the king said to him, Micaiah, shall we go to Ramoth-gilead to battle, or shall I forbear? And he said, Go ye up, and prosper, and they shall be delivered into your hand.
18:16 Then he said, I saw all Israel scattered upon the mountains, as sheep that have no shepherd: and the LORD said, These have no master; let them return [therefore] every man to his house in peace.
18:17 And the king of Israel said to Jehoshaphat, Did I not tell thee [that] he would not prophesy good to me, but evil?
18:24 And Micaiah said, Behold, thou shalt see on that day when thou shalt go into an inner chamber to hide thyself.
18:25 Then the king of Israel said, Take ye Micaiah, and carry him back to Amon the governor of the city, and to Joash the king's son;
18:26 And say, Thus saith the king, Put this [man] in the prison, and feed him with bread of affliction and with water of affliction, until I return in peace.
18:28 So the king of Israel and Jehoshaphat the king of Judah went up to Ramoth-gilead.
18:29 And the king of Israel said to Jehoshaphat, I will disguise myself, and will go to the battle; but put thou on thy robes. So the king of Israel disguised himself; and they went to the battle.
18:30 Now the king of Syria had commanded the captains of the chariots that [were] with him, saying, Fight ye not with small or great, save only with the king of Israel.
18:31 And it came to pass, when the captains of the chariots saw Jehoshaphat, that they said, It [is] the king of Israel. Therefore they compassed about him to fight: but Jehoshaphat cried out, and the LORD helped him; and God moved them [to depart] from him.
18:32 For it came to pass, that when the captains of the chariots perceived that it was not the king of Israel, they turned back again from pursuing him.
18:33 And a [certain] man drew a bow at a venture, and smote the king of Israel between the joints of the harness: therefore he said to his chariot-man, Turn thy hand, that thou mayest carry me out of the host; for I am wounded.
18:34 And the battle increased that day: yet the king of Israel supported [himself] in [his] chariot against the Syrians until the evening: and about the time of the sun setting he died.
