2 Chronicles 19 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)
19 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 those who 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 Asherah poles 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 fortified 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 matter of judgment.
7 Therefore 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 bribes.”
8 Moreover in Jerusalem, Jehoshaphat set some of the Levites and some of the priests and some 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 whatsoever cause shall come to you from your brethren who 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.”
