2 Chronicles 17:1-6 Revised Standard Version (RSV)

Jehoshaphat’s Reign

17 Jehosh′aphat his son reigned in his stead, and strengthened himself against Israel. He placed forces in all the fortified cities of Judah, and set garrisons in the land of Judah, and in the cities of E′phraim which Asa his father had taken. The Lord was with Jehosh′aphat, because he walked in the earlier ways of his father;[a] he did not seek the Ba′als, but sought the God of his father and walked in his commandments, and not according to the ways of Israel. Therefore the Lord established the kingdom in his hand; and all Judah brought tribute to Jehosh′aphat; and he had great riches and honor. His heart was courageous in the ways of the Lord; and furthermore he took the high places and the Ashe′rim out of Judah.
