The story of this chapter we had just as it is here related in the story of the reign of Ahab king of Israel, 1 Kgs. 22:41-50 There it looks more creditable to Ahab than any thing else recorded of him that he was in league with so good a man as Jehoshaphat; here it is a great blemish in the reign of Jehoshaphat that he thus connected himself with so bad a man as Ahab. Here is, I. The alliance he contracted himself with Ahab, 2 Chron. 18:1. II. His consent to join with him in his expedition for the recovery of Ramoth-Gilead out of the hands of the Syrians, 2 Chron. 18:2, 3. III. Their consulting with the prophets, false and true, before they went, 2 Chron. 18:4-27. IV. The success of their expedition. Jehoshaphat hardly escaped (2 Chron. 18:28-32) and Ahab received his death’s wound, 2 Chron. 18:33, 34.
