2 Chronicles 19 & 20

  1. In the beginning of Jehoshaphat’s reign he continued the policy of maintaining fortified cities for defence against Israel.
    But later he made peace with Israel through a marriage alliance (18:1; 21:6).
    How was this alliance with Ahab rebuked, and on what grounds?
    Cf. 2 Cor. 6:14; see also 2 Chr. 20:35-37.
  2. After this rebuke, what further steps did Jehoshaphat take to establish true religion in the land?
  3. When peril came, what did Jehoshaphat do first?
    What impresses you most in this story?


Note. 20:2. ‘En Gedi’: on the western shore of the Dead Sea and therefore not from Jerusalem.
