Now Jehoshaphat had riches and honour in abundance , etc.] Still more and more, (see 2 Chronicles 17:5), and which moved Ahab to desire friendship and affinity with him, to which Jehoshaphat agreed: and joined affinity with Ahab ; king of Israel, married his son Joram to Athaliah, a daughter of Ahab by Jezebel of Zidon; which marriage proved of bad consequence to Jehoshaphat and his family.
Ver. 2 .
