    20:1 It came to pass after this 310 also, [that] the children 1121 of Moab 4124, and the children 1121 of Ammon 5983, and with them [other] beside the Ammonites 5984, came 935 8804 against Jehoshaphat 3092 to battle 4421.

    20:2 Then there came 935 8799 some that told 5046 8686 Jehoshaphat 3092, saying 559 8800, There cometh 935 8802 a great 7227 multitude 1995 against thee from beyond 5676 the sea 3220 on this side Syria 758; and, behold, they [be] in Hazazontamar 2688, which [is] Engedi 5872.

    20:3 And Jehoshaphat 3092 feared 3372 8799, and set 5414 8799 himself 6440 to seek 1875 8800 the LORD 3068, and proclaimed 7121 8799 a fast 6685 throughout 5921 all Judah 3063.(himself: Heb. his face)

    20:4 And Judah 3063 gathered themselves together 6908 8735, to ask 1245 8763 [help] of the LORD 3068: even out of all the cities 5892 of Judah 3063 they came 935 8804 to seek 1245 8763 the LORD 3068.

    20:5 And Jehoshaphat 3092 stood 5975 8799 in the congregation 6951 of Judah 3063 and Jerusalem 3389, in the house 1004 of the LORD 3068, before 6440 the new 2319 court 2691,

    20:6 And said 559 8799, O LORD 3068 God 430 of our fathers 1, [art] not thou God 430 in heaven 8064? and rulest 4910 8802 [not] thou over all the kingdoms 4467 of the heathen 1471? and in thine hand 3027 [is there not] power 3581 and might 1369, so that none is able to withstand 3320 8692 thee?

    20:7 [Art] not thou our God 430, [who] didst drive out 3423 8689 the inhabitants 3427 8802 of this land 776 before 6440 thy people 5971 Israel 3478, and gavest 5414 8799 it to the seed 2233 of Abraham 85 thy friend 157 8802 for ever 5769?(who: Heb. thou)

    20:8 And they dwelt 3427 8799 therein, and have built 1129 8799 thee a sanctuary 4720 therein for thy name 8034, saying 559 8800,

    20:9 If, [when] evil 7451 cometh 935 8799 upon us, [as] the sword 2719, judgment 8196, or pestilence 1698, or famine 7458, we stand 5975 8799 before 6440 this house 1004, and in thy presence 6440, (for thy name 8034 [is] in this house 1004,) and cry 2199 8799 unto thee in our affliction 6869, then thou wilt hear 8085 8799 and help 3467 8686.

    20:10 And now, behold, the children 1121 of Ammon 5983 and Moab 4124 and mount 2022 Seir 8165, whom thou wouldest not let 5414 8804 Israel 3478 invade 935 8800, when they came out 935 8800 of the land 776 of Egypt 4714, but they turned 5493 8804 from them, and destroyed 8045 8689 them not;

    20:11 Behold, [I say, how] they reward 1580 8802 us, to come 935 8800 to cast us out 1644 8763 of thy possession 3425, which thou hast given us to inherit 3423 8689.

    20:12 O our God 430, wilt thou not judge 8199 8799 them? for we have no might 3581 against 6440 this great 7227 company 1995 that cometh 935 8802 against us; neither know 3045 8799 we 587 what to do 6213 8799: but our eyes 5869 [are] upon thee.

    20:13 And all Judah 3063 stood 5975 8802 before 6440 the LORD 3068, with 1571 their little ones 2945, their wives 802, and their children 1121.

    20:14 Then upon Jahaziel 3166 the son 1121 of Zechariah 2148, the son 1121 of Benaiah 1141, the son 1121 of Jeiel 3273, the son 1121 of Mattaniah 4983, a Levite 3881 of the sons 1121 of Asaph 623, came the Spirit 7307 of the LORD 3068 in the midst 8432 of the congregation 6951;

    20:15 And he said 559 8799, Hearken 7181 8685 ye, all Judah 3063, and ye inhabitants 3427 8802 of Jerusalem 3389, and thou king 4428 Jehoshaphat 3092, Thus saith 559 8804 the LORD 3068 unto you, Be not afraid 3372 8799 nor dismayed 2865 8735 by reason 6440 of this great 7227 multitude 1995; for the battle 4421 [is] not yours, but God's 430.

    20:16 To morrow 4279 go ye down 3381 8798 against them: behold, they come up 5927 8802 by the cliff 4608 of Ziz 6732; and ye shall find 4672 8804 them at the end 5490 of the brook 5158, before 6440 the wilderness 4057 of Jeruel 3385.(cliff: Heb. ascent)(brook: or, valley)

    20:17 Ye shall not [need] to fight 3898 8736 in this 2063 [battle]: set 3320 8690 yourselves, stand 5975 8798 ye [still], and see 7200 8798 the salvation 3444 of the LORD 3068 with you, O Judah 3063 and Jerusalem 3389: fear 3372 8799 not, nor be dismayed 2865 8735; to morrow 4279 go out 3318 8798 against 6440 them: for the LORD 3068 [will be] with you.

    20:18 And Jehoshaphat 3092 bowed 6915 8799 his head with [his] face 639 to the ground 776: and all Judah 3063 and the inhabitants 3427 8802 of Jerusalem 3389 fell 5307 8804 before 6440 the LORD 3068, worshipping 7812 8692 the LORD 3068.

    20:19 And the Levites 3881, of the children 1121 of the Kohathites 6956, and of the children 1121 of the Korhites 7145, stood up 6965 8799 to praise 1984 8763 the LORD 3068 God 430 of Israel 3478 with a loud 1419 voice 6963 on high 4605.

    20:20 And they rose early 7925 8686 in the morning 1242, and went forth 3318 8799 into the wilderness 4057 of Tekoa 8620: and as they went forth 3318 8800, Jehoshaphat 3092 stood 5975 8804 and said 559 8799, Hear 8085 8798 me, O Judah 3063, and ye inhabitants 3427 8802 of Jerusalem 3389; Believe 539 8685 in the LORD 3068 your God 430, so shall ye be established 539 8735; believe 539 8685 his prophets 5030, so shall ye prosper 6743 8685.

    20:21 And when he had consulted 3289 8735 with the people 5971, he appointed 5975 8686 singers 7891 8789 unto the LORD 3068, and that should praise 1984 8764 the beauty 1927 of holiness 6944, as they went out 3318 8800 before 6440 the army 2502 8803, and to say 559 8802, Praise 3034 8685 the LORD 3068; for his mercy 2617 [endureth] for ever 5769.(that…: Heb. praisers)

    20:22 And when 6256 they began 2490 8689 to sing 7440 and to praise 8416, the LORD 3068 set 5414 8804 ambushments 693 8764 against the children 1121 of Ammon 5983, Moab 4124, and mount 2022 Seir 8165, which were come 935 8802 against Judah 3063; and they were smitten 5062 8735.(And when…: Heb. And in the time that they, etc)(to sing…: Heb. in singing and praise)(they were…: or, they smote one another)

    20:23 For the children 1121 of Ammon 5983 and Moab 4124 stood up 5975 8799 against the inhabitants 3427 8802 of mount 2022 Seir 8165, utterly to slay 2763 8687 and destroy 8045 8687 [them]: and when they had made an end 3615 8763 of the inhabitants 3427 8802 of Seir 8165, every one 376 helped 5826 8804 to destroy 4889 another 7453.(to destroy: Heb. for the destruction)

    20:24 And when Judah 3063 came 935 8804 toward the watch tower 4707 8677 4708 in the wilderness 4057, they looked 6437 8799 unto the multitude 1995, and, behold, they [were] dead bodies 6297 fallen 5307 8802 to the earth 776, and none escaped 6413.(none…: Heb. there was not an escaping)

    20:25 And when Jehoshaphat 3092 and his people 5971 came 935 8799 to take away 962 8800 the spoil 7998 of them, they found 4672 8799 among them in abundance 7230 both riches 7399 with the dead bodies 6297, and precious 2532 jewels 3627, which they stripped off 5337 8762 for themselves, more than 369 they could carry away 4853: and they were three 7969 days 3117 in gathering 962 8802 of the spoil 7998, it was so much 7227.

    20:26 And on the fourth 7243 day 3117 they assembled 6950 8738 themselves in the valley 6010 of Berachah 1294; for there they blessed 1288 8765 the LORD 3068: therefore the name 8034 of the same place 4725 was called 7121 8804, The valley 6010 of Berachah 1294, unto this day 3117.(Berachah: that is, blessing)

    20:27 Then they returned 7725 8799, every man 376 of Judah 3063 and Jerusalem 3389, and Jehoshaphat 3092 in the forefront 7218 of them, to go again 7725 8800 to Jerusalem 3389 with joy 8057; for the LORD 3068 had made them to rejoice 8055 8765 over their enemies 341 8802.(forefront: Heb. head)

    20:28 And they came 935 8799 to Jerusalem 3389 with psalteries 5035 and harps 3658 and trumpets 2689 unto the house 1004 of the LORD 3068.

    20:29 And the fear 6343 of God 430 was on all the kingdoms 4467 of [those] countries 776, when they had heard 8085 8800 that the LORD 3068 fought 3898 8738 against the enemies 341 8802 of Israel 3478.

    20:30 So the realm 4438 of Jehoshaphat 3092 was quiet 8252 8799: for his God 430 gave him rest 5117 8799 round about 5439.

    20:31 And Jehoshaphat 3092 reigned 4427 8799 over Judah 3063: [he was] thirty 7970 and five 2568 years 8141 old 1121 when he began to reign 4427 8800, and he reigned 4427 8804 twenty 6242 and five 2568 years 8141 in Jerusalem 3389. And his mother's 517 name 8034 [was] Azubah 5806 the daughter 1323 of Shilhi 7977.

    20:32 And he walked 3212 8799 in the way 1870 of Asa 609 his father 1, and departed 5493 8804 not from it, doing 6213 8800 [that which was] right 3477 in the sight 5869 of the LORD 3068.

    20:33 Howbeit the high places 1116 were not taken away 5493 8804: for as yet the people 5971 had not prepared 3559 8689 their hearts 3824 unto the God 430 of their fathers 1.

    20:34 Now the rest 3499 of the acts 1697 of Jehoshaphat 3092, first 7223 and last 314, behold, they [are] written 3789 8803 in the book 1697 of Jehu 3058 the son 1121 of Hanani 2607, who [is] mentioned 5927 8717 in the book 5612 of the kings 4428 of Israel 3478.(book of Jehu: Heb. words, etc)(is mentioned: Heb. was made to ascend)

    20:35 And after 310 this did Jehoshaphat 3092 king 4428 of Judah 3063 join 2266 8694 himself with Ahaziah 274 king 4428 of Israel 3478, who did 6213 8800 very wickedly 7561 8689:

    20:36 And he joined 2266 8762 himself with him to make 6213 8800 ships 591 to go 3212 8800 to Tarshish 8659: and they made 6213 8799 the ships 591 in Eziongeber 6100.

    20:37 Then Eliezer 461 the son 1121 of Dodavah 1735 of Mareshah 4762 prophesied 5012 8691 against Jehoshaphat 3092, saying 559 8800, Because thou hast joined 2266 8692 thyself with Ahaziah 274, the LORD 3068 hath broken 6555 8804 thy works 4639. And the ships 591 were broken 7665 8735, that they were not able 6113 8804 to go 3212 8800 to Tarshish 8659.
