The New John Gill Exposition of the Entire Bible1 Kings 22:2
And it came to pass in the third year…
Of the peace,
before it was expired:
that Jehoshaphat the king of Judah came down to the king of Israel;
to Ahab, from Jerusalem to Samaria, reckoned thirty two miles F13;
either to make peace with him, and put an end to the wars which
subsisted between Israel and Judah since the division of the kingdom,
(1 Kings 22:44) or to contract an affinity with him, by marrying his son
to a daughter of Ahab, (2 Kings 8:18,26) or rather after peace was made,
and that strengthened by the marriage; and so he went merely to pay a
visit, as he judged he might then with great safety; and he and all
his retinue were entertained by Ahab in a very sumptuous and liberal
manner, (2 Chronicles 18:1,2) .
