- 1 Jehoshaphat R302 his son then became king in his place, and made his position over Israel firm. 2 He placed troops in all the R303 fortified cities of Judah, and set garrisons in the land of Judah and in the cities of Ephraim which R304 Asa his father had captured. 3 The LORD was with Jehoshaphat because he followed F147 the example of his father David's earlier days and did not seek the Baals, 4 but sought the God of his father, followed F148 His commandments, and R305 did not act as Israel did. 5 So the LORD established the kingdom in his control, F149 and all Judah brought tribute to Jehoshaphat, and he R306 had great riches and honor. 6 He F150 took great pride in the ways of the LORD and again removed R307 the high places and the Asherim from Judah. 7 Then in the third year of his reign he sent his officials, Ben-hail, Obadiah, Zechariah, Nethanel and Micaiah, to R308 teach in the cities of Judah; 8 and with them the R309 Levites, Shemaiah, Nethaniah, Zebadiah, Asahel, Shemiramoth, Jehonathan, Adonijah, Tobijah and Tobadonijah, the Levites; and with them Elishama and Jehoram, the priests. 9 They taught in Judah, having the R310 book of the law of the LORD with them; and they went throughout all the cities of Judah and taught among the people.
