2 Chronicles 19:1 And Iehosaphat the king of Iuda came home againe in peace to Hierusalem. 2 Chronicles 19:2 And Iehu the sonne of Hanani the sear went out to meete him, and sayd to king Iehosaphat: Wouldest thou helpe the vngodly, and loue them that hate the Lorde? Therfore is wrath come downe vpon thee from before the Lorde: 2 Chronicles 19:3 Neuerthelesse, there are some good actes founde in thee, in that thou hast hewen downe the groues out of the lande, and hast prepared thyne heart to seke God. 2 Chronicles 19:4 And Iehosaphat dwelt at Hierusalem, and turned and went out to the people from Beerseba to mount Ephraim, and brought them againe vnto the Lorde God of their fathers.
His instructions to the judges,
2 Chronicles 19:5 And he set iudges in the lande throughout all the strong cities of Iuda, citie by citie: 2 Chronicles 19:6 And sayde to the iudges, Take heede what ye do: for ye execute not the iudgementes of man, but of God, whiche is with you in the iudgement. 2 Chronicles 19:7 Wherfore now let the feare of the Lord be vpon you, and take heede, & be doyng [the thing that pleaseth hym] for there is no vnrighteousnes with the Lorde our God, that he shoulde haue any respect of persons, or take rewardes.
