2 Chronicles – Chapter 19

2 Chronicles chapter 19

Verses 1-3 – Jehoshaphat returned safely to Jerusalem. Just as his father, Asa, had been greeted by the prophet Hanani, now Jehu son of Hanani scolded Jehoshaphat. But because Jehoshaphat was a good king who had gone further than any other in purging the land of idolatry, he would not have to face a serious judgment as his father did.

Verse 4 – Another difference between Asa and Jehoshaphat, is that Jehoshaphat did not turn against the prophet who had declared God’s anger to him.

Verses 5-7 – In appointing regional judges, Jehoshaphat reminded them of two things; God would be watching and God was the model for impartiality.

Verses 8-11 – Some of these judges were Levites and priests and were accountable only to the Lord. Their supervisor was not the king but Amariah, the high priest. They would serve as an appeals court for the regional judges. Zebadiah, the ruler of the house of Judah along with the Levites, was to be the final authority in cases that involved the king himself.
