dixitque Iosaphat numquid non est hic prophetes Domini utab illo etiam requiramus

18:7
et ait rex Israhel ad Iosaphat est vir unus a quo possumusquaerere Domini voluntatem sed ego odi eum quia non prophetatmihi bonum sed malum omni tempore est autem Micheas filiusIembla dixitque Iosaphat ne loquaris rex hoc modo

18:8

18:9
porro rex Israhel et Iosaphat rex Iuda uterque sedebant insolio suo vestiti cultu regio sedebant autem in area iuxtaportam Samariae omnesque prophetae vaticinabantur coram eis

18:10
Sedecias vero filius Chanana fecit sibi cornua ferrea etait haec dicit Dominus his ventilabis Syriam donec conteras eam

at ille ait vidi universum Israhel dispersum in montibussicut oves absque pastore et dixit Dominus non habent istidominos revertatur unusquisque ad domum suam in pace

18:17
et ait rex Israhel ad Iosaphat nonne dixi tibi quod nonprophetaret iste mihi quicquam boni sed ea quae mala sunt

at ille idcirco ait audite verbum Domini vidi Dominumsedentem in solio suo et omnem exercitum caeli adsistentem ei adextris et sinistris

18:19
et dixit Dominus quis decipiet Ahab regem Israhel utascendat et corruat in Ramoth Galaad cumque diceret unus hocmodo et alter alio

18:20
processit spiritus et stetit coram Domino et ait egodecipiam eum cui Dominus in quo inquit decipies

18:27
dixitque Micheas si reversus fueris in pace non estlocutus Dominus in me et ait audite populi omnes

18:28
igitur ascenderunt rex Israhel et Iosaphat rex Iuda inRamoth Galaad

18:29
dixitque rex Israhel ad Iosaphat mutabo habitum et sic adpugnandum vadam tu autem induere vestibus tuis mutatoque rexIsrahel habitu venit ad bellum

18:30
rex autem Syriae praeceperat ducibus equitatus sui dicensne pugnetis contra minimum aut contra maximum nisi contra solumregem Israhel

18:31
itaque cum vidissent principes equitatus Iosaphat dixeruntrex Israhel iste est et circumdederunt eum dimicantes at illeclamavit ad Dominum et auxiliatus est ei atque avertit eos abillo

18:32
cum enim vidissent duces equitatus quod non esset rexIsrahel reliquerunt eum

18:33
accidit autem ut unus e populo sagittam in incertumiaceret et percuteret regem Israhel inter cervicem et scapulasat ille aurigae suo ait converte manum tuam et educ me de aciequia vulneratus sum

18:34
et finita est pugna in die illo porro rex Israhel stabatin curru suo contra Syros usque ad vesperam et mortuus estoccidente sole

018:001
Now Jehoshaphat had riches and honor in abundance, and joined affinity with Ahab.

018:002
And after certain years he went down to Ahab to Samaria. And Ahab killed sheep and oxen for him in abundance, and for the people that he had with him, and persuaded him to go up with him to Ramothgilead.

018:003
And Ahab king of Israel said unto Jehoshaphat king of Judah, Wilt thou go with me to Ramothgilead? And he answered him, I am as thou art, and my people as thy people; and we will be with thee in the war.

018:004
And Jehoshaphat said unto the king of Israel, Enquire, I pray thee, at the word of the LORD to day.

018:005
Therefore the king of Israel gathered together of prophets four hundred men, and said unto them, Shall we go to Ramothgilead to battle, or shall I forbear? And they said, Go up; for God will deliver it into the king's hand.

018:006
But Jehoshaphat said, Is there not here a prophet of the LORD besides, that we might enquire of him?

018:007
And the king of Israel said unto Jehoshaphat, There is yet one man, by whom we may enquire of the LORD: but I hate him; for he never prophesied good unto me, but always evil: the same is Micaiah the son of Imla. And Jehoshaphat said, Let not the king say so.

018:008
And the king of Israel called for one of his officers, and said, Fetch quickly Micaiah the son of Imla.

018:009
And the king of Israel and Jehoshaphat king of Judah sat either of them on his throne, clothed in their robes, and they sat in a void place at the entering in of the gate of Samaria; and all the prophets prophesied before them.

018:010
And Zedekiah the son of Chenaanah had made him horns of iron, and said, Thus saith the LORD, With these thou shalt push Syria until they be consumed.

018:011
And all the prophets prophesied so, saying, Go up to Ramothgilead, and prosper: for the LORD shall deliver it into the hand of the king.

018:012
And the messenger that went to call Micaiah spake to him, saying, Behold, the words of the prophets declare good to the king with one assent; let thy word therefore, I pray thee, be like one of theirs, and speak thou good.

018:013
And Micaiah said, As the LORD liveth, even what my God saith, that will I speak.

018:014
And when he was come to the king, the king said unto him, Micaiah, shall we go to Ramothgilead to battle, or shall I forbear? And he said, Go ye up, and prosper, and they shall be delivered into your hand.

018:015
And the king said to him, How many times shall I adjure thee that thou say nothing but the truth to me in the name of the LORD?

018:016
Then he said, I did see all Israel scattered upon the mountains, as sheep that have no shepherd: and the LORD said, These have no master; let them return therefore every man to his house in peace.

018:017
And the king of Israel said to Jehoshaphat, Did I not tell thee that he would not prophesy good unto me, but evil?

018:018
Again he said, Therefore hear the word of the LORD; I saw the LORD sitting upon his throne, and all the host of heaven standing on his right hand and on his left.

018:019
And the LORD said, Who shall entice Ahab king of Israel, that he may go up and fall at Ramothgilead? And one spake saying after this manner, and another saying after that manner.

018:020
Then there came out a spirit, and stood before the LORD, and said, I will entice him. And the LORD said unto him, Wherewith?

018:021
And he said, I will go out, and be a lying spirit in the mouth of all his prophets. And the Lord said, Thou shalt entice him, and thou shalt also prevail: go out, and do even so.

018:022
Now therefore, behold, the LORD hath put a lying spirit in the mouth of these thy prophets, and the LORD hath spoken evil against thee.

018:023
Then Zedekiah the son of Chenaanah came near, and smote Micaiah upon the cheek, and said, Which way went the Spirit of the LORD from me to speak unto thee?

018:024
And Micaiah said, Behold, thou shalt see on that day when thou shalt go into an inner chamber to hide thyself.

018:025
Then the king of Israel said, Take ye Micaiah, and carry him back to Amon the governor of the city, and to Joash the king's son;

018:026
And say, Thus saith the king, Put this fellow in the prison, and feed him with bread of affliction and with water of affliction, until I return in peace.

018:027
And Micaiah said, If thou certainly return in peace, then hath not the LORD spoken by me. And he said, Hearken, all ye people.

018:028
So the king of Israel and Jehoshaphat the king of Judah went up to Ramothgilead.

018:029
And the king of Israel said unto Jehoshaphat, I will disguise myself, and I will go to the battle; but put thou on thy robes. So the king of Israel disguised himself; and they went to the battle.

018:030
Now the king of Syria had commanded the captains of the chariots that were with him, saying, Fight ye not with small or great, save only with the king of Israel.

018:031
And it came to pass, when the captains of the chariots saw Jehoshaphat, that they said, It is the king of Israel. Therefore they compassed about him to fight: but Jehoshaphat cried out, and the LORD helped him; and God moved them to depart from him.

018:032
For it came to pass, that, when the captains of the chariots perceived that it was not the king of Israel, they turned back again from pursuing him.

018:033
And a certain man drew a bow at a venture, and smote the king of Israel between the joints of the harness: therefore he said to his chariot man, Turn thine hand, that thou mayest carry me out of the host; for I am wounded.

018:034
And the battle increased that day: howbeit the king of Israel stayed himself up in his chariot against the Syrians until the even: and about the time of the sun going down he died.
