2 Chronicles 17:1 - 17:6
Jehoshaphat Reigns over JudahJehoshaphat his son then became king in his place, and strengthened himself over Israel. 2 And he put military forces in all the fortified cities of Judah, and put garrisons in the land of Judah and in the cities of Ephraim which Asa his father had captured.
Jehoshaphat’s Kingdom Established3 And Yahweh was with Jehoshaphat because he walked in the ways of his father David’s earlier days and did not seek the Baals, 4 but sought the God of his father, walked in His commandments, and did not act as Israel did. 5 So Yahweh established the kingdom in his hand, and all Judah brought presents to Jehoshaphat, and he had great riches and honor. 6 And his heart took great pride in the ways of Yahweh, and again he took away the high places and the Asherim from Judah.
