1 And Jehoshaphat his son reigned in his stead, and strengthened himself against Israel.

1 וַיִּמְלֹ֛ךְ יְהֹושָׁפָ֥ט בְּנֹ֖ו תַּחְתָּ֑יו וַיִּתְחַזֵּ֖ק עַל־יִשְׂרָאֵֽל׃

2 And he placed forces in all the fortified cities of Judah, and set garrisons in the land of Judah, and in the cities of Ephraim, which Asa his father had taken.

2 וַיִּ֨תֶּן־חַ֔יִל בְּכָל־עָרֵ֥י יְהוּדָ֖ה הַבְּצֻרֹ֑ות וַיִּתֵּ֤ן נְצִיבִים֙ בְּאֶ֣רֶץ יְהוּדָ֔ה וּבְעָרֵ֣י אֶפְרַ֔יִם אֲשֶׁ֥ר לָכַ֖ד אָסָ֥א אָבִֽיו׃

3 And the LORD was with Jehoshaphat, because he walked in the first ways of his father David, and sought not to Baalim;

3 וַיְהִ֥י יְהוָ֖ה עִם־יְהֹושָׁפָ֑ט כִּ֣י הָלַ֗ךְ בְּדַרְכֵ֞י דָּוִ֤יד אָבִיו֙ הָרִ֣אשֹׁנִ֔ים וְלֹ֥א דָרַ֖שׁ לַבְּעָלִֽים׃

4 But sought to the LORD God of his father, and walked in his commandments, and not after the doings of Israel.

4 כִּ֠י לֵֽאלֹהֵ֤י אָבִיו֙ דָּרָ֔שׁ וּבְמִצְוֹתָ֖יו הָלָ֑ךְ וְלֹ֖א כְּמַעֲשֵׂ֥ה יִשְׂרָאֵֽל׃

5 Therefore the LORD established the kingdom in his hand: and all Judah brought to Jehoshaphat presents; and he had riches and honor in abundance.

5 וַיָּ֨כֶן יְהוָ֤ה אֶת־הַמַּמְלָכָה֙ בְּיָדֹ֔ו וַיִּתְּנ֧וּ כָל־יְהוּדָ֛ה מִנְחָ֖ה לִיהֹושָׁפָ֑ט וַֽיְהִי־לֹ֥ו עֹֽשֶׁר־וְכָבֹ֖וד לָרֹֽב׃

6 And his heart was lifted up in the ways of the LORD: moreover he took away the high places and groves out of Judah.

6 וַיִּגְבַּ֥הּ לִבֹּ֖ו בְּדַרְכֵ֣י יְהוָ֑ה וְעֹ֗וד הֵסִ֛יר אֶת־הַבָּמֹ֥ות וְאֶת־הָאֲשֵׁרִ֖ים מִיהוּדָֽה׃

7 Also in the third year of his reign he sent to his princes, even to Ben-hail, and to Obadiah, and to Zechariah, and to Nethaneel, and to Michaiah, to teach in the cities of Judah.

7 וּבִשְׁנַ֨ת שָׁלֹ֜ושׁ לְמָלְכֹ֗ו שָׁלַ֤ח לְשָׂרָיו֙ לְבֶן־חַ֙יִל֙ וּלְעֹבַדְיָ֣ה וְלִזְכַרְיָ֔ה וְלִנְתַנְאֵ֖ל וּלְמִיכָיָ֑הוּ לְלַמֵּ֖ד בְּעָרֵ֥י יְהוּדָֽה׃

8 And with them he sent Levites, even Shemaiah, and Nethaniah, and Zebadiah, and Asahel, and Shemiramoth, and Jehonathan, and Adonijah, and Tobijah, and Tob-adonijah, Levites; and with them Elishama and Jehoram, priests.

8 וְעִמָּהֶ֣ם הַלְוִיִּ֗ם שְֽׁמַֽעְיָ֡הוּ וּנְתַנְיָ֡הוּ וּזְבַדְיָ֡הוּ וַעֲשָׂהאֵ֡ל וּשְׁמִרִימֹות וּשְׁמִֽירָמֹ֡ות וִֽיהֹונָתָן֩ וַאֲדֹ֨נִיָּ֧הוּ וְטֹֽובִיָּ֛הוּ וְטֹ֥וב אֲדֹונִיָּ֖ה הַלְוִיִּ֑ם וְעִמָּהֶ֛ם אֱלִישָׁמָ֥ע וִֽיהֹורָ֖ם הַכֹּהֲנִֽים׃

9 And they taught in Judah, and had the book of the law of the LORD with them, and went about throughout all the cities of Judah, and taught the people.

9 וַֽיְלַמְּדוּ֙ בִּֽיהוּדָ֔ה וְעִ֨מָּהֶ֔ם סֵ֖פֶר תֹּורַ֣ת יְהוָ֑ה וַיָּסֹ֙בּוּ֙ בְּכָל־עָרֵ֣י יְהוּדָ֔ה וַֽיְלַמְּד֖וּ בָּעָֽם׃

10 And the fear of the LORD fell upon all the kingdoms of the lands that were around Judah, so that they made no war against Jehoshaphat.

10 וַיְהִ֣י׀ פַּ֣חַד יְהוָ֗ה עַ֚ל כָּל־מַמְלְכֹ֣ות הָֽאֲרָצֹ֔ות אֲשֶׁ֖ר סְבִיבֹ֣ות יְהוּדָ֑ה וְלֹ֥א נִלְחֲמ֖וּ עִם־יְהֹושָׁפָֽט׃

11 Also some of the Philistines brought Jehoshaphat presents, and tribute silver; and the Arabians brought him flocks, seven thousand and seven hundred rams, and seven thousand and seven hundred he-goats.

11 וּמִן־פְּלִשְׁתִּ֗ים מְבִיאִ֧ים לִֽיהֹושָׁפָ֛ט מִנְחָ֖ה וְכֶ֣סֶף מַשָּׂ֑א גַּ֣ם הָֽעַרְבִיאִ֗ים מְבִיאִ֥ים לֹו֙ צֹ֕אן אֵילִ֔ים שִׁבְעַ֤ת אֲלָפִים֙ וּשְׁבַ֣ע מֵאֹ֔ות וּתְיָשִׁ֕ים שִׁבְעַ֥ת אֲלָפִ֖ים וּשְׁבַ֥ע מֵאֹֽות׃

12 And Jehoshaphat became exceedingly great; and he built in Judah castles, and cities of store.

12 וַיְהִ֧י יְהֹושָׁפָ֛ט הֹלֵ֥ךְ וְגָדֵ֖ל עַד־לְמָ֑עְלָה וַיִּ֧בֶן בִּֽיהוּדָ֛ה בִּירָנִיֹּ֖ות וְעָרֵ֥י מִסְכְּנֹֽות׃

13 And he had much business in the cities of Judah: and the men of war, mighty men of valor, were in Jerusalem.

13 וּמְלָאכָ֥ה רַבָּ֛ה הָ֥יָה לֹ֖ו בְּעָרֵ֣י יְהוּדָ֑ה וְאַנְשֵׁ֧י מִלְחָמָ֛ה גִּבֹּ֥ורֵי חַ֖יִל בִּירוּשָׁלִָֽם׃

14 And these are the numbers of them according to the house of their fathers: of Judah, the captains of thousands; Adnah the chief, and with him mighty men of valor three hundred thousand.

14 וְאֵ֥לֶּה פְקֻדָּתָ֖ם לְבֵ֣ית אֲבֹותֵיהֶ֑ם לִֽיהוּדָה֙ שָׂרֵ֣י אֲלָפִ֔ים עַדְנָ֣ה הַשָּׂ֔ר וְעִמֹּו֙ גִּבֹּ֣ורֵי חַ֔יִל שְׁלֹ֥שׁ מֵאֹ֖ות אָֽלֶף׃

15 And next to him was Jehohanan the captain, and with him two hundred and eighty thousand.

15 וְעַל־יָדֹ֖ו יְהֹוחָנָ֣ן הַשָּׂ֑ר וְעִמֹּ֕ו מָאתַ֥יִם וּשְׁמֹונִ֖ים אָֽלֶף׃

16 And next to him was Amasiah the son of Zichri, who willingly offered himself to the LORD; and with him two hundred thousand mighty men of valor.

16 וְעַל־יָדֹו֙ עֲמַסְיָ֣ה בֶן־זִכְרִ֔י הַמִּתְנַדֵּ֖ב לַיהוָ֑ה וְעִמֹּ֛ו מָאתַ֥יִם אֶ֖לֶף גִּבֹּ֥ור חָֽיִל׃

17 And of Benjamin; Eliada a mighty man of valor, and with him armed men with bow and shield two hundred thousand.

17 וּמִ֨ן־בִּנְיָמִ֔ן גִּבֹּ֥ור חַ֖יִל אֶלְיָדָ֑ע וְעִמֹּ֛ו נֹֽשְׁקֵי־קֶ֥שֶׁת וּמָגֵ֖ן מָאתַ֥יִם אָֽלֶף׃

18 And next to him was Jehozabad, and with him a hundred and eighty thousand ready prepared for the war.

18 וְעַל־יָדֹ֖ו יְהֹוזָבָ֑ד וְעִמֹּ֛ו מֵאָֽה־וּשְׁמֹונִ֥ים אֶ֖לֶף חֲלוּצֵ֥י צָבָֽא׃

19 These waited on the king, besides those whom the king put in the fortified cities throughout all Judah.

19 אֵ֖לֶּה הַמְשָׁרְתִ֣ים אֶת־הַמֶּ֑לֶךְ מִלְּבַ֞ד אֲשֶׁר־נָתַ֥ן הַמֶּ֛לֶךְ בְּעָרֵ֥י הַמִּבְצָ֖ר בְּכָל־יְהוּדָֽה׃
