2 Chronicles 19 (WEBP)

[1] Jehoshaphat the king of Judah returned to his house in peace to Jerusalem.
[2] Jehu the son of Hanani the seer went out to meet him, and said to King Jehoshaphat, “Should you help the wicked, and love those who hate Yahweh? Because of this, wrath is on you from before Yahweh.
[3] Nevertheless there are good things found in you, in that you have put away the Asheroth out of the land, and have set your heart to seek God.”
[4] Jehoshaphat lived at Jerusalem; and he went out again among the people from Beersheba to the hill country of Ephraim, and brought them back to Yahweh, the God of their fathers.
[5] He set judges in the land throughout all the fortified cities of Judah, city by city,
[6] and said to the judges, “Consider what you do, for you don’t judge for man, but for Yahweh; and he is with you in the judgment.
[7] Now therefore let the fear of Yahweh be on you. Take heed and do it; for there is no iniquity with Yahweh our God, nor respect of persons, nor taking of bribes.”
[8] Moreover in Jerusalem Jehoshaphat appointed certain Levites, priests, and heads of the fathers’ households of Israel to give judgment for Yahweh and for controversies. They returned to Jerusalem.
[9] He commanded them, saying, “You shall do this in the fear of Yahweh, faithfully, and with a perfect heart.
[10] Whenever any controversy comes to you from your brothers who dwell in their cities, between blood and blood, between law and commandment, statutes and ordinances, you must warn them, that they not be guilty toward Yahweh, and so wrath come on you and on your brothers. Do this, and you will not be guilty.
[11] Behold, Amariah the chief priest is over you in all matters of Yahweh; and Zebadiah the son of Ishmael, the ruler of the house of Judah, in all the king’s matters. Also the Levites shall be officers before you. Deal courageously, and may Yahweh be with the good.”

[1] And Jehoshaphat H3092 the king H4428 of Judah H3063 returned H7725 (8799) to his house H1004 in peace H7965 to Jerusalem H3389.
[2] And Jehu H3058 the son H1121 of Hanani H2607 the seer H2374 went out H3318 (8799) to meet H6440 him, and said H559 (8799) to king H4428 Jehoshaphat H3092, Shouldest thou help H5826 (8800) the ungodly H7563, and love H157 (8799) them that hate H8130 (8802) the LORD H3068? therefore H2063 [is] wrath H7110 upon thee from before H6440 the LORD H3068.
[3] Nevertheless H61 there are good H2896 things H1697 found H4672 (8738) in thee, in that thou hast taken away H1197 (8765) the groves H842 out of the land H776, and hast prepared H3559 (8689) thine heart H3824 to seek H1875 (8800) God H430.
[4] And Jehoshaphat H3092 dwelt H3427 (8799) at Jerusalem H3389: and he went out H3318 (8799) again H7725 (8799) through the people H5971 from Beersheba H884 to mount H2022 Ephraim H669, and brought them back H7725 (8686) unto the LORD H3068 God H430 of their fathers H1.
[5] And he set H5975 (8686) judges H8199 (8802) in the land H776 throughout all the fenced H1219 (8803) cities H5892 of Judah H3063, city H5892 by city H5892,
[6] And said H559 (8799) to the judges H8199 (8802), Take heed H7200 (8798) what ye do H6213 (8802): for ye judge H8199 (8799) not for man H120, but for the LORD H3068, who [is] with you in the judgment H1697 H4941.
[7] Wherefore now let the fear H6343 of the LORD H3068 be upon you; take heed H8104 (8798) and do H6213 (8798) [it]: for [there is] no iniquity H5766 with the LORD H3068 our God H430, nor respect H4856 of persons H6440, nor taking H4727 of gifts H7810.
[8] Moreover in Jerusalem H3389 did Jehoshaphat H3092 set H5975 (8689) of the Levites H3881, and [of] the priests H3548, and of the chief H7218 of the fathers H1 of Israel H3478, for the judgment H4941 of the LORD H3068, and for controversies H7379, when they returned H7725 (8799) to Jerusalem H3389.
[9] And he charged H6680 (8762) them, saying H559 (8800), Thus shall ye do H6213 (8799) in the fear H3374 of the LORD H3068, faithfully H530, and with a perfect H8003 heart H3824.
[10] And what cause H7379 soever shall come H935 (8799) to you of your brethren H251 that dwell H3427 (8802) in their cities H5892, between blood H1818 and blood H1818, between law H8451 and commandment H4687, statutes H2706 and judgments H4941, ye shall even warn H2094 (8689) them that they trespass H816 (8799) not against the LORD H3068, and [so] wrath H7110 come upon you, and upon your brethren H251: this H3541 do H6213 (8799), and ye shall not trespass H816 (8799).
[11] And, behold, Amariah H568 the chief H7218 priest H3548 [is] over you in all matters H1697 of the LORD H3068; and Zebadiah H2069 the son H1121 of Ishmael H3458, the ruler H5057 of the house H1004 of Judah H3063, for all the king’s H4428 matters H1697: also the Levites H3881 [shall be] officers H7860 (8802) before H6440 you. Deal H6213 (8798) courageously H2388 (8798), and the LORD H3068 shall be with the good H2896.

2 Chronicles 19 (YLT)

[1] And Jehoshaphat king of Judah turneth back unto his house in peace to Jerusalem,
[2] and go out unto his presence doth Jehu son of Hanani, the seer, and saith unto king Jehoshaphat, ‘To give help to the wicked, and to those hating Jehovah, dost thou love? and for this against thee is wrath from before Jehovah,
[3] but good things have been found with thee, for thou hast put away the shrines out of the land, and hast prepared thy heart to seek God.’
[4] And Jehoshaphat dwelleth in Jerusalem, and he turneth back and goeth out among the people from Beer-Sheba unto the hill-country of Ephraim, and bringeth them back unto Jehovah, God of their fathers.
[5] And he establisheth judges in the land, in all the fenced cities of Judah, for every city,
[6] and saith unto the judges, ‘See what ye are doing-for not for man do ye judge, but for Jehovah, who is with you in the matter of judgment;
[7] and now, let fear of Jehovah be upon you, observe and do, for there is not with Jehovah our God perverseness, and acceptance of faces, and taking of a bribe.’
[8] And also in Jerusalem hath Jehoshaphat appointed of the Levites, and of the priests, and of the heads of the fathers of Israel, for the judgment of Jehovah, and for strife; and they turn back to Jerusalem,
[9] and he layeth a charge upon them, saying, ‘Thus do ye do in the fear of Jehovah, in faithfulness, and with a perfect heart,
[10] and any strife that cometh in unto you of your brethren who are dwelling in their cities, between blood and blood, between law and command, statutes, and judgments, then ye have warned them and they become not guilty before Jehovah, and wrath hath not been on you and on your brethren; thus do ye do, and ye are not guilty.
[11] ‘And, lo, Amariah the head priest is over you for every matter of Jehovah, and Zebadiah son of Ishmael, the leader of the house of Judah, is for every matter of the king, and officers the Levites are before you; be strong and do, and Jehovah is with the good.’
