King Jehoshaphat of Judea

Sort by:
King Jehoshaphat of Judea: Son of King Asa. Reigned from 737-714 BCE. He was a righteous, G-d-fearing king; he sent scholars throughout Judea to teach the people Torah. During much of his prosperous reign, the neighboring kingdoms brought him tributes. Disregarding the prophecy of Miciah ben Imla, Jehoshaphat joined the Israelite king Ahab to fight against the Aramites, and was defeated. He later joined Ahab's successor, Jehoram, to battle the Moabites. As the prophet Elisha predicted, the Judean-Israelite armies succeeded in vanquishing the Moabites. Shortly afterwards, a confederation of neighboring nations threatened to attack Jerusalem. Jehoshaphat declared a national day of prayer. The would-be invaders turned on each other, and the Judeans were saved.
