1 KINGS 22:11-29
22:11 And Zedekiah the son of Chenaanah made for himself horns of iron; and he said, Thus says Jehovah, With these you will push the Syrians until you have destroyed them.
22:12 And all the prophets prophesied so, saying, Go up to Ramoth-gilead, and succeed; for Jehovah will deliver it into the king’s hand.
22:13 And the messenger who went to call Micaiah spoke to him, saying, See, the words of the prophets, being of one accord, seem good to the king. Let your word, I beg you, be like the word of one of them, and speak good.
22:14 And Micaiah said, As Jehovah lives, that which Jehovah says to me, that will I speak.
22:15 And when he came to the king, the king said to him, Micaiah, shall we go against Ramoth-gilead to battle, or shall we refrain? And he said to him, Go up, and succeed; for Jehovah will deliver it into the hand of the king.
22:16 And the king said to him, How many times shall I adjure you to tell me nothing but the truth in the name of Jehovah?
22:17 And he said, I saw all Israel scattered upon the mountains, like sheep that have no shepherd. And Jehovah said, These have no master; let each of them return to his house in peace.
22:18 And the king of Israel said to Jehoshaphat, Did I not tell you that he prophesies no good concerning me, but evil?
22:19 And Micaiah said, Hear therefore the word of Jehovah, I saw Jehovah sitting upon His throne, and all the host of heaven standing by Him, on His right hand and on His left.
22:20 And Jehovah said, Who shall entice Ahab, that he may go up and fall at Ramoth-gilead? And one said after this manner, and another said after that manner.
22:21 And there came forth a certain spirit and stood before Jehovah and said, I will entice him.
22:22 And Jehovah said unto him, How? And he said, I will go forth and be a lying spirit in the mouth of all his prophets. And He said, You shall entice him and surely prevail. Go forth, and do so.
22:23 So now Jehovah has put a lying spirit in the mouth of all these your prophets, and Jehovah has spoken evil concerning you.
22:24 Then Zedekiah the son of Chenaanah approached and struck Micaiah upon the cheek and said, Which way did the Spirit of Jehovah pass from me to speak to you?
22:25 And Micaiah said, You will see on that day when you go from room to room to hide yourself.
22:26 And the king of Israel said, Take Micaiah and carry him back to Amon the governor of the city and to Joash the king’s son.
22:27 And you shall say, Thus says the king, Put this man in prison, and feed him with the bread of affliction and with the water of affliction, until I come in peace.
22:28 And Micaiah said, If you return in peace at all, Jehovah has not spoken by me. And he said, Listen, O peoples, all of you!
22:29 And the king of Israel and Jehoshaphat the king of Judah went up to Ramoth-gilead.
