1 KINGS 22:30-50
22:30 And the king of Israel said to Jehoshaphat, I will disguise myself and enter into the battle; but you put on your robes. And the king of Israel disguised himself and went into the battle.
22:31 And the king of Syria commanded the thirty-two captains of his chariots, saying, Fight neither with small nor great, but with the king of Israel only.
22:32 And when the captains of the chariots saw Jehoshaphat, they said, Surely this is the king of Israel. And they turned against him to fight, and Jehoshaphat cried out.
22:33 And when the captains of the chariots perceived that he was not the king of Israel, they turned back from pursuing him.
22:34 And a man drew a bow at random and hit the king of Israel between the scale armor and the breastplate. And the king of Israel said to his charioteer, Turn your hand, and drive me out of the camp; for I am wounded.
22:35 And the battle increased that day; and the king was propped up in his chariot before the Syrians, and he died in the evening; and the blood of the wound ran out into the hollow of the chariot.
22:36 And the cry went throughout the army at the going down of the sun, saying, Every man to his city, and every man to his own land!
22:37 And the king died and was brought to Samaria. And they buried the king in Samaria.
22:38 And someone washed the chariot by the pool of Samaria; and the dogs licked his blood where the harlots bathed, according to the word of Jehovah, which He had spoken.
22:39 And the rest of the acts of Ahab and all that he did and the ivory house that he built and all the cities that he built, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Israel?
22:40 And Ahab slept with his fathers; and Ahaziah his son reigned in his place.
22:41 And Jehoshaphat the son of Asa began to reign over Judah in the fourth year of Ahab the king of Israel.
22:42 Jehoshaphat was thirty-five years old when he began to reign, and he reigned twenty-five years in Jerusalem; and his mother’s name was Azubah, the daughter of Shilhi.
22:43 And he walked in all the way of Asa his father; he turned not aside from it, doing what was right in the sight of Jehovah. Nevertheless the high places were not removed; the people offered sacrifices and burned incense still on the high places.
22:44 And Jehoshaphat made peace with the king of Israel.
22:45 And the rest of the acts of Jehoshaphat and his might that he showed and how he warred, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Judah?
22:46 And the remainder of the male cult prostitutes, which were left in the days of his father Asa, he put away from out of the land.
22:47 And there was no king in Edom; a deputy was king.
22:48 Jehoshaphat made ships of Tarshish to go to Ophir for gold; but they did not go, for the ships were wrecked at Ezion-geber.
22:49 Then Ahaziah the son of Ahab said to Jehoshaphat, Let my servants go with your servants in the ships. But Jehoshaphat was not willing.
22:50 And Jehoshaphat slept with his fathers and was buried with his fathers in the city of David his father; and Jehoram his son reigned in his place.
