Bible: 2 Chronicles 17:3-6

17:3 The Lord was with Jehoshaphat because he followed in his ancestor 1  David’s footsteps at the beginning of his reign. 2  He did not seek the Baals, 17:4 but instead sought the God of his ancestors 3  and obeyed 4  his commands, unlike the Israelites. 5  17:5 The Lord made his kingdom secure; 6  all Judah brought tribute to Jehoshaphat, and he became very wealthy and greatly respected. 7  17:6 He was committed to following the Lord; 8  he even removed the high places and Asherah poles from Judah.
