Bible commentary

Discussion for 2 Chronicles 18

  • A disciple
    Peter; Jehoshaphat's story shines light on a part of certain weak character tendencies, and makes me grieved about how easily I fail in similar ways. Why did he do all that? And why did he never seem to learn, that the enemies of the Lord are not "as his people!" His lack of good judgment caused terrible disaster for generations after him; which almost put out the Light of the house of David.
  • Peter A. Okebukola
    Jehoshaphat met his Waterloo in Ramothgilead. He did not believe in God's Word. We must always believe in the Words of God and do as He directs to avoid trouble.
