SEV Biblia, Chapter 18:1 Â¶ Tenía, pues , Josafat riquezas y gloria en abundancia, y juntó parentesco con Acab.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Chronicles 18:1 Verse 1. Jehoshaphat had riches and honour] The preceding chapter gives ample proof of this.
Joined affinity with Ahab.] Took his daughter Athalia to be wife to his son Joram.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 1. Now Jehoshaphat had riches and honour in abundance , etc.] Still more and more, (see 2 Chronicles 17:5), and which moved Ahab to desire friendship and affinity with him, to which Jehoshaphat agreed: and joined affinity with Ahab ; king of Israel, married his son Joram to Athaliah, a daughter of Ahab by Jezebel of Zidon; which marriage proved of bad consequence to Jehoshaphat and his family.
Matthew Henry Commentary Jehoshaphat's alliance with Ahab.
--This history we read in 1Ki 22. Abundant riches and honour give larg opportunities of doing good, but they are attended with many snares an temptations. Men do not know much of the artifices of Satan and the deceitfulness of their own hearts, when they covet riches with the ide of being able to do good with them. What can hurt those whom God wil protect? What can shelter those whom God will destroy? Jehoshaphat i safe in his robes, Ahab killed in his armour; for the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong. We should be cautious of entangling ourselves in the worldly undertakings of evil men; and stil more we should avoid engaging in their sinful projects. But, when the call upon him, God can and will bring his faithful people out of the difficulties and dangers into which they have sinfully run themselves He has all hearts in his hand, so that he easily rescues them. Blesse is the man that putteth his trust in the Lord __________________________________________________________________
