My wife, Lori, and I are reading through the Bible in chronological order, which is the order in which the events happened. Her blog on this can be found here. This is not intended to be a lesson or a sermon. It is my thoughts and notes as I read through the text and as I sometimes look things up. Today we read 1 Kings 22, 2 Chronicles 18.

1 Kings 22

Jehoshaphat the king of Judah came to Ahab the king of Israel. Ahab asked Jehoshaphat to join their armies together to fight against the king of Aram. Jehoshaphat was willing, but he wanted to know what the prophets of the Lord said. There was only one prophet of the Lord remaining in Israel, Micaiah, and he always prophesied bad things for Ahab.

At first Micaiah told Ahab to go against the king of Aram and succeed. When pressed,

19 Micaiah said, “Therefore, hear the word of the Lord. I saw the Lord sitting on His throne, and all the host of heaven standing by Him on His right and on His left. 20 “The Lord said, ‘Who will entice Ahab to go up and fall at Ramoth-gilead?’ And one said this while another said that. 21 Then a spirit came forward and stood before the Lord and said, ‘I will entice him.’ 22 The Lord said to him, ‘How?’ And he said, ‘I will go out and be a deceiving spirit in the mouth of all his prophets.’ Then He said, ‘You are to entice him and also prevail. Go and do so.’23 Now therefore, behold, the Lord has put a deceiving spirit in the mouth of all these your prophets; and the Lord has proclaimed disaster against you.””

Ahab didn’t believe him and went with the king of Judah against Aram.

Ahab was disguised so the Arameans didn’t recognize him, but still an archer stuck Ahab and he died that evening. The dogs licked his blood.

Ahaziah the son of Ahab became king for two years. He did evil in the sight of the Lord.

2 Chronicles 18

This is a repeat of 1 Kings 22.
