1 Kings 22
Ahab persuadeth Jehoshaphat to go with him against Ramoth-gilead. Jehoshaphat proposing to enquire of the Lord, the false prophets assure Ahab of success. At Jehoshaphat's request Micaiah is sent for: who foretelleth Ahab's death, and sheweth that his false prophets were possessed by a lying spirit. He is ill treated, and sent to prison. Ahab goeth in disguise to the battle. Jehoshaphat being mistaken for Ahab narrowly escapeth being slain. Ahab is killed by an arrow shot at a venture: the people are dispersed by proclamation. Dogs lick up Ahab's blood, according to Elijah's prophecy. The acts of Ahab, who is succeeded by Ahaziah. Jehoshaphat's good reign: his acts. Jehoshaphat dieth, and is succeeded by Jehoram. Ahaziah's wicked reign.
