31  And Jehoshaphat reigned over Judah; he was thirty and five years old when he began to reign; and he reigned twenty and five years in Jerusalem; and his mother's name was Azubah the daughter of Shilhi.

31  And Josaphat reigned over Juda, being thirty-five years old when he began to reign, and he reigned twenty-five years in Jerusalem: and his mother’s name was Azuba, daughter of Sali.

31  And so Jehoshaphat reigned over Judah. And he was thirty-five years old when he had begun to reign. Then he reigned for twenty-five years in Jerusalem. And the name of his mother was Azubah, the daughter of Shilhi.

32  And he walked in the way of Asa his father, and turned not aside from it, doing that which was right in the eyes of YHWH.

33  Howbeit the high places were not taken away; neither as yet had the people set their hearts unto the God of their fathers.

34  Now the rest of the acts of Jehoshaphat, first and last, behold, they are written in the words of Jehu the son of Hanani, which is inserted in the book of the kings of Israel.

34  But the rest of the acts of Jehoshaphat, the first and the last, have been written in the words of Jehu, the son of Hanani, which he digested into the books of the kings of Israel.

35  And after this did Jehoshaphat king of Judah join himself with Ahaziah king of Israel; the same did very wickedly;

35  And afterwards Josaphat king of Juda entered into an alliance with Ochozias king of Israel, (now this was an unrighteous man,)

35  After these things, Jehoshaphat, the king of Judah, formed a friendship with Ahaziah, the king of Israel, whose works were very impious.

36  and he joined him with himself to make ships to go to Tarshish; and they made the ships in Ezion-geber.

36  by acting with and going to him, to build ships to go to Tharsis: and he built ships in Gasion Gaber.

36  And he was a partner in the making of ships, which would go to Tarshish. And they made the fleet at Eziongeber.

37  Then Eliezer the son of Dodavahu of Mareshah prophesied against Jehoshaphat, saying: 'Because thou hast joined thyself with Ahaziah, YHWH hath made a breach in thy works.' And the ships were broken, that they were not able to go to Tarshish.

37  And Eliezer the son of Dodia of Marisa prophesied against Josaphat, saying, Forasmuch as thou hast allied thyself with Ochozias, the Lord has broken thy work, and thy vessels have been wrecked. And they could not go to Tharsis.

37  Then Eliezer, the son of Dodavahu, from Mareshah, prophesied to Jehoshaphat, saying: “Because you have made a pact with Ahaziah, the Lord has struck your works, and the ships have been broken, and they have not been able to go to Tarshish.”

21:1  And Jehoshaphat slept with his fathers, and was buried with his fathers in the city of David; and Jehoram his son reigned in his stead.

And Josaphat slept with his fathers, and was buried in the city of David: and Joran his son reigned in his stead.

Then Jehoshaphat slept with his fathers, and he was buried with them in the City of David. And his son, Jehoram, reigned in his place.
