Chapter CONTEXT from MHCC: We have here, I. The great danger and distress that Jehoshaphat and his kingdom were in from a foreign invasion (v. 1, 2). II. The pious course he took for their safety, by fasting, and praying, and seeking God (v. 3-13). III. The assurance which God, by a prophet, immediately gave them of victory (v. 14-17). IV. Their thankful believing reception of those assurances (v. 18-21). V. The defeat which God gave to their enemies thereupon (v. 22-25). VI. A solemn thanksgiving which they kept for their victory, and for a happy consequences of it (v. 26-30). VII. The conclusion of the reign of Jehoshaphat, not without some blemishes (v. 31-37).
Whenever there is danger or confusion about which we are unsure how to proceed we need to be like Jehoshaphat and focus our prayers and eyes on God.
