2 Chronicles 20:15-18

JLB  This may seem like a strange centre but I think the point is that they still had to go to the battle, and trust that the LORD would help them.

F. (14) Then upon Jahaziel the son of Zechariah, the son of Benaiah, the son of Jeiel, the son of Mattaniah, a Levite of the sons of Asaph, came the Spirit of the Lord in the midst of the congregation; (15) And he said, Hearken ye, all Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem,

E. and thou king Jehoshaphat,

D. Thus saith the LORD unto you,

C. Be not afraid nor dismayed by reason of this great multitude;

B. for the battle is not yours, but God’s.

A.(16) To morrow go ye down against them:behold, they come up by the cliff of Ziz; and ye shall find them at the end of the brook, before the wilderness of Jeruel.

B’.(17) Ye shall not need to fight in this battle: set yourselves, stand ye still, and see the salvation of the LORD with you, O Judah and Jerusalem:

C’. fear not, nor be dismayed; to morrow go out against them:

D’. for the LORD will be with you.

E’.(18) And Jehoshaphat bowed his head with his face to the ground:

F’. and all Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem fell before the LORD, worshipping the LORD.

One thought on “2 Chronicles 20:15-18”

  1. I would make verse 14 G, and add verse 19 at the end as G’. So G would be Jahaziel the Levite, and G’ would be the Levites standing to praise YHWH.
