stood before the LORD
2 Chronicles 18:20
18:20 stood before the LORD. This scene evidently parallels that of Job 1:6, “when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD.” Both the holy angels and the fallen angels, including Satan, were there in God’s presence. So it seems to be here, the host of heaven “standing on his right hand and on his left” (II Chronicles 18:18) apparently includes both God’s ministering spirits and the lying spirits.
