help the ungodly
2 Chronicles 19:2
19:2 help the ungodly. Hanani, the father of the prophet Jehu, had issued a similar rebuke to Jehoshaphat’s father, King Asa (II Chronicles 16:7). The Lord is not pleased when believers join with unbelievers in spiritual ventures (II Corinthians 6:14-18). This confrontation seems to have been one motivating factor in the further reforms instituted by Jehoshaphat (II Chronicles 19:5-11).
