And Jehu the son of Hanani the seer went out to meet him, and said to king Jehoshaphat, Shouldest thou help the ungodly, and love them that hate the LORD? therefore is wrath upon thee from before the LORD.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

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).
