Then said Ahaziah the son of Ahab unto Jehoshaphat, Let my servants go with thy servants in the ships. But Jehoshaphat would not.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

22:49 Jehoshaphat would not. Although Jehoshaphat had agreed on a joint ship-building project with wicked King Ahab (II Chronicles 20:35-36), he apparently balked at allowing Ahab’s servants to join his own servants as crewmen on the ship. The prophet Eliezer prophesied against even the ship-building agreement itself, however, with the result that the ships were all destroyed in a storm (II Chronicles 20:37), so that the entire project was abandoned.
