2 Chr 18:16  Then [Micaiah] said, “I saw all Israel scattered on the mountains, as sheep that have no shepherd. And the LORD said, ‘These have no master. Let each return to his house in peace.’ “ This chapter describes the story of when Ahab, king of Israel, and Jehoshaphat, king of Judah, go to […]
