17  UJehoshafati+ indodana yakhe waqala ukubusa esikhundleni sakhe nokuqinisa isikhundla sakhe phezu kuka-Israyeli.  Wabeka amabutho empi kuyo yonke imizi enezivikelo eziqinile yakwaJuda wabeka nezikaniso zamabutho ezweni lakwaJuda nasemizini yakwa-Efrayimi u-Asa uyise ayeyithumbile.+  UJehova waqhubeka enoJehoshafati,+ ngoba wahamba ezindleleni zangaphambili zikaDavide ukhokho wakhe+ futhi akazange afune oBhali.+  Ngoba wafuna uNkulunkulu kayise+ futhi wahamba ngomyalo wakhe,+ akenzanga ngokwesenzo sika-Israyeli.+  UJehova wagcina umbuso wakhe umi uqinile esandleni sakhe,+ futhi wonke uJuda waqhubeka enika uJehoshafati izipho,+ waba nengcebo nenkazimulo ngokuchichimayo.+  Inhliziyo yakhe yaba nesibindi ezindleleni+ zikaJehova, wasusa ngisho nezindawo eziphakeme+ nezigxobo ezingcwele+ kwaJuda.  Ngonyaka wesithathu wokubusa kwakhe wathumela ukuba kubizwe izikhulu zakhe, okungukuthi, uBheni-hayili no-Obadiya noZakariya noNethaneli noMikhaya, ukuba bafundise emizini yakwaJuda,  wathuma kanye nabo amaLevi, uShemaya noNethaniya noZebadiya no-Asaheli noShemiramoti noJehonathani no-Adoniya noThobija noThobi-adoniya amaLevi, no-Elishama noJehoramu abapristi kanye nabo.+  Baqala ukufundisa+ kwaJuda, babephethe incwadi yomthetho kaJehova;+ futhi babelokhu bezungeza kuyo yonke imizi yakwaJuda befundisa phakathi kwabantu. 10  Ingebhe+ kaJehova yaba phezu kwayo yonke imibuso yamazwe eyayizungeze uJuda, futhi ayizange ilwe noJehoshafati.+ 11  Babeletha izipho kuJehoshafati+ nemali njengenkokhiso+ kuvela kumaFilisti. Ama-Arabhu+ nawo ayeletha kuye imihlambi, izinqama eziyizinkulungwane eziyisikhombisa namakhulu ayisikhombisa nezimpongo eziyizinkulungwane eziyisikhombisa namakhulu ayisikhombisa.+ 12  UJehoshafati waqhubeka ethuthuka futhi ekhula eba mkhulu+ ngezinga eliphakeme; waqhubeka akha izindawo ezinezivikelo eziqinile+ nemizi yokugcina izinto+ kwaJuda. 13  Futhi waba nemisebenzi eminingi emizini yakwaJuda; amaqhawe,+ amadoda anamandla,+ anesibindi ayeseJerusalema. 14  Lezi kwakuyizikhundla zawo ngokwendlu yokhokho bawo: KwaJuda izinduna zezinkulungwane, u-Adinahi induna, kanye naye kwakukhona amadoda anamandla, angamaqhawe ayizinkulungwane ezingamakhulu amathathu.+ 15  Ngaphansi kokulawula kwakhe kwakukhona uJehohanani induna, kanye naye kwakukhona izinkulungwane ezingamakhulu amabili namashumi ayisishiyagalombili. 16  Ngaphansi kokulawula kwakhe kwakukhona u-Amasiya indodana kaZikiri isisebenzi sokuzithandela+ sikaJehova, kanye naye kwakukhona amadoda ayizinkulungwane ezingamakhulu amabili anamandla, amaqhawe. 17  KwaBhenjamini+ kwakukhona indoda enamandla, eyiqhawe, u-Eliyada, kanye nayo kwakukhona amadoda ahlome ngomnsalo nangesihlangu ayizinkulungwane ezingamakhulu amabili.+ 18  Ngaphansi kokulawula kwakhe kwakukhona uJehozabhadi, kanye naye kwakukhona amadoda ahlonyiselwe impi ayizinkulungwane eziyikhulu namashumi ayisishiyagalombili. 19  Laba yibo ababekhonza inkosi ngaphandle kwalabo inkosi eyababeka emizini enezivikelo eziqinile+ kulo lonke elakwaJuda.
