Although it was noted that Asa followed the Lord all his life chapter 16 records his sin of relying on the king of Aram rather than God. When this was announced to Asa he was angry and imprisoned the seer and “Asa brutally oppressed some of the people.” After Asa came Jehoshaphat, whose “heart was devoted to the ways of the LORD; furthermore, he removed the high places and the Asherah poles from Judah” (17:6). Those Asherah poles are like weeds, after every reign they need to be pulled up again.

Chapter 18 records how Ahab of Israel and Jehoshaphat king of Judah went up to Ramoth Gilead to fight the Arameans. Jehoshaphat insisted that they inquire of a prophet what the result would be and Micaiah son of Imlah declared victory for the enemy. Ahab ordered him locked up until he returned safely but he was killed in battle.
