And Jehoshaphat stood in the congregation of Judah and Jerusalem,
in the house of Yahweh,before the new court,
6 And said, O Yahweh Elohim of our fathers, art not thou Elohim in heaven?
and rulest not thou over all the kingdoms of the heathen?
and in thine hand is there not power and might,
so that none is able to withstand thee?
7 Art not thou our Elohim, who didst drive out the inhabitants of this land before thy people Israel,
and gavest it to the seed of Abraham thy friend for ever?
8 And they dwelt therein, and have built thee a sanctuary therein for thy name, saying,
9 If, when evil cometh upon us, as the sword, judgment, or pestilence, or famine,
we stand before this house, and in thy presence,
(for thy name is in this house,) and cry unto thee in our affliction, then thou wilt hear and help.
