Quotes to Consider:
Alfred Edersheim: "...undertakings, however
well-planned and apparently unattended by outward danger, can only end
in disappointment and failure, when they who are the children of God
combine with those who walk in the ways of sin."
Matthew Henry: "I do not wonder that Ahab
should desire the assistance of so pious and prosperous a neighbour.
Even bad men have often coveted the friendship of the good. It is
desirable to have an interest in those that have an interest in
heaven, and to have those with us that have God with them. But it is
strange that Jehoshaphat will go so entirely into Ahab’s interests as
to say, I am as thou art, and my people as thy people. I hope not;
Jehoshaphat and his people are not so wicked and corrupt as Ahab and
his people. Too great a complaisance to evildoers has brought many
good people, through unwariness, into a dangerous fellowship with
unfruitful works of darkness ..."
