Jehoshaphat king of Judah agrees with Ahab king of Israel to go against Syria to regain back the region of Ramoth Gilead. They consult prophets whether to go for the war and they all give them a go ahead save for the prophet of God Micaiah who foretells them their defeat. Prophet Micaiah is slapped and imprisoned. It so happens that King Ahab dies in battle and his blood licked by the dogs as prophesied by prophet Elijah.This portion of scripture teaches us that God's word will always come to pass no matter how long it takes and that God does not tolerate sin but executes justice. Psalms 146:7 says God executes judgement to the oppressed, gives food to the hungry and looses prisoners.
