  • Jehoshaphat (alternately spelled Jehosaphat, Josaphat, or Yehoshafat) (Hebrew: יְהוֹשָ�?פָט, Standard Yəhošafat Tiberian Yəhôš�?p̄�?ṭ ; " Jehovah is the judge") was the successor of Asa, king of Judah. This king is not connected with the Valley of Jehosaphat, where, according to Joel 3:2, the God of Israel will gather all nations for judgment.

    "Jehoshaphat took heed to organize the administration of justice on a solid foundation, and was an honest worshiper of Yhwh" (Yahweh). He appears to be an exemplar of the "theory worked out in Chronicles that pious monarchs have always been the mightiest and most prosperous." ~The Jewish Encyclopedia
