1 Kings 22:4b

(NIV1984) 1 Kings 22:4b – “Jehoshaphat replied to the king of Israel, ‘I am as you are, my people as your people, my horses as your horses.'”

This last bit makes me wonder if they became allies during or after the drought.  I mean, the horses were really important to Ahab, after all.

Anyway, this is an interesting thing for Jehoshaphat to say to Ahab.  He’s basically putting himself in Ahab’s hands.  I mean, they’re in-laws – political ally in-laws – so they have to trust each other to some degree, but – in this he’s basically making himself one with Ahab.

And as interesting a character as Ahab is in this story, Jehoshaphat is just as interesting, if not more so.
