TH ESE words were spoken by Ahab, king of Israel, to Jehoshaphat, king of Judah. The person respected was Micaiah, a prophet of the Lord, who, at the desire of Jehoshaphat, was called to be enquired of, as to the success of a proposed military expedition, with their united forces. The circumstances are thus given in the context:

“Now Jehoshaphat had riches and honors, in abundance, and joined affinity with Ahab. And, after certain years, he went down to Ahab, to Samaria; and Ahab killed sheep and oxen for him, in abundance, and for the people that he had with him ; and persuaded him to go up with him to Ramoth-gilead. And Ahab, king of Israel, said unto Jehoshaphat, king of Judah : Wilt thou go with me to Ramoth-gilead : And he answered, I am as thou art ; and my people as thy people ; and we will be with thee in the war. And Jehoshaphat said unto the king of Israel, En4uire, I pray thee, at the word of the Lord to day.
