2 Chronicles 20:35–37 (Listen)
The End of Jehoshaphat’s Reign
35 After this Jehoshaphat king of Judah joined with Ahaziah king of Israel, who acted wickedly. 36 He joined him in building ships to go to Tarshish, and they built the ships in Ezion-geber. 37 Then Eliezer the son of Dodavahu of Mareshah prophesied against Jehoshaphat, saying, “Because you have joined with Ahaziah, the LORD will destroy what you have made.” And the ships were wrecked and were not able to go to Tarshish.
Hymn: TLH 479, st. 2,3 :
Zion, Rise, Zion, Rise
2. Bear the cross, bear the cross.
Zion, till thy latest breath
Bear the cross of scorn and jeering
And be faithful unto death;
See the crown of life appearing.
Zion, count all other things as loss.
Bear the cross! Bear the cross!
3. Watch and pray, watch and pray!
Zion, ever watch and pray
Lest the wicked world misguide thee
From the narrow path to stray
And thy God reprove and chide thee.
Zion, work with zeal while it is day.
Watch and pray, watch and pray!
