Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

April 24 - Evening

"Jehoshaphat said,
'The word of the Lord is with him.'

So the king of Israel and Jehoshaphat and the king of Edom went down to him.

Elisha said to the king of Israel,
'Why do you want to involve me? Go to the prophets of your father and the prophets of your mother.'

the king of Israel answered,
'because it was the Lord who called us three kings together to deliver us into the hands of Moab.'

Elisha said,
'As surely as the Lord Almighty lives, whom I serve,
if I did not have respect for the presence of Jehoshaphat king of Judah, I would not pay any attention to you.
But now bring me a harpist.'

While the harpist was playing,
the hand of the Lord came on Elisha."

- Second Kings 3:12-15

Elisha Called to Help Israel, Judah and Edom vs. Moab    

Mesha, the king of Moab, stopped paying his tribute to Israel after Ahab died, so the king of Israel, Joram (Ahab's second son to rule) went to war against Moab with his allies: Jehoshaphat, the king of Judah, and the king of Edom

When the troops of Israel and Judah run out of water in the wilderness of Edom Jehoshaphat asks to inquire of the Lord, YHWH. One of the troops has heard of Elisha and his association with the former prophet Elijah, and Jehoshaphat approves.

Elisha sarcastically greets the pagan king Joram of Israel and insults this son of Baal worshippers Ahab and Jezebel and their god.

But, Joram, king of Israel, replies that they called Elisha because it was his God, YHWH, who was trying to kill them here in the Edom wilderness, not Baal, the god of the storms and rain. Clearly, part of the Baal theology was polytheism (many gods) and not monotheism (one God, like the religion of true Israel and the Mosaic Law)

Elisha agrees to help because Jehosophat, a true worshipper of the Lord, is present. Elisha asks for a harp player who will play music while Elisha enters into the presence of his God and receives a supernatural utterance. The use of harpists and music to receive prophetic utterances while in an ecstatic state was a common practice at this time in the history of the Near East. (See details on MAP HERE.)

Elisha receives an answer that will both alleviate the need for water and cause the defeat of Moab. (See 2 Kings 3:14-27) (Also, the Moabite stone records similar details here and here)

Hebrew and Greek Word Study   Facts and Information

Kubernesis (Gr) – Governments (Eng) – kybernesis is Greek word that comes from the Greek word kubernao, meaning “steer.” In classical Greek kubernesis referred to piloting a ship and was
used to refer to governing. It is used only in 1 Corinthians 12:28 and
is translated at “gifts of administration” in the NIV.


Numbers 13:22 mentions the Egyptian city of Zoan as being built seven years after the city of Hebron. Zoan was a royal Egyptian store city. Today it is called San el-Hagar. The Hyksos kings made Zoan their capital until its fall in 1580 BC to the new Pharaoh Amosis (notice “-mosis” or the source of the name “-moses” in the name given to an adopted prince we know as Moses). Excavations at Zoan have revealed statues, sphinxes and a very large temple with a stele with the name Rameses and the fragments of the largest colossus of an individual ever known –
a 92 foot tall Rameses.
