1 Kings 22:6
tn Heb “Should I go against Ramoth Gilead for war or should I refrain?”
tn Though Jehoshaphat requested an oracle from “the Lord” (יְהוָה, Yahweh), they stop short of actually using this name and substitute the title אֲדֹנָי (’adonai, “lord; master”). This ambiguity may explain in part Jehoshaphat’s hesitancy and caution (vv. 7–8). He seems to doubt that the four hundred are genuine prophets of the Lord.
