Sing the Victory

by on August 31, 2015

‘You will not need to fight in this battle.
Position yourselves, stand still and see the salvation of the LORD, who is with you,
O Judah and Jerusalem!’
Do not fear or be dismayed; tomorrow go out against them, for the LORD is with you.”
And Jehoshaphat bowed his head with his face to the ground,
And all Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem bowed before the LORD,
Worshiping the LORD.

Then the Levites of the children of the Kohathites and of the children of the Korahites stood up to praise the LORD God of Israel with voices loud and high.
So they rose early in the morning and went out into the Wilderness of Tekoa;
And as they went out,

Jehoshaphat stood and said,

“Hear me, O Judah and you inhabitants of Jerusalem:
Believe in the LORD your God, and you shall be established;
Believe His prophets, and you shall prosper.”

And when he had consulted with the people,
He appointed those who should sing to the LORD, and
Who should praise the beauty of holiness,
As they went out before the army and were saying:
“Praise the LORD, For His mercy endures forever.”

Now when they began to sing and to praise,
The LORD set ambushes against the people of Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir,
Who had come against Judah;
And they were defeated.

II Chronicles 20:17-22
