In these verse we have an account of a remarkable itinerant ministry established by Jehoshaphat, in which three classes of men were employed:
1. The Princes
2. The Levites
3. The Priests
We may presume that the Princes instructed the people in the nature of the civil law and constitution of the kingdom; that the Levites instructed them in every thing that appertained to the temple service, and ritual law; and that the Priests instructed them in the nature and design of their religion. Thus the nation became thoroughly instructed in their duty to God, to the king, and to each other; they therefore became as one man; and against a people thus united, on such principles, no enemy could be successful. "Behold, I have taught you statutes and judgments, even as the LORD my God commanded me, that ye should do so in the land whither ye go to possess it." {Deu 4:5} + "Come, ye children, hearken unto me: I will teach you the fear of the LORD." {Psa 34:11} + "[Then] will I teach transgressors thy ways; and sinners shall be converted unto thee." {Psa 51:13} + "I the Preacher was king over Israel in Jerusalem." {Ecc 1:12} + "And moreover, because the preacher was wise, he still taught the people knowledge; yea, he gave good heed, and sought out, [and] set in order many proverbs. ... The preacher sought to find out acceptable words: and [that which was] written [was] upright, [even] words of truth." {Ecc 12:9-10} + "And kings shall be thy nursing fathers, and their queens thy nursing mothers: they shall bow down to thee with [their] face toward the earth, and lick up the dust of thy feet; and thou shalt know that I [am] the LORD: for they shall not be ashamed that wait for me." {Isa 49:23}
to teach:
"Now for a long season Israel [hath been] without the true God, and without a teaching priest, and without law." {2Ch 15:3} + "And Hezekiah spake comfortably unto all the Levites that taught the good knowledge of the LORD: and they did eat throughout the feast seven days, offering peace offerings, and making confession to the LORD God of their fathers." {2Ch 30:22} + "And said unto the Levites that taught all Israel, which were holy unto the LORD, Put the holy ark in the house which Solomon the son of David king of Israel did build; [it shall] not [be] a burden upon [your] shoulders: serve now the LORD your God, and his people Israel," {2Ch 35:3} + "They shall teach Jacob thy judgments, and Israel thy law: they shall put incense before thee, and whole burnt sacrifice upon thine altar." {Deu 33:10} + "Also Jeshua, and Bani, and Sherebiah, Jamin, Akkub, Shabbethai, Hodijah, Maaseiah, Kelita, Azariah, Jozabad, Hanan, Pelaiah, and the Levites, caused the people to understand the law: and the people [stood] in their place. ... So they read in the book in the law of God distinctly, and gave the sense, and caused [them] to understand the reading." {Neh 8:7-8} + "And on the second day were gathered together the chief of the fathers of all the people, the priests, and the Levites, unto Ezra the scribe, even to understand the words of the law. ... And they found written in the law which the LORD had commanded by Moses, that the children of Israel should dwell in booths in the feast of the seventh month:" {Neh 8:13-14} + "And they stood up in their place, and read in the book of the law of the LORD their God [one] fourth part of the day; and [another] fourth part they confessed, and worshipped the LORD their God." {Neh 9:3} + "And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people." {Mtt 4:23} + "And he taught them many things by parables, and said unto them in his doctrine," {Mrk 4:2} + "And he said unto them, I must preach the kingdom of God to other cities also: for therefore am I sent. ... And he preached in the synagogues of Galilee." {Lke 4:43-44} + "The former treatise have I made, O Theophilus, of all that Jesus began both to do and teach," {Act 1:1} - Cross Reference Bible Search
