Also in the third year of his reign he sent to his princes, even to Benhail, and to Obadiah, and to Zechariah, and to Nethaneel, and to Michaiah, to teach in the cities of Judah. And with them he sent Levites; Shemaiah, and Nethaniah, and Zebadiah, and Asahel, and Shemiramoth, and Jehonathan, and Adonijah, and Tobijah, and Tobadonijah, Levites; and with them Elishama and Jehoram, priests.
And they taught in Judah, and had the book of the law of the LORD with them, and went about throughout all the cities of Judah, and taught the people. And the fear of the LORD fell upon all the kingdoms of the lands that were round about Judah, so that they made no war against Jehoshaphat.” 2 Chronicles 17:7-10 (KJB)

ON A SIDE NOTE:
We the people of the United States are celebrating 244 years as a nation, and I pray all who come here today, and those who are citizens of the United States of America will remember the God of this nation. He is the Creator of all that is, the seen and the unseen.
I thank Him for His word, and His work in this nation and the nations of this world. He sent His Son Jesus Christ to die for our sins, and He died on that cruel old cross, was buried, and He came out of the grave alive. The only hope for the U. S. of A. and any nation is to turn from your sins and rebellion against God and His word, and trust the Lord Jesus Christ as your Savior, Lord and God.
