Jahaziel in Wikipedia
Jahaziel or Chaziel the Levite was a prophet in the Hebrew
Bible. The name means "Beheld of God".
2 Chronicles 20 recounts a joint attack on Judah by the
nations of Moab, Ammon, and Edom in the time of King
Jehoshaphat. The King declared a fast to the LORD and prayed
for his help before the assembled nation.
Then the Spirit of the LORD came upon Jahaziel son of
Zechariah, the son of Benaiah, who declared the word of the
LORD, "The battle is not yours, but Godís", and concluding,
"Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. Go out to face them
tomorrow, and the LORD will be with you."
The next morning, Jehosaphat led his people out, calling them
to have faith in the LORD, and leading them in praise. They
saw their enemies turn on each other, and returned to
Jerusalem in joy. After that, the kingdom of Jehoshaphat was
at peace, for his God had given him rest on every side.
