Our God, will you not judge them? For we have no might against this great company that comes against us, nor do we know what to do, but our eyes are on you.” Bible other translations

“Our God, will you not judge them?” Notice that Jehoshaphat does not ask for a victory in a military battle, he asks for vindication from Yahweh. This could well be why Yahweh fought this battle while the people of Judah sang his praise. However, his statement about not having military might is interesting because he did have a well-prepared army (2 Chron. 17:12-18), and small armies with God’s help had defeated large armies many times before.
