In the nineteenth century, the printed word industry made a concerted effort to soften the crude language and swearing that had become prevalent in American culture. Authors began to incorporate “mild oaths” in their stories and reporting. Phrases such as “holy moly,” “gee whillikers,” and “heavens to Betsy” became common substitutes for more coarse alternatives. A favorite expression to denote surprise in this era was, “Jumpin’ Jehoshaphat!”
If you’re wondering what this literature lesson has to do with prayer, the passage we are reading today in 2 Chronicles features King Jehoshaphat, fourth king of Judah, circa 850 BC.
