2 Chronicles Chapter 21
12 And there came a writing to him from Elijah the prophet, saying, Thus saith the LORD God of David thy father, Because thou hast not walked in the ways of Jehoshaphat thy father, nor in the ways of Asa king of Judah,
13 But hast walked in the way of the kings of Israel, and hast made Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem to go a whoring, like to the whoredoms of the house of Ahab, and also hast slain thy brethren of thy father's house, which were better than thyself:
17 And they came up into Judah, and brake into it, and carried away all the substance that was found in the king's house, and his sons also, and his wives; so that there was never a son left him, save Jehoahaz, the youngest of his sons.
19 And it came to pass, that in process of time, after the end of two years, his bowels fell out by reason of his sickness: so he died of sore diseases. And his people made no burning for him, like the burning of his fathers.
20 Thirty and two years old was he when he began to reign, and he reigned in Jerusalem eight years, and departed without being desired. Howbeit they buried him in the city of David, but not in the sepulchres of the kings.

Jehoshaphat was seduced by a deceitful spirit into giving his son Joram in marriage into the house of Ahab, the hater of the LORD. And although Jehoshaphat himself eventually received the rebuke from the LORD and amended his ways; the effects of that sin was that devil was allowed entrance and nearly put out the light of the house of David. In fact in Matthew 1 there are three generations deleted!

Ren; you may find interesting and helpful Adultery in Exodus 20:14; Matt. 5:27-28 etc. means Apostasy; and so figuratively, Idolatry. In older translations like the Wycliffe Bible it is translated, "Thou shalt not Commit Lechery." Fornication in the O.T. is "Highly Fed, and therefore Wanton, to Commit Adultery, or Idolatry;" in the N.T. 'Porneia' which is Harlotry, Indulge Lust, Practice Idolatry.
