2 Chronicles 14

[1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8] [9] [10] [11] [12] [13] [14] [15] [16] [17] [18] [19] [20] [21] [22] [23] [24] [25] [26] [27] [28] [29] [30] [31] [32] [33] [34] [35] [36]

14:1 (13:23) So Abijah slept with his fathers, and they buried him in the city of David, and Asa his son reigned in his stead; in his days the land was quiet ten years.

14:2 (14:1) And Asa did that which was good and right in the eyes of the LORD his God;

14:3 (14:2) for he took away the strange altars, and the high places, and broke down the pillars, and hewed down the Asherim;

14:4 (14:3) and commanded Judah to seek the LORD, the God of their fathers, and to do the law and the commandment.

14:5 (14:4) Also he took away out of all the cities of Judah the high places and the sun-images; and the kingdom was quiet before him.

14:6 (14:5) And he built fortified cities in Judah; for the land was quiet, and he had no war in those years; because the LORD had given him rest.

14:7 (14:6) For he said unto Judah: 'Let us build these cities, and make about them walls, and towers, gates, and bars; the land is yet before us, because we have sought the LORD our God; we have sought Him, and He hath given us rest on every side.' So they built and prospered.

14:8 (14:7) And Asa had an army that bore bucklers and spears, out of Judah three hundred thousand; and out of Benjamin, that bore shields and drew bows, two hundred and fourscore thousand; all these were mighty men of valour.

14:9 (14:8) And there came out against them Zerah the Ethiopian with an army of a thousand thousand, and three hundred chariots; and he came unto Mareshah.

14:10 (14:9) Then Asa went out to meet him, and they set the battle in array in the valley of Zephath at Mareshah.

14:11 (14:10) And Asa cried unto the LORD his God, and said: 'LORD, there is none beside Thee to help, between the mighty and him that hath no strength; help us, O LORD our God; for we rely on Thee, and in Thy name are we come against this multitude. Thou art the LORD our God; let not man prevail against Thee.'

14:12 (14:11) So the LORD smote the Ethiopians before Asa, and before Judah; and the Ethiopians fled.

14:13 (14:12) And Asa and the people that were with him pursued them unto Gerar; and there fell of the Ethiopians so that none remained alive; for they were shattered before the LORD, and before His host; and they carried away very much booty.

14:14 (14:13) And they smote all the cities round about Gerar; for a terror from the LORD came upon them; and they spoiled all the cities; for there was much spoil in them.

14:15 (14:14) They smote also the tents of cattle, and carried away sheep in abundance and camels, and returned to Jerusalem.
