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]

2CHRON 14:1 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.
2CHRON 14:2 And Asa did that which was good and right in the eyes of Jehovah his God:
2CHRON 14:3 for he took away the foreign altars, and the high places, and brake down the pillars, and hewed down the Asherim,
2CHRON 14:4 and commanded Judah to seek Jehovah, the God of their fathers, and to do the law and the commandment.
2CHRON 14:5 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.
2CHRON 14:6 And he built fortified cities in Judah; for the land was quiet, and he had no war in those years, because Jehovah had given him rest.
2CHRON 14:7 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 Jehovah our God; we have sought him, and he hath given us rest on every side. So they built and prospered.
2CHRON 14:8 And Asa had an army that bare bucklers and spears, out of Judah three hundred thousand; and out of Benjamin, that bare shields and drew bows, two hundred and fourscore thousand: all these were mighty men of valor.
2CHRON 14:9 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.
2CHRON 14:10 Then Asa went out to meet him, and they set the battle in array in the valley of Zephathah at Mareshah.
2CHRON 14:11 And Asa cried unto Jehovah his God, and said, Jehovah, there is none besides thee to help, between the mighty and him that hath no strength: help us, O Jehovah our God; for we rely on thee, and in thy name are we come against this multitude. O Jehovah, thou art our God; let not man prevail against thee.
2CHRON 14:12 So Jehovah smote the Ethiopians before Asa, and before Judah; and the Ethiopians fled.
2CHRON 14:13 And Asa and the people that were with him pursued them unto Gerar: and there fell of the Ethiopians so many that they could not recover themselves; for they were destroyed before Jehovah, and before his host; and they carried away very much booty.
2CHRON 14:14 And they smote all the cities round about Gerar; for the fear of Jehovah came upon them: and they despoiled all the cities; for there was much spoil in them.
2CHRON 14:15 They smote also the tents of cattle, and carried away sheep in abundance, and camels, and returned to Jerusalem.
