2 Chronicles 14

So Abijah
<029>
slept
<07901> (8799)
with his fathers
<01>_,
and they buried
<06912> (8799)
him in the city
<05892>
of David
<01732>_:
and Asa
<0609>
his son
<01121>
reigned
<04427> (8799)
in his stead. In his days
<03117>
the land
<0776>
was quiet
<08252> (8804)
ten
<06235>
years
<08141>_.
And Asa
<0609>
did
<06213> (8799)
[that which was] good
<02896>
and right
<03477>
in the eyes
<05869>
of the LORD
<03068>
his God
<0430>_:
For he took away
<05493> (8686)
the altars
<04196>
of the strange
<05236>
[gods], and the high places
<01116>_,
and brake down
<07665> (8762)
the images
<04676>_,
and cut down
<01438> (8762)
the groves
<0842>_:
{images: Heb. statues}
And commanded
<0559> (8799)
Judah
<03063>
to seek
<01875> (8800)
the LORD
<03068>
God
<0430>
of their fathers
<01>_,
and to do
<06213> (8800)
the law
<08451>
and the commandment
<04687>_.
Also he took away
<05493> (8686)
out of all the cities
<05892>
of Judah
<03063>
the high places
<01116>
and the images
<02553>_:
and the kingdom
<04467>
was quiet
<08252> (8799)
before
<06440>
him. {images: Heb. sun images}
And he built
<01129> (8799)
fenced
<04694>
cities
<05892>
in Judah
<03063>_:
for the land
<0776>
had rest
<08252> (8804)_,
and he had no war
<04421>
in those years
<08141>_;
because the LORD
<03068>
had given him rest
<05117> (8689)_.
Therefore he said
<0559> (8799)
unto Judah
<03063>_,
Let us build
<01129> (8799)
these cities
<05892>_,
and make about
<05437> (8686)
[them] walls
<02346>_,
and towers
<04026>_,
gates
<01817>_,
and bars
<01280>_,
[while] the land
<0776>
[is] yet before
<06440>
us; because we have sought
<01875> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>
our God
<0430>_,
we have sought
<01875> (8804)
[him], and he hath given us rest
<05117> (8799)
on every side
<05439>_.
So they built
<01129> (8799)
and prospered
<06743> (8686)_.
And Asa
<0609>
had an army
<02428>
[of men] that bare
<05375> (8802)
targets
<06793>
and spears
<07420>_,
out of Judah
<03063>
three
<07969>
hundred
<03967>
thousand
<0505>_;
and out of Benjamin
<01144>_,
that bare
<05375> (8802)
shields
<04043>
and drew
<01869> (8802)
bows
<07198>_,
two hundred
<03967>
and fourscore
<08084>
thousand
<0505>_:
all these [were] mighty men
<01368>
of valour
<02428>_.
And there came out
<03318> (8799)
against them Zerah
<02226>
the Ethiopian
<03569>
with an host
<02428>
of a thousand
<0505>
thousand
<0505>_,
and three
<07969>
hundred
<03967>
chariots
<04818>_;
and came
<0935> (8799)
unto Mareshah
<04762>_.
Then Asa
<0609>
went out
<03318> (8799)
against
<06440>
him, and they set the battle
<04421>
in array
<06186> (8799)
in the valley
<01516>
of Zephathah
<06859>
at Mareshah
<04762>_.
And Asa
<0609>
cried
<07121> (8799)
unto the LORD
<03068>
his God
<0430>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
LORD
<03068>_,
[it is] nothing with thee to help
<05826> (8800)_,
whether
<0996>
with many
<07227>_,
or with them that have no power
<03581>_:
help
<05826> (8798)
us, O LORD
<03068>
our God
<0430>_;
for we rest
<08172> (8738)
on thee, and in thy name
<08034>
we go
<0935> (8804)
against this multitude
<01995>_.
O LORD
<03068>_,
thou [art] our God
<0430>_;
let not man
<0582>
prevail
<06113> (8799)
against thee. {man: or, mortal man}
So the LORD
<03068>
smote
<05062> (8799)
the Ethiopians
<03569>
before
<06440>
Asa
<0609>_,
and before
<06440>
Judah
<03063>_;
and the Ethiopians
<03569>
fled
<05127> (8799)_.
And Asa
<0609>
and the people
<05971>
that [were] with him pursued
<07291> (8799)
them unto Gerar
<01642>_:
and the Ethiopians
<03569>
were overthrown
<05307> (8799)_,
that they could not recover
<04241>
themselves; for they were destroyed
<07665> (8738)
before
<06440>
the LORD
<03068>_,
and before
<06440>
his host
<04264>_;
and they carried away
<05375> (8799)
very
<03966>
much
<07235> (8687)
spoil
<07998>_.
{destroyed: Heb. broken}
And they smote
<05221> (8686)
all the cities
<05892>
round about
<05439>
Gerar
<01642>_;
for the fear
<06343>
of the LORD
<03068>
came upon them: and they spoiled
<0962> (8799)
all the cities
<05892>_;
for there was exceeding much
<07227>
spoil
<0961>
in them.
They smote
<05221> (8689)
also the tents
<0168>
of cattle
<04735>_,
and carried away
<07617> (8799)
sheep
<06629>
and camels
<01581>
in abundance
<07230>_,
and returned
<07725> (8799)
to Jerusalem
<03389>_.
