2 Chronicles 13:19--14:1


13:19 Abijah chased Jeroboam; he seized from him these cities: Bethel 1  and its surrounding towns, Jeshanah and its surrounding towns, and Ephron and its surrounding towns. 13:20 Jeroboam did not regain power during the reign of Abijah. 2  The Lord struck him down and he died. 13:21 Abijah’s power grew; he had 3  fourteen wives and fathered twenty-two sons and sixteen daughters.

13:22 The rest of the events of Abijah’s reign, including his deeds and sayings, 4  are recorded in the writings of the prophet Iddo.

14:1 (13:23) 5  Abijah passed away 6  and was buried in the City of David. 7  His son Asa replaced him as king. During his reign 8  the land had rest for ten years.
