2 Chronicles 14:1-2

Context

14:1 (13:23) 1  Abijah passed away 2  and was buried in the City of David. 3  His son Asa replaced him as king. During his reign 4  the land had rest for ten years.

Asa’s Religious and Military Accomplishments

14:2 (14:1) Asa did what the Lord his God desired and approved. 5 

1 sn Beginning with 14:1, the verse numbers through 14:15 in the English Bible differ from the verse numbers in the Hebrew text (BHS), with 14:1 ET = 13:23 HT, 14:2 ET = 14:1 HT, 14:3 ET = 14:2 HT, etc., through 14:15 ET = 14:14 HT. Beginning with 15:1 the verse numbers in the ET and HT are again the same.

2 tn Heb “lay down with his fathers.”

3 sn The phrase the City of David refers here to the fortress of Zion in Jerusalem, not to Bethlehem. See 2 Sam 5:7.

4 tn Heb “in his days.”

5 tn Heb “and Asa did the good and the right in the eyes of the Lord his God.”
