2 Chronicles 14:7-8

Context
14:7 He said to the people of Judah: 1  “Let’s build these cities and fortify them with walls, towers, and barred gates. 2  The land remains ours because we have followed 3  the Lord our God and he has made us secure on all sides.” 4  So they built the cities 5  and prospered.

14:8 Asa had an army of 300,000 men from Judah, equipped with large shields and spears. He also had 280,000 men from Benjamin who carried small shields and were adept archers; they were all skilled warriors.
