2 Chronicles 16:7-12


16:7 At that time Hanani the prophet 1  visited King Asa of Judah and said to him: “Because you relied on the king of Syria and did not rely on the Lord your God, the army of the king of Syria has escaped from your hand. 16:8 Did not the Cushites and Libyans have a huge army with chariots and a very large number of horsemen? But when you relied on the Lord, he handed them over to you! 16:9 Certainly 2  the Lord watches the whole earth carefully 3  and is ready to strengthen those who are devoted to him. 4  You have acted foolishly in this matter; from now on you will have war. 16:10 Asa was so angry at the prophet, he put him in jail. 5  Asa also oppressed some of the people at that time.
