2 Chronicles 13:12-16

13:12 Now look, God is with us as our leader. His priests are ready to blow the trumpets to signal the attack against you. 1  You Israelites, don’t fight against the Lord God of your ancestors, 2  for you will not win!”

13:13 Now Jeroboam had sent some men to ambush the Judahite army from behind. 3  The main army was in front of the Judahite army; 4  the ambushers were behind it. 13:14 The men of Judah turned around and realized they were being attacked from the front and the rear. 5  So they cried out for help to the Lord. The priests blew their trumpets, 13:15 and the men of Judah gave 6  the battle cry. As the men of Judah gave the battle cry, the Lord struck down Jeroboam and all Israel before Abijah and Judah. 13:16 The Israelites fled from before the Judahite army, 7  and God handed them over to the men of Judah. 8
