2 Chronicles 14:11-15


14:11 Asa prayed 1  to the Lord his God: “O Lord, there is no one but you who can help the weak when they are vastly outnumbered. 2  Help us, O Lord our God, for we rely on you and have marched on your behalf against this huge army. 3  O Lord our God, don’t let men prevail against you!” 4  14:12 The Lord struck down the Cushites before Asa and Judah. The Cushites fled, 14:13 and Asa and his army chased them as far as Gerar. The Cushites were wiped out; 5  they were shattered before the Lord and his army. The men of Judah 6  carried off a huge amount of plunder. 14:14 They defeated all the cities surrounding Gerar, for the Lord caused them to panic. 7  The men of Judah 8  looted all the cities, for they contained a huge amount of goods. 9  14:15 They also attacked the tents of the herdsmen in charge of the livestock. 10  They carried off many sheep and camels and then returned to Jerusalem. 11
