2 Chronicles 15:1-9


15:1 God’s Spirit came upon Azariah son of Oded. 15:2 He met 1  Asa and told him, “Listen to me, Asa and all Judah and Benjamin! The Lord is with you when you are loyal to him. 2  If you seek him, he will respond to you, 3  but if you reject him, he will reject you. 15:3 For a long time 4  Israel had no true God, or priest to instruct them, or law. 15:4 Because of their distress, they turned back to the Lord God of Israel. They sought him and he responded to them. 5  15:5 In those days 6  no one could travel safely, 7  for total chaos had overtaken all the people of the surrounding lands. 8  15:6 One nation was crushed by another, and one city by another, for God caused them to be in great turmoil. 9  15:7 But as for you, be strong and don’t get discouraged, 10  for your work will be rewarded.” 11 

15:8 When Asa heard these words and the prophecy of Oded the prophet, he was encouraged. 12  He removed the detestable idols from the entire land of Judah and Benjamin and from the cities he had seized in the Ephraimite hill country. He repaired the altar of the Lord in front of the porch of the Lord’s temple. 13 

15:9 He assembled all Judah and Benjamin, as well as the settlers 14  from Ephraim, Manasseh, and Simeon who had come to live with them. Many people from Israel had come there to live 15  when they saw that the Lord his God was with him.
