2 Chronicles 15:8-15

Context

15:8 When Asa heard these words and the prophecy of Oded the prophet, he was encouraged. 1  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. 2 

15:9 He assembled all Judah and Benjamin, as well as the settlers 3  from Ephraim, Manasseh, and Simeon who had come to live with them. Many people from Israel had come there to live 4  when they saw that the Lord his God was with him. 15:10 They assembled in Jerusalem in the third month of the fifteenth year of Asa’s reign. 15:11 At that time 5  they sacrificed to the Lord some of the plunder they had brought back, including 700 head of cattle and 7,000 sheep. 6  15:12 They solemnly agreed 7  to seek the Lord God of their ancestors 8  with their whole heart and being. 15:13 Anyone who would not seek the Lord God of Israel would be executed, whether they were young or old, 9  male or female. 15:14 They swore their allegiance to the Lord, shouting their approval loudly and sounding trumpets and horns. 10  15:15 All Judah was happy about the oath, because they made the vow with their whole heart. They willingly sought the Lord and he responded to them. 11  He made them secure on every side. 12
