2 Chronicles 25:11-14

Context
25:11 Amaziah boldly led his army to the Valley of Salt, 1  where he defeated 2  10,000 Edomites. 3  25:12 The men 4  of Judah captured 10,000 men alive. They took them to the top of a cliff and threw them over. 5  All the captives 6  fell to their death. 7  25:13 Now the troops Amaziah had dismissed and had not allowed to fight in the battle 8  raided 9  the cities of Judah from Samaria 10  to Beth Horon. They killed 11  3,000 people and carried off a large amount of plunder.

25:14 When Amaziah returned from defeating the Edomites, he brought back the gods of the people 12  of Seir and made them his personal gods. 13  He bowed down before them and offered them sacrifices.
