2 Chronicles 14:9-15

14:9 Zerah the Cushite marched against them with an army of 1,000,000 1  men and 300 chariots. He arrived at Mareshah, 14:10 and Asa went out to oppose him. They deployed for battle in the Valley of Zephathah near Mareshah.

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