014:014:001
So Abijah slept with his fathers,
and they buried him in the city of David:
and Asa his son reigned in his stead.
In his days the land was quiet ten years.


014:014:002
And Asa did that which was good and right in the eyes of the LORD his God:


014:014:003
For he took away the altars of the strange gods,
and the high places,
and brake down the images,
and cut down the groves:


014:014:004
And commanded Judah to seek the LORD God of their fathers,
and to do the law and the commandment.


014:014:005
Also he took away out of all the cities of Judah the high places and the images:
and the kingdom was quiet before him.


014:014:006
And he built fenced cities in Judah:
for the land had rest,
and he had no war in those years;
because the LORD had given him rest.


014:014:007
Therefore he said unto Judah,
Let us build these cities,
and make about them walls,
and towers,
gates,
and bars,
while the land is yet before us;
because we have sought the LORD our God,
we have sought him,
and he hath given us rest on every side.
So they built and prospered.


014:014:008
And Asa had an army of men that bare targets and spears,
out of Judah three hundred thousand;
and out of Benjamin,
that bare shields and drew bows,
two hundred and fourscore thousand:
all these were mighty men of valour.


014:014:009
And there came out against them Zerah the Ethiopian with an host of a thousand thousand,
and three hundred chariots;
and came unto Mareshah.


014:014:010
Then Asa went out against him,
and they set the battle in array in the valley of Zephathah at Mareshah.


014:014:011
And Asa cried unto the LORD his God,
and said,
LORD,
it is nothing with thee to help,
whether with many,
or with them that have no power:
help us,
O LORD our God;
for we rest on thee,
and in thy name we go against this multitude.
O LORD,
thou art our God;
let no man prevail against thee.


014:014:012
So the LORD smote the Ethiopians before Asa,
and before Judah;
and the Ethiopians fled.


014:014:013
And Asa and the people that were with him pursued them unto Gerar:
and the Ethiopians were overthrown,
that they could not recover themselves;
for they were destroyed before the LORD,
and before his host;
and they carried away very much spoil.


014:014:014
And they smote all the cities round about Gerar;
for the fear of the LORD came upon them:
and they spoiled all the cities;
for there was exceeding much spoil in them.


014:014:015
They smote also the tents of cattle,
and carried away sheep and camels in abundance,
and returned to Jerusalem.
