2 Chronicles 14

1  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.

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

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

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

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

6  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.

7  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.

8  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.

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

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