2 Chronicles 15
A Faithful Version

1Then the Spirit of God came upon Azariah the son of Oded. 2And he went out to meet Asa, and said to him, "Hear me, Asa, and all Judah and Benjamin. The LORD is with you while you are with Him. And if you seek Him, He will be found by you. But if you forsake Him, He will forsake you. 3Now for a long time Israel had been without the true God, and without a teaching priest, and without law. 4And when they turned in their trouble to the LORD God of Israel, and sought Him, He was found by them. 5And in those times there was no peace to him who went out, nor to him who came in, but great tumult was upon all the inhabitants of the lands. 6And nation was destroyed by nation, and city by city, for God troubled them with every adversity. 7But you be strong and do not let your hands be weak, for your work shall be rewarded."

8Now when Asa heard these words, and the prophecy of Oded the prophet, he took courage and put away the abominable idols out of all the land of Judah and Benjamin, and out of the cities which he had taken from Mount Ephraim. And he renewed the altar of the LORD before the porch of the LORD. 9And he gathered all Judah and Benjamin, and the strangers with them out of Ephraim and Manasseh, and out of Simeon; for they fell to him out of Israel in great numbers, when they saw that the LORD his God was with him. 10And they gathered at Jerusalem in the third month in the fifteenth year of the reign of Asa. 11And they offered to the LORD in that day of the spoil which they had brought, seven hundred oxen and seven thousand sheep. 12And they entered into a covenant to seek the LORD God of their fathers with all their heart and with all their soul, 13And that whoever would not seek the LORD God of Israel should be put to death, whether small or great, whether man or woman. 14And they swore to the LORD with a loud voice, and with shouting, and with silver trumpets, and with rams' horns. 15And all Judah rejoiced at the oath, for they had sworn with all their heart and sought Him with their whole desire. And He was found by them, and the LORD gave them rest all around.

16And also as to Maachah the mother of Asa the king, he removed her from being queen mother because she had made an idol in a grove. And Asa cut down her idol and stamped it and burned it at the brook Kidron. 17But the high places were not taken away out of Israel. Nevertheless, the heart of Asa was perfect all his days. 18And he brought into the house of God the things which his father had dedicated, and that which he himself had dedicated, silver and gold and vessels. 19And there was no war to the thirtyfifth year of the reign of Asa.
