Asa Reigns in Judah
(1 Kings 15:9–15)

1And Abijah will lie down with his fathers, and they will bury him in the city of David: and Asa his son will reign in his stead. In his days the land rested ten years.

2And Asa will do the good and the straight in the eyes of Jehovah his God: 3And he will remove the altars of the stranger, and the heights, and break the pillars, and cut down the images: 4And he will say to Judah to seek Jehovah the God of their fathers, and to do the law and the commands. 5And he will remove from all the cities of Judah the heights and the images: and the kingdom will rest before him. 6And he will build cities of fortification in Judah: for the land rested, and not with him war in these years; for Jehovah gave rest to him. 7And he will say to Judah, We will build these cities, and surround a wall, and towers, doors and bars, and the land yet before us: for we sought Jehovah our God, and he will give to us rest from round about And they will build and prosper. 8And there will be to Asa an army lifting up the shield and spear, out of Judah three hundred thousand; and from Benjamin lifting up the shield and bending the bow, two hundred and eighty thousand: all these strong of power.

9And there will come forth against them Zerah the Cushite with an army of a thousand thousand, and three hundred chariots; and he will come even to Mareshah. 10And Asa will come forth before him, and they will arrange the battle in the valley of the watch-tower to Mareshah. 11And Asa will call to Jehovah his God, and he will say, O Jehovah, nothing with thee to help between many to those of no power: help us, O Jehovah our God, for upon thee we relied, and in thy name we came against this multitude. O Jehovah, thou our God; man shall not detain with thee. 12And Jehovah will smite the Cushites before Asa, and before Judah; and the Cushites will flee. 13And Asa will pursue them, and the people which were with him, even to the lodging-place: and there will fall from the Cushites to nothing being to them, for they were broken before Jehovah, and before his camp; and they will lift up exceeding much spoil. 14And they will strike all the cities round about the lodging-place; for the fear of Jehovah was upon them: and they will plunder all the cities; for much plunder was in them. 15And also tents of cattle they struck, and they will turn back sheep for multitude, and camels; and they will turn back to Jerusalem.
