RF CH2 14:1 (955 B.C.) Asa's Reign.
Then Abijah slept with his fathers, and they buried him in the City of David, and Asa his son reigned instead of him. In his time the Country was at peace for ten years.
RF CH2 14:2 Asa also did what was good and right in the eyes of the EVER-LIVING,
RF CH2 14:3 and removed the foreign altars, and the Mounds, and broke the Columns, and felled the Groves,
RF CH2 14:4 and commanded Judah to seek the EVER-LIVING GOD of their fathers, and to practice his Laws and Instructions.
RF CH2 14:5 He also removed the Mounds from the towns of Judah and the Images of the Sun. So his reign was in peace before him.
RF CH2 14:6 Asa Fortifies Judah.
He also built fortresses in Judah, for the country was at rest, and he had no war in those years;—for the EVER-LIVING was kind to him,
RF CH2 14:7 therefore he said to Judah; "Let us be building these Cities, and surround them with walls and forts, doors and bars, whilst the country is quiet, now we have sought our EVER-LIVING GOD, and He has given us rest around." So they built, and prospered.
RF CH2 14:8 Asa's Large Army.
Yet Asa had an army who bore shield and spear, of three hundred thousand men of Judah. And two hundred and eighty thousand from Benjamin, who carried shields, or drew the bow. All these were disciplined soldiers.
RF CH2 14:9 Zerakh, King of Kush, assails Asa.
Afterwards Zerakh, the Kushite,1 advanced against them with an Army of a million, and three hundred Chariots, and arrived at Mareshah,
RF CH2 14:10 and Asa went out to meet him, and prepared to fight in the plain of Zefathah near Mareshah,
RF CH2 14:11 where Asa cried to his EVER-LIVING GOD, and said:—"LORD! there is no difference with You, when helping, between the weak and the strong! Help us, our EVER-LIVING GOD, for we rely upon You, and in Your Name we come against this host. You are our EVER-LIVING GOD,—let not man prevail against You!"
RF CH2 14:12 And the EVER-LIVING routed the Kushites before Asa, and before Judah,—so the Kushites fled.
RF CH2 14:13 But Asa pursued them, with the force that was with him, to Gherar, where he overwhelmed the Kushites, and gave no quarter, for they were broken before the EVER-LIVING, and before His army, and very great plunder was collected.
RF CH2 14:14 He next assailed all the towns around Gherar,—for a terror from the LORD came upon them,—and sacked all the Cities, for there was much property in them.
RF CH2 14:15 They also attacked the cattle folds, and captured many sheep, and camels, and afterwards returned to Jerusalem.
1 NoTE.—Ch. 14, v. 8. "Zerakh, the Kushite." The Kush of the Hebrew Histories was a state extending from the Persian Gulf across Northern Arabia to the Gulf of Akabah in the Red Sea. It was not, as the Greeks imagined, Ethiopia in Central Africa, and as all our modern commentators, following their blunder, make it seem to be.—F.F.


AKJV ROM 8:32 He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?
