RF CH2 16:1 (940 B.C.) Basha of Israel Assails Judah.—Asa allies with Ben-hadad.
In the thirty-sixth year of the Kingship of Asa, Basha King of Israel came up against Judah, and built Ramah, so as not to allow a passage to Asa King of Judah.
RF CH2 16:2 Asa consequently took silver and gold out of the Treasures of the House of the EVER-LIVING, and the Royal Palace, and sent to Ben-Hadad, King of Aram, who was Resident in Damask, and said;
RF CH2 16:3 "There is a Treaty between myself and you, as there was between my father and your father, therefore I have sent silver and gold to you to break the treaty with Basha, King of Israel, that he may retreat from me."
RF CH2 16:4 (940 B.C.) And Ben-hadad listened to King Asa, and sent the Generals of his forces against the Cities of Israel, and they assailed Aion, and Dan, and Abel-maim, and all the prosperous Towns of Naphtali;
RF CH2 16:5 and when Basha heard it he ceased from the building of Ramah, and left his works,
RF CH2 16:6 and King Asa took the forces of Judah, and carried off the stones and timber, with which Basha was building, from Ramah, and built Gheba and Mitzfah with them.
RF CH2 16:7 The Preacher Hanani denounces the Treaty with Ben-hadad.
But at that time Hanani, the Preacher, came to Asa King of Judah, and said to him;—"Because you have trusted yourself to the King of Aram, and have not trusted upon your EVER-LIVING GOD, the Army of the King of Aram will slip from your hand!
RF CH2 16:8 Were not the Kushim and the Lubim, with their great Army of Chariots and horsemen, very numerous?—But because you relied upon the EVER-LIVING, they were given to your hand.
RF CH2 16:9 For the eyes of the EVER-LIVING dart to all the earth, to strengthen, if the heart is sound to him!—You have done foolishly about this,—therefore from now there will be wars for you!"
RF CH2 16:10 Consequently Asa was furious at the seer, and put him into the Prison of the Stocks, for he was enraged with him about it. Asa also oppressed the people at the same time.
RF CH2 16:11 But you must seek the beginning and end of the affairs of Asa as they are recorded in the records of the Kings of Judah and Israel.
RF CH2 16:12 Asa Suffers from Gout in his Old Age.
In the thirty-ninth year of his Kingship, Asa became lame in his feet,—His suffering was very great.—However, in his suffering he did not consult the EVER-LIVING,—but Physicians,
RF CH2 16:13 so Asa slept with his fathers, and died in the forty-first year of his reign.
RF CH2 16:14 (914 B.C.) But they buried him in his own tomb which he had formed for himself in the City of David, and laid him on a bed that was filled with perfumes, and spices, and preservatives, prepared by chemists. They also burnt a very great burning for him.


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?
