And the SpiritH7307 of GodH430 cameH1961 on AzariahH5838 the sonH1121 of Oded:H5752
And he wentH3318 out to meetH6440 Asa,H609 and saidH559 to him, HearH8085 you me, Asa,H609 and allH3605 JudahH3063 and Benjamin;H1144 The LORDH3068 is with you, while you be with him; and ifH518 you seekH1875 him, he will be foundH4672 of you; but ifH518 you forsakeH5800 him, he will forsakeH5800 you.
Now for a longH7227 seasonH3117 IsraelH3478 has been withoutH3808 the trueH571 God,H430 and withoutH3808 a teachingH3384 priest,H3548 and withoutH3808 law.H8451
But when they in their troubleH6862 did turnH7725 to the LORDH3068 GodH430 of Israel,H3478 and soughtH1245 him, he was foundH4672 of them.
And in thoseH1992 times there was noH369 peaceH7965 to him that wentH3318 out, nor to him that cameH935 in, but greatH7227 vexationsH4103 were on allH3605 the inhabitantsH3427 of the countries.H776
And nationH1471 was destroyedH3807 of nation,H1471 and cityH5892 of city:H5892 for GodH430 did vexH2000 them with allH3605 adversity.H6869
Be you strongH2388 therefore, and let not your handsH3027 be weak:H7503 for your workH6468 shall be rewarded.H7939
And when AsaH609 heardH8085 theseH428 words,H1697 and the prophecyH5016 of OdedH5752 the prophet,H5030 he took courage,H2388 and putH5674 awayH5674 the abominableH8251 idolsH8251 out of allH3605 the landH776 of JudahH3063 and Benjamin,H1144 and out of the citiesH5892 whichH834 he had takenH3920 from mountH2022 Ephraim,H669 and renewedH2318 the altarH4196 of the LORD,H3068 that was beforeH6440 the porchH197 of the LORD.H3068
And he gatheredH6908 allH3605 JudahH3063 and Benjamin,H1144 and the strangersH1481 with them out of EphraimH669 and Manasseh,H4519 and out of Simeon:H8095 for they fellH5307 to him out of IsraelH3478 in abundance,H7230 when they sawH7200 that the LORDH3068 his GodH430 was with him.
So they gatheredH6908 themselves together at JerusalemH3389 in the thirdH7992 month,H2320 in the fifteenthH2568 H6240 yearH8141 of the reignH4438 of Asa.H609
And they offeredH2076 to the LORDH3068 the sameH1931 time,H3117 of the spoilH7998 which they had brought,H935 sevenH7651 hundredH3967 oxenH1241 and sevenH7651 thousandH505 sheep.H6629
And they enteredH935 into a covenantH1285 to seekH1875 the LORDH3068 GodH430 of their fathersH1 with allH3605 their heartH3824 and with allH3605 their soul;H5315
That whoeverH3605 would not seekH1875 the LORDH3068 GodH430 of IsraelH3478 should be put to death,H4191 whetherH4480 smallH6996 orH5704 great,H1419 whether manH376 orH5704 woman.H802
And they sworeH7650 to the LORDH3068 with a loudH1419 voice,H6963 and with shouting,H8643 and with trumpets,H2689 and with cornets.H7782
And allH3605 JudahH3063 rejoicedH8055 atH5921 the oath:H7621 for they had swornH7650 with allH3605 their heart,H3824 and soughtH1245 him with their wholeH3605 desire;H7522 and he was foundH4672 of them: and the LORDH3068 gave them restH5117 roundH5439 about.
And alsoH1571 concerning MaachahH4601 the motherH517 of AsaH609 the king,H4428 he removedH5493 her from being queen,H1377 becauseH834 she had madeH6213 an idolH4656 in a grove:H842 and AsaH609 cutH3772 down her idol,H4656 and stampedH1854 it, and burntH8313 it at the brookH5158 Kidron.H6939
But the highH1116 places were not takenH5493 awayH5493 out of Israel:H3478 neverthelessH7535 the heartH3824 of AsaH609 was perfectH8003 allH3605 his days.H3117
And he broughtH935 into the houseH1004 of GodH430 the things that his fatherH25 had dedicated,H6944 and that he himself had dedicated,H6944 silver,H3701 and gold,H2091 and vessels.H3627
And there was noH3808 more warH4421 to the fiveH2568 and thirtiethH7970 yearH8141 of the reignH4438 of Asa.H609
