Second Chronicles 16


16:1 In the six and thirtieth year of the reign of Asa Baasha
 king of Israel came against Judah, and built Ramah, to the
 intent that he might let none go out or come in to Asa king of
 Judah.
16:2 Then Asa brought silver and gold out of the treasures of
 the house of the LORD and of the king's house, and sent to
 Ben-hadad king of Syria, that dwelt at Damascus, saying,
16:3 [There is] a league between me and thee, as [there was]
 between my father and thy father: behold, I have sent thee
 silver and gold; go, break thy league with Baasha king of
 Israel, that he may depart from me.
16:4 And Ben-hadad hearkened to king Asa, and sent the captains
 of his armies against the cities of Israel; and they smote
 Ijon, and Dan, and Abelmaim, and all the store cities of
 Naphtali.
16:5 And it came to pass, when Baasha heard [it], that he left
 off the building of Ramah, and let his work cease.
16:6 Then Asa the king took all Judah; and they carried away the
 stones of Ramah, and the timber of it, with which Baasha was
 building, and he built with it Geba and Mizpah.
16:7 And at that time Hanani the seer came to Asa king of Judah,
 and said to him, Because thou hast relied on the king of Syria,
 and not relied on the LORD thy God, therefore hath the host of
 the king of Syria escaped out of thy hand.
16:8 Were not the Cushites and the Lubims a numerous army, with
 very many chariots and horsemen? yet, because thou didst rely
 on the LORD, he delivered them into thy hand.
16:9 For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the
 whole earth, to show himself strong in the behalf of [them]
 whose heart [is] perfect towards him. In this thou hast done
 foolishly: therefore from henceforth thou shalt have wars.
16:10 Then Asa was wroth with the seer, and put him in a prison
 house; for [he was] in a rage with him because of this [thing].
 And Asa oppressed [some] of the people the same time.
16:11 And behold, the acts of Asa, first and last, lo, they
 [are] written in the book of the kings of Judah and Israel.
16:12 And Asa in the thirty and ninth year of his reign was
 diseased in his feet, until his disease [was] exceedingly
 [severe]: yet in his disease he sought not to the LORD, but to
 the physicians.
16:13 And Asa slept with his fathers, and died in the one and
 fortieth year of his reign.
16:14 And they buried him in his own sepulchers which he had
 made for himself in the city of David, and laid him in the bed
 which was filled with sweet odors and divers kinds [of spices]
 prepared by the apothecaries' art: and they made a very great
 burning for him.
