Second Chronicles 15

15:1 And the Spirit of God came upon Azariah the son of Oded:
15:2 And he went out to meet Asa, and said to him, Hear ye me,
 Asa, and all Judah and Benjamin; The LORD [is] with you, while
 ye are with him; and if ye seek him, he will be found of you;
 but if ye forsake him, he will forsake you.
15:3 Now for a long season Israel [hath been] without the true
 God, and without a teaching priest, and without law.
15:4 But when they in their trouble returned to the LORD God of
 Israel, and sought him, he was found by them.
15:5 And in those times [there was] no peace to him that went
 out, nor to him that came in, but great vexations [were] upon
 all the inhabitants of the countries.
15:6 And nation was destroyed by nation, and city by city: for
 God troubled them with all adversity.
15:7 Be ye strong therefore, and let not your hands be weak; for
 your work shall be rewarded.
15:8 And when Asa heard these words, and the prophecy of Oded
 the prophet, he took courage, and put away the abominable idols
 out of all the land of Judah and Benjamin, and out of the
 cities which he had taken from mount Ephraim, and renewed the
 altar of the LORD, that [was] before the porch of the LORD.
15:9 And he gathered all Judah and Benjamin, and the strangers
 with them out of Ephraim and Manasseh, and out of Simeon: for
 they resorted to him out of Israel in multitudes, when they saw
 that the LORD his God [was] with him.
15:10 So they assembled at Jerusalem in the third month, in the
 fifteenth year of the reign of Asa.
15:11 And they offered to the LORD at the same time, of the
 spoil [which] they had brought, seven hundred oxen and seven
 thousand sheep.
15:12 And they entered into a covenant to seek the LORD God of
 their fathers with all their heart and with all their soul;
15:13 That whoever would not seek the LORD God of Israel should
 be put to death, whether small or great, whether man or woman.
15:14 And they swore to the LORD with a loud voice, and with
 shouting, and with trumpets, and with cornets.
15:15 And all Judah rejoiced at the oath: for they had sworn
 with all their heart, and sought him with their whole desire;
 and he was found by them: and the LORD gave them rest on all
15:16 And also [concerning] Maachah the mother of Asa the king,
 he removed her from [being] queen, because she had made an idol
 in a grove: and Asa cut down her idol, and stamped [it], and
 burnt [it] at the brook Kidron.
15:17 But the high places were not taken away out of Israel:
 nevertheless the heart of Asa was perfect all his days.
15:18 And he brought into the house of God the things that his
 father had dedicated, and that he himself had dedicated,
 silver, and gold, and vessels.
15:19 And there was no [more] war until the five and thirtieth
 year of the reign of Asa.
