15:1 And the Spirit [H7307] of God [H430] came upon Azariah [H5838] the son [H1121] of Oded [H5752] :
15:2 And he went out [H3318] to meet [H6440] Asa [H609] , and said [H559] unto him, Hear [H8085] ye me, Asa [H609] , and all Judah [H3063] and Benjamin [H1144] ; The LORD [H3068] [is] with you, while ye be with him; and if ye seek [H1875] him, he will be found [H4672] of you; but if ye forsake [H5800] him, he will forsake [H5800] you.(to meet: Heb. before Asa)
15:3 Now for a long [H7227] season [H3117] Israel [H3478] [hath been] without [H3808] the true [H571] God [H430] , and without a teaching [H3384] priest [H3548] , and without law [H8451] .
15:4 But when they in their trouble [H6862] did turn [H7725] unto the LORD [H3068] God [H430] of Israel [H3478] , and sought [H1245] him, he was found [H4672] of them.
15:5 And in those times [H6256] [there was] no peace [H7965] to him that went out [H3318] , nor to him that came in [H935] , but great [H7227] vexations [H4103] [were] upon all the inhabitants [H3427] of the countries [H776] .
15:6 And nation [H1471] was destroyed [H3807] of nation [H1471] , and city [H5892] of city [H5892] : for God [H430] did vex [H2000] them with all adversity [H6869] .(destroyed: Heb. beaten in pieces)
15:7 Be ye strong [H2388] therefore, and let not your hands [H3027] be weak [H7503] : for your work [H6468] shall be [H3426] rewarded [H7939] .
15:8 And when Asa [H609] heard [H8085] these words [H1697] , and the prophecy [H5016] of Oded [H5752] the prophet [H5030] , he took courage [H2388] , and put away [H5674] the abominable idols [H8251] out of all the land [H776] of Judah [H3063] and Benjamin [H1144] , and out of the cities [H5892] which he had taken [H3920] from mount [H2022] Ephraim [H669] , and renewed [H2318] the altar [H4196] of the LORD [H3068] , that [was] before [H6440] the porch [H197] of the LORD [H3068] .(abominable: Heb. abominations)
15:9 And he gathered [H6908] all Judah [H3063] and Benjamin [H1144] , and the strangers [H1481] with them out of Ephraim [H669] and Manasseh [H4519] , and out of Simeon [H8095] : for they fell [H5307] to him out of Israel [H3478] in abundance [H7230] , when they saw [H7200] that the LORD [H3068] his God [H430] [was] with him.
15:10 So they gathered themselves together [H6908] at Jerusalem [H3389] in the third [H7992] month [H2320] , in the fifteenth [H2568] [H6240] year [H8141] of the reign [H4438] of Asa [H609] .
15:11 And they offered [H2076] unto the LORD [H3068] the same time [H3117] , of the spoil [H7998] [which] they had brought [H935] , seven [H7651] hundred [H3967] oxen [H1241] and seven [H7651] thousand [H505] sheep [H6629] .(the same: Heb. in that day)
15:12 And they entered [H935] into a covenant [H1285] to seek [H1875] the LORD [H3068] God [H430] of their fathers [H1] with all their heart [H3824] and with all their soul [H5315] ;
15:13 That whosoever would not seek [H1875] the LORD [H3068] God [H430] of Israel [H3478] should be put to death [H4191] , whether [H4480] small [H6996] or great [H1419] , whether man [H376] or woman [H802] .
15:14 And they sware [H7650] unto the LORD [H3068] with a loud [H1419] voice [H6963] , and with shouting [H8643] , and with trumpets [H2689] , and with cornets [H7782] .
15:15 And all Judah [H3063] rejoiced [H8055] at the oath [H7621] : for they had sworn [H7650] with all their heart [H3824] , and sought [H1245] him with their whole desire [H7522] ; and he was found [H4672] of them: and the LORD [H3068] gave them rest [H5117] round about [H5439] .
15:16 And also [concerning] Maachah [H4601] the mother [H517] of Asa [H609] the king [H4428] , he removed [H5493] her from [being] queen [H1377] , because she had made [H6213] an idol [H4656] in a grove [H842] : and Asa [H609] cut down [H3772] her idol [H4656] , and stamped [H1854] [it], and burnt [H8313] [it] at the brook [H5158] Kidron [H6939] .(mother: that is, grandmother)(idol: Heb. horror)
15:17 But the high places [H1116] were not taken away [H5493] out of Israel [H3478] : nevertheless the heart [H3824] of Asa [H609] was perfect [H8003] all his days [H3117] .
15:18 And he brought [H935] into the house [H1004] of God [H430] the things that his father [H1] had dedicated [H6944] , and that he himself had dedicated [H6944] , silver [H3701] , and gold [H2091] , and vessels [H3627] .
15:19 And there was no [more] war [H4421] unto the five [H2568] and thirtieth [H7970] year [H8141] of the reign [H4438] of Asa [H609] .
