1 And Abia died with his fathers, and they buried him in the city of David; and Asa his son reigned in his stead. In the days of Asa the land of Juda had rest ten years. 2 And he did that which was good and right in the sight of the Lord his God. 3 And he removed the altars of the strange [gods], and the high places, and broke the pillars in pieces, and cut down the groves: 4 and he told Juda to seek earnestly the Lord God of their fathers, and to perform the law and commandments. 5 And he removed from all the cities of Juda the altars and the idols, and established in quietness 6 fortified cities in the land of Juda; for the land was quiet, and he had no war in these years; for the Lord gave him rest. 7 And he said to Juda, Let us fortify these cities, and make walls, and towers, and gates, and bars: we shall prevail over the land, for as we have sought out the Lord our God, he has sought out us, and has given us rest round about, and prospered us. 8 And Asa had a force of armed men bearing shields and spears in the land of Juda, [even] three hundred thousand, and in the land of Benjamin two hundred and eighty thousand targeteers and archers: all these were mighty warriors. 9 And Zare the Ethiopian went out against them, with a force of a million, and three hundred chariots; and came to Maresa. 10 And Asa went out to meet him, and set the battle in array in the valley north of Maresa. 11 And Asa cried to the Lord his God, and said, O Lord, it is not impossible with thee to save by many or by few: strengthen us, O Lord our God; for we trust in thee, and in thy name have we come against this great multitude. O Lord our God, let not man prevail against thee. 12 And the Lord smote the Ethiopians before Juda; and the Ethiopians fled. 13 And Asa and his people pursued them to Gedor; and the Ethiopians fell, so that they could not recover themselves; for they were crushed before the Lord, and before his host; and they took many spoils. 14 And they destroyed their towns roundabout Gedor; for a terror of the Lord was upon them: and they spoiled all their cities, for they had much spoil. 15 Also they destroyed the tents of cattle, and the Alimazons, and took many sheep and camels, and returned to Jerusalem. ΚΑΙ ἀπέθανεν ᾿Αβιὰ μετὰ τῶν πατέρων αὐτοῦ, καὶ ἔθαψαν αὐτὸν ἐν πόλει Δαυίδ, καὶ ἐβασίλευσεν ᾿Ασὰ υἱὸς αὐτοῦ ἀντ’ αὐτοῦ. ἐν ταῖς ἡμέραις ᾿Ασὰ ἡσύχασεν ἡ γῆ ᾿Ιούδα δέκα ἔτη, 2 καὶ ἐποίησε τὸ καλὸν καὶ τὸ εὐθὲς ἐνώπιον Κυρίου τοῦ Θεοῦ αὐτοῦ. 3 καὶ ἀπέστησε τὰ θυσιαστήρια τῶν ἀλλοτρίων καὶ τὰ ὑψηλὰ καὶ συνέτριψε τὰς στήλας καὶ ἐξέκοψε τὰ ἄλση 4 καὶ εἶπε τῷ ᾿Ιούδᾳ ἐκζητῆσαι τὸν Κύριον Θεὸν τῶν πατέρων αὐτῶν καὶ ποιῆσαι τόν νόμον καὶ τὰς ἐντολάς. 5 καὶ ἀπέστησεν ἀπὸ πασῶν πόλεων ᾿Ιούδα τὰ θυσιαστήρια καὶ τὰ εἴδωλα, καὶ εἰρήνευσε 6 πόλεις τειχήρεις ἐν γῇ ᾿Ιούδα, ὅτι εἰρήνευσεν ἡ γῆ· καὶ οὐκ ἦν αὐτῷ πόλεμος ἐν τοῖς ἔτεσι τούτοις, ὅτι κατέπαυσε Κύριος αὐτῷ. 7 καὶ εἶπε τῷ ᾿Ιούδᾳ· οἰκοδομήσωμεν τὰς πόλεις ταύτας καὶ ποιήσωμεν τείχη καὶ πύργους καὶ πύλας καὶ μοχλούς, ἐν ᾧ τῆς γῆς κυριεύσομεν, ὅτι καθὼς ἐξεζητήσαμεν Κύριον τὸν Θεὸν ἡμῶν, ἐξεζήτησεν ἡμᾶς καὶ κατέπαυσεν ἡμᾶς κυκλόθεν καὶ εὐώδωσεν ἡμῖν. 8 καὶ ἐγένετο δύναμις τῷ ᾿Ασὰ ὁπλοφόρων αἰρόντων θυρεοὺς καὶ δόρατα ἐν γῇ ᾿Ιούδα τριακόσιαι χιλιάδες καὶ ἐν γῇ Βενιαμὶν πελτασταὶ καὶ τοξόται διακόσιαι καὶ ὀγδοήκοντα χιλιάδες, πάντες οὗτοι πολεμισταὶ δυνάμεως. 9 καὶ ἐξῆλθεν ἐπ’ αὐτοὺς Ζαρὲ ὁ Αἰθίοψ ἐν δυνάμει ἐν χιλίαις χιλιάσι καὶ ἅρμασι τριακοσίοις, καὶ ἦλθεν ἕως Μαρισά. 10 καὶ ἐξῆλθεν ᾿Ασὰ εἰς συνάντησιν αὐτῷ καὶ παρετάξατο πόλεμον ἐν τῇ φάραγγι κατὰ βορρᾶν Μαρισά. 11 καὶ ἐβόησεν ᾿Ασὰ πρὸς ΚύριοΘεὸν αὐτοῦ καὶ εἶπε· Κύριε, οὐκ ἀδυνατεῖ παρὰ σοὶ σώζειν ἐν πολλοῖς καὶ ἐν ὀλίγοις· κατίσχυσον ἡμᾶς, Κύριε ὁ Θεὸς ἡμῶν, ὅτι ἐπὶ σοὶ πεποίθαμεν καὶ ἐπὶ τῷ ὀνόματί σου ἤλθομεν ἐπὶ τὸ πλῆθος τὸ πολὺ τοῦτο· Κύριε ὁ Θεὸς ἡμῶν, μὴ κατισχυσάτω πρός σε ἄνθρωπος. 12 καὶ ἐπάταξε Κύριος τοὺς Αἰθίοπας ἐναντίον ᾿Ιούδα, καὶ ἔφυγον Αἰθίοπες· 13 καὶ κατεδίωξεν αὐτοὺς ᾿Ασὰ καὶ ὁ λαὸς αὐτοῦ ἕως Γεδώρ, καὶ ἔπεσον Αἰθίοπες ὥστε μὴ εἶναι ἐν αὐτοῖς περιποίησιν, ὅτι συνετρίβησαν ἐνώπιον Κυρίου καὶ ἐναντίον τῆς δυνάμεως αὐτοῦ, καὶ ἐσκύλευσαν σκῦλα πολλά. 14 καὶ ἐξέκοψαν τὰς κώμας αὐτῶν κύκλῳ Γεδώρ, ὅτι ἐγενήθη ἔκστασις Κυρίου ἐπ’ αὐτούς, καὶ ἐσκύλευσαν πάσας τὰς πόλεις αὐτῶν, ὅτι πολλὰ σκῦλα ἐγενήθη αὐτοῖς· 15 καί γε σκηνὰς κτήσεων, τοὺς ᾿Αλιμαζονεῖς, ἐξέκοψαν καὶ ἔλαβον πρόβατα πολλὰ καὶ καμήλους καὶ ἐπέστρεψαν εἰς ῾Ιερουσαλήμ.
