2 Chronicles 14:1-6New International Version (NIV)
14 [a]And Abijah rested with his ancestors and was buried in the City of David. Asa his son succeeded him as king, and in his days the country was at peace for ten years.
Asa King of Judah
2 Asa did what was good and right in the eyes of the Lord his God.3 He removed the foreign altars and the high places, smashed the sacred stones and cut down the Asherah poles.[b]4 He commanded Judah to seek the Lord, the God of their ancestors, and to obey his laws and commands.5 He removed the high places and incense altars in every town in Judah, and the kingdom was at peace under him.6 He built up the fortified cities of Judah, since the land was at peace. No one was at war with him during those years, for the Lord gave him rest.
