2 Chronicles 14:5-7 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
5 He built fortified cities in Judah, for the land had peace and no war was waged against him during these years, because the Lord had given him rest. 6 He said to Judah: “Let us build these cities and surround them with walls, towers, gates and bars. The land is still ours, for we have sought the Lord, our God; we sought him, and he has given us rest on every side.” So they built and prospered.
