2 Chronicles 14:5-7 New Life Version (NLV)
5 He put the high places and the altars of special perfume away from all the cities of Judah. And the nation had rest under his rule. 6 He built strong cities in Judah, since the land had rest. No one fought a war with him during those years, because the Lord had given him rest. 7 So he said to the people of Judah, “Let us build these cities. And let us build walls and towers around them, with iron gates. The land is still ours, because we have followed the Lord our God. We have followed Him, and He has given us rest on every side.” So they built and did well.
