2 Chronicles 14:6-8 New Life Version (NLV)
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. 8 Asa had an army of 300,000 men from Judah, with large battle-coverings and spears. And he had 280,000 men from Benjamin, with battle-coverings and bows. All of them were powerful soldiers.
