2 Chronicles 26:5-7 Expanded Bible (EXB)
5 Uzziah ·obeyed [sought] God while Zechariah was alive, because he taught Uzziah how to ·respect and obey [fear] God [Prov. 1:7]. And as long as Uzziah ·obeyed [sought] the Lord, God ·gave him success [made him prosper].
6 Uzziah fought a war against the Philistines. He tore down the walls around their towns of Gath, Jabneh, and Ashdod and built new towns near Ashdod and in other places among the Philistines. 7 God helped Uzziah ·fight [L against] the Philistines, the Arabs living in Gur Baal, and the Meunites.
