Then Zerah the Cushite came against them with an army of one million men and three hundred[a] chariots. They came as far as Mareshah. 10 So Asa marched out against him and lined up in battle formation in Zephathah Valley at Mareshah.(A)

11 Then Asa cried out to the Lord his God,(B)Lord, there is no one besides you to help the mighty and those without strength. Help us, Lord our God, for we depend on you,(C) and in your name we have come against this large army. Lord, you are our God. Do not let a mere mortal hinder you.”

12 So the Lord routed the Cushites before Asa and before Judah,(D) and the Cushites fled. 13 Then Asa and the people who were with him pursued them as far as Gerar.(E) The Cushites fell until they had no survivors, for they were crushed before the Lord and his army. So the people of Judah carried off a great supply of loot.
