Asa and his army were now returning in triumph from the battle, laden with spoils and adorned with the trophies of victory, the pious prince, we may now suppose, studying what he should render to God for this great favour. He knew that the work of reformation, which he had begun in his kingdom, was not perfected; his enemies abroad were subdued, but there were more dangerous enemies at home that were yet unconquered—idols in Judah and Benjamin: his victory over the former emboldened him vigorously to renew his attack upon the latter. Now here we have, I. The message which God sent to him, by a prophet, to engage him to, and encourage him in, the prosecution of his reformation, 2 Chron. 15:1-7. II. The life which this message put into that good cause, and their proceedings in pursuance of it. Idols removed, 2 Chron. 15:8. The spoil dedicated to God, 2 Chron. 15:9-11. A covenant made with God, and a law for the punishing of idolaters, 2 Chron. 15:12-15. A reformation at court, 2 Chron. 15:16. Dedicated things brought into the house of God, 2 Chron. 15:18. All well, but that the high places were permitted, 2 Chron. 15:17. And the effect of this was great peace, 2 Chron. 15:19.
