2nd Chronicles, Chapter 14
The piety of Asa, ver. 1 - 5. His policy, ver. 6 - 8. His victory over the Ethiopians, ver. 9 - 15.

1: Quiet - There was no open war, but there were private hostilities between his and Baasha's subjects.

6: The land had rest - Those have rest indeed, to whom God gives rest; peace indeed, to whom Christ gives peace. We find by experience, it is good to seek the Lord. While we pursue the world, we meet with nothing but vexation.

7: Before us - In our power.

9: Ethiopian - Or, the Arabian, as the Hebrew word Cush is commonly used: these being much nearer to Asa than the Ethiopians.

11: Let not man prevail - If he prevails against us, he prevails, as it were, against thee; because thou art our God. And we rest on thee, and go forth in thy name, which thou hast encouraged us to do.

12: Smote - With terror, and an unaccountable consternation.

14: Smote the cities - because they had joined, with Zerah in this war.
