So Abijah went to rest with his fathers, and they put him into the earth in the town of David, and Asa his son became king in his place; in his time the land was quiet for ten years.
And Asa did what was good and right in the eyes of the Lord his God;
For he took away the altars of strange gods and the high places, and had the upright stones broken and the wood pillars cut down;
And he made Judah go after the Lord, the God of their fathers, and keep his laws and his orders.
And he took away the high places and the sun-images from all the towns of Judah; and the kingdom was quiet under his rule.
He made walled towns in Judah, for the land was quiet and there were no wars in those years, because the Lord had given him rest.
