And Abiam slept with his fathers, and they buried him in the city of David: and Asa, his son, reigned in his stead.
So in the twentieth year of Jeroboam, king of Israel, reigned Asa, king of Juda,
And he reigned one and forty years in Jerusalem. His mother’s name was Maacha, the daughter of Abessalom.
And Asa did that which was right in the sight of the Lord, as did David, his father:
And he took away the effeminate out of the land, and removed all the filth of the idols, which his fathers had made.
