However, a man of God came to him and said, "King, do not let Israel's army go with you, for the Lord is not with Israel-all the Ephraimites.
But if you go [with them], do it! Be strong for battle! [But] God will make you stumble before the enemy, for God has the power to help or to make one stumble.a9
Then Amaziah said to the man of God, "What should I do about the 7,500 poundsb of silver I gave to Israel's division?" The man of God replied, "The Lord is able to give you much more than this."
So Amaziah released the division that came to him from Ephraim to go home. But they got very angry with Judah and returned home in a fierce rage.
