And Amaziahsaid to the man of God, But what shall we do for the hundredtalents which I have given to the armya of Israel? And the man of Godanswered , The LORDis able to give thee much more than this.
Then Amaziahseparated them, to wit, the army that was come to him out of Ephraim, to gohomeagain :b wherefore their anger was greatlykindled against Judah, and they returnedhome in greatanger.
