Asa's Reforms

8 Now when Asa heard these words and the prophecy which Azariah the son of Oded the prophet spoke, he took courage and removed the abominable idols from all the land of Judah and Benjamin and from 1the cities which he had captured in the hill country of Ephraim. 2He then restored the altar of the LORD which was in front of the porch of the LORD.
