King James Version (KJV) New International Version (NIV)
13 And also Maachah his mother, even her he removed from being queen, because she had made an idol in a grove; and Asa destroyed her idol, and burnt it by the brook Kidron. 13 He even deposed his grandmother Maacah from her position as queen mother, because she had made a repulsive Asherah pole. Asa cut the pole down and burned it in the Kidron Valley.
14 But the high places were not removed : nevertheless Asa's heart was perfect with the LORD all his days. 14 Although he did not remove the high places, Asa's heart was fully committed to the LORD all his life.
15 And he brought in the things which his father had dedicated, and the things which himself had dedicated, into the house of the LORD, silver, and gold, and vessels. 15 He brought into the temple of the LORD the silver and gold and the articles that he and his father had dedicated.
16 And there was war between Asa and Baasha king of Israel all their days. 16 There was war between Asa and Baasha king of Israel throughout their reigns.
