Abi'jah and his people slew them with a great slaughter; so there fell slain of Israel five hundred thousand picked men.
Thus the men of Israel were subdued at that time, and the men of Judah prevailed, because they relied upon the LORD, the God of their fathers.
And Abi'jah pursued Jerobo'am, and took cities from him, Bethel with its villages and Jesha'nah with its villages and Ephron with its villages.
Jerobo'am did not recover his power in the days of Abi'jah; and the LORD smote him, and he died.
But Abi'jah grew mighty. And he took fourteen wives, and had twenty-two sons and sixteen daughters.
The rest of the acts of Abi'jah, his ways and his sayings, are written in the story of the prophet Iddo.
