So Abi'jah slept with his fathers, and they buried him in the city of David; and Asa his son reigned in his stead. In his days the land had rest for ten years.
And Asa did what was good and right in the eyes of the LORD his God.
He took away the foreign altars and the high places, and broke down the pillars and hewed down the Ashe'rim,
and commanded Judah to seek the LORD, the God of their fathers, and to keep the law and the commandment.
He also took out of all the cities of Judah the high places and the incense altars. And the kingdom had rest under him.
He built fortified cities in Judah, for the land had rest. He had no war in those years, for the LORD gave him peace.
