2 Chronicles 11:13

2 Chronicles 11:13 In-Context

11 He made the fortresses strong, and put commanders in them, and stores of food, oil, and wine.
12 And he put shields and spears in all the cities and made them very strong. So he held Judah and Benjamin.
13 And the priests and the Levites who were in all Israel presented themselves to him from all places where they lived.
14 For the Levites left their common lands and their holdings and came to Judah and Jerusalem, because Jeroboam and his sons cast them out from serving as priests of the LORD,
15 and he appointed his own priests for the high places and for the goat idols and for the calves that he had made.
