2 Chronicles 13:16 In-Context

14 And when Judah looked, behold, the battle was in front of and behind them. And they cried to the LORD, and the priests blew the trumpets.
15 Then the men of Judah raised the battle shout. And when the men of Judah shouted, God defeated Jeroboam and all Israel before Abijah and Judah.
16 The men of Israel fled before Judah, and God gave them into their hand.
17 Abijah and his people struck them with great force, so there fell slain of Israel 500,000 chosen men.
18 Thus the men of Israel were subdued at that time, and the men of Judah prevailed, because they relied on the LORD, the God of their fathers.
