They hearkened therefore to the word of the LORD, and returned to depart, according to the word of the LORD. NIV 24 ‘This is what the LORD says: Do not go up to fight against your brothers, the Israelites. Go home, every one of you, for this is my doing.’ ” So they obeyed the word of the LORD and went home again, as the LORD had ordered.
