Chapter 14

Chapter Overview

The piety of Asa, verse 1-5.
His policy, verse 6-8.
His victory over the Ethiopians, verse 9-15.

Verse 1
Quiet - There was no open war, but there were private hostilities between his and Baasha's subjects.

Verse 6
The land had rest - Those have rest indeed, to whom God gives rest; peace indeed, to whom Christ gives peace. We find by experience, it is good to seek the Lord. While we pursue the world, we meet with nothing but vexation.

Verse 7
Before us - In our power.

Verse 9
Ethiopian - Or, the Arabian, as the Hebrew word Cush is commonly used: these being much nearer to Asa than the Ethiopians.

Verse 11
Let not man prevail - If he prevails against us, he prevails, as it were, against thee; because thou art our God. And we rest on thee, and go forth in thy name, which thou hast encouraged us to do.

Verse 12
Smote - With terror, and an unaccountable consternation.

Verse 14
Smote the cities - because they had joined, with Zerah in this war.
