ContextThe Prophecy of Azariah
1And the Spirit of God came on Azariah the son of Oded: 2And he went out to meet Asa, and said to him, Hear you me, Asa, and all Judah and Benjamin; The LORD is with you, while you be with him; and if you seek him, he will be found of you; but if you forsake him, he will forsake you. 3Now for a long season Israel has been without the true God, and without a teaching priest, and without law. 4But when they in their trouble did turn to the LORD God of Israel, and sought him, he was found of them. 5And in those times there was no peace to him that went out, nor to him that came in, but great vexations were on all the inhabitants of the countries. 6And nation was destroyed of nation, and city of city: for God did vex them with all adversity. 7Be you strong therefore, and let not your hands be weak: for your work shall be rewarded.
