King Asa builds fortified cities (2 Chr 14:6-14:7)

“King Asa built fortified cities in Judah while the land had rest. He had no war in those years. Yahweh gave him peace. He said to Judah. ‘Let us build these cities. Let us surround them with walls, towers, gates and bars. The land is still ours, because we have sought Yahweh our God. We have sought him. He has given us peace on every side.’ So they built and prospered.”

Like his father, King Abijah, he wanted to fortify the cities. Yahweh had given him and Judah peace. So they fortified their cities with walls, towers, and gates. They built things and prospered because Yahweh had given peace to all.
