The victorious battle over King Jeroboam (2 Chr 13:13-13:18)

“King Jeroboam of Israel had sent an ambush around to come on them from behind. Thus his troops were in front of Judah. The ambush was behind them. When Judah turned, the battle was in front of them and behind them. They cried out to Yahweh. The priests blew the trumpets. Then the people of Judah raised the battle shout. When the people of Judah shouted, God defeated King Jeroboam and all Israel before King Abijah and Judah. The Israelites fled before Judah. God gave them into their hands. King Abijah and his army defeated them with a great slaughter. Five hundred thousand picked men of Israel fell slain. Thus the Israelites were subdued at that time. The people of Judah prevailed, because they relied upon Yahweh, the God of their ancestors.”

This battle is not found anywhere else in the biblical literature. King Jeroboam was going to ambush King Abijah from behind. However, when the men of Judah saw this, they cried out to Yahweh. The priests sounded the trumpets. The people of Judah shouted. Then God defeated King Jeroboam and Israel so that the men of Israel fled. King Abijah and his army killed 500,000 men. Wow! What a number, a half a million people, over 80% of the Israelite warriors. Who is left? Obviously, the Israelites were subdued, but there is no mention of the death of King Jeroboam. They were successful because they relied on Yahweh.
