7 And at that time Hanani the seer came to Asa king of Judah and said to him, “On account of your reliance upon the king of Aram,b and since you did not rely on Yahweh your God, therefore the troops of the king of Aramc escaped from your hand. 8 Were not the Cushites and Libyans a mighty army with very abundant chariots and horsemen? And because of your reliance on Yahweh he gave them into your hand. 9 For the eyes of Yahweh roam throughout all the earth to strengthen those whose heart is fully devoted to him. You have been foolish in this, for from now on you will have wars.”
10 Then Asa was angry with the seer and put him in ⌊the prison⌋,d for he was enraged with him concerning this. And Asa oppressed some of the people at that time.
