2 Chronicles 15:1-3 Common English Bible (CEB)
15 When God’s spirit came upon Azariah, Oded’s son, 2 he confronted Asa: “Listen to me, Asa and all Judah and Benjamin,” he said. “The Lord is with you as long as you are with him. If you seek him, he will be found by you; but if you abandon him, he will abandon you. 3 For a long time Israel was without the true God, without a priest to teach them, and without the Instruction.
