2 Chronicles 29:8-10 New Life Version (NLV)
8 So the Lord was angry with Judah and Jerusalem. He has made them an object of fear and wonder and shame, as you see with your own eyes. 9 See, our fathers have fallen by the sword. And our sons, our daughters and our wives have been taken away to a strange land because of this. 10 Now it is in my heart to make an agreement with the Lord God of Israel, that His burning anger may turn away from us.
