2 Chronicles 29:8-10 Living Bible (TLB)
8 Therefore, the wrath of the Lord has been upon Judah and Jerusalem. He has caused us to be objects of horror, amazement, and contempt, as you see us today. 9 Our fathers have been killed in war, and our sons and daughters and wives are in captivity because of this.
10 “But now I want to make a covenant with the Lord God of Israel so that his fierce anger will turn away from us.
