2 Chronicles 16 ©
Asa maketh a league with Ben-hadad king of Syria against Baasha, who is thereby diverted from the building of Ramah; Asa with the stones thereof buildeth Geba and Mizpah. Hanani the seer, reproving him for applying to the Syrians for aid rather than to God, is imprisoned by him. Asa in his sickness seeketh not to God, but to the physicians. His death and burial.
And it came to pass, when Baasha heard it, that he left off building of Ramah, and let his work cease.
For the meyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, 4to shew himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him. Herein thou nhast done foolishly: therefore from henceforth thou shalt have wars.
¶And Asa slept with his fathers, and died in the one and fortieth year of his reign.
And uthey buried him in his own sepulchres, which he had 6made for himself in the city of David, and laid him in the bed which was filled with vsweet odours and *divers kinds of spices prepared by the apothecaries' art: and they made a very great wburning for him.
