And, behold, G-d is with us at our head, and His priests with the trumpets of alarm to sound an alarm against you. O children of Israel, fight ye not against HaShem, the G-d of your fathers; for ye shall not prosper.'
But Jeroboam caused an ambushment to come about behind them; so they were before Judah, and the ambushment was behind them.
And when Judah looked back, behold, the battle was before and behind them; and they cried unto HaShem, and the priests sounded with the trumpets.
Then the men of Judah gave a shout; and as the men of Judah shouted, it came to pass, that G-d smote Jeroboam and all Israel before Abijah and Judah.
And the children of Israel fled before Judah; and G-d delivered them into their hand.
And Abijah and his people slew them with a great slaughter; so there fell down slain of Israel five hundred thousand chosen men.
Thus the children of Israel were brought under at that time, and the children of Judah prevailed, because they relied upon HaShem, the G-d of their fathers.
And Abijah pursued after Jeroboam, and took cities from him, Bethel with the towns thereof, and Jeshanah with the towns thereof, and Ephrain with the towns thereof.
Neither did Jeroboam recover strength again in the days of Abijah; and HaShem smote him, and he died.
But Abijah waxed mighty, and took unto himself fourteen wives, and begot twenty and two sons, and sixteen daughters.
And the rest of the acts of Abijah, and his ways, and his sayings, are written in the commentary of the prophet Iddo.
