Behold°, I have sent° you silver° and gold°; go°, break° your treaty° with Baasha° king° of Israel° so that he will withdraw° from me.” 4 So Ben-hadad° listened° to King° Asa° and sent° the commanders° of his armies° against° the cities° of Israel°, and they Iconquered° Ijon°, Dan°, Abel-maim° and all° athe IIstore° cities° of Naphtali°. 5 When Baasha° heard° [of it], he ceased° Ifortifying° Ramah° and stopped° his work°. 6 Then King° Asa° brought° all° Judah°, and they carried° away the stones° of Ramah° and its timber° with which° Baasha° had been building°, and with them he Ifortified° Geba° and Mizpah°.

Asa, by the aid of the Syrians, diverteth Baasha from building of Ramah.
1 ¶ In the sixº and thirtiethº yearº of the reignº of Asaº Baashaº kingº of Israelº came upºª against² Judah,º and builtºª² Ramah,º to the intent that¹ he might letºª none² go outºª or come inºª to Asaº kingº of Judah.º 2 Then Asaº brought outºª silverº and goldº out of the treasuresº² of the houseº of the LORDº and of the king'sº house,º and sentºª to² Benhadadº kingº of Syria,º that dweltºª at Damascus,º saying,ºª 3 [There is] a leagueº between² me and thee, as [there was] between² my fatherº and thy father:º behold,² I have sentºª thee silverº and gold;º go,¹ª² breakºª thy leagueº with² Baashaº kingº of Israel,º that he may departºª from²² me. 4 And Benhadadº hearkenedºª unto² kingº Asa,º and sentºª² the captainsº of his² armiesº against² the citiesº of Israel;º and they smoteºª² Ijon,º and Dan,º and Abelmaim,º and all² the storeº citiesº of Naphtali.º 5 And it came to pass,² when Baashaº heardºª [it], that he left offºª buildingºª²² of Ramah,º and let² his workº cease.ºª 6 Then Asaº the kingº tookºª² all² Judah;º and they carried awayºª² the stonesº of Ramah,º and the timberº thereof, wherewith² Baashaº was building;ºª and he builtºª therewith² Gebaº and Mizpah.º
