18 Then (A)Asa took all the silver and the gold which were left in the treasuries of the house of the Lord and the treasuries of the king’s house, and delivered them into the hand of his servants. And (B)King Asa sent them to Ben-hadad the son of Tabrimmon, the son of Hezion, king of Aram, who lived in (C)Damascus, saying, 19 Let there be a (D)treaty between [a]you and me, as between my father and your father. Behold, I have sent you a present of silver and gold; go, break your treaty with Baasha king of Israel so that he will withdraw from me.” 20 So Ben-hadad listened to King Asa and sent the commanders of his armies against the cities of Israel, and [b]conquered (E)Ijon, (F)Dan, (G)Abel-beth-maacah and all (H)Chinneroth, besides all the land of Naphtali.
