2 Chronicles 25:5-11

[5] Moreover Amaziah  Judah  together,  and made  them captains  over thousands,  and captains  over hundreds,  according to the houses  of their fathers,  throughout all Judah  and Benjamin:  and he numbered  them from twenty  years  old  and above,  and found  them three  hundred  thousand  men, able to go forth  to war,  that could handle  spear  and shield.  [6] He hired  also an hundred  thousand  mighty  men of valour  out of Israel  for an hundred  talents  of silver.  [7] But there came  a man  of God  to him, saying,  O king,  let not the army  of Israel  go  is not with Israel,  to wit, with all the children  of Ephraim.  [8] But if thou wilt go,  do  it, be strong  for the battle:  God  shall make thee fall  before  the enemy:  for God  hath  power  to help,  and to cast down.  [9] And Amaziah  said  to the man  of God,  But what shall we do  for the hundred  talents  which I have given  to the army  of Israel?  And the man  of God  answered,  The LORD  is  able to give  thee much more  than this. [10] Then Amaziah  separated  them, to wit, the army  that was come  to him out of Ephraim,  home  wherefore their anger  was greatly  kindled  against Judah,  and they returned  home  in great  anger.  [11] And Amaziah  strengthened  himself, and led forth  his people,  to the valley  of salt,  and smote  of the children  of Seir  ten  thousand.
