Now, go! I myself will help you with your speech, and I'll teach you what you are to say."
No one will be victorious against you for the rest of your life. I'll be with you just like I was with Moses I'll neither fail you nor abandon you.
I've commanded you, haven't I? Be strong and courageous. Don't be fearful or discouraged, because the LORD your God is with you wherever you go."
So the Israelis practiced what the LORD considered to be evil by worshiping Canaanite deities.

The LORD was moved with compassion by their groaning that had been caused by those who were oppressing and persecuting them.
The angel of the LORD appeared to him and told him, "The LORD is with you, you valiant warrior!"

David became more and more esteemed because the LORD God of the Heavenly Armies was with him.
David reigned over all of Israel, administering justice and equity to every one of his people.
Solomon practiced what the LORD considered to be evil by not fully following the LORD, as had his father David.
He practiced the same sins that his father committed before he was born. Unlike his ancestor David, his heart never became devoted to the LORD his God.
He practiced what the LORD considered to be right, but not like his ancestor David did. He acted as his father Joash had done,

Asa practiced what the LORD his God considered to be right
Asa cried out to the LORD his God, telling him, "LORD, there is no one except for you to help between the powerful and the weak. So help us, LORD God, because we're depending on you and have come against this vast group in your name. LORD, you are our God. Let no mere mortal man defeat you!"
Encouraged by what Oded's son Azariah the prophet had said in his prophecy, Asa removed the detestable idols from throughout the entire territories of Judah and Benjamin, and from the cities that he had captured in the hill country of Ephraim.

LORD, remember in David's favor all of his troubles;
Take counsel together, but it will all be for nothing; go ahead and talk, but it will all be for nothing, for God is with us."
Don't be afraid, because I'm with you; don't be anxious, because I am your God. I keep on strengthening you; I'm truly helping you. I'm surely upholding you with my victorious right hand."
"How can you say, "I'm not defiled. I haven't gone after the Baals.'? Look at what you've done in the valley. Know what you have done. You are a swift young camel galloping aimlessly;

teaching them to obey everything that I've commanded you. And remember, I am with you each and every day until the end of the age."
