“He swallows riches,
But will vomit them up;
God will expel them from his belly.
But You, O God, will bring them down to the pit of destruction;
Men of bloodshed and deceit will not live out half their days.
But I will trust in You.
By the transgression of a land many are its princes,
But by a man of understanding and knowledge, so it endures.
A man who is laden with the guilt of human blood
Will be a fugitive until death; let no one support him.
Asa was the father of Jehoshaphat, Jehoshaphat the father of Joram, and Joram the father of Uzziah.
