2. The seer who rebuked Asa king of Judah, 941 B.C., for buying the alliance of Benhadad I. of Syria, to help him against Baasha of Israel, instead of "relying on the Lord his God," "whose eyes run to and fro throughout the whole earth to show Himself strong in behalf of those whose heart is perfect toward Him" (Jer 17:5). (See ASA.) So Asa lost the victory over Syria itself which faith would have secured to him. Hanani was imprisoned for his faithfulness (2Ch 16:1-4,7-10; compare Jer 20:2; Mt 14:3). But Asa only thereby sealed his own punishment; by compromising principle to escape war he brought on himself perpetual wars (1Ki 15:32). Jehu his son was equally faithful in reproving Baasha and Asa's son Jehoshaphat (1Ki 16:1,7; 2Ch 19:2; 20:34).

3. Ezr 10:19-20.
