Yet it was true, that the men of Judah had the priests, ordinances, and worship of Jehovah among them; that there were numbers of pious worshippers in the land; that theirs was the more righteous cause; that Jehovah was on their side as their Captain, while Israel fought against him; and that the presence of the priests with the sacred trumpets was a token of His presence and favour. 2 Chronicles 11:16, 2 Chronicles 11:17, Exodus 19:5, Exodus 19:6, Zechariah 13:9
