Bible: 1 Kings 20:23-26

20:23 Now the advisers 1  of the king of Syria said to him: “Their God is a god of the mountains. That’s why they overpowered us. But if we fight them in the plains, we will certainly overpower them. 20:24 So do this: Dismiss the kings from their command, and replace them with military commanders. 20:25 Muster an army like the one you lost, with the same number of horses and chariots. 2  Then we will fight them in the plains; we will certainly overpower them.” He approved their plan and did as they advised. 3 

20:26 In the spring 4  Ben Hadad mustered the Syrian army 5  and marched to Aphek to fight Israel. 6
