2 Chronicles 14:6-7

6He built afortified cities in Judah, for the land had rest. He had no war in those years, bfor the Lord gave him peace. 7And he said to Judah, “Let us build these cities and surround them with cwalls and towers, gates and bars. The land is still ours, because we have sought the Lord our God. We have sought him, dand he has given us peace on every side.” So they built and prospered.
