5 Then Amaziah brought all the people in Judah together. He chose leaders for their clans. Some were leaders of 1,000 men and some were leaders of 100 men from Judah or from Benjamin. He counted 300,000 men who were 20 years old or older. They could fight with spear and shield. 6 And he paid 3,500 kilos (7,800 pounds) of silver for 100,000 very brave soldiers from Israel to fight for him.
