First and Second Chronicles repeatedly declares whether a king did what was right or evil in the sight of the Lord. Of King Asa, the Bible says:

Asa did what was good and right in the eyes of the LORD his God, for he removed the altars of the foreign gods and the high places, and broke down the sacred pillars and cut down the wooden images. He commanded Judah to seek the LORD God of their fathers, and to observe the law and the commandment. He also removed the high places and the incense altars from all the cities of Judah, and the kingdom was quiet under him. And he built fortified cities in Judah, for the land had rest; he had no war in those years, because the LORD had given him rest.

– 2 Chronicles 14.2–6

Asa did what was good and right in the eyes of the Lord because the king removed false religion, told others to follow the Lord. For that, Judah enjoyed peace and quiet for many years.
