23 So Uzziah slept with his fathers, and they buried him with his fathers rin the field of the burial which belonged to the kings; for they said, He is a leper: and Jotham his son reigned in his stead.
27 *Jotham awas twenty and five years old when he began to reign, and he reigned sixteen years in Jerusalem. His mother’s name also was Jerushah, the daughter of Zadok. 2 And he did that which was right in the sight of the Lord, according to all that his father Uzziah did: howbeit bhe entered not into the temple of the Lord. And the people did yet corruptly. 3 He built the chigh gate of the house of the Lord, and on the wall of d||Ophel he built much. 4 Moreover he built cities in the mountains of Judah, and in the forests he built ecastles and towers. 5 He fought also with the king of the fAmmonites, and prevailed against them. And the children of Ammon gave him the same year an hundred talents of silver, and ten thousand gmeasures of wheat, and ten thousand of barley. †So much did the children of Ammon pay unto him, both the second year, and the third. 6 So Jotham became mighty, hbecause he ||prepared his ways before the Lord his God. 7 iNow the rest of the acts of Jotham, and all his wars, and his ways, lo, they are written in the book of the kings of Israel and Judah. 8 kHe was five and twenty years old when he began to reign, and reigned sixteen years in Jerusalem. 9 *lAnd Jotham slept with his fathers, and they buried him in the city of David: and Ahaz his son reigned in his stead.
