Azariah Reigns in Judah

2 Kings 15

1 IN THE twenty-seventh year of Jeroboam [II] king of Israel, Azariah (Uzziah) son of Amaziah king of Judah began to reign. 2 He was sixteen years old when he began his fifty-two-year reign in Jerusalem. His mother was Jecoliah of Jerusalem. 3 He did right in the Lord's sight, in keeping with all his father Amaziah had done-- 4 Except the high places were not removed; the people sacrificed and burned incense still on the high places. 5 And the Lord smote the king, so that he was a leper to his dying day, and dwelt in a separate house. Jotham the king's son was over the household, judging the people of the land. 6 The rest of Azariah's acts, all that he did, are they not written in the Book of the Chronicles of the Kings of Judah? 7 Azariah slept with his fathers, and they buried him with them in the City of David. Jotham his son reigned in his stead.
