Azariah King of Judah

1 In the twenty-seventh year of Jeroboam king of Israel, Azariaha son of Amaziah king of Judah began to reign.
2 He was sixteen years old when he became king, and he reigned in Jerusalem fifty-two years. His mother’s name was Jekoliah; she was from Jerusalem.
3 He did what was right in the eyes of the LORD, just as his father Amaziah had done.
4 The high places, however, were not removed; the people continued to offer sacrifices and burn incense there.
5 The LORD afflicted the king with leprosyb until the day he died, and he lived in a separate house.c Jotham the king’s son had charge of the palace and governed the people of the land.
6 As for the other events of Azariah’s reign, and all he did, are they not written in the book of the annals of the kings of Judah?
7 Azariah rested with his ancestors and was buried near them in the City of David. And Jotham his son succeeded him as king.
