Azariah rules Judah

1 Azariah, Amaziah's son, became king of Judah in the twenty-seventh year of Israel's King Jeroboam. 2 He was 16 years old when he became king, and he ruled for fifty-two years in Jerusalem. His mother's name was Jecoliah; she was from Jerusalem. 3 He did what was right in the LORD's eyes, just as his father Amaziah had done. 4 However, the shrines weren't removed. People kept sacrificing and burning incense at them. 5 Now the LORD afflicted the king with a skin disease that he had until his dying day, so he lived in a separate house.a The king's son Jotham supervised the palace administration and governed the people of the land. 6 The rest of Azariah's deeds and all he accomplished, aren't they written in the official records of Judah's kings? 7 Azariah died and was buried with his ancestors in David's City. His son Jotham succeeded him as king.
