2Sixteenyearsold was he when he began to reign , and he reignedtwo and fiftyyears in Jerusalem. And his mother'sname was Jecholiah of Jerusalem.3
And he did that which was right in the sight of the LORD, according to all that his fatherAmaziah had done ;
Save that the high places were not removed : the peoplesacrificed and burnt incense still on the high places.5
And the LORDsmote the king, so that he was a leper unto the day of his death, and dwelt in a severalhouse. And Jotham the king'sson was over the house,judging the people of the land.6
