Azariah King of Judah

15:1-7pp -- 2Ch 26:3-4,21-23

1 In the twenty-seventh year of Jeroboam king of Israel, Azariaha1 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 right2 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 afflicted3 the king with leprosyb until the day he died, and he lived in a separate house.c4 Jotham5 the king's son had charge of the palace6 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 rested7 with his ancestors and was buried near them in the City of David. And Jotham8 his son succeeded him as king.
