In the second year of the reign of Pekah son of Remaliah as king of Israel, Jotham son of Uzziah became king of Judah
at the age of twenty-five, and he ruled in Jerusalem for sixteen years. His mother was Jerusha, the daughter of Zadok.
Following the example of his father Uzziah, Jotham did what was pleasing to the Lord.
But the pagan places of worship were not destroyed, and the people continued to offer sacrifices and burn incense there. It was Jotham who built the North Gate of the Temple.
Everything else that Jotham did is recorded in [The History of the Kings of Judah.]
It was while he was king that the Lord first sent King Rezin of Syria and King Pekah of Israel to attack Judah.
Jotham died and was buried in the royal tombs in David's City, and his son Ahaz succeeded him as king.
