2 Chronicles 27 (The Darby Translation)

View In My Bible
1 Jotham was twenty-five years old when he began to reign; and he reigned sixteen years in Jerusalem; and his mother's name was Jerushah, daughter of Zadok. 2 And he did what was right in the sight of Jehovah, according to all that his father Uzziah had done; only he entered not into the temple of Jehovah. And the people still acted corruptly. a 3 It was he who built the upper gate of the house of Jehovah, and on the wall of Ophel b he built much. 4 And he built cities in the hill-country of Judah, and in the forests he built castles and towers. 5 And he fought against the king of the children of Ammon, and overcame them. And the children of Ammon gave him the same year a hundred talents of silver, and ten thousand measures c of wheat, and ten thousand of barley. This the children of Ammon brought again to him also in the second year, and in the third. 6 And Jotham became strong, for he prepared d his ways before Jehovah his God. 7 And the rest of the acts of Jotham, and all his wars, and his ways, behold, they are written in the book of the kings of Israel and Judah. 8 He was twenty-five years old when he began to reign; and he reigned sixteen years in Jerusalem. 9 And Jotham slept with his fathers, and they buried him in the city of David; and Ahaz his son reigned in his stead.
