2 Kings 15:1-7 GNT

1 In the twenty-seventh year of the reign of King Jeroboam II of Israel, Uzziah son of Amaziah became king of Judah
2 at the age of sixteen, and he ruled in Jerusalem for fifty-two years. His mother was Jecoliah from Jerusalem.
3 Following the example of his father, he did what was pleasing to the Lord.
4 But the pagan places of worship were not destroyed, and the people continued to offer sacrifices and burn incense there.
5 The Lord struck Uzziah with a dreaded skin disease that stayed with him the rest of his life. He lived in a separate house, relieved of all duties, while his son Jotham governed the country.
6 Everything else that Uzziah did is recorded in [The History of the Kings of Judah.]
7 Uzziah died and was buried in the royal burial ground in David's City, and his son Jotham succeeded him as king. 1
