2 Kings 15:1-7 NRS

1 In the twenty-seventh year of King Jeroboam of Israel King Azariah son of Amaziah of Judah began to reign.
2 He was sixteen years old when he began to reign, and he reigned fifty-two years in Jerusalem. His mother's name was Jecoliah of Jerusalem.
3 He did what was right in the sight of the Lord, just as his father Amaziah had done.
4 Nevertheless the high places were not taken away; the people still sacrificed and made offerings on the high places.
5 The Lord struck the king, so that he was leprous a to the day of his death, and lived in a separate house. Jotham the king's son was in charge of the palace, governing the people of the land.
