New Revised Standard (NRS) New International Version (NIV)
1 Jotham was twenty-five years old when he began to reign; he reigned sixteen years in Jerusalem. His mother's name was Jerushah daughter of Zadok. 1 Jotham was twenty-five years old when he became king, and he reigned in Jerusalem sixteen years. His mother's name was Jerusha daughter of Zadok.
2 He did what was right in the sight of the Lord just as his father Uzziah had done—only he did not invade the temple of the Lord. But the people still followed corrupt practices. 2 He did what was right in the eyes of the LORD, just as his father Uzziah had done, but unlike him he did not enter the temple of the LORD. The people, however, continued their corrupt practices.
3 He built the upper gate of the house of the Lord, and did extensive building on the wall of Ophel. 3 Jotham rebuilt the Upper Gate of the temple of the LORD and did extensive work on the wall at the hill of Ophel.
4 Moreover he built cities in the hill country of Judah, and forts and towers on the wooded hills. 4 He built towns in the Judean hills and forts and towers in the wooded areas.
5 He fought with the king of the Ammonites and prevailed against them. The Ammonites gave him that year one hundred talents of silver, ten thousand cors of wheat and ten thousand of barley. The Ammonites paid him the same amount in the second and the third years. 5 Jotham made war on the king of the Ammonites and conquered them. That year the Ammonites paid him a hundred talents of silver, ten thousand cors of wheat and ten thousand cors of barley. The Ammonites brought him the same amount also in the second and third years.
6 So Jotham became strong because he ordered his ways before the Lord his God. 6 Jotham grew powerful because he walked steadfastly before the LORD his God.
7 Now the rest of the acts of Jotham, and all his wars and his ways, are written in the Book of the Kings of Israel and Judah. 7 The other events in Jotham's reign, including all his wars and the other things he did, are written in the book of the kings of Israel and Judah.
8 He was twenty-five years old when he began to reign; he reigned sixteen years in Jerusalem. 8 He was twenty-five years old when he became king, and he reigned in Jerusalem sixteen years.
9 Jotham slept with his ancestors, and they buried him in the city of David; and his son Ahaz succeeded him. 9 Jotham rested with his fathers and was buried in the City of David. And Ahaz his son succeeded him as king.
