Revised Standard Version (RSV) New International Version (NIV)
1 In the twenty-seventh year of Jerobo'am king of Israel Azari'ah the son of Amazi'ah, king of Judah, began to reign. 1 In the twenty-seventh year of Jeroboam king of Israel, Azariah son of Amaziah king 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 Jecoli'ah of Jerusalem. 2 He was sixteen years old when he became king, and he reigned in Jerusalem fifty-two years. His mother's name was Jecoliah; she was from Jerusalem.
3 And he did what was right in the eyes of the LORD, according to all that his father Amazi'ah had done. 3 He did what was right in the eyes of the LORD, just as his father Amaziah had done.
4 Nevertheless the high places were not taken away; the people still sacrificed and burned incense on the high places. 4 The high places, however, were not removed; the people continued to offer sacrifices and burn incense there.
5 And the LORD smote the king, so that he was a leper to the day of his death, and he dwelt in a separate house. And Jotham the king's son was over the household, governing the people of the land. 5 The LORD afflicted the king with leprosy until the day he died, and he lived in a separate house. Jotham the king's son had charge of the palace and governed the people of the land.
6 Now the rest of the acts of Azari'ah, and all that he did, are they not written in the Book of the Chronicles of the Kings of Judah? 6 As for the other events of Azariah's reign, and all he did, are they not written in the book of the annals of the kings of Judah?
7 And Azari'ah slept with his fathers, and they buried him with his fathers in the city of David, and Jotham his son reigned in his stead. 7 Azariah rested with his fathers and was buried near them in the City of David. And Jotham his son succeeded him as king.
