Jotham did what was pleasing in the LORD ’s sight. He did everything his father, Uzziah, had done, except that Jotham did not sin by entering the Temple of the LORD . But the people continued in their corrupt ways.
howbeit, he entered not into the temple of the
to burn incense, as his father did; he did according to his good
ways, but not his evil ones:
and the people did yet corruptly;
in sacrificing and burning incense in the high places, ( 2 Kings
15:35 ) which some think Joash himself did, and is meant in
the preceding clause; but the sense given is best.
