What does 2 Kings 15:34 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
2 Kings 15:34

And he did that which was right in the sight of the Lord
Jarchi, in ( 2 Chronicles 27:2 ) , observes, from a writer of theirs, that in all the kings of Judah before him, even in the best, some sins were found; but in Jotham there was nothing scandalous and reproachful; and it is a high character Josephus F9 gives of him, that there was no virtue wanting in him; he was pious towards God, just towards men, and careful of the public good; but the inspired historian chiefly respects matters of religious worship; he did not give into idolatry:

he did according to all that his father Uzziah had done;
that is, according to what was well done by him; he did not imitate him in going into the temple to burn incense, which is particularly excepted. ( 2 Chronicles 27:2 ) .
