2 Kings 15:7

2 Kings 15:7

So Azariah slept with his fathers
Or died, when he had reigned fifty two years:

and they buried him with his fathers in the city of David;
but not in the sepulchres of the kings, but in the field of the burial, or the burying ground which belonged to them, because he was a leper, ( 2 Chronicles 26:23 ) . Benjamin of Tudela F16 places his grave near the pillar of Absalom, and the fountain of Siloah, near the brook Kidron:

and Jotham his son reigned in his stead;
who reigned sixteen years; a further account of him, and his reign, we have in the latter part of this chapter, after the reigns of several of the kings of Israel.
