Everything else about Pekah--everything he did--is written in the official records of the kings of Israel.
In the second year that King Pekah, son of Remaliah, ruled Israel, Jotham, son of Azariah, began to rule as king of Judah.
He was 25 years old when he began to rule. He ruled for 16 years in Jerusalem. His mother was Jerusha, daughter of Zadok.
He did what the LORD considered right, as his father Azariah had done.
But the illegal places of worship were not torn down. The people continued to offer sacrifices and burn incense at these worship sites. Jotham built the Upper Gate of the LORD's temple.
Isn't everything else about Jotham--everything he did--written in the official records of the kings of Judah?
In those days the LORD began to use King Rezin of Aram and Pekah, son of Remaliah, to attack Judah.
Jotham lay down in death with his ancestors and was buried with them in the city of his ancestor David. His son Ahaz succeeded him as king.
