Uzziahn son of Amaziah became king of Judah during Jeroboam's twenty-seventh year as king of Israel.
Uzziah was sixteen years old when he became king, and he ruled fifty-two years in Jerusalem. His mother was named Jecoliah, and she was from Jerusalem.
He did what the Lord said was right, just as his father Amaziah had done.
But the places where gods were worshiped were not removed, so the people still made sacrifices and burned incense there.
The Lord struck Uzziah with a skin disease, which he had until the day he died. So he had to live in a separate house. Jotham, the king's son, was in charge of the palace, and he governed the people of the land.
All the other things Uzziah did are written in the book of the history of the kings of Judah.
Uzziah died and was buried near his ancestors in Jerusalem, and his son Jotham became king in his place.
