In the second year of Pekah the son of Remaliah king of Israel, began Jotham the son of Uzziah king of Judah to reign.
Five and twenty years old was he when he began to reign, and he reigned sixteen years in Jerusalem. And his mother's name was Jerusha, the daughter of Zadok.
And he did that which was right in the sight of the LORD; he did according to all that his father Uzziah had done.
However, the high places were not removed: the people sacrificed and burned incense still in the high places. He built the Higher Gate of the house of the LORD.
Now the rest of the acts of Jotham and all that he did, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Judah?
In those days the LORD began to send against Judah, Rezin the king of Syria and Pekah the son of Remaliah.
And Jotham slept with his fathers, and was buried with his fathers in the City of David his father; and Ahaz his son reigned in his stead.
