Unchecked Copy Box2Ch 26:3 - Uzziah was sixteen years old when he became king, and he reigned in Jerusalem fifty-two years. His mother was Jecoliah from Jerusalem.

Unchecked Copy Box2Ch 26:4 - He did what was pleasing in the LORD’s sight, just as his father, Amaziah, had done.

Unchecked Copy Box2Ch 26:5 - Uzziah sought God during the days of Zechariah, who taught him to fear God.[fn] And as long as the king sought guidance from the LORD, God gave him success.

Unchecked Copy Box2Ch 26:9 - Uzziah built fortified towers in Jerusalem at the Corner Gate, at the Valley Gate, and at the angle in the wall.

Unchecked Copy Box2Ch 26:10 - He also constructed forts in the wilderness and dug many water cisterns, because he kept great herds of livestock in the foothills of Judah[fn] and on the plains. He was also a man who loved the soil. He had many workers who cared for his farms and vineyards, both on the hillsides and in the fertile valleys.

Unchecked Copy Box2Ch 26:11 - Uzziah had an army of well-trained warriors, ready to march into battle, unit by unit. This army had been mustered and organized by Jeiel, the secretary of the army, and his assistant, Maaseiah. They were under the direction of Hananiah, one of the king’s officials.

His fame spread far and wide, for the LORD gave him marvelous help, and he became very powerful.

Unchecked Copy Box2Ch 26:16 - But when he had become powerful, he also became proud, which led to his downfall. He sinned against the LORD his God by entering the sanctuary of the LORD’s Temple and personally burning incense on the incense altar.

Unchecked Copy Box2Ch 26:18 - They confronted King Uzziah and said, “It is not for you, Uzziah, to burn incense to the LORD. That is the work of the priests alone, the descendants of Aaron who are set apart for this work. Get out of the sanctuary, for you have sinned. The LORD God will not honor you for this!”

Unchecked Copy Box2Ch 26:19 - Uzziah, who was holding an incense burner, became furious. But as he was standing there raging at the priests before the incense altar in the LORD’s Temple, leprosy[fn] suddenly broke out on his forehead.

Unchecked Copy Box2Ch 26:20 - When Azariah the high priest and all the other priests saw the leprosy, they rushed him out. And the king himself was eager to get out because the LORD had struck him.

Unchecked Copy Box2Ch 26:21 - So King Uzziah had leprosy until the day he died. He lived in isolation in a separate house, for he was excluded from the Temple of the LORD. His son Jotham was put in charge of the royal palace, and he governed the people of the land.
