1 H5971 Then all the people H3063 of Judah H3947 [H8799] took H5818 Uzziah, H8337 H6240 who was sixteen H8141 years H1121 old, H4427 [H8686] and made him king H1 instead of his father H558 Amaziah.
2 H1129 [H8804] He built H359 Eloth, H7725 [H8686] and restored H3063 it to Judah, H310 after H4428 the king H7901 [H8800] slept H1 with his fathers.
3 H8337 H6240 Sixteen H8141 years H1121 old H5818 was Uzziah H4427 [H8800] when he began to reign, H4427 [H8804] and he reigned H2572 fifty H8147 and two H8141 years H3389 in Jerusalem. H517 His mother's H8034 name H3203 also was Jecoliah H3389 of Jerusalem.
4 H6213 [H8799] And he did H3477 that which was right H5869 in the eyes H3068 of the LORD, H1 according to all that his father H558 Amaziah H6213 [H8804] did.
5 H1875 [H8800] And he sought H430 God H3117 in the days H2148 of Zechariah, H995 [H8688] who had understanding H7200 [H8800] in the visions H430 of God: H3117 and as long as H1875 [H8800] he sought H3068 the LORD, H430 God H6743 [H8689] made him to prosper.
6 H3318 [H8799] And he went forth H3898 [H8735] and warred H6430 against the Philistines, H6555 [H8799] and broke down H2346 the wall H1661 of Gath, H2346 and the wall H2996 of Jabneh, H2346 and the wall H795 of Ashdod, H1129 [H8799] and built H5892 cities H795 about Ashdod, H6430 and among the Philistines.
7 H430 And God H5826 [H8799] helped H6430 him against the Philistines, H6163 and against the Arabians H3427 [H8802] that dwelt H1485 in Gurbaal, H4586 and the Mehunims.
8 H5984 And the Ammonites H5414 [H8799] gave H4503 gifts H5818 to Uzziah: H8034 and his name H3212 [H8799] spread abroad H935 [H8800] even to the entrance H4714 of Egypt; H2388 [H8689] for he strengthened H4605 himself exceedingly.
9 H5818 Moreover Uzziah H1129 [H8799] built H4026 towers H3389 in Jerusalem H6438 at the corner H8179 gate, H1516 and at the valley H8179 gate, H4740 and at the turning H2388 [H8762] of the wall, and fortified them.
10 H1129 [H8799] Also he built H4026 towers H4057 in the desert, H2672 [H8799] and dug H7227 many H953 wells: H7227 for he had many H4735 cattle, H8219 both in the low country, H4334 and in the plains: H406 farmers H3755 also, and vinedressers H2022 in the mountains, H3760 and in Carmel: H157 [H8802] for he loved H127 the soil.
11 H5818 Moreover Uzziah H2428 had an army H4421 of fighting H6213 [H8802] men, H3318 [H8802] that went out H6635 to war H1416 by bands, H4557 according to the number H6486 of their reckoning H3027 by the hand H3273 of Jeiel H5608 [H8802] the scribe H4641 and Maaseiah H7860 [H8802] the ruler, H3027 under the hand H2608 of Hananiah, H4428 one of the king's H8269 captains.
12 H4557 The whole number H7218 of the heads H1 of the father's H1368 houses of the mighty men H2428 of valour H505 were two thousand H8337 and six H3967 hundred.
13 H3027 And under their hand H2428 H6635 was an army, H7969 three H3967 hundred H505 thousand H7651 and seven H505 thousand H2568 and five H3967 hundred, H6213 [H8802] that made H4421 war H2428 with mighty H3581 power, H5826 [H8800] to help H4428 the king H341 [H8802] against the enemy.
14 H5818 And Uzziah H3559 [H8686] prepared H6635 for them throughout all the army H4043 shields, H7420 and spears, H3553 and helmets, H8302 and coats of mail, H7198 and bows, H7050 and slings H68 to cast stones.
15 H6213 [H8799] And he made H3389 in Jerusalem H2810 engines, H4284 invented H2803 [H8802] by skilful men, H4026 to be on the towers H6438 and upon the bulwarks, H3384 [H8800] to shoot H2671 arrows H1419 and great H68 stones. H8034 And his name H3318 [H8799] spread H7350 far abroad; H6381 [H8689] for he was marvellously H5826 [H8736] helped, H3588 till H2388 [H8804] he was strong.
16 H2393 But when he was strong, H3820 his heart H1361 [H8804] was lifted up H7843 [H8687] to his decadence: H4603 [H8799] for he transgressed H3068 against the LORD H430 his God, H935 [H8799] and went H1964 into the temple H3068 of the LORD H6999 [H8687] to burn incense H4196 upon the altar H7004 of incense.
17 H5838 And Azariah H3548 the priest H935 [H8799] went in H310 after H8084 him, and with him eighty H3548 priests H3068 of the LORD, H2428 that were valiant H1121 men:
18 H5975 [H8799] And they withstood H5818 Uzziah H4428 the king, H559 [H8799] and said H5818 to him, It appertaineth not to thee, Uzziah, H6999 [H8687] to burn incense H3068 to the LORD, H3548 but to the priests H1121 the sons H175 of Aaron, H6942 [H8794] that are sanctified H6999 [H8687] to burn incense: H3318 [H8798] go out H4720 of the sanctuary; H4603 [H8804] for thou hast trespassed; H3519 neither shall it be for thy glory H3068 from the LORD H430 God.
19 H5818 Then Uzziah H2196 [H8799] was angry, H4730 and had a censer H3027 in his hand H6999 [H8687] to burn incense: H2196 [H8800] and while he was angry H3548 with the priests, H6883 the leprosy H2224 [H8804] even rose up H4696 in his forehead H6440 at the face of H3548 the priests H1004 in the house H3068 of the LORD, H7004 from beside the incense H4196 altar.
20 H5838 And Azariah H7218 the chief H3548 priest, H3548 and all the priests, H6437 [H8799] looked H6879 [H8794] upon him, and, behold, he was leprous H4696 in his forehead, H926 [H8686] and they thrust him out H1765 [H8738] from there; yea, himself hastened H3318 [H8800] also to go out, H3068 because the LORD H5060 [H8765] had smitten him.
21 H5818 And Uzziah H4428 the king H6879 [H8794] was a leper H3117 to the day H4194 of his death, H3427 [H8799] and dwelt in H2669 H2669 [H8675] a separate H1004 house, H6879 [H8794] being a leper; H1504 [H8738] for he was cut off H1004 from the house H3068 of the LORD: H3147 and Jotham H1121 his son H4428 was over the king's H1004 house, H8199 [H8802] judging H5971 the people H776 of the land.
22 H3499 Now the rest H1697 of the acts H5818 of Uzziah, H7223 first H314 and last, H3789 [H8804] were written H3470 by Isaiah H5030 the prophet, H1121 the son H531 of Amoz.
23 H5818 So Uzziah H7901 [H8799] slept H1 with his fathers, H6912 [H8799] and they buried H1 him with his fathers H7704 in the field H6900 of the burial H4428 which belonged to the kings; H559 [H8804] for they said, H6879 [H8794] He is a leper: H3147 and Jotham H1121 his son H4427 [H8799] reigned in his stead.
