1 In the twenty-seventh year of Jeroboam king of Israel, a Azariah the son of Amaziah, king of Judah, b became king. 2 He was sixteen years old when he became king, and he reigned fifty-two years in Jerusalem. His mother's name was Jecholiah of Jerusalem. 3 And he did what was right in the sight of the LORD, according to all that his father Amaziah had done, 4 c except that the 1 high places were not removed; the people still sacrificed and burned incense on the high places. 5 Then the LORD d struck the king, so that he was a leper until the day of his e death; so he f dwelt in an isolated house. And Jotham the king's son was over the royal house, judging the people of the land. 6 Now the rest of the acts of Azariah, and all that he did, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Judah? 7 So Azariah 2 rested with his fathers, and g they buried him with his fathers in the City of David. Then Jotham his son reigned in his place.New King James Version (NKJV) Copyright © 1982 by Thomas Nelson, Inc.
