strkjv@2Chronicles:26:1 @ Then all the people of Judah Y@huwdah# took Uzziah, who was sixteen shesh# years old, and made him king in the room of his father Amaziah.
strkjv@2Chronicles:26:2 @ He built Eloth, and restored it to Judah Y@huwdah#, after that the king slept with his fathers.
strkjv@2Chronicles:26:3 @ Sixteen shesh# years old was Uzziah when he began to reign, and he reigned fifty and two years in Jerusalem Y@ruwshalaim#. His mothers name also was Jecoliah Y@kolyah# of Jerusalem Y@ruwshalaim#.
strkjv@2Chronicles:26:4 @ And he did that which was right in the sight of the LORD Y@hovah#, according to all that his father Amaziah did.
strkjv@2Chronicles:26:5 @ And he sought God in the days of Zechariah Z@karyah#, who had understanding in the visions of God: and as long as he sought the LORD Y@hovah#, God made him to prosper.
strkjv@2Chronicles:26:6 @ And he went forth and warred against the Philistines P@lishtiy#, and brake down the wall of Gath, and the wall of Jabneh, and the wall of Ashdod, and built cities about Ashdod, and among the Philistines P@lishtiy#.
strkjv@2Chronicles:26:7 @ And God helped him against the Philistines P@lishtiy#, and against the Arabians that dwelt in Gurbaal Guwr-Ba'al#, and the Mehunims M@#uwniy#.
strkjv@2Chronicles:26:8 @ And the Ammonites gave gifts to Uzziah: and his name spread abroad even to the entering in of Egypt; for he strengthened himself exceedingly.
strkjv@2Chronicles:26:9 @ Moreover Uzziah built towers in Jerusalem Y@ruwshalaim# at the corner gate, and at the valley gate, and at the turning of the wall, and fortified them.
strkjv@2Chronicles:26:10 @ Also he built towers in the desert, and digged many wells: for he had much cattle, both in the low country, and in the plains: husbandmen also, and vine dressers in the mountains, and in Carmel: for he loved husbandry.
strkjv@2Chronicles:26:11 @ Moreover Uzziah had an host of fighting men, that went out to war by bands, according to the number of their account by the hand of Jeiel Y@#iy'el# the scribe and Maaseiah the ruler, under the hand of Hananiah, one of the kings captains.
strkjv@2Chronicles:26:12 @ The whole number of the chief of the fathers of the mighty men of valour were two thousand and six hundred.
strkjv@2Chronicles:26:13 @ And under their hand was an army chayil#, three hundred thousand and seven thousand and five hundred, that made war with mighty power, to help the king against the enemy.

strkjv@2Chronicles:26:15 @ And he made in Jerusalem Y@ruwshalaim# engines, invented by cunning men, to be on the towers and upon the bulwarks, to shoot arrows and great stones withal. And his name spread far abroad; for he was marvellously helped, till he was strong.
strkjv@2Chronicles:26:16 @ But when he was strong, his heart was lifted up to his destruction: for he transgressed against the LORD Y@hovah# his God, and went into the temple of the LORD Y@hovah# to burn incense upon the altar of incense.
strkjv@2Chronicles:26:17 @ And Azariah the priest went in after him, and with him fourscore priests of the LORD Y@hovah#, that were valiant men:
strkjv@2Chronicles:26:18 @ And they withstood Uzziah the king, and said unto him, It appertaineth not unto thee, Uzziah, to burn incense unto the LORD Y@hovah#, but to the priests the sons of Aaron, that are consecrated to burn incense: go out of the sanctuary; for thou hast trespassed; neither shall it be for thine honour from the LORD Y@hovah# God.
strkjv@2Chronicles:26:19 @ Then Uzziah was wroth, and had a censer in his hand to burn incense: and while he was wroth with the priests, the leprosy even rose up in his forehead before the priests in the house of the LORD Y@hovah#, from beside the incense altar.
strkjv@2Chronicles:26:20 @ And Azariah the chief priest, and all the priests, looked upon him, and, behold, he was leprous in his forehead, and they thrust him out from thence; yea, himself hasted also to go out, because the LORD Y@hovah# had smitten him.
strkjv@2Chronicles:26:21 @ And Uzziah the king was a leper unto the day of his death, and dwelt in a several house, being a leper; for he was cut off from the house of the LORD Y@hovah#: and Jotham his son was over the kings house, judging the people of the land.
strkjv@2Chronicles:26:22 @ Now the rest of the acts of Uzziah, first and last, did Isaiah Y@sha'yah# the prophet, the son of Amoz, write.
strkjv@2Chronicles:26:23 @ So Uzziah slept with s fathers, and they buried him with his fathers in the field of the burial which belonged to the kings; for they said, He is a leper: and Jotham his son reigned in his stead.
