Sixteen years old was he when he began to reign, and he reigned two and fifty years in Jerusalem. And his mother's name was
Jecholiah of Jerusalem.
And he did that which was
right in the sight of the LORD, according to all that his father Amaziah had done;
Save that the high places were not removed: the people sacrificed and burnt incense still on the high places.
And the LORD smote the king, so that he was a leper unto the day of his death, and dwelt in a several house. And Jotham the king's son was
over the house, judging the people of the land.
And 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?
So Azariah slept with his fathers; and they buried him with his fathers in the city of David: and Jotham his son reigned in his stead.
