Chapter 26

This chapter gives us an account of the reign of Uzziah (Azariah he was called in the Kings) more fully than we had it before, though it was long, and in some respects illustrious, yet it was very briefly related, 2 Kgs. 14:21; 15:1-7 Here is, I. His good character in general, 2 Chron. 26:1-5. II. His great prosperity in his wars, his buildings, and all the affairs of his kingdom, 2 Chron. 26:6-15. III. His presumption in invading the priests’ office, for which he was struck with a leprosy, and confined by it (2 Chron. 26:16-21) even to his death, 2 Chron. 26:22, 23.
