Jotham Reigns in Judah(A)

32 In the second year of Pekah the son of Remaliah, king of Israel, (B)Jotham the son of Uzziah, king of Judah, began to reign. 33 He was twenty-five years old when he became king, and he reigned sixteen years in Jerusalem. His mother’s name was [a]Jerusha the daughter of Zadok. 34 And he did what was right in the sight of the Lord; he did (C)according to all that his father Uzziah had done. 35 (D)However the [b]high places were not removed; the people still sacrificed and burned incense on the high places. (E)He built the Upper Gate of the house of the Lord.

36 Now the rest of the acts of Jotham, and all that he did, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Judah? 37 In those days the Lord began to send (F)Rezin king of Syria and (G)Pekah the son of Remaliah against Judah. 38 So Jotham [c]rested with his fathers, and was buried with his fathers in the City of David his father. Then Ahaz his son reigned in his place.
