2 Kings 15:32-38New American Standard Bible (NASB)
Jotham over Judah
32 In the second year of Pekah the son of Remaliah king of Israel, Jotham the son of [a]Uzziah king of Judah became king.33 He was twenty-five years old when he became king, and he reigned sixteen years in Jerusalem; and his mother’s name was Jerusha the daughter of Zadok.34 He did what was right in the sight of the Lord; he did according to all that his father Uzziah had done.35 Only the high places were not taken away; the people still sacrificed and burned incense on the high places. 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 Rezin king of Aram and Pekah the son of Remaliah against Judah.38 And Jotham slept with his fathers, and he was buried with his fathers in the city of David his father; and Ahaz his son became king in his place.
27 Jotham was twenty-five years old when he became king, and he reigned sixteen years in Jerusalem. And his mother’s name was Jerushah the daughter of Zadok.2 He did right in the sight of the Lord, according to all that his father Uzziah had done; however he did not enter the temple of the Lord. But the people continued acting corruptly.3 He built the upper gate of the house of the Lord, and he built extensively the wall of Ophel.4 Moreover, he built cities in the hill country of Judah, and he built fortresses and towers on the wooded hills.5 He fought also with the king of the Ammonites and prevailed over them so that the Ammonites gave him during that year one hundred talents of silver, ten thousand [a]kors of wheat and ten thousand of barley. The Ammonites also paid him this amount in the second and in the third year.6 So Jotham became mighty because he ordered his ways before the Lord his God.7 Now the rest of the acts of Jotham, even all his wars and his acts, behold, they are written in the Book of the Kings of Israel and Judah.8 He was twenty-five years old when he became king, and he reigned sixteen years in Jerusalem.9 And Jotham slept with his fathers, and they buried him in the city of David; and Ahaz his son became king in his place.
