2 Chronicles 27Tree of Life Version (TLV)
Good King Jotham Prospers
27 Jotham was 25 years old when he became king, and he reigned 16 years in Jerusalem. His mother’s name was Jerushah the daughter of Zadok. 2 He did what was right in the eyes of Adonai, just as his father Uzziah had done. But unlike his father, he did not enter into the Temple of Adonai. The people, however, acted corruptly. 3 He rebuilt the upper gate of the House of Adonai and did extensive building on the wall of Ophel. 4 He also built towns in the Judean hills and forts and towers in the forests.
5 Jotham also fought the king of the Ammonites and prevailed against them. That year the Ammonites paid him 100 talents of silver, 10,000 measures of wheat and 10,000 of barley. The Ammonites brought him the same amount also in the second and third years.
6 Jotham became powerful because he ordered his ways before Adonai his God. 7 Now the rest of the acts of Jotham and all his wars and his ways, behold, they are written in the book of the kings of Israel and Judah. 8 He was 25 years old when he became king and reigned 16 years in Jerusalem. 9 Jotham slept with his fathers and they buried him in the city of David. Ahaz his son became king in his place.
