Uzziah King of Judah 15 1Uzziah[H] son of Amaziah became king of Judah during Jeroboam’s twenty-seventh year as king of Israel. 2Uzziah was sixteen years old when he became king, and he ruled fifty-two years in Jerusalem. His mother was named Jecoliah, and she was from Jerusalem. 3He did what the Lord said was right, just as his father Amaziah had done. 4But the places where gods were worshiped were not removed, so the people still made sacrifices and burned incense there. 5The Lord struck Uzziah with a skin disease, which he had until the day he died. So he had to live in a separate house. Jotham, the king’s son, was in charge of the palace, and he governed the people of the land. 6All the other things Uzziah did are written in the book of the history of the kings of Judah. 7Uzziah died and was buried near his ancestors in Jerusalem, and his son Jotham became king in his place.   Zechariah King of Israel   8Zechariah son of Jeroboam was king over Israel in Samaria. He ruled for six months during Uzziah’s[I] thirty-eighth year as king of Judah. 9Zechariah did what the Lord said was wrong, just as his ancestors had done. Jeroboam son of Nebat had led the people of Israel to sin, and Zechariah did not stop doing the same sins. 10Shallum son of Jabesh made plans against Zechariah and killed him in front of the people. Then Shallum became king in his place. 11The other acts of Zechariah are written in the book of the history of the kings of Israel. 12The Lord had told Jehu: “Your sons down to your great-great-grandchildren will be kings of Israel,” and the Lord’s word came true.   Shallum King of Israel   13Shallum son of Jabesh became king during Uzziah’s thirty-ninth year as king of Judah. Shallum ruled for a month in Samaria. 14Then Menahem son of Gadi came up from Tirzah to Samaria and attacked Shallum son of Jabesh in Samaria. He killed him and became king in Shallum’s place. 15The other acts of Shallum and his secret plans are written in the book of the history of the kings of Israel.   Menahem King of Israel   16Menahem started out from Tirzah and attacked Tiphsah, destroying the city and the area nearby. This was because the people had refused to open the city gate for him. He defeated them and ripped open all their pregnant women. 17Menahem son of Gadi became king over Israel during Uzziah’s thirty-ninth year as king of Judah. Menahem ruled ten years in Samaria, 18and he did what the Lord said was wrong. Jeroboam son of Nebat had led Israel to sin, and all the time Menahem was king, he did not stop doing the same sins. 19Pul king of Assyria came to attack the land. Menahem gave him about seventy-four thousand pounds of silver so Pul would support him and make his hold on the kingdom stronger. 20Menahem taxed Israel to pay about one and one-fourth pounds of silver to each soldier of the king of Assyria. So the king left and did not stay in the land. 21Everything else Menahem did is written in the book of the history of the kings of Israel. 22Then Menahem died, and his son Pekahiah became king in his place.   Pekahiah King of Israel   23Pekahiah son of Menahem became king over Israel in Samaria during Uzziah’s[J] fiftieth year as king of Judah. Pekahiah ruled two years, 24and he did what the Lord said was wrong. Jeroboam son of Nebat had led Israel to sin, and Pekahiah did not stop doing the same sins. 25Pekah son of Remaliah was one of Pekahiah’s captains, and he made plans against Pekahiah. He took fifty men of Gilead with him and killed Pekahiah, as well as Argob and Arieh, in the palace at Samaria. Then Pekah became king in Pekahiah’s place. 26Everything else Pekahiah did is written in the book of the history of the kings of Israel.   Pekah King of Israel   27Pekah son of Remaliah became king over Israel in Samaria during Uzziah’s[K] fifty-second year as king of Judah. Pekah ruled twenty years, 28and he did what the Lord said was wrong. Jeroboam son of Nebat had led Israel to sin, and Pekah did not stop doing the same sins. 29Tiglath-Pileser[L] was king of Assyria. He attacked while Pekah was king of Israel, capturing the cities of Ijon, Abel Beth Maacah, Janoah, Kedesh, and Hazor. He also captured Gilead and Galilee and all the land of Naphtali and carried the people away to Assyria. 30Then Hoshea son of Elah made plans against Pekah son of Remaliah and attacked and killed him. Then Hoseah became king in Pekah’s place during the twentieth year Jotham son of Uzziah was king. 31Everything else Pekah did is written in the book of the history of the kings of Israel.   Jotham King of Judah   32Jotham son of Uzziah became king of Judah during the second year Pekah son of Remaliah was king of Israel. 33Jotham was twenty-five years old when he became king, and he ruled sixteen years in Jerusalem. His mother’s name was Jerusha daughter of Zadok. 34Jotham did what the Lord said was right, just as his father Uzziah had done. 35But the places where gods were worshiped were not removed, and the people still made sacrifices and burned incense there. Jotham rebuilt the Upper Gate of the Temple of the Lord. 36The other things Jotham did while he was king are written in the book of the history of the kings of Judah. 37At that time the Lord began to send Rezin king of Aram and Pekah son of Remaliah against Judah. 38Jotham died and was buried with his ancestors in Jerusalem, the city of David, his ancestor. Then Jotham’s son Ahaz became king in his place.
