Judah’s King Azariah

15 In the twenty-seventh year of Israel’s King Jeroboam, Azariah[a](A) son of Amaziah became king of Judah.(B) He was sixteen years old when he became king, and he reigned fifty-two years in Jerusalem. His mother’s name was Jecoliah; she was from Jerusalem. Azariah did what was right in the Lord’s sight(C) just as his father Amaziah had done. Yet the high places were not taken away; the people continued sacrificing and burning incense on the high places.(D)

The Lord afflicted the king, and he had a serious skin disease until the day of his death.(E) He lived in quarantine,[b](F) while Jotham,(G) the king’s son, was over the household governing the people of the land.(H)

The rest of the events of Azariah’s reign, along with all his accomplishments, are written in the Historical Record of Judah’s Kings.(I) Azariah rested with his ancestors and was buried with his ancestors in the city of David. His son Jotham became king in his place.(J)
