1 Iotham was fiue and twentie yere olde when he began to reigne, and reigned sixteene yeere in Ierusalem, and his mothers name was Ierushah the daughter of Zadok.
2 And he did [that which was] right in the sight of the LORD, according to all that his father Uzziah did: howbeit he entered not into the temple of the LORD. And the people did yet corruptly.
3 He built the high gate of the house of the LORD, and on the wall of Ophel he built much.
4 Moreouer hee buylt cities in the mountaines of Iudah, and in the forests he buylt palaces and towres.
5 And he fought with the King of the children of Ammon, & preuailed against them; the children of Ammon gaue him the same yere an hundreth talents of siluer, and ten thousande measures of wheate, & ten thousand of barley: this did the children of Ammon giue him both in the second yeere and the third.
6 So Jotham became mighty, because he prepared his ways before the LORD his God.
7 Concerning the rest of the acts of Iotham, & all his warres & his wayes, loe, they are written in the booke of the Kings of Israel, and Iudah.
8 He was fiue and twentie yeere olde when he began to reigne, and reigned sixteene yeere in Ierusalem.
9 And Iotham slept with his fathers, & they buryed him in the citie of Dauid: and Ahaz his sonne reigned in his stead.
