2 Chronicles 27

CHAPTER 27

Jotham Reigns in Judah

[2was a son 3twenty 4and 5five 6years old 1Jotham] in his taking reign, and sixteen years he reigned in Jerusalem. And the name to his mother was Jerousha, daughter of Zadok. And he did the upright thing before the  lord, according to all which [3did 1Uzziah 2his father]. Only into the temple of the  lord he did not enter, and yet the people corrupted themselves. He built the gate of the house of the  lord, the high one. And in the wall of Ophel he built much. And [2cities 1he built] in the mountains of Judah; and in the forests he built palaces and towers. And he did combat against the king of the sons of Ammon, and he prevailed against him. And [4gave 5to him 1the 2sons 3of Ammon] each year a hundred talents of silver, and ten thousand cors of wheat, and [3of barley 1ten 2thousand]. These [5brought 6to him 1the 2king 3of the sons 4of Ammon] each year, and in the [2year 1second], and the third. And Jotham grew strong, for he prepared his ways before the  lord his God. And the rest of the words of Jotham, and the war, and his actions, behold they are written upon the scroll of the kings of Judah and Israel. [3a son 4twenty 5and 6five 7years old 2was 1Jotham] in his taking reign, and sixteen years he reigned in Jerusalem. And Jotham slept with his fathers, and they entombed him in the city of David. And [3reigned 1Ahaz 2his son] instead of him.
