▼ Many mss read in the fear of Godthrough the vision of God; and ▼
▼ Lit in the days of his seeking, h as long as he sought the Lord, God prospered him.
Uzziah Succeeds in War6 Now he went out and i warred against the Philistines, and broke down the wall of Gath and the wall of Jabneh and the wall of Ashdod; and he built cities in the area of Ashdod and among the Philistines. 7 j God helped him against the Philistines, and against the Arabians who lived in Gur-baal, and the Meunites. 8 The Ammonites also gave k tribute to Uzziah, and his ▼
▼ Lit name went to the entering of Egyptfame extended to the border of Egypt, for he became very strong. 9 Moreover, Uzziah built towers in Jerusalem at m the Corner Gate and at the n Valley Gate and at the corner buttress and fortified them. 10 He built towers in the wilderness and o hewed many cisterns, for he had much livestock, both in the ▼
▼ Heb shephelahlowland and in the plain. He also had plowmen and vinedressers in the hill country and the fertile fields, for he loved the soil. 11 Moreover, Uzziah had an army ready for battle, which ▼

▼ Lit by the hand ofprepared by Jeiel the scribe and Maaseiah the official, under the direction of Hananiah, one of the king’s officers. 12 The total number of the heads of the ▼

Pride Is Uzziah’s Undoing16 But x when he became strong, his heart was so ▼
▼ Lit lifted upproud that he acted corruptly, and he was unfaithful to the Lord his God, for z he entered the temple of the Lord to burn incense on the altar of incense. 17 Then aa Azariah the priest entered after him and with him eighty priests of the Lord, valiant men. 18 ab They opposed Uzziah the king and said to him, ac “It is not for you, Uzziah, to burn incense to the Lord ad but for the priests, the sons of Aaron who are consecrated to burn incense. Get out of the sanctuary, for you have been unfaithful and will have no honor from the Lord God.” 19 But Uzziah, with a censer in his hand for burning incense, was enraged; and while he was enraged with the priests ae the leprosy broke out on his forehead before the priests in the house of the Lord, beside the altar of incense. 20 Azariah the chief priest and all the priests looked at him, and behold, he was leprous on his forehead; and they hurried him out of there, and he himself also hastened to get out because the Lord had smitten him. 21 af King Uzziah was a leper to the day of his death; and he lived in ag a separate house, being a leper, for he was cut off from the house of the Lord. And Jotham his son was over the king’s house judging the people of the land. 22 Now the rest of the acts of Uzziah, first to last, the prophet ah Isaiah, the son of Amoz, has written. 23 So Uzziah slept with his fathers, and they buried him with his fathers ai in the field of the grave which belonged to the kings, for they said, “He is a leper.” And Jotham his son became king in his place.
