Jotham Reigns in Judah
(2 Kings 15:32–38)

1Iotham was fiue and twentie yeres olde when he began to raigne, and he raigned sixteene yeres in Hierusalem: His mothers name also was Ierusa, the daughter of Zadoc. 2And he did that which was right in the sight of the Lorde, in all poyntes as did his father Uzzia, saue that he came not into the temple of the Lorde: and the people did yet wickedly. 3He built the hie gate of the temple of the Lorde, and on the wall (where the house of ordinauce was) he built much. 4Moreouer, he built cities in the mountaines of Iuda, and in the wood countrey he built castels and towres. 5He fought with the king of the children of Ammon, and preuailed against them: And the children of Ammon gaue him the same yere an hundred talentes of siluer, & ten thousand quarters of wheate, and ten thousand of barlye: So much did the children of Ammon geue him the second yere, and the third also. 6So Iotham became mightie, because he directed his way before the Lorde his God. 7The rest of the actes of Iotham, and all his warres, & his conuersation, loe they are written in the booke of the kinges of Israel and Iuda. 8He was twentie and fiue yeres olde when he began to raigne, and raigned sixteene yeres in Hierusalem. 9And Iotham slept with his fathers, and they buryed him in the citie of Dauid: and Ahaz his sonne raigned in his steade.
