Azariah (Uzziah) Reigns in Judah

1In the twenty-seventh year of Jeroboam king of Israel, Azariah son of Amaziah king of Judah began to reign.
  2He was 16 years old when he began to reign, and he reigned 52 years in Jerusalem, and his mother’s name was Jecoliah of Jerusalem.
  3He did what was right in the eyes of Yahweh according to all that his father Amaziah had done,
  4only the local shrines were not taken away; the people were still sacrificing and burning incense at the shrines.
 

5Yahweh struck the king so that he was a leper to the day of his death, and he lived in a separate house. Jotham, the king’s son, was Over the House, judging the people of the land.
 

6Now the rest of the acts of Azariah and all that he did, are they not written in the Book of the Chronicles of the kings of Judah?
  7Azariah slept with his fathers, and they buried him with his fathers in the city of David; and Jotham his son reigned in his place.
 

Zechariah Reigns in Israel

8In the thirty-eighth year of Azariah king of Judah, Zechariah the son of Jeroboam reigned over Israel in Samaria six months.
  9He did what was evil in the eyes of Yahweh as his fathers had done; he did not depart from the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat who made Israel sin.
 

10Shallum the son of Jabesh conspired against him and struck him down in the presence of the people, and killed him and reigned in his place.
  11Now the rest of the acts of Zechariah, behold, they are written in the Book of the Chronicles of the kings of Israel.
  12This was the word of Yahweh that he spoke to Jehu, saying, “Your sons will sit on the throne of Israel to the fourth generation.” And so it came to be.
 

Shallum Reigns in Israel

13Shallum the son of Jabesh began to reign in the thirty-ninth year of Uzziah king of Judah, and he reigned in Samaria for one month of days.
  14Menahem the son of Gadi went up from Tirzah and came to Samaria and struck down Shallum the son of Jabesh in Samaria and killed him and reigned in his place.
  15Now the rest of the acts of Shallum and his conspiracy that he made, behold, they are written in the Book of the Chronicles of the kings of Israel.
 

16Then Menahem struck Tiphsah and all who were in it and its territory from Tirzah, because they would not open their gates to him. So he struck it, and he split open all the women in it who were pregnant.
 

Menahem Reigns in Israel

17In the thirty-ninth year of Azariah king of Judah, Menahem the son of Gadi began to reign over Israel, and he reigned for ten years in Samaria.
  18He did what was evil in the eyes of Yahweh; he did not depart from the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat who made Israel sin all his days.
 

19Then Pul the king of Assyria came against the land, and Menahem gave Pul 1,000 talents of silvera so that his hand might be with him to hold the kingdom in his own hand.
  20Menahem took the silver payment from Israel, from all the mighty men of wealth, from each man fifty shekels of silver to give to the king of Assyria. So the king of Assyria turned back and did not stay there in the land.
 

21Now the rest of the acts of Menahem and all that he did, are they not written in the Book of the Chronicles of the kings of Israel?
  22And Menahem slept with his fathers, and Pekahiah his son reigned in his place.
 

Pekahiah Reigns in Israel

23In the fiftieth year of Azariah king of Judah, Pekahiah the son of Menahem began to reign over Israel in Samaria, and he reigned for two years.
  24He did what was evil in the eyes of Yahweh; he did not depart from the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat who made Israel sin.
 

25Pekah the son of Remaliah, his officer, conspired against him and struck him down in Samaria in the stronghold of the king’s house, with Argob and Arieh; and with him were fifty men of the Gileadites, and he killed him and reigned in his place.
 

26Now the rest of the acts of Pekahiah and all that he did, behold, they are written in the Book of the Chronicles of the kings of Israel.
 

Pekah Reigns in Israel

27In the fifty-second year of Azariah king of Judah, Pekah the son of Remaliah began to reign over Israel in Samaria, and he reigned for 20 years.
  28He did what was evil in the eyes of Yahweh; he did not depart from the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat who made Israel sin.
 

29In the days of Pekah king of Israel, Tiglath-Pileser, king of Assyria, came and captured Ijon and Abel Beth-maacah and Janoah and Kedesh and Hazor and Gilead and Galilee, all the land of Naphtali; and he carried them captive to Assyria.
 

30Then Hoshea the son of Elah made a conspiracy against Pekah the son of Remaliah and struck him down and killed him and reigned in his place in the twentieth year of Jotham the son of Uzziah.
 

31Now the rest of the acts of Pekah and all that he did, behold, they are written in the Book of the Chronicles of the kings of Israel.
 

Jotham Reigns in Judah

32In the second year of Pekah the son of Remaliah king of Israel, Jotham the son of Uzziah king of Judah began to reign.
  33He was 25 years old when he began to reign, and he reigned 16 years in Jerusalem; and his mother’s name was Jerusha the daughter of Zadok.
  34He did what was right in the eyes of Yahweh; he did according to all that his father Uzziah had done,
  35only the local shrines were not taken away, the people were still sacrificing and burning incense at the shrines. He built the Upper Gate of the house of Yahweh.
  36Now the rest of the acts of Jotham and all that he did, are they not written in the Book of the Chronicles of the kings of Judah?
  37In those days Yahweh began to send Rezin the king of Syria and Pekah the son of Remaliah against Judah.
  38And Jotham slept with his fathers and was buried with his fathers in the city of David his father, and Ahaz his son reigned in his place.
