The vision of Isaiah the son of Amoz that he saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem in the days of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz and Hezekiah, kings of Judah. Bible other translations

“in the days of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz and Hezekiah.” God raised up a number of prophets during Isaiah’s time, which was a tumultuous time for Israel and Judah, including when the northern kingdom of Israel was carried away by Assyria and its citizens replaced by foreigners, who became the hated Samaritans of the New Testament. Prophets who were contemporaries of Isaiah include Hosea (Hos. 1:1), Micah (cp. Micah 1:1). Amos likely was (Amos 1:1), as were Jonah and Nahum.

The Book of Isaiah contains information about Uzziah (cp. 2 Chron. 26:22), Ahaz (2 Kings 16:1-20; 2 Chron. 28:1-27), and Hezekiah (2 Kings 18-20; 2 Chron. 29-32), but only mentions Jotham (2 Kings 15:32-38; 2 Chron. 27:1-9).
