2 Chronicles 26
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1And all the people of Yehuda took Uzziah his son (he was a son of sixteen years), and they exalted him in the kingdom after his father Amutsia. 2He built Elath and he returned it to those of the house of Yehuda after the King fell asleep with his fathers. 3Uzziah was a son of sixteen years when he arose in the kingdom, and he reigned fifty and two years in Jerusalem, and the name of his mother was Yekinya from Jerusalem. 4And he did what is beautiful before LORD JEHOVAH, just as what David his father did. 5And he was praying before him in the days of Zechariah, who was instructing him in the awe of LORD JEHOVAH, and LORD JEHOVAH was organizing all his ways.

6And he went out and fought with the Philistines, and he broke through the wall of Gath and of Aza and of Ashdod. 8And his name was traveling unto the land of Egypt, because he was increasingly making war. 9And Uzziah built towers for himself in Jerusalem at the gate of the corner and at the west gate, and he buttressed them on their corners with collars of iron. 10And he built many towers in the cities that he had and he made many castles for himself because he had many riches, and in the valleys and in the mountains he had many Farmers and Laborers, because he had much property. 11And Uzziah had mighty men of power, wagers of war 12In number thirty two thousand and six hundred. 13And he had other dwellers of the field, three hundred thousand, and he had seven thousand and five hundred men bound with a sword 14Who were standing every day and guarding the King. 15And his name went out in all the cities until he was becoming very rich.

16And when he was greatly enriched with riches, his spirit was very exalted in him, and he denied LORD JEHOVAH his God and was entering the temple of LORD JEHOVAH to offer censers of sweet spices. 17And the Priest went in after Uzziah 18And said to him: “It is not your place, oh King, neither is it right for you that you offer up incense on the altar!” 19And at that moment King Uzziah was indignant against the Priests, and he commanded that they send them out from the Holy House, and in that moment leprosy went out from the Holy House and it fell on the forehead of King Uzziah when he entered to bring incense into the house of LORD JEHOVAH. 20And Uzziah the Priest and all the Priests turned to him, and they saw that he was hurrying to go out because he knew that LORD JEHOVAH had stricken him. 21And Uzziah the King was dwelling with his leprosy until his death, and was dwelling in a house of festivity as a leper, because he had blasphemed against the house of LORD JEHOVAH, and Yutham his son was authorized over the house of the King, and he was judging the people of the land.

22And the rest of the words of Uzziah, first and last, behold, those are written in Isaiah the son of Amuts the Prophet. 23And Uzziah fell asleep with his fathers, and they buried him in a house of burial, not in the mausoleum of the Kings, because they said: “He is a leper.” And Yutham his son became king after him.
