26:1 Then all the people [H5971] of Judah [H3063] took [H3947] Uzziah [H5818] , who [was] sixteen [H8337] [H6240] years [H8141] old [H1121] , and made him king [H4427] in the room of his father [H1] Amaziah [H558] .(Uzziah: or, Azariah)
26:2 He built [H1129] Eloth [H359] , and restored [H7725] it to Judah [H3063] , after [H310] that the king [H4428] slept [H7901] with his fathers [H1] .
26:3 Sixteen [H8337] [H6240] years [H8141] old [H1121] [was] Uzziah [H5818] when he began to reign [H4427] , and he reigned [H4427] fifty [H2572] and two [H8147] years [H8141] in Jerusalem [H3389] . His mother's [H517] name [H8034] also [was] Jecoliah [H3203] of Jerusalem [H3389] .
26:4 And he did [H6213] [that which was] right [H3477] in the sight [H5869] of the LORD [H3068] , according to all that his father [H1] Amaziah [H558] did [H6213] .
26:5 And he sought [H1875] God [H430] in the days [H3117] of Zechariah [H2148] , who had understanding [H995] in the visions [H7200] of God [H430] : and as long as [H3117] he sought [H1875] the LORD [H3068] , God [H430] made him to prosper [H6743] .(in the visions: Heb. in the seeing of God)
26:6 And he went forth [H3318] and warred [H3898] against the Philistines [H6430] , and brake down [H6555] the wall [H2346] of Gath [H1661] , and the wall [H2346] of Jabneh [H2996] , and the wall [H2346] of Ashdod [H795] , and built [H1129] cities [H5892] about Ashdod [H795] , and among the Philistines [H6430] .(about: or, in the country of Ashdod)
26:7 And God [H430] helped [H5826] him against the Philistines [H6430] , and against the Arabians [H6163] that dwelt [H3427] in Gurbaal [H1485] , and the Mehunims [H4586] .
26:8 And the Ammonites [H5984] gave [H5414] gifts [H4503] to Uzziah [H5818] : and his name [H8034] spread abroad [H3212] [even] to the entering [H935] in of Egypt [H4714] ; for he strengthened [H2388] [himself] exceedingly [H4605] .(spread: Heb. went)
26:9 Moreover Uzziah [H5818] built [H1129] towers [H4026] in Jerusalem [H3389] at the corner [H6438] gate [H8179] , and at the valley [H1516] gate [H8179] , and at the turning [H4740] [of the wall], and fortified [H2388] them.(fortified: or, repaired)
26:10 Also he built [H1129] towers [H4026] in the desert [H4057] , and digged [H2672] many [H7227] wells [H953] : for he had much [H7227] cattle [H4735] , both in the low country [H8219] , and in the plains [H4334] : husbandmen [H406] [also], and vine dressers [H3755] in the mountains [H2022] , and in Carmel [H3760] : for he loved [H157] husbandry [H127] .(digged: or, cut out many cisterns)(Carmel: or, fruitful fields)(husbandry: Heb. ground)
26:11 Moreover Uzziah [H5818] had an host [H2428] of fighting [H4421] men [H6213] , that went out [H3318] to war [H6635] by bands [H1416] , according to the number [H4557] of their account [H6486] by the hand [H3027] of Jeiel [H3273] the scribe [H5608] and Maaseiah [H4641] the ruler [H7860] , under the hand [H3027] of Hananiah [H2608] , [one] of the king's [H4428] captains [H8269] .
26:12 The whole number [H4557] of the chief [H7218] of the fathers [H1] of the mighty men [H1368] of valour [H2428] [were] two thousand [H505] and six [H8337] hundred [H3967] .
26:13 And under their hand [H3027] [was] an army [H2428] [H6635] , three [H7969] hundred [H3967] thousand [H505] and seven [H7651] thousand [H505] and five [H2568] hundred [H3967] , that made [H6213] war [H4421] with mighty [H2428] power [H3581] , to help [H5826] the king [H4428] against the enemy [H341] .(an army: Heb. the power of an army)
26:14 And Uzziah [H5818] prepared [H3559] for them throughout all the host [H6635] shields [H4043] , and spears [H7420] , and helmets [H3553] , and habergeons [H8302] , and bows [H7198] , and slings [H7050] [to cast] stones [H68] .(slings: Heb. stones of slings)
26:15 And he made [H6213] in Jerusalem [H3389] engines [H2810] , invented [H4284] by cunning men [H2803] , to be on the towers [H4026] and upon the bulwarks [H6438] , to shoot [H3384] arrows [H2671] and great [H1419] stones [H68] withal. And his name [H8034] spread [H3318] far abroad [H7350] ; for he was marvellously [H6381] helped [H5826] , till [H3588] he was strong [H2388] .(spread: Heb. went forth)
26:16 But when he was strong [H2393] , his heart [H3820] was lifted up [H1361] to [his] destruction [H7843] : for he transgressed [H4603] against the LORD [H3068] his God [H430] , and went [H935] into the temple [H1964] of the LORD [H3068] to burn incense [H6999] upon the altar [H4196] of incense [H7004] .
26:17 And Azariah [H5838] the priest [H3548] went in [H935] after [H310] him, and with him fourscore [H8084] priests [H3548] of the LORD [H3068] , [that were] valiant [H2428] men [H1121] :
26:18 And they withstood [H5975] Uzziah [H5818] the king [H4428] , and said [H559] unto him, [It appertaineth] not unto thee, Uzziah [H5818] , to burn incense [H6999] unto the LORD [H3068] , but to the priests [H3548] the sons [H1121] of Aaron [H175] , that are consecrated [H6942] to burn incense [H6999] : go out [H3318] of the sanctuary [H4720] ; for thou hast trespassed [H4603] ; neither [shall it be] for thine honour [H3519] from the LORD [H3068] God [H430] .
26:19 Then Uzziah [H5818] was wroth [H2196] , and [had] a censer [H4730] in his hand [H3027] to burn incense [H6999] : and while he was wroth [H2196] with the priests [H3548] , the leprosy [H6883] even rose up [H2224] in his forehead [H4696] before [H6440] the priests [H3548] in the house [H1004] of the LORD [H3068] , from beside the incense [H7004] altar [H4196] .
26:20 And Azariah [H5838] the chief [H7218] priest [H3548] , and all the priests [H3548] , looked [H6437] upon him, and, behold, he [was] leprous [H6879] in his forehead [H4696] , and they thrust him out [H926] from thence; yea, himself hasted [H1765] also to go out [H3318] , because the LORD [H3068] had smitten [H5060] him.
26:21 And Uzziah [H5818] the king [H4428] was a leper [H6879] unto the day [H3117] of his death [H4194] , and dwelt in [H3427] a several [H2669] [H2669] house [H1004] , [being] a leper [H6879] ; for he was cut off [H1504] from the house [H1004] of the LORD [H3068] : and Jotham [H3147] his son [H1121] [was] over the king's [H4428] house [H1004] , judging [H8199] the people [H5971] of the land [H776] .(several: Heb. free)
26:22 Now the rest [H3499] of the acts [H1697] of Uzziah [H5818] , first [H7223] and last [H314] , did Isaiah [H3470] the prophet [H5030] , the son [H1121] of Amoz [H531] , write [H3789] .
26:23 So Uzziah [H5818] slept [H7901] with his fathers [H1] , and they buried [H6912] him with his fathers [H1] in the field [H7704] of the burial [H6900] which [belonged] to the kings [H4428] ; for they said [H559] , He [is] a leper [H6879] : and Jotham [H3147] his son [H1121] reigned [H4427] in his stead.
