27:1 Jotham [H3147] [was] twenty [H6242] and five [H2568] years [H8141] old [H1121] when he began to reign [H4427] , and he reigned [H4427] sixteen [H8337] [H6240] years [H8141] in Jerusalem [H3389] . His mother's [H517] name [H8034] also [was] Jerushah [H3388] , the daughter [H1323] of Zadok [H6659] .
27:2 And he did [H6213] [that which was] right [H3477] in the sight [H5869] of the LORD [H3068] , according to all that his father [H1] Uzziah [H5818] did [H6213] : howbeit he entered [H935] not into the temple [H1964] of the LORD [H3068] . And the people [H5971] did yet corruptly [H7843] .
27:3 He built [H1129] the high [H5945] gate [H8179] of the house [H1004] of the LORD [H3068] , and on the wall [H2346] of Ophel [H6077] he built [H1129] much [H7230] .(Ophel: or, the tower)
27:4 Moreover he built [H1129] cities [H5892] in the mountains [H2022] of Judah [H3063] , and in the forests [H2793] he built [H1129] castles [H1003] and towers [H4026] .
27:5 He fought [H3898] also with the king [H4428] of the Ammonites [H5984] , and prevailed [H2388] against them. And the children [H1121] of Ammon [H5983] gave [H5414] him the same year [H8141] an hundred [H3967] talents [H3603] of silver [H3701] , and ten [H6235] thousand [H505] measures [H3734] of wheat [H2406] , and ten [H6235] thousand [H505] of barley [H8184] . So much did the children [H1121] of Ammon [H5983] pay [H7725] unto [H2063] him, both the second [H8145] year [H8141] , and the third [H7992] .(So: Heb. This)
27:6 So Jotham [H3147] became mighty [H2388] , because he prepared [H3559] his ways [H1870] before [H6440] the LORD [H3068] his God [H430] .(prepared: or, established)
27:7 Now the rest [H3499] of the acts [H1697] of Jotham [H3147] , and all his wars [H4421] , and his ways [H1870] , lo, they [are] written [H3789] in the book [H5612] of the kings [H4428] of Israel [H3478] and Judah [H3063] .
27:8 He was five [H2568] and twenty [H6242] years [H8141] old [H1121] when he began to reign [H4427] , and reigned [H4427] sixteen [H8337] [H6240] years [H8141] in Jerusalem [H3389] .
27:9 And Jotham [H3147] slept [H7901] with his fathers [H1] , and they buried [H6912] him in the city [H5892] of David [H1732] : and Ahaz [H271] his son [H1121] reigned [H4427] in his stead.
