CAB(i) 1 Jotham was twenty-five years old when he began to reign, and he reigned sixteen years in Jerusalem; and his mother's name was Jerushah, daughter of Zadok. 2 And he did that which was right in the sight of the Lord, according to all that his father Uzziah had done; but he went not into the temple of the Lord. And still the people corrupted themselves. 3 He built the high gate of the house of the Lord, and he built extensively on the wall of Ophel. 4 In the mountain of Judah, and in the woods, he built both dwelling places and towers. 5 He fought against the king of the children of Ammon, and prevailed against him. And the children of Ammon gave him a hundred talents of silver each year, and ten thousand measures of wheat, and ten thousand measures of barley. These the king of the children of Ammon brought to him annually. 6 So Jotham grew strong, because he prepared his ways before the Lord his God. 7 And the rest of the acts of Jotham, and his war, and his deeds, behold, they are written in the book of the kings of Judah and Israel. 8 (TEXT OMITTED) 9 And Jotham slept with his fathers, and was buried in the City of David; and Ahaz his son reigned in his place.
