1 H3147 Jotham H6242 was twenty H2568 and five H8141 years H1121 old H4427 when he began to reign [H8800] H4427 , and he reigned [H8804] H8337 sixteen H6240 H8141 years H3389 in Jerusalem H517 . His mother's H8034 name H3388 also was Jerushah H1323 , the daughter H6659 of Zadok.
2 H6213 And he did [H8799] H3477 that which was right H5869 in the sight H3068 of the LORD H1 , according to all that his father H5818 Uzziah H6213 did [H8804] H935 : howbeit he entered [H8804] H1964 not into the temple H3068 of the LORD H5971 . And the people H7843 did yet corruptly [H8688] .
3 H1129 He built [H8804] H5945 the high H8179 gate H1004 of the house H3068 of the LORD H2346 , and on the wall H6077 of Ophel H1129 he built [H8804] H7230 much.
4 H1129 Moreover he built [H8804] H5892 cities H2022 in the mountains H3063 of Judah H2793 , and in the forests H1129 he built [H8804] H1003 castles H4026 and towers.
5 H3898 He fought [H8738] H4428 also with the king H5984 of the Ammonites H2388 , and prevailed [H8799] H1121 against them. And the children H5983 of Ammon H5414 gave [H8799] H8141 him the same year H3967 an hundred H3603 talents H3701 of silver H6235 , and ten H505 thousand H3734 measures H2406 of wheat H6235 , and ten H505 thousand H8184 of barley H1121 . So much did the children H5983 of Ammon H7725 pay [H8689] H2063 unto H8145 him, both the second H8141 year H7992 , and the third.
6 H3147 So Jotham H2388 became mighty [H8691] H3559 , because he prepared [H8689] H1870 his ways H6440 before H3068 the LORD H430 his God.
7 H3499 Now the rest H1697 of the acts H3147 of Jotham H4421 , and all his wars H1870 , and his ways H3789 , lo, they are written [H8803] H5612 in the book H4428 of the kings H3478 of Israel H3063 and Judah.
8 H2568 He was five H6242 and twenty H8141 years H1121 old H4427 when he began to reign [H8800] H4427 , and reigned [H8804] H8337 sixteen H6240 H8141 years H3389 in Jerusalem.
