2 Chronicles 26 (WEBP)

[1] All the people of Judah took Uzziah, who was sixteen years old, and made him king in the place of his father Amaziah.
[2] He built Eloth and restored it to Judah. After that the king slept with his fathers.
[3] Uzziah was sixteen years old when he began to reign; and he reigned fifty-two years in Jerusalem. His mother’s name was Jechiliah, of Jerusalem.
[4] He did that which was right in Yahweh’s eyes, according to all that his father Amaziah had done.
[5] He set himself to seek God in the days of Zechariah, who had understanding in the vision of God; and as long as he sought Yahweh, God made him prosper.
[6] He went out and fought against the Philistines, and broke down the wall of Gath, the wall of Jabneh, and the wall of Ashdod; and he built cities in the country of Ashdod, and among the Philistines.
[7] God helped him against the Philistines, and against the Arabians who lived in Gur Baal, and the Meunim.
[8] The Ammonites gave tribute to Uzziah. His name spread abroad even to the entrance of Egypt, for he grew exceedingly strong.
[9] Moreover Uzziah built towers in Jerusalem at the corner gate, at the valley gate, and at the turning of the wall, and fortified them.
[10] He built towers in the wilderness, and dug out many cisterns, for he had much livestock, both in the lowlands and in the plains. He had farmers and vineyard keepers in the mountains and in the fruitful fields, for he loved farming.
[11] Moreover Uzziah had an army of fighting men who went out to war by bands, according to the number of their reckoning made by Jeiel the scribe and Maaseiah the officer, under the hand of Hananiah, one of the king’s captains.
[12] The whole number of the heads of fathers’ households, even the mighty men of valor, was two thousand six hundred.
[13] Under their hand was an army, three hundred seven thousand five hundred, who made war with mighty power, to help the king against the enemy.
[14] Uzziah prepared for them, even for all the army, shields, spears, helmets, coats of mail, bows, and stones for slinging.
[15] In Jerusalem, he made devices, invented by skillful men, to be on the towers and on the battlements, with which to shoot arrows and great stones. His name spread far abroad, because he was marvelously helped until he was strong.
[16] But when he was strong, his heart was lifted up, so that he did corruptly and he trespassed against Yahweh his God, for he went into Yahweh’s temple to burn incense on the altar of incense.
[17] Azariah the priest went in after him, and with him eighty priests of Yahweh, who were valiant men.
[18] They resisted Uzziah the king, and said to him, “It isn’t for you, Uzziah, to burn incense to Yahweh, but for the priests the sons of Aaron, who are consecrated to burn incense. Go out of the sanctuary, for you have trespassed. It will not be for your honor from Yahweh God.”
[19] Then Uzziah was angry. He had a censer in his hand to burn incense, and while he was angry with the priests, the leprosy broke out on his forehead before the priests in Yahweh’s house, beside the altar of incense.
[20] Azariah the chief priest and all the priests looked at him, and behold, he was leprous in his forehead; and they thrust him out quickly from there. Indeed, he himself also hurried to go out, because Yahweh had struck him.
[21] Uzziah the king was a leper to the day of his death, and lived in a separate house, being a leper; for he was cut off from Yahweh’s house. Jotham his son was over the king’s house, judging the people of the land.
[22] Now the rest of the acts of Uzziah, first and last, Isaiah the prophet, the son of Amoz, wrote.
[23] So Uzziah slept with his fathers; and they buried him with his fathers in the field of burial which belonged to the kings, for they said, “He is a leper.” Jotham his son reigned in his place.

2 Chronicles 26 (KJVS)

[1] Then all the people H5971 of Judah H3063 took H3947 (8799) Uzziah H5818, who [was] sixteen H8337 H6240 years H8141 old H1121, and made him king H4427 (8686) in the room of his father H1 Amaziah H558.
[2] He built H1129 (8804) Eloth H359, and restored H7725 (8686) it to Judah H3063, after H310 that the king H4428 slept H7901 (8800) with his fathers H1.
[3] Sixteen H8337 H6240 years H8141 old H1121 [was] Uzziah H5818 when he began to reign H4427 (8800), and he reigned H4427 (8804) fifty H2572 and two H8147 years H8141 in Jerusalem H3389. His mother’s H517 name H8034 also [was] Jecoliah H3203 of Jerusalem H3389.
[4] And he did H6213 (8799) [that which was] right H3477 in the sight H5869 of the LORD H3068, according to all that his father H1 Amaziah H558 did H6213 (8804).
[5] And he sought H1875 (8800) God H430 in the days H3117 of Zechariah H2148, who had understanding H995 (8688) in the visions H7200 (8800) of God H430: and as long as H3117 he sought H1875 (8800) the LORD H3068, God H430 made him to prosper H6743 (8689).
[6] And he went forth H3318 (8799) and warred H3898 (8735) against the Philistines H6430, and brake down H6555 (8799) the wall H2346 of Gath H1661, and the wall H2346 of Jabneh H2996, and the wall H2346 of Ashdod H795, and built H1129 (8799) cities H5892 about Ashdod H795, and among the Philistines H6430.
[7] And God H430 helped H5826 (8799) him against the Philistines H6430, and against the Arabians H6163 that dwelt H3427 (8802) in Gurbaal H1485, and the Mehunims H4586.
[8] And the Ammonites H5984 gave H5414 (8799) gifts H4503 to Uzziah H5818: and his name H8034 spread abroad H3212 (8799) [even] to the entering H935 (8800) in of Egypt H4714; for he strengthened H2388 (8689) [himself] exceedingly H4605.
[9] Moreover Uzziah H5818 built H1129 (8799) 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 (8762) them.
[10] Also he built H1129 (8799) towers H4026 in the desert H4057, and digged H2672 (8799) 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 (8802) husbandry H127.
[11] Moreover Uzziah H5818 had an host H2428 of fighting H4421 men H6213 (8802), that went out H3318 (8802) 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 (8802) and Maaseiah H4641 the ruler H7860 (8802), under the hand H3027 of Hananiah H2608, [one] of the king’s H4428 captains H8269.
[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.
[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 (8802) war H4421 with mighty H2428 power H3581, to help H5826 (8800) the king H4428 against the enemy H341 (8802).
[14] And Uzziah H5818 prepared H3559 (8686) 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.
[15] And he made H6213 (8799) in Jerusalem H3389 engines H2810, invented H4284 by cunning men H2803 (8802), to be on the towers H4026 and upon the bulwarks H6438, to shoot H3384 (8800) arrows H2671 and great H1419 stones H68 withal. And his name H8034 spread H3318 (8799) far abroad H7350; for he was marvellously H6381 (8689) helped H5826 (8736), till H3588 he was strong H2388 (8804).
[16] But when he was strong H2393, his heart H3820 was lifted up H1361 (8804) to [his] destruction H7843 (8687): for he transgressed H4603 (8799) against the LORD H3068 his God H430, and went H935 (8799) into the temple H1964 of the LORD H3068 to burn incense H6999 (8687) upon the altar H4196 of incense H7004.
[17] And Azariah H5838 the priest H3548 went in H935 (8799) after H310 him, and with him fourscore H8084 priests H3548 of the LORD H3068, [that were] valiant H2428 men H1121:
[18] And they withstood H5975 (8799) Uzziah H5818 the king H4428, and said H559 (8799) unto him, [It appertaineth] not unto thee, Uzziah H5818, to burn incense H6999 (8687) unto the LORD H3068, but to the priests H3548 the sons H1121 of Aaron H175, that are consecrated H6942 (8794) to burn incense H6999 (8687): go out H3318 (8798) of the sanctuary H4720; for thou hast trespassed H4603 (8804); neither [shall it be] for thine honour H3519 from the LORD H3068 God H430.
[19] Then Uzziah H5818 was wroth H2196 (8799), and [had] a censer H4730 in his hand H3027 to burn incense H6999 (8687): and while he was wroth H2196 (8800) with the priests H3548, the leprosy H6883 even rose up H2224 (8804) in his forehead H4696 before H6440 the priests H3548 in the house H1004 of the LORD H3068, from beside the incense H7004 altar H4196.
[20] And Azariah H5838 the chief H7218 priest H3548, and all the priests H3548, looked H6437 (8799) upon him, and, behold, he [was] leprous H6879 (8794) in his forehead H4696, and they thrust him out H926 (8686) from thence; yea, himself hasted H1765 (8738) also to go out H3318 (8800), because the LORD H3068 had smitten H5060 (8765) him.
[21] And Uzziah H5818 the king H4428 was a leper H6879 (8794) unto the day H3117 of his death H4194, and dwelt in H3427 (8799) a several H2669 (8675) H2669 house H1004, [being] a leper H6879 (8794); for he was cut off H1504 (8738) from the house H1004 of the LORD H3068: and Jotham H3147 his son H1121 [was] over the king’s H4428 house H1004, judging H8199 (8802) the people H5971 of the land H776.
[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 (8804).
[23] So Uzziah H5818 slept H7901 (8799) with his fathers H1, and they buried H6912 (8799) him with his fathers H1 in the field H7704 of the burial H6900 which [belonged] to the kings H4428; for they said H559 (8804), He [is] a leper H6879 (8794): and Jotham H3147 his son H1121 reigned H4427 (8799) in his stead.

Young’s Literal Translation

2 Chronicles 26 (YLT)

[1] And all the people of Judah take Uzziah (and he is a son of sixteen years), and cause him to reign instead of his father Amaziah.
[2] He hath built Eloth, and restoreth it to Judah after the king’s lying with his fathers.
[3] A son of sixteen years is Uzziah in his reigning, and fifty and two years he hath reigned in Jerusalem, and the name of his mother is Jecholiah of Jerusalem.
[4] And he doth that which is right in the eyes of Jehovah, according to all that Amaziah his father did,
[5] and he is as one seeking God in the days of Zechariah who hath understanding in visions of God: and in the days of his seeking Jehovah, God hath caused him to prosper.
[6] And he goeth forth, and fighteth with the Philistines, and breaketh down the wall of Gath, and the wall of Jabneh, and the wall of Ashdod, and buildeth cities about Ashdod, and among the Philistines.
[7] And God helpeth him against the Philistines, and against the Arabians who are dwelling in Gur-Baal and the Mehunim.
[8] And the Ammonites give a present to Uzziah, and his name goeth unto the entering in of Egypt, for he strengthened himself greatly.
[9] And Uzziah buildeth towers in Jerusalem, by the gate of the corner, and by the gate of the valley, and by the angle, and strengtheneth them;
[10] and he buildeth towers in the wilderness, and diggeth many wells, for he had much cattle, both in the low country and in the plain, husbandmen and vine-dressers in the mountains, and in Carmel; for he was a lover of the ground.
[11] And Uzziah hath a force, making war, going forth to the host, by troops, in the number of their reckoning by the hand of Jeiel the scribe and Masseiah the officer, by the hand of Hananiah one of the heads of the king.
[12] The whole number of heads of the fathers of the mighty ones of valour is two thousand and six hundred;
[13] and by their hand is the force of the host, three hundred thousand, and seven thousand, and five hundred warriors, with mighty power to give help to the king against the enemy.
[14] And Uzziah prepareth for them, for all the host, shields, and spears, and helmets, and coats of mail, and bows, even to stones of the slings.
[15] And he maketh in Jerusalem inventions-a device of an inventor-to be on the towers, and on the corners, to shoot with arrows and with great stones, and his name goeth out unto a distance, for he hath been wonderfully helped till that he hath been strong.
[16] And at his being strong his heart hath been high unto destruction, and he trespasseth against Jehovah his God, and goeth in unto the temple of Jehovah to make perfume upon the altar of perfume.
[17] And Azariah the priest goeth in after him, and with him priests of Jehovah eighty, sons of valour,
[18] and they stand up against Uzziah the king, and say to him, ‘Not for thee, O Uzziah, to make perfume to Jehovah, but for priests, sons of Aaron, who are sanctified to make perfume; go forth from the sanctuary, for thou hast trespassed, and it is not to thee for honour from Jehovah God.’
[19] And Uzziah is wroth, and in his hand is a censer to make perfume, and in his being wroth with the priests-the leprosy hath risen in his forehead, before the priests, in the house of Jehovah, from beside the altar of perfume.
[20] And Azariah the head priest looketh unto him, and all the priests, and lo, he is leprous in his forehead, and they hasten him thence, and also he himself hath hastened to go out, for Jehovah hath plagued him.
[21] And Uzziah the king is a leper unto the day of his death, and inhabiteth a separate house-a leper, for he hath been cut off from the house of Jehovah, and Jotham his son is over the house of the king, judging the people of the land.
[22] And the rest of the matters of Uzziah, the first and the last, hath Isaiah son of Amoz the prophet written;
[23] and Uzziah lieth with his fathers, and they bury him with his fathers, in the field of the burying-place that the kings have, for they said, ‘He is a leper;’ and reign doth Jotham his son in his stead.
