1 a 27:1–9 Cp. 2 Kgs. 15:33–38 . Jotham was twenty-five years old when he came to the throne, and he reigned in Jerusalem for sixteen years; his mother was Jerushah daughter of Zadok. 2He did what was right in the eyes of the LORD, as his father Uzziah had done, but unlike him he did not enter the temple of the LORD; the people, however, continued their corrupt practices. 3He constructed the Upper Gate of the house of the LORD and built extensions on the wall at Ophel. 4He built towns in the hill-country of Judah, and forts and towers on the wooded hills. 5He made war on the king of the Ammonites and defeated him; and that year the Ammonites delivered to him a hundred talents of silver, ten thousand kor of wheat, and ten thousand of barley. They paid him the same tribute in the second and third years. 6Jotham became very powerful because he maintained a steady course of obedience to the LORD his God. 7The other events of Jotham's reign, all that he did in war and in peace, are recorded in the annals of the kings of Israel and Judah. 8He was twenty-five years old when he came to the throne, and he reigned in Jerusalem for sixteen years. 9He rested with his forefathers and was buried in the city of David. His son Ahaz succeeded him.
