2 Chronicles 26

6 He went to war against the Philistines…He then rebuilt towns…7 God helped him against the Philistines and against the Arabs… 8 his fame spread as far as the border of Egypt, because he had become very powerful.


2 Chronicles 26

9 Uzziah built towers in Jerusalem… 10 He also built towers in the desert and dug many cisterns, because he had much livestock in the foothills and in the plain… 11 Uzziah had a well-trained army…307,500 men trained for war… 14 Uzziah provided shields, spears, helmets, coats of armor, bows and slingstones for the entire army. 15 In Jerusalem he made machines designed by skillful men for use on the towers and on the corner defenses to shoot arrows and hurl large stones. 


2 Chronicles 26

15 …His fame spread far and wide, for he was greatly helped ~ until ~ he became powerful. 


2 Chronicles 26

16 But after Uzziah became powerful, his pride led to his downfall. He was unfaithful to the LORD his God, and entered the temple of the LORD to burn incense on the altar of incense. 


2 Chronicles 26

17 Azariah the priest with eighty other courageous priests of the LORD followed him in. 18 They confronted him and said, "It is not right for you, Uzziah, to burn incense to the LORD. That is for the priests, the descendants of Aaron, who have been consecrated to burn incense. Leave the sanctuary, for you have been unfaithful; and you will not be honored by the LORD God." 


2 Chronicles 26

19 Uzziah, who had a censer in his hand ready to burn incense, became angry. While he was raging at the priests in their presence before the incense altar in the LORD's temple, leprosy broke out on his forehead. 


2 Chronicles 26

20 When Azariah the chief priest and all the other priests looked at him, they saw that he had leprosy on his forehead, so they hurried him out. Indeed, he himself was eager to leave, because the LORD had afflicted him. 21 King Uzziah had leprosy until the day he died. He lived in a separate house--leprous, and excluded from the temple of the LORD. Jotham his son had charge of the palace and governed the people of the land.
