Jotham

Michelangelo Jotham was the son and successor of Uzziah, tenth king of Judah. As Uzziah was struck by leprosy and unable to rule for the last few years of his life, Jotham ruled in his stead.

After Uzziah died, Jotham became the sole monarch and reigned for sixteen years. It was a prosperous reign during which the king did just about everything right. He did extensive construction work on the Temple; he built towns, forts and towers; he defeated the Ammonites in battle.

Jotham grew powerful because he walked steadfastly before the LORD his God. (2 Chronicles 27:6)

He died aged 41. He was buried in the sepulchre of the kings, greatly lamented by the people. His son Ahaz suceeded him as king.
