Jotham rules Judah
1 Jotham was 25 years old when he began to rule his country. He ruled for 16 years in Jerusalem. His mother's name was Jerusha, the daughter of Zadok. 2 He did the things that his father Uzziah had done. He did things that gave pleasure to the Lord. But he did not do one thing that his father had done. He did not try to go into the Lord's temple to burn oils with sweet smells. But the people still did very wrong things.
