2 Chronicles 25-27
- 25:14 – The Israelites were often temped into worshipping other gods, but normally not as quickly and blatantly as Amaziah. God had just blessed Amaziah with a war victory, which to the people of that time, was a sign that the God of the victorious army was more powerful. It seems odd that he would immediately turn to a lesser god.
- 26:3-15 – This section chronicles the faithful days of Uzziah.
- 26:16-21 – Like the chronicler tends to do (i.e. Joash) he splits the account of the faithful days of a king from the unfaithful days of a king. This section chronicles Uzziah’s unfaithful days.
- 26:19 – Having leprosy meant that King Uzziah was unclean and would need to be separated from the rest of the Israelites.
- 26:23 – He was buried in a field owned by kings instead of in the burial tombs where the rest of the kings were buried.
- 27:2 – The chronicler here is commending Jotham for not entering the temple. That was the sin Uzziah committed. He entered the parts he was not allowed.
