This chapter gives us an account of the reign of
Uzziah (Azariah he was called in the Kings) more fully than we had
it before, though it was long, and in some respects illustrious,
yet it was very briefly related, 2 Kings xiv. 21; xv. 1, &c. Here
is, I. His good character in general, ver. 1-5. II. His great prosperity in his
wars, his buildings, and all the affairs of his kingdom, ver. 6-15. III. His presumption in
invading the priests' office, for which he was struck with a
leprosy, and confined by it (ver.
16-21) even to his death, ver. 22, 23.
