King Uzziah with leprosy

The son of Amaziah and Jecholiah. At the age of sixteen he was made king of Judah. He built Eloth, and restored it to Judah. He reigned for fifty-two years in Jerusalem. When he burned incense in the Temple of Jerusalem, a privilege solely of the priests, he was smitten with leprosy. Upon his death he was succeeded by his son Jotham.
