Chapter 26 Now all the people of Judah took Isaiah Who was 16 years old and made him King Instead of his father amaziah He built elath and restored it to Judah After the king rested with his fathers Isaiah was 16 years old when he became King and he reigned 52 years in Jerusalem His mother's name was jacariah of Jerusalem And he did what was right in the sight Of the Lord according to all that his Father amaziah had done He sought God in the days of Zechariah Who had understanding in the visions of God And as long as he sought the Lord God made him prosper Now he went out and made war against the Philistines and broke down the wall of Gath the wall of jabna and the wall of Ashdod And he built cities around ashdod and Among the Philistines God helped him against the Philistines Against the Arabians who lived in Gurbail and against the Mi unites Also the ammonites brought tribute to Isaiah His Fame spread as far as the entrance Of Egypt for he became exceedingly Strong And Isaiah built Towers in Jerusalem at

The corner gate of the valley gate and At the corner buttress of the wall Then he fortified them Also he built Towers in the desert He dug many Wells for he had much Livestock both in the lowlands and in The plains He also had farmers and fine dresses in The mountains and in Carmel for he loved The soil Moreover Isaiah had an army of fighting Men who went out to War by companies According to the number on their role as Prepared by Gile The Scribe and mayasir The officer under the hand of hananaya One of the king's captains The total number of Chief officers of The Mighty Men of Valor was 2600. And under their Authority was an army of 307 500 that made war with Mighty power To help the king against the enemy Then azaya prepared for them for the Entire army shields Spears helmets body Armor bows and slings to cast stones And he made devices in Jerusalem Invented by skillful men to be on the Towers and the corners to shoot arrows And large stones So his Fame spread far and wide for he Was marvelously helped till he became Strong But when he was strong his heart was Lifted up to his destruction For he transgressed against the Lord his

God by entering the Temple of the Lord To burn incense on the altar of incense So Azariah the priest went in after him And with him were 80 Priests of the Lord Valiant men And they withstood King Isaiah and said To him It is not for you Isaiah to burn incense To the Lord but for the priests the sons Of Aaron who are consecrated to burn Incense Get out of the sanctuary for you have Trespassed you shall have no honor from The Lord God Then Isaiah became Furious And he had a sensor in his hand to burn Incense And while he was angry with the priests Leprosy broke out on his forehead before The priests in the house of the Lord Beside the incense altar And Azariah the chief priest and all the Priests looked at him and there on his Forehead he was leprous So they thrust him out of that place Indeed he also hurried to get out Because the Lord had struck him King Isaiah was a leper until the day of His death He dwelt in an isolated house because he Was a leper For he was cut off from the house of the Lord Then jotham his son was over the King's

House judging the people of the land Now the rest of the acts of Isaiah from First to last The prophet Isaiah the son of Amos wrote So Isaiah rested with his fathers And they buried him with his fathers in The field of burial which belonged to The Kings For they said He is a leper Then jotham his son reigned in his place
