During the time of Jeroboam II in 784 BC, the seventeenth king of northern Israel, the people of Judah took Uzziah, whose name means “God is my strength” and made him king over his father Amaziah. Uzziah was a talented and creative man who loved the soil. He invented many things and had them built to prosper Judah in this era. Interestingly, Uzziah was also known as Azariah (SEE 2 KINGS 1 4 : 2 1 ) , which means “the God who aids.” He, indeed, was a king who needed aid later in his life when his pride took over, and his son Jotham had to reign in his place.
Uzziah was the thirteenth king of Judah, and for most of his life he was good and loved the LORD. It was only later in his life that his pride rose up and he entered the Temple of the LORD and attempted to offer a sacrifice on his own, disregarding the priests who were the only ones consecrated by God to burn incense. We should always pursue God’s commands.
