8 Ama-Amon amnika u-Uziya umnikelo. Igama lakhe laduma, lada laya kufika ekungeneni kweYiputa; ngokuba womelela wada wenyuka.
9 U-Uziya wakha iinqaba ezinde eYerusalem, esangweni lembombo, nasesangweni lomfula, nasembombeni yodonga, wazinqabisa ke.
10 Wakha iinqaba ezinde entlango, wemba amaqula amaninzi; ngokuba imfuyo yakhe yabe ininzi kwelentili nakwelamathafa. Ubenabalimi bomhlaba nabezidiliya ezintabeni naseKarmele; ngokuba wayethanda ukulima umhlaba.

12 Lonke inani leentloko zezindlu zooyise, lamagorha anobukroti, lalingamawaka amabini anamakhulu mathandathu.
13 Ngaphantsi kwabo, impi ephuma umkhosi yayingamakhulu amathathu amawaka, anamawaka asixhenxe, anamakhulu mahlanu alwayo, anamandla obukroti ukumnceda ukumkani elutshabeni.
14 U-Uziya wawalungiselela, emkhosini wonke, iingweletshetshe, nezikhali, nezigcina-ntloko, neengubo zentsimbi, nezaphetha, namatye okusawula.

17 UAzariya umbingeleli wamlandela, enababingeleli bakaYehova abangamashumi asibhozo, amadoda anobukroti.
18 Bammela u-Uziya ukumkani, bathi kuye, Asikokwakho, Uziya, ukuqhumisela kuYehova; kokwababingeleli, oonyana baka-Aron abangcwaliselwa ukuqhumisela; phuma engcweleni, ngokuba wenza ubumenemene; akuluzuko oko kuwe phambi koYehova uThixo.
19 Wajala u-Uziya, ephethe ngesandla isiqhumiso sokuqhumisela. Uthe esabajalele ababingeleli, kwasuka kwaphuma iqhenqa ebunzini lakhe phambi kwababingeleli endlwini kaYehova, engasesibingelelweni sokuqhumisela.

22 Ezinye izinto zikaUziya, ezokuqala nezokugqibela, wazibhala uIsaya unyana ka-Amotsi, umprofeti.
23 U-Uziya walala kooyise; bamngcwabela ngakooyise emhlabeni wokungcwaba wookumkani; ngokuba bathi, Uneqhenqa. UYotam, unyana wakhe, waba ngukumkani esikhundleni sakhe.
