And he did that which was right in the sight of the LORD, according to all that his father Uzziah did: howbeit he entered not into the temple of the LORD. And the people did yet corruptly.
He did — He did according to all that his father Uzziah did; except in his miscarriages. We must not imitate those we have the greatest esteem for, any farther than we do well; but their failings must be warnings to us, to walk more circumspectly.
 He built the high gate of the house of the LORD, and on the wall of Ophel he built much.
Built — Repaired it: for it was built before, chap. 11:5.
