Uzziah Reigns in Judah
18They took their stand against King Uzziah and said, “Uzziah, you have no right to offer incense to the LORD. Only the priests, the descendants of Aaron, are consecrated to burn incense. Leave the sanctuary, for you have acted unfaithfully; you will not receive honor from the LORD God.” 19Uzziah, with a censer in his hand to offer incense, was enraged. But while he raged against the priests in their presence in the house of the LORD before the altar of incense, leprosy broke out on his forehead. 20When Azariah the chief priest and all the priests turned to him and saw his leprous forehead, they rushed him out. Indeed, he himself hurried to get out, because the LORD had afflicted him.…

2 Chronicles 25:16

(19) Then.--And.

Was wroth.--Za?af i.e., foamed with anger.

And had.--And in his hand was a censer (Ezekiel 8:11).

Even.--Omit.

Rose up.--Zarah. The word is not used in this sense elsewhere.

From beside--i.e., near, hard by.

Uzziah's punishment was the same as that which fell upon Miriam (Numbers 12:10) and Gehazi (2Kings 5:27). Thenius, while asserting the historical character of Uzziah's invasion of the sanctuary, declares that the chronicler has followed traditional exegesis in making the king's leprosy a judgment upon his offence. At all events, we may be sure that the chronicler has given the story as he found it in the history of Uzziah, to which he alludes in 2Chronicles 26:22. . . .

Verse 19. - Render, Then Uzziah was wrath, and in his hand (at that moment) was a censer to burn incense, etc. From the most literal rendering of the Hebrew text, not unfrequently the most forcible Bible English results. From beside; render, at the very side of (comp. Numbers 12:10; 2 Kings 5:27).
