(3) And he did that which was right.--This statement is repeated word for word in Chronicles. Its exact meaning here, as in other instances, is that Azariah supported the legitimate worship, and lent his countenance to no foreign cultus. When the chronicler adds that he "sought God in the days of (the prophet) Zachariah," and that "as long as he sought Jehovah, God made him to prosper," he does not contradict the preceding general estimate of the king's religious policy, but simply gives additional information respecting his life and fortunes.

Verse 3. - And he did that which was right in the sight of the Lord, according to all that his father Amaziah had done (comp. 2 Kings 14:3 and 2 Chronicles 26:4). Josephus uses still stronger expressions. "Azariah was," he says (l.s.c.), "a good king, naturally just and high-minded, and indefatigable in his administration of affairs." According to the author of Chronicles (2 Chronicles 26:5), he "sought God in the days of Zechariah." 15:1-7 Uzziah did for the most part that which was right. It was happy for the kingdom that a good reign was a long one.
