    The key verse is there in 2 Chronicles 26:16: "But when he was strong, his heart was lifted up to his destruction: for he transgressed against the LORD his God, and went into the temple of the LORD to burn incense upon the altar of incense."

    Uzziah was a great king, served the Lord well, mighty in battle & helped his people. But all his abilities & fame got to his head, & he greatly transgressed by usurping the duties of the priests by burning incense in the Temple. For this grave error, he became leprous & remained so till the day of his death.

    A New Testament correlation for us could be found in 1 Corinthians 10:12: "Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall." We can learn from Uzziah's downfall if we too start to become overly confident in our abilities & accomplishments, believing that we're in a strong position that prevents us from any error. It is when we lose sight of God & of our utter reliance upon Him for both our physical & spiritual lives, that we fall into the temptation that we are as 'gods' having the power & authority to do anything. God may just have to put our "thigh out of joint" ( Genesis 32:25) as He did to Jacob, to remind us from whence our strengths & blessings come from & not to usurp God's Authority over our lives.

    Yes it means he was buried with his fathers. his kin In this, it don't mean to lie with have sex someone.
  • King Uzziah overstepped his bounds by trying to offer incense. This was a privilege that only the priests were to have, but God humbled him by striking him with leprosy.
  • Brianna on 2 Chronicles 26
    The term lay with their fathers is a poetic way of saying being buried in the same place as the forefathers. Verse 23 in this chapter can confirm this.

    Deborah K. Genesis 19:30,31,32,33; His daughters "lie with our father that we might preserve his seed." They gave him wine, had sex with him, hoping to become pregnant.
    "Lay with" typically means have sex with; if that is the context of the verse.
  • Lu2677 on 2 Chronicles 26
    Deborah K. If you are asking about 2 Chronicles 26:23 "slept with his father" or sleep; it means death.
  • Deborah kohler on 2 Chronicles 26
    what does it mean when the bible says they lay with their fathers, I don't understand
  • John Norton on 2 Chronicles 26:15
    I find it interesting to compare the Bible with our history books. According to the history books give us the idea these seige machines which the cunning men made for King Uzziah, weren 't made until the medieval times. According to encyclopedias and history books the Greek were the first to use them, then they became part of the medieval European wars. God is still well ahead in helping man when we rely upon Him.

    want to have full knowledge of the word of God.
  • Matt Mcgill Jr on 2 Chronicles 26
    As a revelation of prosperity, money, there is no age for whom God chooses to show out with regardless of pedigree, etc..This scripture is saying "there is no broke king " and Uzziah was seeking understanding and that s what we got to do.
  • Ephraim k. Nule on 2 Chronicles 26:5
    It is important to have a prophets and to walk in the direction which is given to him from God, because the scriptures says that God delivers His people by a prophet and by a prophet they were preserved.
  • So many times we see leaders--in politics and even in the church. They get in over their heads in a sinful behavior. They think they can handle the situation and don't have to heed anyone's counsel. They are headed for disaster. Let us beware that we believers don't fall the same way.
