Jotham was the eleventh king of Judah. Jotham was 25 crowned king. He reigned for 16 years. Jotham inherited a strong government, well officered and administered. He built the Upper Gate of the Temple of Jerusalem. He built cities in the mountains of Judah, and in the forests, he built castles and towers. He did what was right in the eyes of the Lord, just as his father Uzziah had done, but unlike him, he did not enter the temple. The people, however, continued their corrupt practices.
