The death of King Azariah (2 Kings 15:6-15:7)

“Now the rest of the acts of King Azariah, and all that he did, are they not written in the Book of the Annals of the Kings of Judah? King Azariah slept with his ancestors. They buried him with his ancestors in the city of David. His son King Jotham succeeded him.”

Once again, there is so little explanation of this long rule, when other kings get so much ink. Of course, you could always refer to that lost “Book of the Annals of the Kings of Israel,” if you could find it.   He died and was buried in Jerusalem with his ancestors. There is no mention of a special burial site here.
