The son of Amaziah, Uzziah (also called Azariah) is another righteous king of Judah—though he also continues to let the high places exist. He's afflicted with leprosy and stays sequestered away from the rest of the population, allowing his son Jotham to see to the daily business of running things. All this is good practice for when Jotham becomes king, as he eventually does.
