Bible verses about Uzziah's Pride
(From Forerunner Commentary)

2 Chronicles 26:16   (Go to this verse :: Verse pop-up)

Uzziah presumptuously disregarded God's Word, which says that only the priests were to do this responsibility. Success after success had spoiled his character. He became arrogant, conceited, filled with inordinate self-esteem. His heart was lifted up with pride, and he tried to emulate the Oriental kings around him and become a priest also.

Why Three Kings Are Missing From Matthew 1


 

2 Chronicles 26:19-21   (Go to this verse :: Verse pop-up)

Josephus relates an interesting story, although there is no telling how true it is. He writes that the earthquake mentioned by Amos in Amos 1:1 (where the prophet writes that he prophesied two years before the earthquake), occurred when Uzziah entered the sanctuary. Further, he says that the roof of the sanctuary was torn or rent by the quake, and a ray of sunlight drilled into the Temple, striking Uzziah in the forehead. The shaft of light was quickly obscured, but the leprosy remained. Tradition says that this was the hand of God, showing His displeasure at the presumptuous pride of this man, whom He had blessed so greatly and who now felt infallible, above doing wrong, and that his word had become law.

Again, we see a man who started out marvelously, but when confronted late in life with the truth and told to repent for turning away—God was trying to save him from his destructive course—Uzziah refused.
